Aengus Gormley thinks…

"Nice, secure hostel with good dorms - there are plug sockets inside the lockers which is a big plus. Nice terrace upstairs with a bar and a table tennis table. Bathrooms are excellent."

Liked: nice, comfy beds. every day and night there is something going on. location is excellent. the best bathrooms with hot water. i had some problems with the payment as they didn't want to recognise the price i has from my reservation with hostelbookers and wanted to charge me more. also their dollar exchange rate is really poor, so you lose a bit of money.

Disliked: the staff is often so busy that you have to wait long time at the reception. almost all the rooms don't have any window, so they are dark. the window of the bathroom in my dorm was to the room, so all the steam from the shower entered in the room and as there was no window, it was really hard to get some fresh air.

Liked: Very central and fun atmosphere.

Disliked: The staff is almost as interested in ripping you off as the people on the streets of Cusco. Even just asking what an average taxi costs for a location, they'll tell you a higher price than normal. Too bad...

Liked: Great place with very comfortable beds & soft, new linens. Super friendly & helpful staff. Great location too.

Disliked: It was a little too loud if you have a room off the courtyard. Ask for a room in the back if you want to get a better night sleep.

Liked: One of the best hostels we have stayed in in South America. Very clean, lovely courtyard to hang out in, great location and friendly staff. We moved here from the Wild Rover and it was sp much better (and we are Irish).

Disliked: We also stayed at the Pariwana in Lima and in both of the hostels there were big groups of a certain nationality who didnt mix with anyone and who were quite ignorant in general, but that seems to be the norm for them.

Liked: As hostels go in the area, its quite expensive but you can tell the difference. Stayed in two other hostels and this was by far the best. Shower good, bed good, internet access good, room good, cleanliness good, just good.

Disliked: Price was white expensive but as I said, you get what you pay for.
