Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a great lodge run by a wonderful couple, Esperanza and Zacharias. It is a clean, comfortable lodge with spectacular views. It is very reasonably priced. The home cooked meals are terrific. Yanama is a three and a half hour ride over a rough road from Yungay but more than worth it. The road goes through a national park, the heart of the Cordillera Blanca, with incredible mountain scenery. The town of Yanama has at most two thousand residents. It's a sleepy and very friendly little town. There are plenty of scenic day hikes in the area. We stayed two nights and did not see another tourist while we were there. Internet and phone service are hard to come by, if that's important to you. Highly recommend a visit to Yanama and a stay at the Andes Peru Lodge. Really great.

My friend and I spent twelve nights at the very friendly and hospitable Andes Lodge Peru. The beds were very comfortable.
Yanama sees very few tourists and has a lot of hiking opportunities in the vicinity including some demanding ones. It is easy to arrange day hikes as well - choose a lake, tree or a church and start hiking for all day and return to the Andes Lodge Peru for a fantastically relaxing and tasteful, homemade dinner. It was also a great plus to talk with the family - we could talk with them about everything.
We can only recommend people to spend a lot of time at this place and in this village - and we look forward to returning to Yanama. We had planned to stay for 4 days but ended up with 12.

Most independant people walking the famous Santa Cruz trail should not leave immediatly from Vaqueria at the end of the trek towards the splurges of Huaraz. In stead of escaping the beautiful mountains, you should continue your trek for a couple of hours more towards the little, tranquil village of Yanama down the valley. You could easily spend a couple of days in and around Yanama. Lot's of walks around, also towards pre-Colombian ruins and to a new mountain hut on the Contrahierbas mountain.

You will find a mountain village untouched by tourism and friendly people with uninterupted vistas towards the coridllera. The Andes Lodge Peru would be your post-trek retreat. This very nice and comfortable guesthouse, run by a sympathetic Peruvian family.

Incredible, neat rooms with sweeping mountain views. Hot showers (even better ones then in most places in Huaraz). Great breakfast and yummi diner available. Don't forget to buy a beer and head towards the roof terrace's beach chairs for the perfect post-trek pastimes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Andes Lodge Peru, which is located in Yanama on the east side of the Cordillera Blanca. Yanama is a spectacular but bone jarring 4-hour drive from Huarez across a 4800 meter pass, so it sees a lot fewer visitors than towns on the west side. Andes Lodge Peru is run by an incredibly kind and sweet Peruvian couple who really go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Our room was amazing; it was huge, with panoramic views of the mountains, and I still dream about the king sized bed with its down comforter! Breakfast was the typical 'continental' style served in most Peruvian hotels, with bread rolls, fruit and tea or coffee. Dinners were very good and generally included three full courses. There were lots of options for day hikes from the lodge, and at 3400 meters elevation this is a good place to acclimatize before heading into the mountains. It's also just 20 minutes from Vaquiria, the starting point for the Cedros-Alpamayo and Santa Cruz treks. It's worth noting that unlike some other mountain lodges, this one is in town. The pictures on the website are a wee bit misleading in this respect. Since it's in town, you get all the usual Peruvian town noises; dogs barking, chickens squawking, horns blaring etc., although it does quieten down after 11pm! Overall though, a great place to spend a few days either before or after a trek, or as part of an exploration of the east side of the Cordillera Blanca.

Andes Lodge in Yanama is a lovely guesthouse which is clean, bright and well located in the village. The views of Contrahierbas mountain are fantastic and there are some amazing walking options right from the door. Yanama is very peaceful and is a good option for any mountain lovers though the journey from Yungay is quite long (but very beautiful).

However, the best thing about Andes Lodge is the owners. I do not speak much Spanish but they still managed to make us feel very much at home. The food prepared at the lodge is excellent. Home made, healthy and hearty meals with a mix of traditional Andean dishes and more European influenced options. Meanwhile, they constantly helped us with advice, ideas and just general conversation. As such, we felt very well looked after and really enjoyed our stay.

Andes Lodge Peru is situated in the tiny Andean village of Yanama, which sees very few tourists and is therefore authentic. The lodge is run by a very friendly Peruvian family and offers clean, modern rooms, great bathrooms with plenty of hot water, and delicious home cooked meals. There are numerous opportunities for walks in the area, around the village, to ruins or inside the Huascaran National Park (to the Ulta lakes for example). The views of the Cordillera Blanca from the terrace are to die for, especially at sunrise. This is a real gem of a place in the most unexpected of places. Stop here before or after doing the Santa Cruz trek, as Yanama is only a 30 minutes drive from Vaqueria.

We spend 21 days in the region of Huaraz, Yungay, Caraz, Yanama and Chavin. When we arrived in Yanama we found the surprise of our trip. A real little Peru village with no tourist and with incredible mountains and Inca scenaries to see and visit. The road from Yungay to Yanama is not easy to do (3.5 hours by bus) but Yanama is a real gem to see and live.

The Andes Lodge Peru was an oasis for us simply because after walking for days in the mountains and arriving in a room were a king size bed and a double bath with all the hot water in the world and taking a glass of wine on the roof of of the hotel was a real treat.

We were treated like family and I am recommending to anyone to go. (Jean from Montréal Canada)

Wonderful place! We stayed for 3 nights and would easily have stayed longer if we had the time. The hosts are absolutely lovely and made the effort to chat to us over dinner and helped us plan our treks, drawing maps for us and pointing us in the right direction. My Spanish isn't brilliant but they made such an effort to understand me and my husband and made us feel like old friends. I'm sure if you don't speak any Spanish it would still be fine to communicate - they are super friendly.

Room was lovely and big, with hot water, towels, shampoo and a comfy bed. Cleaned daily. Amazing views of the mountains and some pigs, sheep and goats! Lovely and quiet when we were there so had a great night's sleep. Little roof terrace, too for sitting on with a drink. Food each night (included) was brilliant - italian, peruvian... and always enough for us (sometimes too much for us but very tasty!). Breakfast was plentiful with fresh coffee, juice, fruit, granola and bread - best we've had in Peru. Little guinea pigs in the back garden as with many traditional homes (ready for cooking!).

It works as both a guest house and a homestay - you could keep to yourselves and just do the treks and relax a bit, or you could chat to the owners and get some great insight into Peruvian life. We did the latter and came away with an amazing experience. There are some excellent walks up mountains from the doorstep and the town itself is set in such a beautiful location. We were the only tourists in the village when we were there and it felt pretty special - everyone in the village says hello and is keen to help.

You can get to Yanama by combi from Yungay for 15 soles (combis run to Yungay from Huaraz in the morning for 5 soles, very easy), and the journey is an experience itself - over a really high mountain pass and past the Llanganuco lakes and start of the Laguna 69 trek. Very bumpy so be prepared! Best way to get back is to find a taxi from the village to Yungay - we paid to stop to do the Laguna 69 trek on our way back.

Recommend this place hugely - we've been in Cusco and surrounds since and still think Yanama/Andes lodge was the most unique experience we've had. Thank you for such a lovely stay!!

Yanama is a small, rural village in the Callejón de Conchucos, in the Cordillera Blanca. It was a nice surprise to find a comfortable accomodation in such a little town.
Our room was bright and very clean and had lovely views of to the snow caped mountains.
Esperanza, Sacarias and their family are very kind and make you feel like staying at home.
The only point of improvement is the hot water shower, which was not really warm either in the evening when we arrived nor next morning. This was fixed the second day of our stay, but we think, this could have been fixed prior to our arrival.
Meals are offered at an extra fee. They are fine, but a bit overpriced.

I stayed here recently with some friends and had such a good time that I wanted to recommend it to others. It´s a new place set in a small village outside Peru called Yanama. It´s off the beaten track but is great for anyone who wants to see an untouristed Andean village. We were the only tourists there! The village is very traditional so you hear lots of the locals speaking Quechua and most of the ladies wear the traditional dress.

Another plus is that to get there you go through the Huascaran National Park so get to see the Llanganuco Lakes on the way plus all the mountains in the park. The lodge is managed by a young Peruvian guy who is really friendly and knowledgeable about the area as he grew up in the village where the lodge is located.

We did some walking around the lodge and the countryside there is beautiful - we went to some nearby lakes and ruins. It´s close to the Huascaran National Park for trekking there but we didn´t have time although we plan to go back.

The hostel is really good quality and the food (included in the price) is all home-cooked and very good. It has great beds with duvets and 24 hot water that is really hot, not just tepid! Definitely worth a visit if you want to see a real Andean village that the tourists haven´t discovered yet!
