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!

... because I'm getting hungry and half of you have stopped reading by now and tapped the like button to fake me out. I told the poor excuse for a street pharmacist to have a sniff followed by letting me taste it first before buying, eventually coming to the conclusions that he was attempting to sell me a trophy for trying in a country now holding the belt for best Charlie on the planet. I told a local gringo back in the bar my story and to make a short story long he went outside and ...
... back to the teaching area and showed her one of the pillowcase dresses. We had her try it on and at first she said it was "muy feo" which means very ugly. But then I gave her an Oreo and she kept it on and took pictures. Then she went and told 2 friends, then they told 2 more friends. And within a few minutes all 8 dresses were being worn and all of our cookies and candy vanished. They were so grateful and smiley. All of my hard work ...
A lot has happened in the last 10ish days... or you could argue very little has happened in the last 10 days. But I feel like I just survived the apocalypse, so I would call that a massive success...
Last week Thursday I signed up for a salsa dancing class. The minute I walked into the studio with my 3 friends, we were all really intimidated. Even though I danced quite a bit through my childhood, I never partner danced. There were enough male ...
... 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 ...
... us by Sheeno's brothers friend, Dan Nugent so we thought we’d have a look. The bus journey for me though was absolutely horrendous. An hour into the journey I began shivering uncontrollably, shaking and then I started getting sick violently. Trying to get sick in the toilet of a moving bus is not something I want to ever experience again. It was a horrible 20 hours.
