SINGLE CURTAIN ROOM IN BEAUTIFUL SAN BLAS HOUSE
It is important that you read ALL the information below.
This is a cozy private space for people on a budget who want to use the facilities of our beautiful house. We are located 5 minutes walk from the Plaza San Blas and have spectacular views over Cusco.
This small private sleeping space is ideal for a single person on a budget, looking for the convenience of a well equipped and friendly house. You will have your own private sleeping area for less than the price of a noisy shared dorm room in many Cusco hostels. The house is beautiful and the views of Cusco from the veranda are magnificent. There is a bed and minimal furnishings in your room. It is a room behind a curtain. It is not a physical room with a door. It is perfect for some people but not for others. Some people have lived in this room, the longest time was for 3 months and the person was very happy here.
Please look at the photos carefully so that you are sure that it is right for you.

Q:How much privacy will I have in the curtain room?
A: The curtain is thick and sturdy and other people don't go in there. You will have as much privacy as you need.
Q: How much space is in the room?
A: Please refer to the photos. The area is not large, but there is enough room to manoeuvre and store your luggage.
Q: Will my belongings be safe in the curtain room?
A: The people living in the house are trustworthy. There is a draw with a lock and if you have anything that you need us to store for you then we can do this.
Q: Where is the curtain room located?
A: It is located above the staircase on the middle floor of the house. The kitchen is downstairs and there are bedrooms and a bathroom on this floor.
Q: How noisy is it?
A: The house is generally quiet. Obviously, in a shared house, we cannot guarantee that something won't disturb you, but mostly people pass by the room with respect for the fact that people are staying there and other people have been able to live for long periods quite happily in the space. If you ever find that you are being disturbed excessively, then we ask you to speak to us and we will try to resolve the issue. The noisiest times are usually when people are getting up and dinnertime.
Q: If I wanted to move into another room in the future, would that be possible?
A: Of course, if another room becomes available then you could choose to upgrade.
WHO IS THE CURTAIN ROOM SUITABLE FOR?
Primarily, people looking for the home comforts but who are on a budget.
The room is NOT suitable for:
More than 1 person
People who are looking for a dosshouse! We will expect you to respect the other people here as we ask them to respect you, and you will be expected to clean up after yourself as other people do as well.
Interaction with Guests
We can provide local information and help with your stay in the area. If you would like, we can sometimes show you some of the key areas in the town.
You can choose how much you want to socialise with the other people who live here. We sometimes go out together and there are 3 common areas, the living room, the veranda and the kitchen. We usually find that people who like socialising meet together, but if you prefer your stay to be a bit quieter, then you can retire to your room. The choice is yours.
The property is located in a quiet & safe residential area with small shops & huge Inka stone and garden where people sit and relax. There is private security patrolling the area at night and it is one of the better areas of the city. There is very little traffic here so there are no honking horns and the air is fresh. But you are close enough to walk to all the major places of the city.
San Blas market 3 mins walk.
San Blas square 5 mins walk.
Plaza de Armas 10 mins walk.

Cusco is built in a valley between 2 mountain ranges. Most residential areas are up from the centre, as this house is. We usually walk to & from the town, but when necessary, taxis can be hailed to bring you home. From the road there are some steps up to the door so if you have mobility questions, please ask.
Other Things to Note
Sorry for the strict cancellation policy. Because our rooms are often taken on a long term basis, cancellations hit us hard so we have to implement this.
Please remember that this is a home, not a hotel, even if you're only staying a few days. It's actually several homes all within the same building. Many people live here long-term and we all live our own lives. In order that the house runs nicely for all of us, we all clean up after ourselves...you too! We have a cleaner that comes in once a week, so there are no chores, just respect for all the guests and that we all want a nice place to stay. And it is. Almost everybody that has stayed here has respected this and we are so grateful to them.
That goes for noise too. Most of us socialise, but not all at the same time, so keep noise to a minimum if you come in late at night or leave early morning.
Please keep your room in decent order and respect the items provided. Damages must be paid for. You are renting the room as you would in a home, not a hostel, environment. Your room will be clean when you move in, and equipment is provided for you to maintain this. If you don't have time to clean your room then you can ask our cleaner and pay her independently.
Similarly with bedding, we provide this, and a towel if you need one, but we don't have enough for spares, so if you are staying long term, you can launder the sheets as needed.
No smoking in the house.
And, enjoy your time in Cusco!
