Be prepared that if considering to stay in San Blas district of Cusco you have to climb many steep steps before arriving at your hostel.
In the case of the Amaru hostal 1 you are lucky as it is located very close to the main plaza de Armas area with only a few steps to take in contrary to the other (good) hostels in this area. All in all I can say it has the ideal location as it combines great views over the city with only a few meters to the city center. And furthermore it is pretty quiet at night.
The Amaru hostel was very professional with everything.
Airport pick up worked fine, even people who didn`t contact Amaru hostel for pick-up were on the list. The driver waited as long as possible for all the people to show up.
The hostel itself looked very good and clean. Staff was very nice and good English speaking. As recommended by other Tripadvisor reviews before we had asked for a room on the upper floor. It was worth while as we had a nice view from there and seemed to get more light as the ones on the ground floor. The room itself was pretty decorated and had TV, a hot shower and a nice bed. Wifi worked perfectly. Koka Tea was available for free at anytime.
Each day we had sensational breakfast with bread, butter, fruit salad eggs and a fresh made orange juice.
Staff was helpful with keeping our money in a safe and storing our luggage on the last day.
My girl-friend and me really felt like home here and we can recommend this hostel to everyone travelling to Cusco.
