Close to train
Gal at the didn’t speak English, but we were able to get but with Goggle Translator. She gave me an umbrella to use the morning I went to Machu Picchu as it was raining. She also packed me a bag breakfast for my early morning. Nice room with view of the river. Great location and easy to find from the train station. Friendly staff.

Great place for a great price
A stone's throw away from the train station, but not noisy. Our room had a spectacular view of the river. The staff were very friendly and informative about the bus trip to Machu Picchu. Plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, and a nice breakfast (bread, local cheese, fruit, tea, coffee).

La Payacha
The staff was not super friendly. Had to ask them twice to turn on hot water so we could shower. Awesome view of river & super close to great restaurants.

Good for the price
Our room at Hostal La Payacha was good for the price. They spoke very little English, but were very accommodating to our needs. The room was clean and right across from the train station. No hot water (or like Cusco limited hours for hot water and we didn't know what they were).A lot of restaurants and shops nearby as well as the place to catch the bus to Machu Picchu was close by. It worked well for us for a one night stay.
