We stayed in the dorm with 4 friends. Nice clean beds. Although dorm for 6 people can be small with 6 backpacks. Nice staff, good breakfast but be on time for the breakfast they don't really refill it. So if you want to enjoy it get up early. Only one toilet and one shower, toilet is near the sitting area...

We booked Marlon's on recommendation of friends. We arrived at 2am and were glad to be let in the building but arrived to no record of our booking, even though I had confirmation from Hostel Bookers. The notebook style booking record clearly doesn't work as the guy had no idea if there was room or not so ended up turning...

Overall impression ok. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't give it a better review. First off, if you went to the website and saw the stay longer for 2 days you get a reduced rate deal....they don't honor it. Why I don't know since it's on the website. They said they couldn't do it since the owner wasn't there....

Marlon's House is a very good hostel for a very reasonable price. It's located in a quiet street about 5-10 minutes walk from the main square. The staff is very nice and helpful, even if you don't book the tours with them or when you arrive in the middle of the night. We had a big room with a clean...

This was my first experience staying at a hostel. Overall, it was pretty decent considering the cheap price. We stayed there for two nights during the last week of May and returned for one night in June. Airport Pick Up - Marlon's House provides airport transportation for $10. The drivers were on time. Location - Very close to the main...

We stayed for around 7 nights in Marlon´s House, Cusco at the start of May. It was a really good base to explore Cusco. It was a 5 minute walk into town and the staff were really helpful at showing us on the map where everything was! We had a private en-suite room, which was clean, spacious and always had...

We spent 3 nights here and felt that the room, staff, breakfast and travel agency were adequate to good. The location was great and we felt safe. We did run into an issue with some boots left on the tour bus. Although we called and they arranged to pick them up, in the end they said the bus company threw...

Stayed here for 3 nights in total in two stays, had a room with 3 beds for a couple, the main double had seen better days as it was pretty uncomfortable and left you rolling to the middle. The place is small with not enough room at breakfast for everyone. Staff were helpful and always provided hot drinks. Good location...

Marlon's house is a nice, inexpensive little hostel that has your basic needs met. Three of us stayed in a room that had three twin beds and a private bathroom. No bugs in the room. It was quiet and a pleasant stay. Marlon helped us out with arranging our Machu Picchu tour. It's only minutes to walk to the main...

We really enjoyed our stay here! The staff were very helpful with information about the area, extending our stay, etc. The free breakfast is pretty great, I loved that the food is set out and you help yourself. If they run out of anything and you inform them of it, they run out to go grab more right away. The...
