There are cheaper options, but I was traveling with my 12 year old son. El Solar was an excellent place for us to stay. It was safe and secure with no games or scams. Everything was clean. The hot water works. wifi works. The tv was a bonus to my son. The location is excellent. Walking distance to the train...

I would highly recommend this hostel. My brother (15) and I stayed 4 nights in 2 different rooms. We stayed 2 nights either side of our Inca Trail trek. The hostel is clean, very comfortable beds, quiet and has good wifi. The wifi didn't work inside one of our rooms though. This didn't worry us as the court yard was...

I love this place. We came to cusco for a few days and ended up spending three weeks here. Lovely little central garden that all rooms surround you can sun yourself in, well furnished (if a little small) and regularly cleaned rooms with decent showers. The hotel staff went out of their way to help and always had a smile...

We stayed here after finding it through Booking.com. We returned after our jungle trip as we were impressed. The rooms are around a central garden. They are small, twin rooms bigger than doubles, but are quite pleasant as they retain the old buildings style. Hot water was very good. Wifi doesnt quite make it to all the rooms but there...

This place was pretty basic but definitely deserves better than a one star review. We went here at the recommendation of our tour guide when the place we reserved (the Loki Hostal) didn't look very good. This place was well located at Plaza San Francisco, 3 blocks from Plaza de Armas, close to the Machu Picchu train station, and not...

My hotel was booked solid one night and I hadn't reserved my room, so I moved around the corner to this hotel. It was mentioned in Lonely Planet so I thought it would be okay. The room was fine for the price ($15) but there was no water at all from the sink or shower when I woke up early...
