Really lovely staff, very helpful. The hot water kept my working but they couldn't have been more apologetic or tried harder to sort it. Lovely view. Beds weren't very comfortable but it's a cheap stay!!


A real find! Make sure you get a room on the second floor for amazing city views (on first floor absolutely no view!). Furthermore this hostel had everything you need; good beds, nice free breakfast, and a super friendly and helpful staff. When we had to leave early to the airport, they arranged a taxi for us and made sure we had some breakfast before we left. Absolutely recommend this hostel!


We stayed at a private room with bathroom. Everything was perfect, from the staff, good breakfest, cleanliness. They clean the room every morning. The hostel, actually is more like a B&B. Nice balcony with a city view and 24hr tea. The only con was the bathroom door which give you no privace. We loved and definitely will stay there again. The location of the hostel is uphill, but them can pick you up at the airport or bus terminal.


Great view of the city. Nice and friendly staff. Warm water


Good location, amazing view, really nice staff. 100% recomendable if you want to do tourism and sleep good, this is not a party hostel.

Samai Wasi was excellent. The 6 bed dorm with ensuite in which we stayed was impeccably clean with very warm and comfortable beds. The bathroom was basic but very clean and had abundant hot water. The staff were hugely helpful, and the onsite travel agent (James) speaks perfect English and can organize just about anything. I would highly recommend this place!


Located uphill so good to stay before going on any Machupicchu trekking to get used to the altitude. Breakfast is only two pieces of bread with jam and butter and tea/coffee. Not much of facilities to enjoy but it the night view is quite beautiful. It's a two-story place and the wooden floor is quite old. We stayed downstairs and were constantly woken up by the noise from upstairs (people simply walked around but sound somehow gets extremely loud and you just can't sleep).

A fantastic homely hostel run by very enthusiastic and friendly staff. Samay Wasi was one of the best hostels I have stayed in in South America.
