The staff is great - they make the atmosphere very comfortable :) really clean! But: breakfast is not included if you book a dorm, thats irritating


thank u guys for amazing hosting hahahahah it was very nice to meet u im sure i come back ;)


I am so glad I chose to stay here and not in an overpriced hostel ar Huacachina. Very friendly owners... collected me from the busstop and gave me a detailed explanation of Ica and advice on how to get to Nazca and do an overflight very cheaply. Very clean, new and quiet hostel.


Amazing hostel. Brand new. With the most amazing owners.


Was closed when we arrived. People told us it was closed for quite a while. Had to book another hostel


Yoship (owner) was great - friendly, helpful and full of life. Hostel was very clean and he was always seen cleaning. He's currently still building it to add another floor and then turn the rooftop into a bar with a jacuzzi - it's going to be amazing! Wifi was good and location is perf as close to the bus station (about 5/10min walk). Yoship got everyone together on our last night and he even provided drinks which was really sweet and played music on the rooftop. Shame we only stayed 1 night!


Had an excellent stay here!! Run by two brothers doing a top notch job. Yoship was extremely welcoming and ensures all his guests have a great time!! Whether it's learning parts of your language, singing, taste in music, or having a drink!! Hostel itself is nice and cosy, excellent bathroom facilities and VERY CLEAN. Would love to see this place in a few years times as the expansion plans look amazing!! Keep it up!!


We really enjoyed Ica Wasi. The hosts, Giancarlo and Yoship, were very fun, friendly and informative. The hostel was very clean with some construction ongoing but which did not affect our stay. They offered a tour including Pisco/wine tasting and a trip to Huacachina for sandboarding/buggies (5 hours for 60 soles each which we found to be good value), easily the highlight as Ica itself does not have much to offer. The fridges were a big plus. Some cutlery would be a good addition.


The hostel is owned by the interesting and friendly brothers. 5 min walk to the Cruz del Sur bus station and 10 min to downtown, very comfortable beds and clean bathrooms with hot showers. Wifi sometime slow though. The sand boarding tour offered by the brothers is of great value!


A lovely, small hostel, the two brothers are extremely nice and helpful guys, thank you so much. The hostel is very clean and has a great terrace on the roof and a recycle system, that is probably unique in Peru. :-)

As hosts you guys are different because you like to interact with the backpackers.This is very special in comparison to other hosts out there! Keep doing what you are doing :)


The staff was really helpfull and very welcoming. The hostel was VERY clean from bathroom to beds. Very good hostel.


Excellent place to stay at. The brothers took their time to point out every single location and its distance from the hostel so it would better help me navigate. They also were very helpful in helping to book for events that I wanted to do. I would recommend these guys to anyone who is planning to stay in Ica.


The hosts were very Nice, very helpful. They provided us with all information we needed. They offer excursions with good quality price. We enjoyed an excursion to balletas Island, whig we highly recommend. Very clean, hot water guaranteed. Yet you have to be aware That the hostel is under work. So not the Best accommodation to enjoy lie in.


The hostel is a one minute walk from the mini-market. It shares an alley with the local town/bar so if you come on a weekend expect lots of noise until late in the night. There is hot water and a kitchen. No security or luggage storage. You can rent a bike and bike to th national park (about 24 km round trip).


Ica Wasi was wonderful! The brothers who own the hostel are great and they have a great vision for the hostel that they shared with us. The rooftop is a cool place to hang out, but there isn't much of a common area otherwise. It's a little far from the center of town to get to anything but it's not too bad. They have a mini fridge but they should get some bowls/plates/silverware and maybe a microwave. Overall, really enjoyed our stay! Would love to see what this place will be like in a few years


The sublime staff and excellent atmosphere of Ica Wasi is unmistakable. The two brothers who run the place will make you feel at home and even took me to a local bar with their friends to watch copa America. Although no breakfast and basic facilities, the hostel provides you with everything you need to have a great stay in Ica and any will make reservations for tours to huacachina and the surrounding bodegas. Would definitely stay here again if I return to the area!


Great staff, a little noisy, but a central Ica location.
