Stayed here for 5 nights and were very impressed and surprised Samichay is classed as a hostel. All areas clean, constant hot water, plentiful and varied breakfast, hot drinks available all day, on site kitchen ( we did not use), good wifi throughout. Host friendly and helpful - arranged Machu Picchu trip for us and got up to prepare 3.00...

We requested hotel transportation in advance and it was very convenient to have a driver at the airport that did not charge us an arm and a leg. The location is within walking distance to Plaza de Arms and all other tourist sites in Cusco. The building, rooms, beds and bathrooms were clean the entirety of our stay. The employees...

Rooms were comfortable and staff help was outstanding. It is within easy walking distance of restaurants and not too far from the main square and the historical centre. The breakfast was plentiful and good. We were able to leave our luggage in storage while we went off to hike the Inca Trail and during our trip to Manu National Park....

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is served, not buffet style. It is good food and coffee. We were there 5 nights between excursions to Inca trail and Manu. If you are looking for really helpful people to look after you and a homely base to arrive back to, this place is perfect. Guido (accompanied by his mischievous...

I originally booked for four nights. The check-in was great and the staff are extremely helpful. The room was comfortable and clean and wifi was good too. But the walls and windows let in every single sound from the road and from other rooms, so it was hard to sleep. I left after one night

We were there just the last night before leaving the city. The hotel is not far away from the touristic area (5 Soles by taxi) and also is close to the airport. Breakfast was good: Coffee, orange juice, French toast, cheese sandwich, and jam. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet. The desk guy was nice.

Samichay was our home away from home in Cusco. There are only 6 rooms, breakfast is excellent (eggs, juice, breads, cheese sandwiches, coffee), wifi is very fast - the best we've encountered in Peru, and there is parking available. Guido and the others who run Samichay are very kind and helpful, and their parrot and kitten add to the homey...
