The guys who run this place a re so nice and helpful. They will do whatever they can for you. However..... Cold showers!!!!!! Although they can be common in Peru. Also, they seem to be undergoing renovations. So be prepared to wake up at 9am to saws and hammers

I stayed at Sunset House for a week back in May. The hostel is very charming with colorful rooms, a nice little patio, well-equipped kitchen, solid wifi and a very friendly and helpful owner. They definitely have the best hot shower in Cusco!! That shower alone was worth my entire stay :) This is a great deal for travelers wanting...

This hostel didn't add to our experience in Cusco at all, but it also didn't hurt it. It was clean, simple, and quiet. It didn't have a lot of character -- just a place to sleep. Sunset house would be a good option for someone who doesn't have any down time and only needs a clean, safe place to sleep....

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, I booked Sunset House. I really loved the location in the San Blas neighborhood. It's beautiful and quiet and peaceful and only about 10 minutes to the center, although I enjoyed spending time in San Blas. I also liked how quiet the hostel was and how kind Manuel, the owner, is. Downsides: the WiFi signal...

Definately recommend staying here. Very close to San Blas, quite area, beautiful deck. Good internet. Great kitchen, fire place & movie area. Most of all the owner and manager has the best customer service we've had yet. Very friendly, accommodating & professional. Shower needs a little work, but Manuel is constantly improving the place. The duckdown quilts are the best...

Stayed in Sunset House based on the already good reviews we read on TA. I must say we are not disappointed. The hostel is quiet, clean and in a nice location in San Blas. The kitchen is small but sufficent for the hostel. The comunal areas - especially the roof terrace - are spacious and nice. We stayed in the...

I stayed in the private room at this hostel and can warmly recommend it. The room was warm, carpeted with a comfortable double bed and cable television. The kitchen and bathroom facilities and the common living room are clean and well maintained. The building and location in the San Blas district are excellent, but what really stands out the most...

Through a friend's recommendation, I stayed at Sunset House in Cuzco. The hostel is located in an ideal location in San Blas just above Cuzco's main square (the Plaza de Armas). I had an excellent time in Cuzco and the Sunset House contributed greatly to the experience. The price is affordable without any shortcuts in the service. Its location is...
