My partner and I were not sure whether to come to Vilcabamba but will now find it hard to leave. The area itself is lovely. Very scenic with great hiking and a friendly laid back feel. But what has really made it is this hosteria. We stayed just over a week in two different cabanas and in a room. OK, to be fair the room was not so nice. It was dark, had very thin walls and the bed was not so comfortable. But the cabanas are wonderful as is the place itself. The food is good and well priced as are the spa treatments. Also the hostelria has gone to the trouble of printing marked hiking maps and marking the trails and have been providing free yoga classes six days per week. But the best thing is the friendliness of the place and the staff in particular. We have been away from Europe now for over 6 months but have never felt as much at home as here. Highly recommended.
