The Hosteria is a beautiful, relaxing lodge, on the hillside, overlooking the town of Vilcabamba. The cabins are very comfortable, and the restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices, with artesanal German beer, and WiFi! The swimming pool was a sweet treat after a hot day

I love this place-- have been to Vilca numerous times, having stayed at other properties-- and would never stay anywhere but the Izhca in the future. Everything about it is inspiring: the free yoga every morning (and other yoga options, too), the other travelers you will meet,

I visited Izhcayluma in November and it was absolutely a very pleasant stay. The combination of yoga, the beautiful view and the trekking is great. It is really a very beautiful environment at the Hostería with many relaxing spots, a pool and hammocks overlooking the mountains.

The only kitchen is used by the hostel staff, but in front of its hostel there are some little houses for monthly or weekly rent and include your own kitchen and living room. You can ask about it to Izchaylumas staff.

I agree. There is a similar eco lodge at the other end of town if Izh is full.

Disculpen la demora. Ni sabia que se puede escribir mensajes en tripadvisor. Para darles el mejor precio posible, Hosteria Izhcayluma se decidio de no ser parte de ninguna pagina web como "booking" "expedia", "despegar", etc. para hacer reservaciones. Estas paginas cobran un alto porcentaje de comision y los hotels lo cargan al final a sus huespedes. RESERVACIONES por favor solamente y directamente con nuestra pagina web propia. Muchos saludos desde Vilcabamba Peter Schramm Gerente propietario Hosteria Izhcayluma
