What a fabulous place to stay in Cusco! Wara Wara sits at the top of a steep alley called Resbalosa: 'slippery' in Spanish. Don't rush it, enjoy the climb, all the curious little features, and then rest on the hostel's balcony and enjoy the magnificent vista over Cusco. Miguel, Viviana and their boys share their calm home with you in... More

We had a great stay! The hosts went above and beyond for us and always had a tip or suggestion for things to do in Cusco. We will definitely be back to the beautiful city of Cusco and when we do we will be happy to stay at hostal wara wara again!

This is a small place run by a young family. Here are things that some people will not like, that did not bother me in the slightest: there are two young children, including a baby who cries a fair amount. It is set up over the town by three blocks which is great for the view but you need to... More

We stayed in Wara Wara for two nights. I only wish, we have booked this place for longer stay. Returning from physically demanding treks to Wara Wara was like coming back home. Friendly proprietors, fantastic view from balcony and absolutely great choice of music for those evenings that you can curl up on a couch with glass of whisky in... More

We spend one night before going to Machu Picchu and two nights afterwards. The hotel is in the San Cristobal area, and benefits from a beautiful city view, including a perfect view on the Plaza de Armas from the lobby terrace. However, the hotel is on the city heights, it is only 5 minutes from the Plaza de Armas but... More

This was the friendliest place we've stayed at in Peru. Miguel and his wife offered dinner to guests. It was excellent. The common areas are good for mixing with other guests. Clean and basic accommodations. Not far from the central plaza though it is a steep walk.

From the moment I arrived, the hostel owners made me feel at home. The breakfast every morning was delicious. Also, (for an extra cost) you can experience a Peruvian dinner. The views from the lobby are stunning, and it is a short walk to the Plaza de Armas. They accept U.S dollars as well as soles as payment (as well... More

We stayed in the apartment through air bnb but shared the facilities with the hostel so thought I would write a review. Miguel is incredibly helpful as a host, booked us taxis to the airport and offered delicious and reasonably priced breakfast and dinner. The view from the hostel balcony is spectacular and worth the stay alone

Some hotel owners have given a lot of thought to what will make their guests happy and comfortable during their stay and have trained their staffs well to make sure everything goes smoothly. Unfortunately, this was not one of those places. What else could account for no drinking glasses in the room and no bath mat. Since the hostal is... More

We stayed a Wara Wara twice, once for 4 nights before our trek to Machu Picchu and 1 night afterwards. The proprietors, Miguel and Viviana and their sweet sons Luciano and Victorio (and cute pup, Tito) form a delightful, welcoming family. The rooms are nice, cosy, and clean. The views from the balcony of the Plaza de Armas and the... More
