Hostel chasqui has a great location, a few minutes walk from the main plaza, and the rooms and balconies have beautiful views across the town and the surrounding mountains. Milton and Roberto, the owners, were so kind and welcoming, and the level of helpful tourist information that they provided on arrival, alongside a detailed map surpassed that of any other...

We had a pleasant stay at Hostal Chasqui but this was mainly down to the staff. When we arrived Milton gave us a tour, a map and loads of information about the town and excursions that we could do. Both he and Roberto were always friendly and tried to fix things straight away for us. We had a double room...

After a 15 hour bus journey over the colombian border, I really could care less what the hostel was like as long as it had a bed- Hostel Chasqui was SUCH a welcome sight!
