My boyfriend, Rodrigo, and I absolutely loved every moment of our stay in Samay Wasi. We reserved a private room. The room was clean and included all of the amenities we desired. The service was excellent. Cecilia, the hostel’s manager, is professional, kind, and hardworking – a true reflection of her dedicated staff (Emerson, Andy, Paulina, Patty and Betty –...

We stayed in a private room with an ensuite. This is a hostel - not a luxury hotel. There are plenty of those in Cusco if you're not trying to keep costs down. I am not someone who frequents hostels and would honestly prefer to avoid them. So having said that, I thought the Samay Wasi hostel was a pleasant...

Great hostel. Not too small, not too big. Nice, cozy and clean rooms. Amazing staff. We got picked up from the airport even though we forgot to sent the email saying when we were arriving:) We also got booked the Salkantay trek through a guy named James in the hostel. Although the price of the trek could have been lower...

We really loved our time at Samay Wasi, we stayed for 4 nights, went on the Inca Trail for 3 nights then back to Samay Wasi for a final night before flying to Bolivia. The staff were amazing, they couldn't do enough for us, whether it be advice about things to do or arranging transport, taking care of our belongings...

A very nice hostel with an amazing view from the balcony with a very helpful and kind staff. It is near to San Blas square and tons of shops and restaurants. All of it will make you feel yourself at home. A great option.

Great little hostel. About a 10 min uphill walk from the main plaza ( good trekking training!) and the pay off is great views over the city. San blas area has loads of shops/restaurants too. Breakfast was good. Top floor rooms have the views but we were in room 5 (private room) on ground floor which was great for views...

This was a nice, clean hostel with all the amenities needed (wifi, hot shower, breakfast included). There are cheaper hostels with the same amenities but the view over Cusco set this one apart. I would recommend it for travellers who want somewhere quiet and aren't on a super tight budget.

Please realize that it is a very big up hill climb the last 20 min. walk up then climb more stairs up to the lobby! The taxi driver could not go any further but parked and carried our luggage up that hill and then up the stairs, they were 2 carry on type luggage. We only stayed one night, we...

My only reason for 4 stars is because there was some confusion with the price/charges of our stay, they tried to overcharge us. We booked this hostel for our entire stay in Cusco. We stayed for a few nights, then went on our trek, then came back and stayed a few more nights. If I could go back in time...
