I stayed here recently while doing a cycling tour of the Cordillera Blanca. The hotel itself is nice and very clean with an incredible view from the patio. Breakfast is quite good (bread and jam with eggs or pancakes) and the coffee is good and plentiful. However, the best part of the stay was how helpful the staff were in... More

This hostal was affordable and in a great location, very walkable to the city center of Huaraz. My husband and I stayed 3 nights while doing day hikes in the Cordillera Blanca. The bed was the most comfortable we had in all of Peru. Two pillows! No problems with hot water or water pressure. The staff was very helpful, helping... More

We stayed here two months ago, and had great service. The breakfast every morning was delicious, with roof top views of the Andes. The rooms were very clean with comfortable beds. The two ladies and owner provided us with several local recommendations for food and shopping.

We had 2 rooms for the 4 of us in between our climbs and we had a fantastic stay. Rooms were nice and well taken care of. Breakfast on the roof top patio was a great way to start the day. We highly recommend it!

This was the loveliest place I stayed during my month in Peru. Only S80/night including full breakfast with French-press coffee. Spotless, cozy yet modern, quiet yet welcoming. Two sisters run the place, and do an efficient & friendly job, desoite being very busy. Neighbors' crowing roosters wake you in time for your excursions. Rooftop dining & terrace with stunning 360...

We had a lovely stay pre and post Santa Cruz trek. The two ladies who run this place (apparently there is a male owner floating somewhere about) are wonderful and so very helpful. We arrived very early in the morning by overnight bus and we were welcomed with a room and breakfast (and coffee). Best reception post overnight bus that... More

This is a great find in Huaraz with rooms arranged around a central courtyard. The beds are comfortable with alpaca blankets, the bathroom is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served on the rooftop deck with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Breakfast is different every day: eggs, or fruit with yogurt,or crepe with banana, bread, juice... More

We stayed at Olaza’s for a few days prior to, and after hiking the Santa Cruz Circuit. What a great place! Every morning we were provided with tea, fresh bread, and scrambled eggs. One morning when we had an early departure, the staff made it a point to get up early and fix our breakfast. It is well-located and within... More

A really great guest house; spacious, comfortable rooms with a beautiful terrace looking out over the mountains. We arrived at 7am and they checked us in and gave us breakfast that morning at no extra charge. There is a cosy lounge room with a TV, plus a range of books and magazines.They arranged a day trip to Ranralpalca Glacier for... More
