Budget travel: Globetrotter reviews Peru’s hostels (Part II)


One international globetrotter is making her way through Peru and documenting the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to hostels .*Part Two*

In my last Peru hostel roundup I covered places to bunk down in Iquitos, Lima, and Huacachina. This edition focuses one just one city, that epicenter of Peruvian tourism that is Cusco Here, all the major hostel brands vie for attention alongside small, one-off competitors. The upside? There’s plenty to choose from. The downside? It’s hard to know which place will be perfect for you. In my time in the city I stayed at three very different hostels and got a good feel for the city’s budget accommodation scene.
