I stayed at the hostel for about a month and it really was like a home away from home. Mercedes, the owner of the hostel is so lovely, kind and helpful. Anything you want to do, Mercedes will arrange it for you in no time! She knows all about the excursions and which to book and how. When Mercedes is...

Mercedes, the owner of Hostal Girasoles, is wonderful. She tried very hard to make us feel at home and went out of her way to help us plan our time in Cusco and in the Sacred Valley. Our three children (ages 12, 10, 8) had a triple room and my husband and I shared a room one over. When I...

Sum it up - the staff was excellent. Mercedes met me at the airport and got me to the hotel. It is centrally located near Plaza de Armas and shopping. Great and eclectic restaurants conveniently located near the hostal. Mercedes can arrange anything for you, from treks, tours, taxis, tickets, laundry, etc. And she does not charge for doing this....

The best part of this hotel is the owner named Mercedes and her family who are super helpful. The rooms are sufficiently large, clean and there is hot water. The location is quiet so good sleep at night. The cost is $35 dollars, which means there are cheaper places but I didn't stay at any so I don't know. If...

Mercedes was very hospitable on our first night when we were chilled from the rain. She gave us a heater and extra blankets! The place was very clean and the breakfast delightful. The location was only a short walk from the plaza de armas and the San Blas plaza market. I would stay there again. 3 days is not enough...

We loved Mercedes and our stay at Hostel Girasoles. Our plane was late and Mercedes waited almost an hour to pick us up and gave us big hugs. On the way to the Girasoles, she took us to a travel agent to buy our bus tickets from Agua Calientes to Machu Picchu, because we were worried that they may sell...
