  • Spent a few nights here in a 6 bed dorm. Had all the security essentials you need (big lockers in dorms, lockable charging boxes, front door buzzer), clean, comfortable, quiet, excellent location, probably the best value for money hostels we stayed at in Cusco and we stayed at a few. Has a kitchen, bar, included breakfast, movie/dvd room, pool table and ping pong table! We liked that it had a chilled atmosphere but was not a crazy party hostel so we could get some sleep too!

  • Way too loud. Staff is nice but doesn't care about people who want to sleep at nights and join the parties and get way too drunk and start being very outrageous near the rooms.
