Property is very conveniently located for visiting Machu Picchu. Nice view of the river from the room. Lots of insects were able to get in the room in the evening despite the windows being closed. Staff was very friendly & helpful. I received a bag of snacks to take since I left early for MP

Highly recommended hostel.
It was a perfect stay just as advertised. The hostel is right on the platform, so get off the train straight into the hostel. It's a hostel, so it has all the basic needs and is very clean. The service is excellent, with the owner very accommodating. Their breakfast was great. They let us eat longer since we had two young kids with us, and they slept in late. They held luggage for us for after checkout too. Great stay overall.

Best Hostel in Aguas Calientes
I stayed in this hostel one night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room had the best view of The Urumba river. The only call out is that the pillows were not the most comfortable, but it’s a hostel so don’t expect a 5 star hotel. It was very clean and walking distance to Peru rial, the bus to Machu Picchu & numerous restaurants. I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who is saying short term to visit Machu Picchu
