I arrived here for my final 8 days in Cusco after hiking the SalkantayTrek through the Andes, From the moment I arrived I was treated like family felt right at home, I had suffered an ankle & Back injury during my trek and they were getting worse so the owner Guido had a doctor come and pick me up and take me to a nearby clinic / Hospital to get Xrays & a Dr. consultation. My room was clean with a large bathroom, cable TV & a safe and was more then adequate. Breakfast & hot coffee or coca tea were served every morning downstairs in the nice little dining area and was always great local style breakfasts. Anything I needed at anytime all I had to do was ask Guido or Ruben and it was taken care of promptly & with pleasure. Theyre Parrot in the courtyard was an added bonus as for the first 2 days when I would walk through I kept hearing someone talking to me but didn't see anyone until I realized it was the Parrot, could sing and say Hola! everytime I walked in. I'm going back next year for another trek in Peru and will stay here again for sure -Jonathan Angelo

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights, and we would definitely stay again. The bed was comfy, and the shower warm (most of the time). WIFI would come in and out but the staff took care of it when I asked. They were super friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Our flight landed in Cusco at 5 am and we were even able to check in and take a nap before exploring the city, which was nice given the time of day. The owner also has a parrot and a cat, which can sometimes be found in the courtyard chilling. If you like animals like we do, it made for an entertaining stay. Breakfast was nice and homemade, and they offered tea and coffee at any time. The only downside is that it is a 30 minute or so walk from the Plaza de Armas, but it is a straight shot on the Ave El Sol so don't be worried about your safety, even at night.

Nice place nice staff. the hostel has a nice outdoor space. The room was nice though it did not come with any soap or shampoo. Wi-Fi was good. They do offer breakfast. The gentleman at the welcome desk was very nice and took lots of time working with me helping me though we did not speak the same language which was greatly appreciated. The only thing was that my room was very cold and there was no way to heat it

Hotel was a decent location for the inca express bus to Puno early in the morning, it's a little walk to restaurants etc and rooms are quite dated, but they are clean and the showers are good. For the price payed it was all in all very reasonable

Stayed here for 5 nights and were very impressed and surprised Samichay is classed as a hostel. All areas clean, constant hot water, plentiful and varied breakfast, hot drinks available all day, on site kitchen ( we did not use), good wifi throughout. Host friendly and helpful - arranged Machu Picchu trip for us and got up to prepare 3.00 breakfast. Secure on site parking for our motor bike and side car.
