Not good for non smokers

Posted Jul 29, 2017 on Hotels
Not good for non-smokers. Hostal has a closed central living area surrounded by guest rooms where guests are allowed to smoke. Our room became filled with smoke and we could not open the windows to let the smoke out.

Dear Daisy, Smoking is not allowed in our hostel. Unfortunately sometimes people do not adhere to this rule and unfortunately one of those people happened to occupy the room before that. We are very sorry about that and will do our best to prevent any such situations again.

Nice hostel

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Stayed here in June 2017. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. Rustic. Nice family feel.

Great Value to Explore Cusco

Posted Jun 30, 2017
This hostal was a great value online, so I was prepared to be disappointed in person; I wasn't. The staff was friendly, offering to arrange my taxi to Poroy and keeping tabs on my location to ensure my safety. The tea station was always well stocked, and I enjoyed several cups of mate de coca while relaxing in their covered atrium. Breakfast every morning was free and fantastic - fried eggs, ham, juice, tea, bread, jam and coffee. The rooms themselves were unassuming but clean and functional. I had hot water, fairly stable wifi, and a freshly made bed each evening. Its Cusco, so people wake up early and start making all kinds of noise, but my room was relatively quiet. The location (7? blocks from the Plaza de Armas) was super convenient. All in all, an amazing place that was comfortable, friendly, and helpful as I explored Cusco and the Sacred Valley.

Good price and just right for the traveler

Posted Jun 25, 2017 on Hotels
This is a great place for the type of environment around Cusco's central district/plaza. I was initially worried about being right near the center of the forum, but, it's an old casona and that's their design. Yep, when the traveler's come in late or rise earlier you hear it, but, this is the environment and you're probably doing the same like I did. The staff are excellent. Always clean, helpful with suggestions and recommendations, and try to make you as comfortable as possible. It's near transportation and close to laundry and food establishments. Comfortable bed, daily service if you want. For what I was doing, it worked fine.and I got the rest I needed and the services I wanted. Good to stay and try to enjoy the festivities and sites.

Rustic hotel near city center.

Posted May 28, 2017
Pros: Proximity to tourist activities, friendly staff.
Cons: Comfort of rooms and lighting in dining room.
Location: This hotel is within a ten minute walk of all the main attractions in Cusco, including the Plaza de Armas.
This hotel had a really nice breakfast and was within walking distance of the historic parts of Cusco. We never had to take a taxi to go out for dinner and felt safe in the area. However, it was missing some of the comforts that American travelers may expect. For example, it was unusually cold while we were there and the hotel did not have central heat. Also, there seemed to be some kind of mold growing on the wall. Overall, I would recommend it because it was a great value and seemed to be much nicer than some of the other similarly priced options.

Affordable and nice

Posted Dec 23, 2016
Ambient is cute. Person who checked me in was very helpful. We had one of our suitcases missing from another hostel we had stayed at and he helped by calling them and then helped us get a taxi to go get it. Room was clean but could use newer beds. We stayed in a room facing the street and it was very loud. Cars and dogs all night long. Breakfast was good and the let us stay a little longer while we waited for our transfer in the lobby. City square was about a 15 minute walk. Overall if it's just for 1 or 2 nights then I'd recommend it.
