Excellent place and great value for money - spacious rooms with bath, clean, helpful english-spoken staff, free internet, laundry service. Only 10 min walk from the Plaza del Armas. The street looks a bit shabby but once you're inside the nice courtyard you'll be pleasantly surprised!

After our "organized trip" of the Cusco area, I decided to stay a couple of days with my two children. We were planning on doing an Andean Home Stay, but couldn't confirm that until we got to Cusco, so I booked a hostal that if I had to loose a night, it wouldn't cost a fortune. The people that run...

The best hostel of our two month stay so far. So good we stayed for nearly two weeks (with a negotiated long stay discount) which excluded breakfast. Beautiful, bright courtyard, big airy rooms, private bathroom with very hot shower, spotlessly clean with bed sheets changed nearly every day! We stumbled across this at the end of a long mornings search...

We stayed for 5 nights in a double room with private bathroom in the newer back wing. Room was nice, new and clean, with comfortable mattress and nice hot shower (water was lukewarm the first night but staff promptly replaced the gas when we complained). We noticed some rooms had TV. WIFI was accessible from the room although it gets...

We stayed here for 5 nights... It's a very nice hostel. Small and quiet and centered around a pretty courtyard. Lonely planet said some people reported a noise issue but we never had this problem Abd anyway that's what earplugs are for. Super nice staff, pretty basic breakfast but for a budget spot in cusco the price is great. About...

Upon arrival in Cusco, we were met at the airport by staff. The hostel is near the center of town (about 5 blocks away). Quiet hostel. We were 2 couples and had 2 rooms. The beds were comfortable with 4 blankets! Desk clerk was very helpful in planning our time around Cusco. She arranged a taxi to take us around...

We stayed here for 5 days, and was quite happy about our stay. The hostal is very charming and located in an old colonial building, with two smal courtyards.

We had booked to stay here for a few nights but left after one as we found it to be very over-priced with better options for less elsewhere. The room was distinctly average; smallish in size, bathroom okay but water pressure too high. The towels were tatty and no soap was provided. The guest kitchen was extremely off-putting; a tiny,...

We checked out quite a few place on the internet and visited a couple other hostals in Cusco, and chose this one. Proved to be a great choice. We first stayed here for 2 nights and after Machu Picchu returned for 2 nights more. Qorichaska has a good location, and the rooms are nice and kept spotlessly clean. The staff...

This hostel is absolutely beautiful. It is hidden away on a plain street a couple blocks away from the plazas, with beautiful gardens and balconies. The room and bathroom were very clean. There was free internet at the hostel, and with the police station only a block away, we felt safe walking home at night. The staff was very friendly...
