The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet, and affordable accommodation option outside of Cusco's main plaza area, Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta is an amazing choice. Warm and inviting, it offers travelers the chance to unwind and get out of Cusco's bustling center.
Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta is located a bit outside of the central area of Cusco. The hostel is a ten-minute walk (just over a kilometer) from Plaza de Armas and definitely feels like you are in a more "local" zone of Cusco, however it doesn't at all feel unsafe and it is in a nice area of the city. There are plenty of restaurant options in the area offering much cheaper prices than those closer to the center.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel offers private single, double, and triple rooms, which are large, attractive, and comfortable. The dorm rooms at Turistico are very comfortable and cozy, with only four beds in each dorm. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and have plenty of blankets to keep you warm on cool Cusco nights. The beds do not have their own outlets, but there are plenty in each room. There are also no lockers in the dorms, but each guest receives a key and all of the doors lock upon closing. The front door of the hostel locks as well and each guests receives a key to that as well.
The bathrooms are large and very clean and always well stocked with the necessities as well as offering bath mats and hand towels. Each guest is given a towel upon check-in as well. The hostel has hot water twenty-four/seven and good water pressure in the showers.
Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta has plenty of well-decorated spaces where you can sit and enjoy yourself, including a few outdoor sitting areas and a large central outdoor patio. There is also a seating area in front of reception that's home to a few couches and lots of artwork and trinkets from around the world.
There is also a large common area upstairs with a ping-pong table, foosball table, and TV with an impressive collection of more than a hundred Blu-ray films as well. This room is also home to a large and comfy couch.
There is a small, basic kitchen at the hostel and a great free breakfast is included that offers bread, jam, butter, coffee with milk, tea, waffles, and banana. The Wi-Fi is very fast and offers great, reliable connection. The staff are very friendly and keep the hostel spotless. They'll greet you with a smile upon check-in and offer you well wishes upon departure.
If you're looking to relax after an emotional visit to Machu Picchu or a tough trek up to Rainbow Mountain, Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta is a perfect option on the outskirts of Cusco. It is definitely not a party hostel and is usually silent by 10 p.m., but you'll find yourself easily catching up on sleep before heading off to your next destination. For the price, it is by far one of the best in Cusco.
