Is close to the plaza and has a good breakfast you can order at any time if you go quite early to Machu Picchu. WiFi is not quite good and the stairs are quite tricky so be careful. Good storage service.

In neither so charming or so relaxing nowadays Aguas Calientes, this hotel is rather well located in a very quite little side street, but easy to find and not too far away from the train station or the bus stand etc. and it offers a better than average breakfast selection.

The hostel is well located, we had 2 beds in a common room, but no one else was staying there. Shared bathrooms, not very clean. Mold almost everywhere, rooms and bathrooms. The staff is nice and helpful. Good breakfast in the morning. Good for a night before Macchu Pichu, not longer. Wifi only working in the lobby.

Good morning Ana, and thank you for writing a review for Pirwa Machu Picchu. We're glad that the staff and breakfast were to your looking, but regret that the state of the shared bathrooms weren’t up to standard during your stay- we’ll let housekeeping know that they should be checking them more often during the day, since these bathrooms are...

The people there are nice and helpful. Our room was a private room and it was clean,bed cozy , the view wasn't good, bathroom clean, the wifi only works in the lobby. Breakfast was basic it's better if you go to the mercado and eat caldo de gallina.

Good morning Izabelle, and thank you for writing us a review. We’re glad that the staff and the room were to your liking, despite the lack of a view. The network in Aguas Calientes isn’t that great, and sometimes it goes down completely, affecting local homes and businesses. On times when the signal is weak, we do recommend going to...

Hostel style room didn't have lockers in the room. Shower sprayed right on to the floor and soaked everything. Massive windows from the hallway peered right in to the bedroom. Banging noisy air/con units from adjacent rooms right by your head outside. 4:30 Am breakfast was not served at 4:30 like the signs said. Wifi was unusable with weak signal....

typical breakfast is included, it is a bit of a walk from the bus (10 minutes) and in a smelly alley, but not a terrible location as it is 2 minutes from the hot-springs (which I don't really recommend, they smell strongly of sulphur and will stain white clothes).
