Hostal Wasichay
Ranked #73 of 517 Speciality Lodging in Cusco
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Dont really understand high rating. Very cramped hostal in noisy area. Avoid weekends when you want to sleep. All night bass. Our room did not have a window to the outside but to the neighbours restroom only (including smell). One of us had to Climb over the other to get to the bathroom and there was no room for two backpacks. Breakfast room incredibly cold. Plus: Fresh fruits at breakfast and Staff very good/Friendly.

Stayed: July 2014
Thank Offies

Highly recommended - very friendly staff, comfortable beds, good hot water showers, clean and tidy rooms, and a decent breakfast. Add in the great location (5 mins walk to Plaza de Armas) - what more do you need?!

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst visiting Cusco and the sacred valley and it met all our needs perfectly and at an unbeatable price. The location is very central, the Plaza de Armas can be reached in a few minutes easy walk yet it's not near a busy street or junction so traffic noise isn't a problem. Our room was big with a double bed and a single, tv, heater, wardrobe....nothing fancy but functional and comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and the water for the shower was hot and fast flowing, often a problem in budget hotels. Breakfast was ample enough to start the day, fruits followed by eggs or cheese with bread, fresh juice, coffee, jam etc etc. The staff were very helpful and friendly and I would certainly stay here again and recommend it.

Room Tip: Our room 304 was at the back of the hotel and very quiet. Perhaps avoid 201 and 202 as they're...

Hostal located close to the Plaza de Armas, 2 blocks away. Nice small rooms with small but clean shower and toilet. Fast wi-fi internet, small tv, small heater, small but good breakfast. If you want to save dollars and you are OK on small places, this small hotel will give you more for the money you pay. The hostal is small, just one front door and then steps to the second floor, and probably the first impression is not the best one, but after our first night, we love it. We decide to stay for the full 4 days that we were in Cuzco.
Save money, enjoy Cuzco and have a beautiful sleep at Hostal Wasichay.

Room Tip: Look for room on the first floor or on the second floor to avoid many steps

Initially I was booked different hostel, but at the last minute the owner send me this hotel.
Pro:
Nice father comforter! ( Other hotels I stayed used heavy triple blankets)
Relatively near from Plaza Armas. That means close to all touristic place.
Breakfast was fairly good.
Staff are nice and friendly.

Con:
Hot water didn't come out for over 15 min. ( boiler wasn't working properly)
Room was cold.
All windows are facing to hall way. ( means you can hear all other guests noise..)
When I came back to hotel at night, ( like 9pm) they locked wooden door. I had to ring door bell to unlock the door...
Surrounding area of the hotel is only for tourists. So the streets are empty all the time. It was a little bit scary....

If I did booked this hotel, I would be more happyer. But this time I was forced to go to this hotel after loooooong bus ride from Puno, AND I called them the afternoon to confirm the other hotel's rsv... So, I wan't super happy to move another hotel.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 weeks in a private double room for 25$USD a night. **absolute bargain for when you're in the heart of cusco and get great service** It had free wifi + laptop w/internet available + free bag storage for when you do tours + cable tv + good security + very clean + newly renovated + breakfast included + free tea and coffee + quiet.

2 enthusiastic thumbs up!! - better than most hotels we have stayed at. (the place looks and feels like a brand new hostel and probably is)
