I came with a friend to Ecopackers, after hearing good comments about it. Sadly, our experience wasn't as good as we thought. Yes, the rooms are very nice and clean, as the rest of the place. But I can't say the same about the service...More
This wonderful colonial style hostel has a perfect location, friendly helpful staff - every one (Carmen & Gregorio went out of their way to help us), great communal areas, excellent restaurant & pub - & a wonderful vibe! Beds solid & warm, & bathrooms clean...More
I am not very positive about this hostel. To start with the name "ecopackers" is a bit misleading.
Besides a handful of signs saying "save the water", this hostel isn't especially ecological at all. On Friday night there was a big party sponsored by Corona...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!
