Stayed here with a group tour and the staff was very accommodating as we had leave our big bags and allowed us to do so in the room. When we returned only a few of us had to change rooms. Beds are very comfy and warm, bathrooms clean and lots of hot water.

... to take us from the bus stop to our hostels. The Peru Hop employee spoke to the taxi driver to let him know where to take us. The taxi didn't look like it would make the journey, but soon we were on our street. The taxi driver just stopped and said here we are. Sorry we aren't staying in a four star hotel.
