We spent a week at Kuntur Wasi, and quickly realised it was in a great location for exploring the fascinating cobbled streets of San Blas. It's around a 10 minute pleasant walk to Plaza Armas, but a bit of a climb back uphill (which was not a problem for us )
We had a double room ensuite with a fantastic view over the city. Not all rooms have outside windows though so it's worth asking for a room with a view if you can.
The downside was that our room was permanently much colder than the main hall. That said, the beds come with plenty of blankets and were very cosy.
Rooms are cleaned daily and the whole place is spotless.
There is a small kitchen in the hostel you can use for a cost of 5 Soles however it's not very well set up for guest use.
Inclusive breakfast consists of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, bread, jam, and often eggs or frankfurters, along with juice and hot beverages including coca tea leaves.
The Laundry service is good and is only 4 Soles per kilo.
The staff at Kuntur Wasi are friendly and helpful, though they have virtually no English, they were very patient with our broken Spanish.
This is a comfortable & friendly budget option, in a nice location with a lot a San Blas cafés and attractions on its doorstep.
