Gringo Bill's Hostal Machu Picchu Reviews
Let down by Gringo Bill's May 09, 2009
On the website and in the Travel Channel shows, Gringo Bill's looks phenomenal. But once actually getting to the hostel, I was quite disappointed. I went with a tour group (EF tours) so that is a price estimate above. Our room smelled like mildew, including all of our bedding and pillows. The ceiling had major water damage and had these water pockets that dripped onto the floor frequently. I also know that in another one of my friend's room, there was major water leakage coming from the floor above. The shower takes about 20 minutes to get hot and until then you are stuck with a freezing trickle of water coming out of the shower head. I had really high hopes for this place, and even though the hostel was disappointing, the town of Machu Picchu is amazing and fun to be in, so don't let that scare you away :)
