My friend and I walked into Ecopackers hostel with no expectations. We were greeted by Dianesa and Carmen, who brightened up our day with smiles and jokes after a long day of travel. They were friendly, efficient, and professional. We got a double room with...More

Great service. We felt very welcome because of Carmen & Dianesa. They helped us check in very quickly with no problem, answered all of our questions, & we really enjoyed their personalities. Carlitos was really friendly too and answered a few of our questions. Ecopackers...More
Ecopackers costumer service was phenomenal and very eager to help us at a drop of dime. Carmen was the best as well as Rosabel. The rooms and bathrooms were all clean. The only bad remark is the noise level. We were right above the bar...More
In the party town Cusco, Ecobackpackers doesn't want to be left behind. The party doesn't stop here until late in the night, which is a shame, as the bar lies between most of the rooms. Bring earplugs. Plus: nice building, clean rooms. Minus: they play...More

my advice?...don't go to a kiosk in the airport unless you are JUST arriving in Peru and dont know the difference between registered cabs and not. They are more expensive and if your backpacking...ever dollar counts! Take a street cab. I only payed 6 soles and refused to pay more. If you're getting in a cab, look for photo ID (should be on dashboard or right hand corner of window) and if there's a dispatch system that is the best. ALWAYS negotiate a set price before you even set foot in the cab. The one that I used to take a lot I think was called tourismo or touristico???...something along those lines?! you could send an email to the hostel or google safe taxi companies.
ALSO if you have time, and if you like beautiful incredible things, I highly suggest taking a collectivo (6 soles) to a town about an hour and a half away called Ollantaytambo. I lived there for a month and it is COVERED in beautiful Inka ruins. if you want to go for a ten minute walk, or if you want to do a 5 day trek up mount Veronika it is safe, STUNNING and so tranquil. As a single female traveler I lived in my tent for 3 days and it was one of the best experiences that I had.
All the best on your travels!
