22 March 2010 Alison would recommend this property

Liked: Lovely place to stay, with relaxing atmosphere and ridiculously friendly staff always willing to help. Perfect hot showers (just ask the lady to put the boiler on first). The cat was great too. We were very comfortable here, and will stay again when we return to Cuzco to catch a flight.

16 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This was a very nice place to stay in- on a lovely street near the centre, and close to plenty of restaurants. Rosa was a huge help to us in organising tours and vaccinations, and the gorgeous kitten running around provided much entertainment! The breakfast was just the ordinary bread, jam and coffee, and the kitchen was very basic (and you were to pay 10 soles to use the oven, not that we needed it). And sometimes the showers were cold! But it was a great base from which to see Cuzco and the Sacred Valley. A very relaxed atmosphere.

Liked: It is a lovely quiet hostel - good value, and in beautiful san blas. We stayed longer than planned, staff were very helpful, our skylight leaked though which was a problem in the big rains of the season, and the water stopped working one night. not very lively - but that suited us fine, they have a lovely kitten and the kitchen is just fine. staff helped us a lot in booking bus - especially as we had to change due to blockade on the way to lima. nice place.

16 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Less than 5 minute walk to Plaza de Armas. Excellent, reliable hot water. Very quiet at night. Friendly, helpful staff, although one gave us the business card for a different branch of Pirwa hostel, and this resulted in our Inca trail bus picking us up from the wrong location, because we gave them the address from the card. Very clean. Staff speak English. Communal kitchen and lounge. Cute kitten on premises. Breakfast a generous bonus at this price, however is not adequate (just bread and jam, always hungry after an hour).
