My wife and I stayed at Hostal Cusi Wasi for several days in January 2013. The staff of the hostal were extremely helpful from the very first inquiry that we made. They arranged all of our tours in the Cusco area and our trip to Macchu Pichu. Our room was small but very clean and more than adequate for our stay. Again, while we were in Cusco, the staff was always helpful, warm, and friendly. I highly recommend using them as your base for any trip to Cusco and Macchu Pichu.
