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

I stayed here while in Peru to acclimatize before my mt. bike trip in Cusco. The balcony had incredible views of the Cordillera Blanca and Negra. The good was great. I can't say enough good things about the owners. Also Julio runs a great mt. bike company and the riding is incredible!

Can't say enough good about Olaza's. It's always the people, all Huaraz locals. There is Intelligent, gentleman owner Tito and his older brother, knowledgable, personable Mt. Bike Adventure entrepreneur Julio. The young girls on staff are sweet, energetic, outgoing. Not "just" the people, either.... Ultra clean, sophisticated design and decore, it is functionally very well thought out, quiet, and organized.... More

My wife and I stayed here for a total of about 7 days, either side of a trekking trip we did in the Huayhuash region. It was perfect for us. The rooms are all comfortable (although a little poorly lit) and we didn't find it cold (thick blankets are provided just in case). The bathrooms are clean and there was... More

This is a lovely B&B. The staff are really friendly and helpful and really welcoming, the breakfasts are served on the rooftop terrace and were fab, and the rooms were simple and clean and quiet. Not too far from the Main Street in a safe area of Huaraz.

I stayed here for about a week. When I arrived late the first night not knowing much Spanish, Rosa was so nice and welcoming, showing me to my extremely clean and tidy room. Every day breakfast was great and something different and especially nice up on the rooftop terrace. I also did lots of mountain biking with Julio who was... More

This place is really great! Super friendly staff who are also very helpful in providing beta for hikes around Huaraz. They watched after after our baggage while we did the santa cruz trek, provided us info for day hikes and arranged for their super helpful / kind driver to take us to one of the further afield hikes. Also, french... More

The guest house is located in a nice and quiet residential area of Huaraz. It features a very nice roof terrace and simple, but clean, rooms. The hot water in the shower was good as well. Now, we found the two women in charge of the guest house to be very rude. This came as a surprise, as we´ve travelled... More
