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

Disliked: Took 20+ minutes to get anything done (check-in/out, ask questions, get help, etc.) because there's almost always a line out the door at reception, no hot water, the sinks don't stay on so when you wash your face you have to keep pressing the knob every few seconds, the bathroom is just open to the entire common area. It's one thing to share restrooms with a few people who are in the restroom at the same time, but another to share with everyone at the hostel. No dry areas to set your bag down. The workers don't listen when you ask a question or try to explain anything. There is no nice place to hang out...the courtyard gets very cold at night and the upstairs common areas close. WORST THING: you only get wifi outside. So basically, you freeze long enough to send one email, then go scurrying back to your room. (You can get wifi in one other room but the chairs are taken 24/7 - mostly by people sleeping in there.)

Liked: We stayed in a private double room with bathroom and found this better than other hotels we have stayed at for the same price. We are older than the average age if backpackers but found this place catered for all types of travellers. Service,security, cleanliness and atmosphere was excellent.

Liked: A good mix of social and chill out unlike the other hostels I visited in the area. Gives you the options. Good Wi-fi access.

Disliked: The members of staff, bar 1 or 2, always seemed very put out to help you. not friendly at all, despite having best staff of 2013 certificate on the wall, I can only assume they all left!! This was the view of a lot of fellow guests their.

Liked: Everything - good facilities, atmosphere, friendly staff, good value for money. They safely store your luggage whilst you are off touring around the area, and the baggage room is locked and under video surveillance.

Disliked: Nickname is partywana - loud, terrible pop and dance music blasting until 2am on saturday night makes sleeping difficult, which is annoying if you have to get up early to travel to machu picchu.

Liked: Awesome hostel - really cool building with spacious dorms, lots going on, and great food and drinks. The location was perfect too, and the reception staff really lovely. I had a really fun time here.

Disliked: Wifi could be a bit iffy, but it wasn't enough of a problem to impact my stay, and besides, they have free-to-use computers which were always working just fine.

Liked: This is a well put-together hostel that, while lacking in atmosphere a bit, has everything you need - helpful staff, a good-sized computer room, plenty of bathrooms, a decent bar. And it's in a great location, just next to Plaza San Francisco and three blocks from the Plaza Mayor.

Disliked: I actually wanted something with more character and atmosphere. This IS in a pretty building but has the overall feeling of a bored backpacker hangout. Other hostels in Cusco offer more when it comes to well-preserved buildings full of atmosphere.

Liked: The linen, beds and rooms were really nice and comfy. Awesome courtyard with lots of room to sit around in the sun and relex, or play some table tennis or fooseball. The bar/dining room had a great atmosphere - good food and drinks and staff. Probably the best hostel we stayed at in South America!
