Samay Wasi was such a pleasant experience. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, going out of their way to attend to our and other guests' requests. The rooms are small but clean and cozy. The hot water was fully functional and such a treat after 4 days on the Inca trail. Another few bonuses were the free airport pick...

For our 3 nights stay in October we could not have found a better and spectacularly situated place. The staff were absolutely fabulous - cheerful, friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good and for a few Soles extra there was a choice of various warm dishes - well worth it. The view from the terrace (with tables and seats) over...

I feel we are well placed to review Samay Wasi having stayed in 4 different rooms (twin, double and 2 of their deluxe doubles), due to our unorganisation and their popularity. One thing worth mentioning is that the deluxe rooms are the only ones to come with a heater, cable tv and a more substantial breakfast, so are worth the...

Stayed with Samay Wasi for 4 nights before our excursion. We had another hostel booked for our return days but we cancelled and arranged for us to stay with Samay Wasi upon return. They were so helpful and welcoming, I couldn't imagine staying elsewhere! They fed us, laundered our clothes at all hours, and made sure our room was immaculate!...

We stayed eight nights in this hostel and always felt very welcome. Although the rooms are a bit cold (you won't find a place in Cusco where they aren't) you will find everything you need (hot showers, comfortable beds, free coca tea). For breakfast you get bread and marmelade. If you stay in the superior room you even get eggs...
