Ecopackers is an exclusive hang out for those who want the privilege of an incredible stay in Cusco in a vintage house, in one of the first "Casonas" built by the Spanish settlers when they conquered the Inca Empire, nearly five hundred years ago.
I had a great time at this hostel. Carmen Rosa and her staff were very welcoming and professional. Always willing to satisfy the customer. The location is close to the Plaza de Armas which is very convenient. The restaurant in the hostel kept us content...More
I used Ecopackers as my base for a bunch of trip and it was perfect! Convenient location and easy storage facilities. I had a couple of days with quick turn around (arriving back late at night and leaving early in the morning) and the front...More
Carnen is supper helpful. She is very warm hearted person. You will enjoy staying here!! People who wanna have a good time must stay here. Price is not that high if you stay in the dorm. The location is great too.
Beautiful hostel with Wi-Fi, restaurant, and breakfast included. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the rooms were clean and quiet. It's located very close to the main plazas (de Armas, de Regocijo, and de San Francisco), and it also includes a travel agency...More
I really enjoyed staying here. The shared rooms are spacious enough to not feel too crowded, everything was clean, and breakfast is pretty decent considering that it's free. My group utilized the free luggage storage which helped immensely during our small overnight trips to lake...More

my advice?...don't go to a kiosk in the airport unless you are JUST arriving in Peru and dont know the difference between registered cabs and not. They are more expensive and if your backpacking...ever dollar counts! Take a street cab. I only payed 6 soles and refused to pay more. If you're getting in a cab, look for photo ID (should be on dashboard or right hand corner of window) and if there's a dispatch system that is the best. ALWAYS negotiate a set price before you even set foot in the cab. The one that I used to take a lot I think was called tourismo or touristico???...something along those lines?! you could send an email to the hostel or google safe taxi companies.
ALSO if you have time, and if you like beautiful incredible things, I highly suggest taking a collectivo (6 soles) to a town about an hour and a half away called Ollantaytambo. I lived there for a month and it is COVERED in beautiful Inka ruins. if you want to go for a ten minute walk, or if you want to do a 5 day trek up mount Veronika it is safe, STUNNING and so tranquil. As a single female traveler I lived in my tent for 3 days and it was one of the best experiences that I had.
All the best on your travels!
