Michelle Stephens thinks…

"Cool vibe, neat decor and painting, soft/clean bedding, and quiet for sleeping, but loud if you head to the bar/common areas."

Liked: The bed with the enormous great blanket is super. Some dorms are a little bit cramped, but it depends which dorm you book. It's very nearby plaza de armas. It's very safe and you can use the lockers in reception and ofcourse in your dorm.

Disliked: WIFI doesn't work all the time good.

Liked: looks really cool, nice rooms, good showers, good sized lockers with power sockets in them. good breakfasts available to buy

Disliked: it's almost too big, found it hard to meet others as it's very spread out. The wifi never worked for me and they had no solution as to why not. Lots of people use this as a base for the Machu Picchu trip so many people are either in bed really early or getting up at 4am to leave, so not quite as a fun a place as i would have thought form the look of the place. A great place for groups of travellers, maybe not the best in cusco for those travelling alone

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. I twas located near places to eat and lots of sights. The food was good and the drinks were reasonably prices. It was a great place to meet people and the beds were comfortable.

Disliked: It was a little noisy at times and the staff needs to pay more attention to things like having matches in the guest kitchen and a pen to write you name on your food.

Liked: This is the best ´big´hostel I´ve stayed in. It´s in a lovely collonial building, but all the rooms etc are painted really funky and spotlessly clean. The rec room and bar are brilliant and the internet is fast. Staff are good too. The duvets are really comfy and loads of lockers. Very good place to meet people and very central. It´s very well thought-out with the backpacker in mind.

Disliked: The internet went off twice during my one night stay - not sure if this happens often.

Liked: Good beds and good showers. Some of the staff (not all) were really friendly and helpful. The guy who worked in the evenings was great. Nice courtyard.

Disliked: Noisy, which I didn´t expect because they make a big deal about being quiet and chilled out. Also, I booked and confirmed an airport pick-up via email but no-one was there to meet me. I waited a long time and finally gave up and got a cab. When I asked about it they said "we called the airline and they said your flight might be cancelled due to the weather". Poor excuse as my flight left Lima on time and arrived in Cusco on time!

Liked: The Hostel is clean and is one of those megahostels. It is big and very well organized. You can leave your backpacks and just go to Machu Pichu or wherever. They have a big storage room. You have everything in there and lots of activities and parties going on all the time.

Liked: lots of activites on site, good bar. hot showers though not always very clean. This is due to people tramping mud up the walls, not the poor cleaners.

Disliked: There were quite a few people with problems paying, being charged the wrong amount. also you often have to move rooms each day so you have to check out and check back in which is incredibly annoying. This is not a place to syay if you want peace and quiet.
