Great stay at El Tuco!
Had a great experience at El Tuco. Coco and his family are very friendly and extremely helpful in making your stay a pleasant one. Anything from accommodating breakfast at odd times (breakfast was great!) to tips about the area and luggage storage. The hotel is located just 10-15 min walk to the main attractions. Comfy beds, good WiFi. Can highly recommend!

Perfect stay
The owner, Coco, is the best host that you could hope for. He is Avery helpful and always there to fulfill your needs. The hotel is well located and clean. The room are quite big and the hot water is really enjoyable! We were able to park our car in a safe spot behind the hotel, do not hesitate to ask Coco about it. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cusco!

Hostel that stands out among the rest
Overall great experience! I wasn't expecting too much considering it is a hostel, but this was the best hostel experience. My friend and I shared a two bed private room and it was comfortable and clean. Coco and his family were great hosts, making us feel safe and welcome. It didn't bother me, but it is a bit loud due to it being close to major streets. So, if you are inclined to need silence, it may not be the best for you.

Authentic B&B
Location far enough away from the plazas to be quiet at night, yet only a ten minute walk away. Coco the proprietor will prepare for you a top-notch pancake. I want to return, if only to eat another.
