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

We stayed at Wara Wara twice during our vacation in Peru. The view from the hostel is great and it's only a short walk from the city square. Didn't mind the few stairs up to the place. The owners are really nice and friendly people! Recommended.

Stayed here for a total of 6 nights. 4 nights before our 5-day Salkantay trek and 2 nights after. Miguel and his family are wonderful hosts. Hot showers, comfortable beds, included breakfast and an amazing view! We were able to lighten our load while hiking by leaving some things here - much appreciated!

Amazing view of Cusco city from the balcony area. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good. Hostel is quite close to Sacsaywaman , just 15 minutes walk (though its a steep walk) Owner , Miguel was great. He helped us plan our trip Cusco onwards.

I only stayed here a night, which was such a shame as it is a really nice hostel run by a very attractive couple, their adorable children, and very friendly dog Tito. The location is key here – set on the hillside just below San Cristobel it’s not that bad a climb from Cusco town centre (10 mins from the... More

My friends and I stayed here before doing the Inca trail to Machu Pichu. The view blew me away! The owner Miguel and his family were very sweet and helpful. The location was great and near the city center. The rooms were small and the shower wasn't the best, but deff doable and affordable. Id recommend staying here if you... More
