Gorgeous views. Big, clean rooms. Lots of blankets. Hot water. Delicious coffee in the mornings. Very safe area. What makes this hostel extra great is the staff. They are so kind and helpful, going that extra mile to accommodate you. They even phoned the tour company we were going with that day because they hadn't showed up in the morning....

The hostel is a bit far from down town. Rooms are cold and dark, but clean. You can enjoy lot of blankets....... BUT!!! : The above mentioned James is a tricky cowboy. He'll try to sell you a trip to Machu Picchu on a price higher than most of the tourist agencies in the town. You must have in mind...

This was fantastic, I have been in South America for nearly a year and this is the best, friendliest, most comfortable, cleanest, and most welcoming hostel I have stayed in. All the staff were super friendly and very helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

We picked the place b/c we needed an airport pick-up (which is included) and we wanted to relax our first few nights in Cusco with a big room and cable tv. All was as expected!

Samay Wasi is an excellent hostel if you want to be out of the city center and if you like a nice and comfortable place to stay. It's a beautyful place with good vibes and friendy staff. The view over the town is beautyful and the rooms are sunny and comfortable.
