Exceptional 10.0
Central but tranquil
Kind, friendly staff, everyrhing was organized and exaxtly as promised. I was collected fron the airport, the breakfast was excellent and the views from my room were stunning. The capacity to sit outside( with the nice cat Bigotes) was another bonus. The choice of good cheap reataurants nearby was wonderful and the location perfect - really central but absolutely quiet and tranquil. I even saw hummingbirds from the roof terrace. I would return to this hostel and would recommend it to anyone fit enough to stay in San Blas.

Lovely place, great view of cusco
Our 5 night in Samay Wasi was just great. We got really confortable there. It is a bit up the stairs to reach but it was a good exercise for us after all the eating :) Paulina who does cooking, cleaning, morning breakfast was so nice and kind. She cooked with us in the common kitchen. We had a double delux room with private bathroom which was clean and comfortable, can be cleaned upon request. Probably the best shower we’ve had so far with good pressure hot water. It’s a no fuss hostel. Highlight is the view of Cusco as we’re a bit uphill
