Backpacking / gap year

24 July 2010 Kelly would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent hostel! In our 2 months backpacking South America, Home Sweet Home has been the best hostel we have stayed at.Luis the manager and his staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are delicious (eggs, pancakes, juice and coffee) and the hostel is really clean. The steps up are little hard-going at first but the view is totally worth it and the lounge room is sunny so perfect to relax in. We booked for 2 nights but ended up staying 7 (before and after our Salkantay trek). Definitely recommend this hostel!

Liked: Hostel was clean and tidy. A little loud at times (mainly early morning). When we came to pay the owners weren't there and the staff didn't take into account the 10% deposit paid, we had to phone owners to explain who then said it doesn't matter as they were charging a lower price than on hostelbookers, so just be aware they might try to pull one on money.

05 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great hostel, staff really friendly and Luis especially was really helpful. One of the best breakfasts i´ve had at hotels/hostels in Peru. Nice relaxed and friendly atmosphere with other travellers, really comfy bed. Steps up to hostel could be a bit of a killer if you´ve just arrived from sea level but are good prep for the Inca trail (as advertised). We left our luggage and valuables there while we did the Inca trail and they were well looked after. All in all a great hostel, would definitely recommend.

Liked: Luis the owner is fantastic, and helps you to settle in very well. Breakfast is also very nice and there are great views from the common area and the internet area. However, the rooms aren´t in great condition for the money that you are spending, and it is a full-on walk up a LOT of steps to get there. It is also really cold, and there are no heaters in the rooms, although the management are very happy to provide more blankets. They are extending to put in more rooms and a roof terrace, which will be lovely, but it would be better to clean up the rooms they already have, I think.

30 June 2009 Laura Gabriela would recommend this property

Liked: An great thing for us, having several trips after Cusco (but returning to Cusco a week later), was that we could leave the luggage in the storage for 8 days, so that we don't have to travel carrying everything.The girls handling the customers are very nice and offered to help anytime we needed.Bit difficult to find the place though, there should be more signs, in Plaza de Armas and Plazoleta San Blas maybe... There is one at Siete diablitos, but when you are almost there.Oh, and if you are new to the altitude, chew coca leaves to climb all the stairs and streets - but it's worth it.
