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!

... names this way. There are hundreds of books, though: textbooks and so many free-reading books. If a child wanted a book they would literally point and then I had to go down the line while they shouted "derecha!" "izquierda" and other indiscernible exclamations because they didn't know the titles of the books and I wasn't used to where certain books were. Once everyone had the materials they needed I started floating around and asking students ...
... ride took us half way to Cusco where we were then picked up by a van which would take us back to Cusco. It was an incredibly awesome trip. I came to realise though that it was only great when we were doing something. The food quality and the portions were **** and the places we stayed were ****. Even our guide was ****. But everything else was awesome, the people I met, the events I took part in. All memories I will remember ...
... slightly guilty not to be heading out to visit inca ruins, but we figured there would be plenty to see on the inca trail, so we wanted to do something a bit different with our day. It was another early start since we had to drive a few hours out of town to the rafting site. The hostel kindly offered to make us scrambled eggs half an hour earlier than breakfast was served, which was handy considering we'd be needing our energy for rafting. We were picked up by Lucho, who was ...
... Basically a big piece of pipe, with another fit inside that they suck up the water and the shoot it out. And it holds quite a bit of water!! And they were sucking up muddy puddle water and whatever they could find. Yuck! But it's the start of carnival so it's "party law" there are water balloon fights, and colored powder and shaving cream and silly string flying everywhere. Apparently there's a huge party in the one square on Sunday. We were told to ...
... up with them again and after breakfast we all got ready and went to somewhere we promised we'd go whilst we were hiking up the Salkantay... McDonalds. We were spoilt for choice on the menu but we all consumed our meals in quick times. Dave can now confirm that Big Mac's in Peru are as good as in England and I'm sure Jessie would agree her chicken wrap was too. After McDonalds ...
