tomasvalas Very good value. The staff was very helpful, the hostel was impeccably clean, and there was a full kitchen. Definitely one of the best hostels I've been to.

jonathanda Great service, nice rooms. We booked a great 3-day tour of the Colca Canyon. Close to the plaza de armas and the touristic centre. Recommended!

paulinelon This hostal is clean, and real close to the main scuare. A few days ago i went to do a hiking track, and the owner even lent me her backpack becouse i forgot mine! They are so friendly, helping ou with everything, and any question you might have. There is a nice vibe going on in this hostal, here come frendly people, and i´m verry happy to say its not one of those party hostals. I would recommend this hostal to everyone!

joriedi2 La Posada del Kuraka is a great deal. Period. The rooms are small and basic, the water was mostly luke warm, but the location is good (it really isn't a long walk at all to the main plaza, just five minutes or so). What we liked most about our stay was Jose, the owner. Jose was very friendly and helpful (though his English is limited, but our Spanish was limited as well and we made it work!), always available, and he let us keep our bags locked up and use the facilities even after we'd checked out and while waiting to take a 9 pm night bus back to Cuzco. The terrace up top has a beautiful view of the entire city and surrounding mountains and volcanoes, and that was a huge plus to staying there. If you want inexpensive and basic, then La Posada is a great place to stay.
