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!

Today we got up and had breakfast with Julie and Stan before we all decided to walk to some travel agencies to look into the Inca Jungle Trek. We like what we had heard about Conde Travel center and they gave us the best price also so we went with them! $210 USD for 3 nights and 4 days including all transport, food, bikes, equipment, 2 guides, accommodation and entrance into Machu Picchu plus Machu Picchu mountain ($5USD ...
... good fun, and went along smoothly. I saw the results as well, and they were also very impressive given the amount of time we had to work.

... on original Incan walls, this area is made up of about 16 blocks with narrow alleys between them. A couple of the houses even have the traditional roofs.
The next 2 days I explored the area on foot on my own, taking long walks into the countryside where there are lots of ruins. It was great to just wander through small villages, seeing the local way of life ...
