We had a great stay here last August. All our trekking trips were organised through the B & B and I would recommend La Casa de Maruja B & B to stay. Only a short taxi ride into town too. Breakfast was a good start to the day and the staff were very helpful and provided very good local knowledge.

What a deal! What an experience! Highly recommend! Less than USD 1.00 to taxi into downtown Huaraz (5-10 minutes). Owners are very friendly and accommodating, and they possess all needed local knowledge including hiking/trekking/climbing. We were so impressed, we paid owner Gilf to lead us on Santa Cruz trek.

Although a short 5 minute taxi ride out of town, and despite a bit of a mix up on our arrival, this is a very good value hostel. The staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. Definitely recommended.

I visited Peru for a number of years when climbing in the Cordillera Blanca. As an owner of the International Mountain Climbing School in North Conway, NH I used La Casa de Maruja as a base for all of our expeditions. Gilf and Maruja are the perfect host and hostess. They genuinely care about each person and did their best... More

Gilf and his wife were amazing hosts and our stay with them was fantastic. Their place was clean and quiet with a nice rooftop patio complete with amazing views of the Cordillera Blanca. Gilf helped us plan everything from transportation to our next destinations, day trips to local hikes from the B&B to ordering the best local pizza delivered. It... More

Before going there they already told me that from 3 nights that I have booked only one will work. I explained them that that was not my problem that I had the reservation and that he should talk to booking, venere, hotels.com, etc. They told me that I had no reservation. I spent a good amount of time talking to... More

Reading these reviews I can see that everything has pretty much already been said. The only thing I can add is that i have very fond memories of the place, that even though the movie collection is not the best the view from our window was, and that the cheese and that the avocado that they sell at the corner...

We traveled to Huaraz for the beautiful landscape and to experience the different hikes nearby. We ended up doing the lake 69 trail, Canyon de Pato, and lake Patron. We also spent a lot of time exploring the city if Huaraz, which we ended up liking very much. And we were so glad to have chosen La Casa de Maruja... More

We had a great 4 night stay here. Excellent value for money. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts - they assisted us with everything from organising hiking trips to booking bus tickets. They fetched us from the bus terminal at 7am and provided us with breakfast on arrival. Highly recommended!
