It was clean and organized and had a good crowd of friendly employees. It's location was walking distance (about 15 minutes) from the Larcomar shopping center which overlooked the beach. It was also Very affordable as well.

Cuzco's Hostel was me and my partner's basecamp during our trip on August23-Sept17.
