good location, the reception was very nice and gave us many advice
The most wonderful thing about staying at UKUKUS is their amazing staff. We interacted with a few more but the ones who really helped us out during the stay were Ruth and Angela. They are great hosts and was quick to respond when we needed assistance (especially for getting around), they even helped to book a private taxi to pick us up 3 hours away when I had a medical emergency. It felt like we were staying amongst friends and I could truly relax and feel comfortable. While this hostel is simple, we really like the location (historical centre, about 15 min walk to the main plaza, 5 min walk from San Pedro Market!), the fact that there’s a kitchen and fridge, the view from the patio, free tea and coca leaves. UKUKUS is pretty clean and they ask every day if we want our room cleaned. Noise level is pretty low, and most days we wake up to the sound of birds. It has a very homely feel.
There are only two things I will comment on, and even these are not horrendous. First is the wifi: it’s very unpredictable and sometimes it just won’t connect. Second is the hot water: twice there was no hot water in the shower and we have to ask them to turn it on/fix it (to which they responded really fast and got it fixed within 10 minutes!). Both of these are not even deal breakers for me, and if everything else remained the same, I would still book with UKUKUS. This is why I’m still giving the rating that I did.
I really liked the bathroom as well as the staff were really helpful and let us storage our luggage
The % you pay if you use a credit card is higher than everywhere else I got to use my card
friendly and helpful staff, a lot of common space, quiet location, no nose around - 15 min walk to the centre
no sunlight, the windows faces a fence so it was cold
The property is quite well maintained They have a very spacious kitchen Hot water with good pressure all time The hostel is quiet Outdoor rooftop space Lockers The location is good for us. It’s close to the Market and the price on this street is cheaper than the other parts of Cusco old town
No breakfast is provided though not a big issue for us as they have a big kitchrn
