This is a nice hostel with friendly and helpful people (especially Ines) running it. Not everybody speaks English well enough, a common probelm in this part of the world. Like it or not, English is now THE world language.
The Piccola Locanda differs from other places; it's a familiar and cultural place where you can feel like home. Ideal for families, couples and friends that are looking for tranquillity.
The Locanda is an ethical hostal that links tourism with solidarity. When staying at the Piccola, you contribute to the automatic financing of two projects dedicated to children. You are welcome to visit them!
The Locanda consists as well of an Iinternet cafè and a travel agency.

We are in the historical part of San Cristobal, in the Resbalosa Street, only two blocks from the Plaza de Armas.

Here are some comments from our customers:
Absolutely brilliant place to stay, I highly recommend it to any traveller on any type of trip. Great, friendly staff, perfect location with amazing views of classic Cusco. Beautiful terrace style building with gorgeous interior furnishings. I can't say enough nice things about this place. Great breakfast!!! I have visited 6 continents and over 30 countries, and this is one of the nicest places I've stayed in. Extremely cheap too!!! Thank you Piccola Locanda for a great time.
What a great place to stay at! Felt right at home being able to put the kettle on whenever needed and write postcards at the kitchen table. The walk up the steps to get there was also good training for the Inca trail! We loved it: Plenty of charm and very nice staff.
To every upcoming guest I just can recommend the Hostel. It is a very unique place to stay. Almost every room includes a wonderful view over the city of Cusco. All rooms are in an excellent condition and are very clean. I mean really clean. Like you would expect in European two or three stars Hotels. It is also a very good place to meet other people. It offers a lot of common areas. So to everybody who doesn't know what to do, book this one.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This is a nice hostel with friendly and helpful people (especially Ines) running it. Not everybody speaks English well enough, a common probelm in this part of the world. Like it or not, English is now THE world language. Some rooms in the hostel are near entertainment and eating areas and are noisy. The hostel's location is near the main square but it is a steep climb. The interior decorating is very cosy and well done. Recommended.
