    Our stay at Samay Wasi was amazing!! We almost didn’t want to leave to go out for the day because the atmosphere is so nice (always a cup of tea when you need it). The view from the patio overlooking the city is truly breathtaking, and Marco was always so helpful and kind whenever we needed anything! The breakfasts is the mornings were lovely too. Such a cozy place to come back to after a long day :) Would HIGHLY recommend.

    Ten minute walk to the main square. It's more of a guesthouse than hostel atmosphere. Great view from the balcony. Rooms were good value for money.

    Nice hostel, but the common area is quite small, and so are the rooms. It's not far from the Plaza de Armas, but those last few blocks uphill can be a killer. Free pick up from the airport was much appreciated.

    The hostel has lovely views over Cusco. We had a private room with en-suite which was a good size and clean. Breakfast was standard simple hostel breakfast. The kitchen available was useful but tiny. Staff were friendly and helpful, we also used the free air port pick up which was a great addition! The hostel is up a hill with a flight of steps to walk up with bags so just be prepared for a bit of huffing and puffing, it’s doable though!

    Henry was helpful the whole time.The other guy was friendly at the beginning till he offered his tours but we told him we already set. He had an actitud after that.We stayed for 8 days but only once they cleaned the room.The heater is not working properly we were so cold till we got into the blankets maybe there is a timer that only for few hours are on at night but most of the time the room was cold. Definitely Henry did his best, he was so kind to dropped off our laundry while were in a tou
