8/10 Very good

Good price for hostel, water was warm but not hot. Toilet would run if you didn’t jiggle the handle and toilet would leak if you didn’t stop it. Staff was able to fix it. Breakfast was adequate and included which was nice especially for the price. Bedding was comfortable and clean. Only thing I really wanted was hotter water, that would be the only thing stopping me from going back.

4/10 Fair

The staff was very friendly, but the property was disappointing. The restaurant/bar mentioned was not open — I’m not sure if that’s been true since the pandemic — but I understood that. However, there was mold on my bathroom ceiling. My largest complaint is that when I came to retrieve the luggage they held for me behind the desk during the day after I checked out (which was kind of them), I was able to walk right in, search the upstairs for staff (since no one was at the desk and the front door is unlocked), and — after not finding anyone — grab my luggage out of the closet and leave. Knowing that anyone can walk in and explore the entire hostel and grab my stored luggage without encountering any staff or security measures (I had already checked out so I required no key to do so) makes me certain I would not stay again for safety concerns. Aguas Calientes feels safe overall, but this problem plus the fact that the hostel was basically empty just made it feel unsafe.

Made reservation...but they were closed!
Well...not sure how to review since when I showed up the hostel was closed and according to a shop owner nearby, they had been closed for a long time due to the pandemic. I had to figure out another hotel

The trip was great. The only problem was the reception is not 24 hours and I was locked out as I went for dinner late and couldn’t get back into the hostel.

Ecopackers Hostel was the perfect place to relax and unwind during our Machu Picchu trip. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the rooftop bar/restaurant was fun and eclectic. We would definitely recommend staying here to other travelers!

Ecopackers Hostal
Front desk was friendly but bar / breakfast staff was terrible. She lay on a beanbag chair and watched TV. Never even asked if we needed anything. Room smelled, beds soft and sagged, was noisy as it is right beside train tracks and the bar noise goes right down the hallways. Would not stay here again.
