          Hi, I am traveling with a group of four to do a 3 day, 2 night Machu Picchu hike. We are interested in booking a room at Mama Simona Hostel for a night at the beginning of our trip, and then returning to stay an additional night once we complete our hike. In order to store our luggage, would we need to reserve rooms for the entire duration of our trip in Cusco, or could we simply book the two nights (one at the beginning, one at the end of the trip)? Thanks!

          If you let the girl know they can keep your luggage and will respect what ever promo you reserve at the time. If you reserve x amount of days they will hold them till you get back. Just let them know when you get there.
