Hostal Cusi Wasi helped me so much while trying to plan my trip to Peru from China, it wasn't easy to get information and they where able to give great advise and help me to organise our trip to Machu Picchu, they even phoned airlines for me to try and find out about visas etc. The hostal itself wasn't the prettiest or newest place, but it had character and for the price we paid it was great value, but I think with some new touches and some upgrades here and there, this can go from a good hostel to a great hostel. Cusco can easily get very booked out(the days before groups leave for the different treks), so make sure you try and book a place in advance, on our return to Cusco after our trip to Machu Picchu we couldn't get space anywhere and ended up staying in a really horrible place. The location of Cusi Wasi was a bit out from the main square, but walkable distance. Cusi Wasi even served us breakfast at 5 in the morning before our train left for Machu Picchu, and their coffee was excellent. If you are willing to pay a bit more, there are many places closer to the main square and if you are looking for something upmarket and newer, Cusi Wasi is maybe not for you. We had an amazing time in Cusco and ate some of the best meals on our trip in Cusco, there are so many amazing restaurants to choose from. So just remember, there are loads to do and see in Cusco and you will maybe not be at the hotel too much, so if you like good food and wine, rather save on the hotel. Thanks Cusi Wasi for all your help.
