I want to give this place a better review - Maybe it was just our room... but the walls were so thin I felt like every person coming in the front door was coming into my room!
The people were very friendly, especially Mercedes! They greeted us with a hot cup of coca tea which was great....along with way too much information on tours which was not so great. After traveling, we really didn't want to hear about tours right away.
The room was definitely clean, but very basic and not comfortable. We only stayed 1 night.
The thing that really bugged me was that we went out for some breakfast before checkout time, and when we returned, all of our stuff had been moved to a closet.
I do agree with a previous poster that the alley was really gross. I know, there is really nothing anyone can do about that, but it was exceptionally gross compared to other streets.
I did really love meeting Mercedes and I do understand why people here have given her such great reviews.
I think this place would be appropriate for people looking for a budget hotel/b&b option in cusco.. we just needed slightly more peace&quiet/comfort!

... one destination for souvenirs, especially llama themed items. Tomorrow we will be heading out to Chari, where we will be renovating a women's home. We had a meeting today to discuss what we have to buy and what we will be doing in further detail. We are all really looking forward to the project phase! Lots of love, Team 2 ...
... Puno. Then the Spanish arrived and that didn't work out so well for them either so they escaped out again and this time nailed the building of artificial islands. The islands are made from totoro reeds which grow naturally in the shallow parts of the lake. During rainy season the root beds of these reeds rise and float. The Uros people cut these beds into large blocks and tie them together. They then pile the reeds on top of the blocks, to about 5 metres deep, tie a rope to ...
... some they just were not able to. They had llamas, alpacas, macaras, Pumas, condors, monkeys and a few other animals. We were able to pet one of the llamas. There was a 5 month old puma. We sat in the condor enclosure and the condor flew from the top of the enclosure and landed right beside us. We were able to take pictures. Apparently the feathers are worth thousands of dollars so they are killed for their feathers, making them an endangered species. Shamans also kill them ...
... from the valleys below, where the rampant river rages. Words cannot describe it. Whoever you are reading this, promise yourself that you’ll visit it one day if you haven’t already.
The trip back followed the same hike down the train tracks and this time a colectivo to Santa Teresa and then onward towards Santa Maria to catch another one back to Cusco. Sadly, this is where Sam and I would part ways after 5 weeks ...
... Unbelievable design work considering the tools available back then. The rumours are true on so many of the foundations where you can't even slide a knife in between each perfectly placed stone. Probably the all time greatest real life Tetris gurus. We made our way to Plaza de Armas and its easily the best one so far we have come across. A nice water fountain, massive surrounding architecture and plenty of areas to sit back and relax with ...
