“The best place we stayed at in Peru!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

We traveled for almost four weeks throughout Peru, and Hospedaje Kuntur Wasi was by far the best place we stayed. The rooms were clean and offered wonderful views of Cusco, but most of all was the helpful, loving nature of its owners, Fernando and Yanet. They took the time to get us what we needed and give us recommendations to help make our stay in Cusco much better than if we hadn't stayed there. We were only planning on a two night stay, but extended it for two additional nights. Thank you Fernando and Yanet! If we ever make it back to Peru you can guarantee we'll be staying with you again!

this quiet spot was a nice respite from the crowds of tourists in cuzco and is more of an inn than a hostel. it is in the older center but on a quiet side street. the actual building is also super charming (it is all wood with a greenhouse type center balcony area). the owners were very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this spot if you prefer to be away from the typical backpacker crowds.

I stayed for four weeks in an apartment at Kuntur Wasi - the accommodation was extremely pleasant and comfortable and brilliantly located in the most fascinating historical area of Cusco - San Blas.
All amenities were very clean and stylish, from the double rooms overlooking the beautiful city of Cusco to the computer faciilities and breakfast room. The family who runs Kuntur Wasi could not have been more helpful and charming - great ambassadors for the hospitality of Peru.

Kuntur Wasi was my base in Cusco. It is a nice little hotel a few blocks back from the central square and is close to San Blas. It is also close to the Inca ruin Saqsaywoman located just above Cusco. The only weakness with the location is that it's on one of Cusco's many narrow streets so any taxis may well have to reverse madly to drop you at your door. This does mean the hostel is quiet though.

I stayed in a triple room which was very comfy and had lots of room and storage space. The main weakness was the bathroom which they didn't always keep stocked with toilet paper and we had a few minor issues with the shower. I'm also not convinced of the sound insulation; though the hostel was always quiet at night.

The hostel also includes computers for Internet access and they do laundry and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I definitely got on well with them. Breakfast was not included. The manager speaks excellent English but the other staff only speak a little.

I was travelling with friends so I didn't spend much time socializing with other guests but the other people I did talk with at the hostel were nice too.
