We spent 5 nights in Hostal Quipu which is located a short walk (10 minutes) from Plaza de Armas. It is located on a quiet one-way street. Next to the hostel is a convenience store which is very convenient. The Hostel building is enchanting with a big open central courtyard. Most of the rooms are located on the second floor resembling a gallery. The hostel's manager Lida has an excellent team comprising Lucy, Maria and Pedro ensuring the guests have a pleasant stay. Although they speak very little English, they all went the extra mile to try and help us with our queries. Breakfast was basic and included bread, butter, jam, fruit juice and eggs. Wi-Fi was excellent. Hot water in the showers was great! Toilets were clean, so was the room. Bed linen and towels were clean. Although there are no on-site laundry facilities, they can get it sorted out for you for S/4 per kg. There are cheaper options available near the hostel but we couldn't be bothered as were busy with day tours. They organised a taxi for us for a drop off at 6 am which was awesome! The beds were always made when we returned in the evening! They also provide extra blankets in the wardrobe to provide the additional warmth at night should the need arise. Before doing the Inca trek we left our bags in the storage which were well looked after! This hostel offers a wonderful option for budget travellers and families and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hostel for both short or long stays. It is ideal for people wanting to save up on accommodation and spend on experiences. Why would anyone want to spend more and live in hotels in Cusco when you have this excellent hostel?
