My daughter and I stayed in Cusi Wasi for one week in October 2013. The room was small but adequate and clean, the beds were very comfortable. We asked about the hot water, and were informed that it must be opened for a couple minutes before it warms up. There was always plenty ot water for taking a shower. It is not the place to chose if you want to sleep late in the morning, because many people are up early to leave for tours. The hotel has a very cozy, home-like feel to it, and from the first moment we felt very welcome and safe there, and the staff is definitely a big part of it.
The airport pick-up, the friendly, smiling staff and the home-cooked breakfast in the morning all made for a wonderful experience that helped make our visit in Cusco memorable. Our tour to Machu Pichu and to the sacred valley were wonderful and very well planned by Cusi Wasi.
We were very satisfied by our stay in this hostal, which is a short walk down to the main plaza. At night we chose to take a taxi back up (4 soles) because we were not accustomed to the altitude. I would definitely stay here again if I go back to Cusco. Hopefully the construction on the street (Arcopata) will be finished soon, as this creates a bit of a problem for vehicles to reach the hostal, because the side street Fiero is a one-way and therefore the taxi must back down all the way after dropping people off.
