Our favorite stay during our Peru and Bolivia trip. The staff, despite their general lack of English, were superb! We stayed on three different occasions and always looked forward to our return. Their coca tea is the best and the room and bathroom were clean. Plaza de Armas is a 10 minute stroll away, but at this price point you won't get much closer. Room could get cold at night but plenty blankets at your disposal.

I travelled Peru for a month and stayed here for a week, and can easily say that this was the best hotel. The two ladies running the show were truly professionals and put their best effort to keep quests happy.

On one day the water heater broke down so there was no hot water in the shower. Ladies called serviceguy immediately and offered me another room to take a shower. The heater was repaired on the same day.

They really care for their quests, the quality of the service was great.

The location of the hotel is good. It is not spot on the center, but a 10 mins walk from Plaza de Armas. That means that there is no street noise. A supermarket and good restaurants are located just few blocks away.

Quipu's prices are really good so I recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a basic place to stay. Outstanding Service!

A really quite place, not fit for those who are looking to party all night, but great for those who want a quite homey place to return to. The staff was great and cared for all our needs.
The facilities are way nicer than an other place we've been to at the same price range

We adored our stay in Quipu!

Location: an easy 10 minute walk from the main square (Plaza de Armas), but on a safe side street so it was nice and quiet at night.

Hostel: the hostel is inside a beautiful colonial building with a central courtyard and the rooms around it. We stayed in two different rooms and they were both very good - clean, comfortable beds with lots of blankets and furniture so you can unpack properly. The showers were excellent; they had very hot water at all hours of the day and the wager pressure was lovely and strong.

Breakfast: probably the nicest we had in Peru. You can have proper coffee (not instant!) any way you like and there were rolls, jam, butter and eggs cooked how you wanted them.

Service: this is where Quipu deserves a sixth star! Lida, the owner, and her team were the kindest, most helpful, flexible people we stayed with in Peru. They go out of their way to make your stay in Cusco enjoyable and easy. During our week's stay at Quipu we were supposed to visit Machu Picchu for a few days in the middle. However, PeruRail called a strike and made our trip to Aguas Calientes exceptionally difficult. Lida was incredibly helpful during this time, helping us via phone and email in absolutely any way she could, even when we staying elsewhere. Her commitment to her guests goes above and beyond the call of duty.

We would highly recommend this hostel if you are looking for a calm, peaceful place to stay in Cusco with exceptional staff!

I feel like you get more than you pay for in this quaint Hostal. The staff was very friendly, and I enjoyed the made fresh breakfast. It was a short walk to the plaza. There was no heater, but the many blankets on the bed kept me warm. The only downside to this place is the street noise and dogs barking. Unfortunately there's nothing the staff can do, since it's just part of the Cusco atmosphere.
