Liked: Breakfast starts at 4:30

Disliked: There was lots of mold in our room. Everything smelt a bit moldy and the sheets were dirty. This hostel is like most in Machu Picchu Pueblo: overpriced and making money of tourists visiting the ruins. My advice is to look for another hostel.

Liked: It offered breakfast and sent someone to pick us up at the train station.

Disliked: Our room had no exterior window - just a window facing a hallway. The sheets were clean but had some permanent stains on them. The place was deserted in January.

Liked: The Bed

Disliked: Everything else. they supposed to pick us up at the train station, we waited for 40 minutes and nothing. We had to walk and find the hostal, once there they didn´t have our key room and had to knocked the door to wake up the others guests to open the door. The bathroom was dirty and without paper.

Liked: I got there late and luckily got a train station pick up so I didn't have to navigate Aguas Calientes at night. It's a pretty chill property - nothing fancy but it really does serve its purpose as a stopover. Also there's wifi in the rooms and a shared TV.

Disliked: There's nowhere to put your things in the room so basically you leave it on the floor and have to trust the people you share with. Also only the bottom bunks have power outlets.

05 March 2013 Sam would recommend this property

Liked: We were very happy with our stay here. Having read through reviews of plenty of other accommodation in Aguas Calientes, we weren't expecting much, and we were pleasantly surprised. The beds were comfortable, the room was good, the hot water worked, and the staff were friendly and helpful and didn't try to rip us off on the exchange rate (as you hear many hotels/hostels in Aguas Calientes do) or anything else. Breakfast was basic, but the fact that it was available at 4.30am was handy for an early morning trip up to Machu Picchu.

Disliked: The only downside is that the hostel is on the uphill side of Aguas Calientes, so after a long tiring day at Machu Picchu, it's a bit of a walk uphill still to get there. But really, it's easily worth it to stay somewhere decent.

Liked: The staff, especially Julio and Juan Carlos and also Cesar were very friendly and helpful and did their best to offer us a great stay. Hostel is very clean and the location is also good, only a few minutes walk to the main square. It's an ideal place to start the trip to Machu Picchu.
