Stayed for 5 nights and have no complaints whatsoever. Great communication before we arrived and friendly service from everyone once we got there. Our room was clean,spacious and comfortable with a TV. Breakfast was simple but adequate...we did like the fact you could pay for extras like eggs etc. Great location just 5 mins from the Plaza de armas. Laundry...

Our large private room was freezing all night and the showers had little pressure and were also cold. If in this area try something else! However, laundry service was great (15 soles) and the staff was helpful in printing bus/ plane tickets.

Although the room was a little cold, we had plenty of blankets. The bed was fairly comfortable and the shower (private ensuite room) was hot. We didn't try the TV out, but we had one in our room. The staff were helpful and we were able to store our bags while we were away for our Inca Trail hike which...

We stayed at Hitchhikers for 4 nights and our stay was pleasant. Breakfast in Peru backpackers seem to be always the same. Bread, Butter and Jam. We had to pay extra for eggs. Although the staff did not speak great english, they were helpful and assisted us with basic information about Cusco.

We used this hostel as our base in Cusco, as we were trekking to MP and also visited Puerto Maldonado, so we stayed here for many nights. We had a twin room with private bathroom. You can get towels at reception (not the newest towels but they are clean). We ordered a taxi pick-up from airport. It's super close to...

We stayed here in July and found their double room upstairs to be nice and big but FREEZING COLD due to all the single-glazed windows. When it is cold outside coming home to a room which is equally as cold is not what you want! We had to sleep under 3 layers of the heaviest blankets ever just to stay...

Dear Jordan Nice to talk to you, unfortunately we don’t found any guest named Jordan in our system in July, it is because we want to know the bedroom you reserved and check the bedroom, about the weather in Cusco July is cold in this season, for that reason we put in all bedrooms extra blankets for the guest wish...

This hostel was everything we hoped for in Cusco. The rooms are great with plenty of space and nice bathrooms. Wifi throughout, we were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Although we stayed here only a few nights due to our itinerary, the hostel was more than willing for us to leave our backpacks in storage for a...

Really quiet hostal. Perfect for catching up on sleep. The wifi is good and available in the rooms. The bathroom was of good quality, but the shower was temperamental. The beds were comfortable and sufficient bedding was provided. They also have a kitchen which can be used by all, handy for those on a budget. I'd stay again but not...
