Pirwa San Blas is a bright, cozy, and relaxed hotel offering both private rooms with television and private bathrooms as well as dormitory-style accommodations with shared bathrooms. Our low prices include a free continental breakfast, free Wi-Fi and internet access, and self-serve mate de coca all day long, along with comfortable beds and 24hr access to hot water.

The hostel is situated in the bohemian neighborhood of San Blas, only four blocks up from the main square of Cusco (the Plaza de Armas). San Blas is the historic artists’ district, where cobblestone streets lined with galleries, artisan workshops and studios make it popular with travelers. Its higher altitude provides some beautiful views overlooking the rest of the city. It’s also known for its quality restaurants and bars, so you’ll find yourself well-placed to enjoy the culture and life of Cusco.

If you’d rather stay in, you can fix yourself a snack in the communal kitchen, but when you’re ready to explore Cusco, our friendly staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have or assist in arranging excursions or transport. While you’re out, your valuables will be secure in your own security locker. For cheap lodging that doesn’t skimp on comfort, security, and community, you can’t beat Pirwa Hostel Backpackers Familiar!

With its social room, patio and common kitchen it is still a great place to meet travellers, but in a more relaxed atmosphere.

Check out the top floor rooms with its panel glass roof parts, you`ll be able to enjoy the stars in the sky from your bed.
Prices are per person per night.
