“Comfy and spacious hostel!”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on December 15, 2017

I stayed here for 3 nights because of a friend I met working at a restaurant in Pisac, who also works at this hostel (same owner). It's the quiet travel season and I was the only guest here! Not...


Directions from Cusco: Ask the taxi driver to drop you on Puputi street (Calle Puputi) near Avenida de La Cultura. Tell him you are going to Calca (Coya is nearby). There are several operators on Puputi who go to Calca regularly. On the trip to Coya you´ll pass through beautiful mountain valleys and small villages on a 30 to 40 minute ride to Pisac. About 10 minutes after passing through Pisac, you´ll enter Coya. Tell the driver "Baja Coya", and he´ll drop you where you´ll see colorful statues on 3 corners of the intersection. Walk 1 block in the same direction you were traveling and turn right. Walk 1 block and turn left. The hostel entrance is the first door on your right. Ring the bell.


24 hour cancelation policy. We ask that you cancel no later than 24 hours prior to your scheduled arrival. No-shows may be liable for the first night´s fee.

Smoking allowed on balconies and outside the building. A key deposit of 2 dollars is required to reduce key loss.
