La Casa de Maruja B&B
Ranked #6 of 59 Huaraz B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 4, 2014

The house is very cosy and the owners are amazing! Maruja is very helpful and will do everything to make your stay better! They also live in the house, so everything is very clean! They provide you hot shower and Wi-fi. The breakfast is ok.
Gilf is perfect! He took us on the bus station, he organize our tour and provided us the equipments to the Santa Cruz Trekking! We were the only people who didn't felt cold during the nights on the trekking. He is very professional and knows a lot about activities around Peru and Bolivia.
Stay here and you'll have 5 star service!!!

We also were able to check in very early after arriving overnight from trujillo. We had a very large room with private bath with a window looking south toward the cordillera. Good breakfast and helpful information. When we arrived late from the lake 69 day hike guil was waiting outside and clearly concerned. He and his wife will take care of you. Location wasn't great but an easy cab to town. We walked into town one day, about 20 minutes, but the walk is along a busy highway so not pleasant.

Stayed at Casa de Maruja early December 2013 for 4 Nights. Nice rooms, homely atmosphere, good breakfast. We really appreciated the early check-in (we arrived 6am) and x-treme late check-out at 9pm with no additonal cost, just before caching the night bus to Lima. Just, it's a bit outside of Huaraz, so you need a cab/collective to get some dinner, but it's more quiet than in the city center.

Everything was very nice!
The house is very comfortable and cozy, with fireplace, and it's also where live Maruja and Gilf, the owners of the hostel.
The room is spacious, clean and the beds have lots os blankets!
The bathroom is also nice, with very hot water. The wifi works well in the room.
The location is ok, not in the center of Huaraz, but you can go by van, bus or taxi (about 5 soles). It's closer to some hiking routes than the center.
But the best of all is the attention they give us. They give a lot of information about what you can do in the city, provide food for the hike, and even tips of how to make the dogs go away!
They woke up really early to make our breakfast (which, by the way, is delicious) the day we went out for Laguna 69, at 6am. Maruja and Gilf also took care of my boyfriend when he hurt his head and got fever.
We had an excellent stay specially because we got to know them and their son, so we could know more about the city and the life people have there.
Definitely recommend it!!!!!

My husband and I chose to stay at La Casa de Maruja based on a friend's recommendation and we were very happy with our experience. Gilf was waiting for us at the bus station when we arrived at 6:30 AM, drove us to the B&B and then made us a delicious breakfast. Neither of us speaks Spanish, so we were particularly grateful for Gilf's English skills and willingness to help us plan and schedule tours/hikes during our time in Huaraz. In addition to the amazing hospitality Gilf and his wife Maruja have to offer, the B&B is very comfortable, clean, spacious, safe, and affordable. Our only regret is that we didn't spend more time in Huaraz at this B&B!

Stay at La Casa de Maruja and you will be part of the family - Gilf and his wife Maruja live here with their charming children and run a quiet, spotlessly clean, completely safe and comfortable B&B on the northern edge of Huaraz in the Palmira neighborhood. The location affords great views of Huascaran from the rooftop patio and is an easy taxi or collectivo ride to downtown Huaraz. Each morning Maruja will get you started with a delicious breakfast and will even remind you to wear sunscreen as you head off for the day. Gilf offers helpful suggestions for sight-seeing or day hikes; he also owns Colonia Adventures and can organize any sort of trekking, sightseeing or mountaineering adventure you have in mind. He emphasizes *living wages* for the people who work for him, *humane treatment* of pack animals and *stewardship* of the environment. We did a 9 day trek in the Cordillera Blanca; we trusted Gilf to plan everything for us. Thanks to him and his team, we had an amazing experience. Our talented cook, Martin, kept us fat and happy, our hard-working arriero, Carasco, kept our gear moving forward and our fun, informative guide, Ricardo, provided us with a week of good views, good conversation and good laughs. He did more than merely guide us along the trails - we did interesting side-trips, learned about local flora and fauna, history and geology of the area, and gained valuable insight into the lives of the local people. Whatever you have in mind, Gilf and Maruja will make your trip an ideal experience.

My husband and I booked our Santa Cruz trek through Gilf and Colonia Climb through the reviews we read on TripAdvisor. While it was more expensive than some of the trekking companies advertised in huaraz, we are so glad we made that decision. Our guide was great, the food was delicious and the gear was top notch. We had a great experience.

We also stayed in La Casa de Maruja after the trek. The breakfast was great and they let us use the room until we left for our bus at 9 pm, which was super nice.

Definitely book your treks and stay with Gilf and Maruja!
