8/10 Very good

24 hour stay at Machu Picchu
Hey you get what you pay for. We knew that we would only need this room for approximately 5 hours, as we arrived late on the train and would be getting back up at 3:45am to catch the bus to Machu Picchu. They were very accommodating and let us leave a majority of our belongings with them. The beds were actually quite comfortable as was the room. We did get the since though that even though Agus Callientes is a small town, (Uphills both ways) this Hostal maybe wasnt in the most safest place, but we were fine.

Did not have rooms we reserved
Our family of four was traveling together and we had made reservations to two rooms at the hotel. When we arrived we were informed that there was only one room available. After some discussion with the staff who were unwilling to honor our reservation they said two of our family members could stay two blocks away at their other property. This created some complications because we had packed and made travel arrangements to be in the same properties throughout our trip.

2 night twin room
Twin room is ok, quite spacious, although i dont find it very important since i wasnt in the room except for sleeping and shower. Breakfast basic, served in 4:30. After second night i wanted breakfast in 6:00, got it in 7:15 since everybody was sleeping. After they serve breakfast in 4:30, they assume the hotel is empty. Neighbourhood could be better. But in aguas calientes, i assume everywhere is similar. You come here just for MP and they know it

Just ok. 5% charge if paying w/ CC.
There was no one at the reception area at our arrival. I just walked across the dark dining area towards the kitchen and yelled for help. I'm fluent in Spanish so I guess that helps. I think this place is run by a mother and her daughters. Machu Picchu pueblo business owners pretty much figure tourists are not coming back anytime soon; so, they're not worried about repeat business. Hotel pros: beds were comfy, water was hot with plenty of water pressure, hair blow dryer was available and cable tv. We never felt like we were in danger. Hotel cons: the owner had a child that just cried and cried. My BF couldn't take it anymore and went downstairs to complain about it. Also, you can hear the train but to be fair I think you can hear the train in all parts of the town Wifi was ok too. Breakfast is offered but not sure what. We only had coffee, juice, toast and yogurt. We needed to catch the bus to Machu Picchu site ($24 r/t per person). Also, it's not far from the train station. Once you exit the train station keep to the first right alley of the market then take another right along the rail line. Yes, apparently all who exit the train station need to go thru all the vendors.

Very convenient to train and bus stations as well
Very friendly, accommodating staff. This is a hostel, so an unpretentious experience was anticipated. We found the accommodations to be quite spacious, clean and with a recently renovated bathroom.

Good location, wifi, hot water, & breakfast
Good wifi. Good hot water in shower. Good breakfast. Allowed me to store my luggage for the day. Only a short walk from the train station, market, and many restaurants. Very pleased overall.

Confortable Hostel in Aguas Calientes
We stayed here for 3 days / 2 nights during our visit to Machu Picchu. Due to changes in our travel plans we changed the room from tripple to double. The location is very convenient, close to both the train station, local market and the bus station to Machu Picchu. The hostel host was a very friendly lady, supplied us with excellent breakfasts, and made our stay very comfortable. We recommend this hostel for those who wish to stay in Aguas Calientes on a reasonable budget.

Avoid at all costs
While the pictures and description looked fine when we booked here, the place turned out to be very run down and offered poor service. We were so excited about doing Machu Picchu but our stay here really put a damper on the trip. Where to begin - massive construction noise at 5:30 am, dark non-lit corridors and stairwells, damp rooms, Tang orange juice and day old bread for breakfast and non-existent or sleeping staff that seemed to be irritated whenever we were around. We had booked our room with the understanding that we could pay by Visa but when it came time to pay, they refused to take our Visa card and demanded cash so we had to empty our pockets and pay in a mish-mash of currencies - imagine if we had not had the cash on us! At $ 90 US a night, this is beyond a rip-off and should not be represented on We use often and are always pleased however not this time.

2/10 Poor

Staff very rude and unwelcoming!
I'm staying at this hotel as most people and we do to go out to Machu Picchu. The staff are very unwelcoming. I stay tonight's and that the room was untouched after I've been out today. The towel wasn't changed and the bed wasn't made up! Probably the worst hotel I've stayed in during my visit to Peru.
