Lovely little hostal, & great value. 5 minute walk from Plaz a des Armas. Very narrow street with much traffic to get there, but bonus that there is a fantastic pizzeria a minute walk up this street, & a very good sandwich shop/cafe near the end.
Hot water was sporadic, compared to other similar hostals, but as I have already said value was undisputable.
The staff was so helpful during my whole stay, especially the boy who speaks English. Breakfast was excellent as it was served in the sister property, a 3 star hotel just 50 meters down the street. Good value for money. Location was perfect close to major tourist attractions. Hot water in the shower and heating in the room. Quiet location.
The room was very small and so was the bathroom. The ceiling is also low so not recommended for people with claustrophobia and there is no space for luggage and clothes. On my departure day I booked a taxi in the reception as I thought this would be the safest option. The driver charged me 15 soles for a 1km journey though it normally is 5 soles. The rate had been agreed with the driver without my consent. To make matters worse the driver gave me counterfeit money in change. Would have been better off hailing a taxi on the street.
Perfect location, very close to Plaza de Armas, Mercado Artezanal or Calle Puputi (with collectivos to Pisac). Small but clean and comfortable room. Great check in - out experience (free luggage storage service), very nice and helpful staff, managment.
It’s simples and have a good location to access some main locations in the city
Good position of the property which is 10 minutes walking far from the main square and close to San Blas, where you can find a lot of cozy and nice spots for eating. The staff is kind and the breakfast good.
The room was definitely small: we are not luxury travelers but we barely fit our backpacks! Moreover the room was cold because of the super thin glasses of the windows...one day I had fever but I had to walk around the city because outside was way hotter than inside! Another small thing: every day we had the bed done (even if the first day we asked not to enter but okay, not a big deal) while the towels were every time folded completely wet. We appreciated the kindness but it was not needed to fold also the dirty clothes. Watch out because not all the minivans or buses of the organized tours manage or want to arrive in front of the hostal because of the steep street.
A stay at Hostal El Auqui places you in the heart of Cusco, within a 10-minute walk of Plaza de Armas and Cusco Cathedral. Featured amenities include express check-in, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
