Lovely hostal on the edge of town with a great family team running the place. We had trouble crossing the border so called to let them know we'd miss our first night booking and they were very kind and understanding and didn't charge us for this. Lovely orientation talk from the great roof terrace when we arrived and a nice...

We really enjoyed our stay in this hostel. We went there twice in february and it was both times great. The staff is exceptionally friendly and explains everything on a map. The rooms are clean, big and with some you can even sit on the terrasse in front of the room.

We stayed at Hostal Chasqui for 2 nights at the end of January 2014. The staff were friendly and responsive. Our private room had a double and single bed, TV, DVDs, bathroom and private balcony (with stunning views of the town and mountains surrounding, especially at sunset). The room was quite chilly in the evening as there is no heating,...

Hostel chasqui has a great location, a few minutes walk from the main plaza, and the rooms and balconies have beautiful views across the town and the surrounding mountains. Milton and Roberto, the owners, were so kind and welcoming, and the level of helpful tourist information that they provided on arrival, alongside a detailed map surpassed that of any other...

The GOOD : We arrived to Chasqui with such a warm welcome and were given an ensuite room with a TV and DVD player! The rooms were comfy and upon arrival we were given all necessary information such as tourist spots and good restaurants. They even do laundry for free which is brilliant! They have hundreds of DVDs and when...
