4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 5 days. Very good value for money. Hostel is located a bit uphill (10-15 minutes by walking up from Plaza de Armas, however it's nothing horrible, and if you'll choose the room on the second floor, you'll be rewarded with great view). Room was spacious and clean. Equipment was a bit older, but looked OK anyway.... More

Clean rooms, great staff, free luggage storage, free coca tea, amazing views from the balcony. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It is a bit chilly at night but there are loads of blankets on the beds.

Very clean, excellent staff - very nice and helpful! Beautiful location - I would definitely stay here again. James was helpful with providing information about things to do in Cusco and throughout Peru. Very thoughtful hostel - they paid a lot of attention to the details and everything was great!

My boyfriend and I has a fantastic time staying at Samay Wasi! From the get go all the ladies running the hostel (24 hours a day) are always super friendly and accommodating. We even had their resident travel agent James pick us up from our bus, even though it was an hour and a half late! There are so many... More

Hot water, decent breakfast (and you can add delicious, huge omelets for reasonable prices), coca tea all day and the best view of the city! I would say it was perfect, but it was quite chilly when I was there - they were adding heaters to the rooms when I left, so I would definitely recommend it now. Close to... More

If you're looking for inexpensive, simple, and friendly then this is the place for you! I was here with a large group of friends and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful with checking in/out, laundry service, and accommodating breakfast very early in the morning (for us to catch our flight). On my last night, I forgot my mobile phone... More

This is a very clean, very comfortable hostel run by the most lovely women. I highly recommend. And the water is HOT! And great view of Cusco from the balcony. I loved being up the hill a bit out of the thick of things, too. Thumbs up.

We stayed here before and after completing our inca trail trek. We were in one of the upper floored rooms which had fantastic views overlooking cusco. It's located less than a 10 minute walk to plaza des armas. we were really happy to be slightly away from the hustle and bustle but still only a short walk to the main... More

Gorgeous views. Big, clean rooms. Lots of blankets. Hot water. Delicious coffee in the mornings. Very safe area. What makes this hostel extra great is the staff. They are so kind and helpful, going that extra mile to accommodate you. They even phoned the tour company we were going with that day because they hadn't showed up in the morning.... More
