We stayed one night in Rumi Wasi before our Colca Canon trip. We stayed in the double en-suite, which was clean and a good size. Lovely courtyard and roof terrace (which unfortunately was being renovated while we stayed). Breakfast was pretty good, with eggs added to the standard bread and coffee, and they made it early for us before our... More

The family who runs and operates the hostel are very friendly and helpful. It's clean with hot showers and has one of the better wifi connections in town, but only in common areas. It's a short walk to the town center in a quiet part of town. Has a nice little roof patio. Great bargain for travelers!

We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were incredibly friendly and they also did us a great deal on a tour the next day to Cruz del Condor with a fantastic company. The breakfast was good and you have great views of the sunset. It's not luxury but it's got hot water and warm beds, what more could you... More

The hostel room itself was fine for the price. Comfortable bed. No heating but enough blankets to be warm enough at night and hot shower (when it worked). Wifi works ok. Just don't expect much of a level of customer service! The problems we had were no towels, pillowcases and toilet paper in the room on arrival. Fine, we'll just... More

This place was recommended on another site as a cheap place to stay. I don't know what other hostals charge in Chivay, but I didn't think 30 soles was a good value for paper thin walls, a minimally maintained bathroom, and limited perks. (I can't speak for the breakfast because I had to leave in the wee hours to catch... More

I spent two nights here because it was cheaper than other hostels and me and my two friends were able to get a private room together. The room was fine, no complaints about that. However I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO COLD IN MY LIFE. I "slept"/shivered the whole night through and woke up with a horrible headache. Plus, we wanted... More

Staff were useless, lost half of my laundry, the locks on the room didn't work, and there wasn't even any toilet roll in the bathroom. It claims to have 24hr hot water, but having spent 3 days there, there was at no point any hot water. For a few extra Soles, stay somewhere else!
