Liked: The hostel didn't have our booking made on hostelbookers.com and even admitted a clerical error. However, they did send us to their partner hostel which was very good.

Disliked: Only one thing was the door to our room could not be locked properly.

Liked: The breakfasts were above-average, with yogurt and cereal on some days and eggs available everyday, in addition to the usual rolls and jam. Marlon and the rest of the staff are friendly and the wifi is fast and works well. Best of all, in my opinion, is that this is a quiet and homey place. I was alone in my dorm room two of the three nights, even though it was the busy season. Highly recommended.

Disliked: There is just one shower and one toilet for all of the dorm rooms, and these are badly situated next to the dining area. Also, be aware that Marlon tacks 7% onto credit card charges.

Liked: I stayed here for two weeks while taking Spanish lessons in Cusco, and I absolutely loved this hostel. The dorms are clean, the shower is hot and the breakfast is fantastic (eggs, cereal, fruits, bread, jam and coffee). There's hot water for tea through out the day and the courtyard is a cozy place to hang out. The staff are incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful as well. If I ever return to Cusco, I will definitely stay here again.

Disliked: Anna left no negative feedback.

Liked: Extremely friendly and attentive staff; excellent on-demand breakfast from 6-10am; excellent rates.

Disliked: The downstairs private room (with en suite bathroom) has virtually no sound barrier between itself and the common area. You can hear every conversation that happens. Also, sometimes embarrassingly, the people in the common area can hear every sound that comes from your bathroom. We did laundry through the hostel and it came back extremely late. Use other nearby lavanderias that charge less money for faster service.

Liked: Property had a secure entry system, beds were comfortable and it was a quiet place if you required that before an early start or a long trek.

Disliked: No idea why this property is rated so highly. Awful breakfast, unfriendly staff, tiny (and I mean tiny) kitchen. One computer, the internet on which was hugely unreliable (which wouldnt usually be a problem but would be handy when booking tours/checking compànies in Cusco.

Liked: Great Hostel, extremly friendly staff, nice atmosphere and really comfy beds! The Hostel itsself looks really nice and cosy. Staff is always very very helpful with any question you have and speak all english, if you like to. They have a travel agency next door so you can ask them everything but they never even mentioned it, that we could or should book with them, so absolutely no presure! Be aware that cusco is more expensive than other cities in peru, so the prices here are a bit higher, but really ok. The breakfast ist nice when you got scrambled eggs, but till now i never was sure if you will get them always or not, depended on the staff, most of the time i got them ;) You are really near to Plaza de Armas and the big central market. So my tip: If you want to have great cheap breakfast, just go to the market before, get you some avocados and amazing handmade cheese (for like 50cents) and enjoy it with the hostel breakfast!

Disliked: The shower sometimes didnt give me hot water, sometimes yes, but nothing serious.
