Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta Reviews

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.

The Location

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.

Common Spaces

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.

Quiet Oasis in Cusco

This hostel has very friendly management that are happy to answer your questions, it's clean, offers fast WiFi, as well as access to a computer, hot water, a laundry service and good breakfast of tea/coffee, juice or smoothie, bread, eggs and jam. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the Plaza de Armas, but that's why it has no traffic noise. There are several relaxation areas, both indoor and out. All the right ingredients.


Good Hostel

The hostel was great, they didn't have the dorm rooms we booked, so they gave us a private room and honored the price we booked at. They were very accommodating, the showers were good, beds were warm and comfy. Very close to the square, the reception people have lots of good information. Breakfast was very good. The only thing is that the temperature in the hostel is the same as outside, so we were bundled up at night in the hostel, but once in the bed it was perfectly warm. Definitely recommend.


Nice place, very friendly staff

We stayed two nights before and one after Machu Pichu, the hostel has a special atmosphere and the stuff was very helpful. We could store some luggage there, too. Dislike -- quite loud and other people used our "private" bathroom opposite our room.

Fantastic, great place to stay in Cusco!

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights before Machu Picchu and 2 nights after! We arrived at 6am and were greeted with a smile. The staff at this hostel are incredible, taking care of our every need and making time for any requests we had. The location is good and only a short walk to the main plaza. The owner is a great guy, he gave us some invaluable information about the local market, saving us lots of money. He also arranged for taxis, luggage storage, and a room for our return from Machu Picchu! Breakfast was great with fruit, eggs, smoothies and the usual bread, tea and coffee. The lady serving breakfast is wonderful and will bend over backwards to make your day start off right. The kitchen is small but fully stocked with everything you could need! The rooms are clean, large and there are lockers available too. I would highly recommend this hostel and will definitely come back on our next visit to Cusco. Thank you for a great stay!

Great place to stay; cheap, clean, friendly

We really enjoyed our stay at Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to us. They offer free locker storage even for nights you're not staying with them, which was really useful when our group was away for 4 days hiking the Inca Trail. It's a little out of the ways of some of the other popular hostels (it's maybe a 15-20 minute walk to Plaza de Armas), but the service and staff are great.

Best hostal I've ever stayed at

In brief,Javier and the team at Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta really deserve 5 out of 5. Location wise, the hostal is a little out of the main area, but I like that, because you get to see more of the city and locals doing their day to day thing. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to Plaza de Armas. The service is very friendly, professional and helpful. Javier will always find time to resolve any problems you may have. When my friend's luggage failed to arrive from England, he contacted the airlines so she could go on her pre-arranged tours. But as with any great service, the whole team are class. They work very hard to keep the hostal clean. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily and I don't think I've ever seen such highly polished floors before. I suppose this is a bit of a downfall in an odd way because I kept slipping on the rugs on the polished floors. At 3am half asleep, it's a bit of a wakener! Breakfast is bread, butter and jam but with additions of pancakes, eggs or juice and they'll still serve you if you miss the 10am deadline. If you do want to stay in a quiet, non party hostal with tip top service and always a smile, book yourself a room at Hospedaje Turistico Recoleta. It's very good value for money and I doubt you'll regret it!
