The Samay Wasy is absolutely an excellent hostel, and I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to live in the real atmosphere of Cusco. The hostel is located in the beautiful San Blas district, ten minutes (slow walk) to the city center and the neighborhood is very quiet and above all safe. Once you get there you will be amazed by the view of the city from the terrace. My praise goes to the staff as well, very difficult to find any better around!


The lady who welcomed us at reception was very helpful. The hostel offered us a free transfer back to the airport to catch our flight out of Cuzco, which was great. Our flight was very early so they also offered to have breakfast ready for us at 5am for no extra charge, which was much appreciated. Our double room with private bath was comfortable. The only thing was that it was very cold, even with the heather in there. The hostel's a little bit of a walk from the centre.


It was really nice to stay there for several nights! Highly recommend it to all Cusco visitors.


Possibility we got bed bugs there. Avoid placing personal clothing etc on vulernable surfaces such as couches, beds.
