Mama Simona Hostel - Cusco, Cusco
Best Hostel in Cusco
Mama Simona was a great choice for my stay in Cusco. The staff was friendly and helpful, the hostel was clean and inviting, and the beds were comfortable and warm. Quiet hours at 10pm were enforced which was nice, since nothing is worse than staying somewhere where you can't get any rest. Small breakfast was included with my stay, and endless supplies of coca tea, which helped with the altitude. The rooms have lockers for storing important docs, bring your own lock, and the hostal sells water on site. It's also close to the town center and in a safe neighborhood.

Comfortable beds, friendly staff
Very comfortable beds, nice service, very clean. Quick walk to main area of Cusco, although it is up a hill so the walk back can be a little tough if still adjusting to altitude. Free breakfast includes croissant/roll of some sort and coffee. Bottled water and other drinks for sale which is nice and convenient.

This is super location in Cusco. Close to main attractions, shopping and just a stroll through the old streets. The stuff is very friendly and speak English. Continuous supply of cocoa leave tea refreshes you after long strolls.
