We really enjoyed our stay at Wara Wara. Miguel and Viviana are lovely hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Miguel's homemade breakfast is the best we've had in Peru and he gave us great recommendations of things to see and places to eat. It's a steep climb from the Plaza de Armas but it's... More

We loved staying with Miguel and Viviana at Wara Wara Hostel! The place was beyond comfortable with great beds and a huge toilet. We slept so well! It has an amazing view of Cusco from the top and it was just breathtaking! They have a pet Schnauzer, Tito which everyone adores and their little son, Luciano is the cutest baby... More

My partner and I arrived here really late almost at 11 PM on our return from the Inca Trail. The bed was very comfortable, the showers had warm water, we were in need of that and Cusco is very cold during June. The breakfast includes coffee, bread, egg and a natural juice freshly made. It was what we needed after... More

WOW! I understand some of the minor critiques in previous reviews, but Miguel is an excellent host who is working hard to make this one of the best hostels/places to stay in Cusco. He and Viviana treated me like absolute gold on both of my stays there (before and after Salkantay trek). As long as you love a quiet dog... More

We arrived in Cusco for only 1 night, and had luckily arranged for a taxi pick-up through the hostel (this is worth doing - cost is 20 soles, but taxis at the airport will harass you and quote much more). It being the day of Inti Raimi, many streets were closed to traffic (including the one running at the back... More

With a name that sounds almost Australian,this place has wide appeal to an interesting cross section of people. There are lots of thirty somethings couples, as well as just graduated college students, families with older teens and a scattering of solo travelers , young and old. Many are backpackers heading for one of the Inca trails, but there are plenty... More

Positives: Great views from the room! Helpful staff. Walk the cobbled streets down to the plaza. Walk down to San Blas district. Walk down to the market. Not a busy area and is across from San Cristobal church. Can take a taxi up to the hostel if you don't want the exercise. Pisco Sour is now my favorite drink! I... More

After reading the reviews on TA, I was confident booking a room with Wara Wara. However, Wara Wara did not meet my expectations and is sadly overrated. Wara Wara is a budget hostal within walking distance of Plaza de Armas. It is near the top of a steep hill next to San Cristobal Cathedral. Trust the reviews: this hill is... More

Dear Christopher: Thank you so much for your detailed report. Even when your review is so complete, there are some important things that you are not mentioning. You are very clear saying the 2 blocks uphill are “a monster”, but it would be nice of you to mention that anybody has the option to take a taxi, from the main... More

I picked Hostal Wara Wara because of its convenient location to Saqsaywaman and Plaza de Armas. It's close to the plaza, but not too close because I'm a light sleeper. Looking at Google Maps, I thought Resbalosa and Amargura were just ordinary streets, but they're really long, steep staircases. I guess they're not too bad if you're in shape, but... More

This is a great B&B that overlooks the city of Cusco. It is a slight walk up hill but the views and value are worth it for the care and comfort. Immediately after booking I received and email from the owners asking if I would like them to arrange a cab from the airport. When I arrived, they made me... More
