x The average starting price for a place to stay in Cusco is £34 per night.
Natalie and Tom I had mixed feelings about this hostel. I was worried about finding a hostel in Cusco during high season so I booked online to avoid not finding a place. I regretted this. I had to book a 3 bedroom for 2 people and although the place was not full they would not offer any form of discount on the room considering we were just a couple. We had a private bathroom but it was not very clean. For the price it was not worth it. After walking around Cusco we found much nicer places for much cheaper and only stayed one night at Hostal El Triunfo. The one thing it has is an amazing location very close to the main square, the train booking office and arguably the best restaraunt in Cusco. The service was very good however the check out is at 9:00 am and it says to ask for 12pm check out if you want it but they told us no 10 was the latest possible unless we wanted to pay an extra half day.

Some.Matt Friendly staff that answered questions about directions, travelling information, etc... a lively crowd of other hostellers, free wifi, a decently priced bar with drink deals and live entertainment, pressurized HOT showers... and a great location close to the Plaza. Recommended!

bischi It is in a quiet area, about 10-15min walk to the centre (Plaza de Armas). The rooms and facilities were clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and provided information about the area, taxis, buses, etc. Rooms were a bit cold and the duvets weren't very warm (needed my own sleeping bag additionally).
tomasvalas Very clean facilities, in city center, and plenty of hangout areas including a pretty Spanish style courtyard. Not the place to stay if you want peace and quiet as there are plenty of partygoers, but comfy beds nonetheless. Bring a lock for the locker or find one in town.
Jonniedetroit This hostel has a superb location, great common space, and plenty of facilities for dining, laundry and exploring in the immediate area. It is located in San Blas, the best and safest part of town. The operators have a great personality and the pisco sours are the best I have had in the country.
