The family that owns this wonderful little hostel were friendly. The rooms were clean, a bit small, but everything you needed. The showers were hot no issues there, but the bed was slightly hard. Still had a good sleep before heading into Colca Canyon. The family also stored our extra baggage while we were gone. Such a great service to offer! A part of the building, like so many others, was partly finished and looked like a second floor would be added. I would stay there again. Thank you Rumi Wasi!

We stayed here for about 4 nights whilst exploring the Colca area and Chivay. Parking was secure, the owners were friendly and very helpful, breakfast was included, showers were warm (sometimes hot) and the main square was a short walk. There was also hot water and tea/coffee available in the evenings which was great. The only downsides were that the rooms were very cold with no heating, but they gave us hot water bottles at night which was lovely. The other thing was the tourist bus that stopped there for breakfast; the passengers were noisy especially when using the bathrooms and slamming doors, and they have no consideration for the fact that people are still sleeping in the Hostal. Overall though I would recommend this place especially if you need parking.

This place was very simple to walk to. It was a away from the stores and restaurants so it was quieter. The staff was great. Very accommodating. The best part was they brought everyone an old fashioned hot water bottle right before bed. It stayed warm for a very long time. Since there’s no heater and it was pretty cold this was a great bonus!

We stayed at the Rumi Wasi for just one night and found a friendly and welcome place to stay. Hot showers. WiFi and a good bed are all present. Breakfast is very good and served in a 'hall' that would make Harry Potter's Hogwarts envious.
