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!

... sacred quality of the crucified Christ and his very holy mother. Of particular interest, both Spanish and Quechuan were used in the speeches, almost but not quite alternating while we watched.
I suppose it’s a wee bit obvious, but this was not the way I have ever spent pre- and post-Seder time before. Usually I am preparing Seder plates beforehand, and washing dishes and putting away cutlery and crockery afterwards. This was certainly much weirder for ...
... that out for drinks with some other volunteers. It ended up being kind of a late night, and we got back to the room around midnight. After a great night sleep in a super comfy bed, we had the morning to kill before our flight out, and a long layover in Lima. We wandered around, got some food, and then it was time to go to the airport. We're both so sad to be leaving. It's been nice being somewhere long enough to get kind of settled and have some familiarity and also to know ...
... 5 guys and a girl from Switzerland. Our tour guide was hilarious and made the tour amazing. He kept telling us how the king of the Inkans had multiple wife's and over 400 kids. Then said how he wanted to be king and have multiple wives. One of the guys from Switzerland stood on one of the walls of the ruins (they're pretty low) to take a photo. Ro yelled "oh my god! get down! The inkans didn't sacrifice humans often, but I will kill you!" And then all throughout the rest of the tour ...
... and on the centre where there was grass, benches and a giant nativity scene. However, the road winding around the square which during the day becomes a giant uncontrolled chaotic roundabout was completely empty.
The intensity of the crowd continued to increase as midnight approached until right on midnight (or close enough to midnight when there was no official countdown) the square exploded with an intense energy. It was a mass of uncontrolled ...
... the modern mind, has not been simply an error, an unfortunate human aberration, a mere manifestation of human blindness, but has rather reflected a much deeper archetypal process impelled by forces beyond the merely human. For in this view, the powerful contraction of vision experienced by the modern mind has itself been an authentic expression of nature's unfolding, a process enacted through the growingly autonomous human intellect, and now reaching a ...
