I highly recommend this guest house. It is a very pleasant and comfortable place to stay. It is owned and managed by Gilf and Maruja, who are friendly, helpful, and hard-working. Gilf is also an excellent trekking and climbing guide who organized and lead our fabulous 10-day Alpamayo Circuit trek.

We had a very pleasant stay at this B&B, before and after our trek in Huascaran National Park. Gilf and Maruja were extremely friendly and helpful, providing information on getting to places in the area, where to do laundry, where to eat etc. He even picked me up at the bus station when I rolled in at 6:30 a.m.!

The couple - Gilf and Maruja - are totally committed to your perfect stay at their place. The place is in the north of the city and not far from the town center (it takes 4 soles to pick a cab). Decent facilities (and blanket, linen, towel etc) are all provided. Breakfast is served hot depending on the next day´s... More

Owners were so great. Incredibly hospitable and helpful. One of the owners had incredible insight on hikes in the area, breakfast spots (Cafe Andino!!), and hints as to how to get around better in Huaraz. If you forget a rain jacket and you go in the rainy season, He will even rent you one of his rain coats for S/.3.... More

During our 2 months travelling Bolivia and Peru, this hostal's owners were by far the kindest and most helpful of all we stayed at. Gilf the owner made sure everything went well. From having us being picked up from the bus station to arranging our hikes. He did a great job.

Maruja was an incredibly gracious, warm and helpful host. When we were in Huaraz my boyfriend was really sick and Maruja made sure that he had not tea and good food while we were there. The rooms were great and she was also helpful with arranging tours and guides for tours for us and other guests. The only issue that... More

This is a great place to chill out for a few days in Huaraz. It is away from the noise of the town but the town is easily accessible (4sol by taxi, 1.8 sol by Collectivo). The wifi is good, the rooms comfortable, breakfast tasty and lounge good to relax in. We watched a DVD from their collection while there.... More

We had a lovely stay here. The owners are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Gilf speaks good English and met us late at night at the bus station. The house is clean and room serviced without being asked. It would be better with a bed side lamp and curtains that aren't see through. The breakfast was tasty, scrambled eggs with onion... More
