The room was nice and spacious and the bathroom proportionately big. The breakfast was very basic but I will not complain as for the price, it was decent and the coffee excellent. Location is hardly 2 minutes walk to the main cathedral. Lots of activities to do around the area. Just a word of advice, there are steps all the... More

This hostel is located behind the Cuzco Catedral, so is very convenient to explore the city on foot. The view from some rooms and the breakfast space to the historic center is stunning. The rooms are comfortable and have all the basics. You don't have a lot of variety at the breakfast table, but it gets the job done. The... More

I chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the Plaza, and it was great to be so close. The rooms were modern, clean, and cheaper than I had booked when it came to paying. However, I wasn't impressed at the customer service. Having just got back from my trek I politely asked if I could check into my... More

The location was amazing. Right next to Plaza de Armas. Great view of the old buildings. Clean, well kept, with a friendly staff. Only critique is the limited breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

No complaints about the place. It was clean, staff were excellent, breakfast was good, wifi was good and if there was ever a problem with it the receptionist would fix it. About as close as you'll get to the main square aswell great location.

We were right down from Plaza de Armas, so the location couldn't have been better. The staff was helpful with directions, taxis, and leaving our luggage. The breakfast had a large selection of eggs, cheese, cereals and fruit.

We had two great stays at El Triunfo either side of our Inca Trail trek. When we arrived early in the morning they gave us coca tea and let us sit upstairs until the room was ready. Both rooms we stayed in were spacious and clean with great hot showers. All the members of staff are super friendly and couldn't... More

I highly recommed this hostel, the staff was very helpful whenever I needed directions, book taxis or had general admin requests. It is very clean and modern, location is great, only a few minutes away from Plaza de Armas and to top it off, they have delicious breakfast too! Glad I chose this place to stay in Cusco.

Clean room, nice people, solid breakfast. You cannot ask for a better location. We had a nice little suite with a bathroom attached. It was not that noisy. I would definitely recommend to other travelers.
