Apesar de o ambiente ser aconchegante e bonito, os funcionários são mal preparados, fizeram uma verdadeira confusão com as nossas reservas. O chuveiro também foi um ponto crítico: os banhos sempre começavam quentes e terminavam congelantes. A internet é precária e não funciona nos quartos. Mudamos de hostel na metade da estadia pois não havia condições de continuar tomando banho frio nas noites de Cusco.

Don't book through HI: doesn't reserve room @ location. Also, they often run out of "women only" dorms, so if you book it's likely you'll be in a mixed dorm regardless. Overall my stay was nice. The beds are comfortable, the staff friendly and the location is super convenient. The wi-fi is super to the lobby area &works sparingly. Tours out of Cusco start at all hours, so guests will be in and out of the room all night. That will happen anywhere. This hostel is clean, friendly, and quiet.

Cuando llegamos nos dijeron que no les había llegado nuestra reserva y que no tenían habitación para nosotras las 3 noches que habíamos solicitado. Nos dieron alternativas, pero si yo recibí la confirmación con un número de reserva siento que me engañaron diciéndome tonterías y haciéndome cambiar 3 veces de lugar

Although it was high season, the hostal was a quiet place to relax. The friendly staff and beautiful interior made me feel like home immediately. To get to the central Plaza de Armas you have to walk some blocks, but you can reach the "hot spots" of Cusco easily from the hostal. Quick laundry service, and if you want they call you a reliable taxi.
