Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our "go-to" hotel/hostal when traveling to Cusco, this was our 4th trip in 5years and once again the folks at Qosqo met our expectations with a pleasant 5 day stay. They picked us up at the airport (arrange ahead of time), were prepared when we checked-in, the rooms clean, the staff friendly. Now-keep in mind, this is not the JW Marriott; but the location cannot be beat and the price/value is well worth it. Other reviewers noted a water issue, but that only happens if and when everyone uses the shower at the same moment, just wait 30mins and everything will be fine. Upon request, they can arrange airport transport, last min. tours, etc. The "day" folks have a better command of english than at night. Just off the Plaza de Armas at the end of Avenue del Sol; next to the Italian Resturant (another good choice). Have to look for it. -- You will not be disappointed

An amazing location, close to everything. Very simple but has everything you need. My room was comfortable though my friends did complain about the noise on rooms near the street end. You have to go upstairs to a second floor to reach the hostel which may seem like nothing but with the altitude sickness thing you feel the loss of breath every time. The staff was polite and helped with restaurants reservations. I would prefer a better breakfast therefore the 3 star.

We stayed here for 3 separate nights as part of a tour package. Each time we had shower troubles - no cold water or the water totally shutting off in the middle of a shower. Mildew is a given but one time the room smelled so much of mildew that we asked for a room change and were switched to the only other available room. Unfortunately this room was next to room where the water was controlled for the building so all night long the pipes banged (think slamming doors). The staff are very nice but the facilities are poor.

This hotel is in a great location. It is only a block or two from the plaza with lots of shopping, clubs, and restaurants around. It is right next to a church so you can hear singing and we even saw a wedding! There is breakfast every morning with a good variety. We did not have any problems with hot water or anything else. Very good option.

With the 100's of 3 star hotels in Cuzco, we were bamboozed with where to stay.
Our friend, who runs a small local tour company, chose the Qosqo for us.

Why? Perfect location!

We loved our room, looking onto the main street. It had a tiny cute balcony (you could look down to the two squares), and we didn't mind a little bit of street noise.
The room was very tidy and clean. Hot water and comfortable bed. It was Cumfy.

The staff were always kind and friendly and extremely helpful, 'beyond the call of duty.' Even recommended a few reasonably priced restaurants.

For the few days you must stay in Cuzco, Qosqo is good value, and right where you want it.

This hostel is located on the second floor mere steps from the main square in Cuzco. The reception folks were nice and offered to bring some coca tea to our room upon arrival. Our room (206) was next to the reception area and overlooked a church courtyard next door. I thought the $60 price was fair for the double room including breakfast.

Pluses: the shower had hot water and free wifi was available. Minuses: Room could have been darker (needed better curtains) and beds were a little hard. Overall, I would recommend this place based on location and value for Cuzco.

Booked online through a Peruvian internet tour operator Turinetperu. Small modest hotel just half a block from Plaza de Armas. Inside rooms quiet but no windows. Rooms facing street a bit noisy, but worth it if you like the view. Our quiet room faced La Meced church. Includes basic CB. Very clean and comfortable. Attentive staff. Rooms with bath. Internet. Great value.

I really hope you never have to deal with this Hostel. Having agreed to store our bags for a couple of hours, taken our cash and handed us the receipts/tags, they then tried to more than double the price saying they had different policies. We spoke to the manager Mariana who was very rude and showed no willingness to compromise or apologize for the 'misunderstanding', and having taken up 20 minutes of our time they then said they would no longer store our bags. Clearly they do not stick to their word and are not to be trusted.

The hotel interior was also very drab and needs a significant face lift.

We were pleased with this hostal. They could accommodate our family of 4 in one room which can be difficult to find. We stayed in one room with 4 twim beds the first night. It looked to a church patio. After our return from Macchu Pichu we stayed in a different room with 4 twin beds. This 2nd one had a little patio that looked over the street. You could see the Plaza de Armas a block away. Being on the street it was a bit noisier but not too bad. The beds are hard like most places we stayed in Peru. The breakfast was nice plus they allowed me to store some food in the refrigerator. They welcomed us with coca tea. Very friendly. There was only one negative - a horrible sewage smell in the bathroom. It comes up through the shower drain. My husband was able to rid the first room as the drain was in the shower and by running the shower water to fill and push it through the trap. It was much better. In the 2nd room the drain was in the middle of the floor and so we could not run it. We don't think it was the hostal's fault but the building or even Cusco's old sewage system. I hope that the city or building have fixed it as it was awful. (Closing the bathroom door kept the smell away for the most part.) We would recommend booking here, but ask if this has been corrected.
