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.

We enjoyed our stay here, the guys are very hospital and nice. They make you feel welcome and they will help you with any question for example driving you in the guys tuktuk to Huacachina 🥳
The room was simple but neat. The rooftop has a nice view.
When arrived they guided the area on a map 👍

Really loved this hostel. The brothers were great hosts and made sure I felt comfortable from the moment I arrived. The shared rooms are spacious with a female and male restrooms in the rooms. Bed was nice and comfy. My favorite part was the terrace which offered an amazing view and a go to chill spot. The complimentary water and tea were a nice touch. I would definitely return and recommend to anyone traveling to Ica.

Ica Wasi is an awesome place to relax, meet great people and use as a base to see the sights in the area. It was so good that I ended up staying a night longer than I'd planned.

I visited Huacachina and the local bodegas (wineries)! The owner, Yoship, was exceptionally kind and helpful, with all kinds of useful tips and options for seeing the sights no matter what your budget.

I would strongly recommend staying here if you're planning to visit Ica!

+Very friendly guy running the family hostel, willing to help you with anything you might need. Kitchen on a Terrance Is a cool meeting point with other travellers and he makes sure you feel comfortable from the very first moment.All clean and comfy. Would definitely stay again. Very close to Cruz Del Sur bus stop.
- if you stay in a dorm just under the terrace, it can get quite noisy from people having early breakfast or late party And you Wanna sleep. Plus Ica Is not the nicest town in the world And quite dead these days, not much to do there. Only Huacachina Is the Reason.

I booked my stay on Hostelworld just 5 mins before checking in and there were no issues at all - they were expecting me.
Upon arrival, despite it being so late, Joship was extremely helpful and took a considerable amount of time to write down all possible locations of interest within Ica and beyond; including how to get to Lima, Nazca, Cusco etc. The map even includes typical foods and drinks to try.
Joship was extremely helpful throughout my stay!! 110% effort.

I stayed for a night after initially intending to stay two at Ica Wasi. At first I found the hostel very clean and the owners welcoming. However, we had a really uncomfortable experience the same evening.

The guests were told there would be a birthday party with food that we were invited to. It sounded like a great opportunity to get to know locals so four girls and two other Mexican men went. Instead of a party however we were brought to a pisco bar where the host was quite pushy about making us drink pisco. We were then brought to a bar, and were told to just relax even after expressing that we didn't like it. I personally felt harassed by the owner who kept trying to dance with me, and at 6am woke the girls in our dorm up by calling our names and laughing when we woke up. The birthday party didn't happen and we weren't told anything about it except at 1am when we were flippantly told it was cancelled. Loud music was also playing when we got back despite the fact that other guests were trying to sleep. I left a night early, and felt genuinely scared at the thought of spending another night, especially when the other girls in my dorm were leaving.

Reading all the good reviews yet hearing all the negative reviews from other travellers I've met on the road (agreeing with the weird vibe of the place and the loud irreverent music), I'm really surprised and slightly confused. I'd rather forget my time at Ica Wasi to be honest. I find it very ironic that as a solo female traveller in Peru the one time I felt unsafe was in a hostel, because of its owner. If you're a woman and travelling alone do yourself a favour and stay away. Just spend a night in Ica or make Huacachina a day trip.

Clean, comfortable, affordable accommodation, good location in ica. After booking on hostel world had an email from giancarlo asking for bus information so he could meet us at cruz del sur and walk with us back to hostel, very good service especially being only our 2nd night in Peru. Also booked an excursion for us the afternoon we arrived so we made the most of our stay. When we left asked for directions to oltursa bus station and he took us there, was great as we would never have found it otherwise!
