Gustavo is the friendliest, most easygoing hostel owner we have encountered in Peru. He made us feel at home here right away. Our three kids enjoyed the climbing wall especially. The vibe is very laid back and low key.

The owner Gustavo is a great guy willing to share advice about the surroundings and his secret pizza sauce receipt. There a climbing wall out back and plenty of the people staying here love to climb so if your traveling alone theres no problem making friends to do some bouldering in the area or sharing a ride out to Hatunmachay for some sport climbing. Be aware of your food around Harriet he loves to eat :)

We arrived in Huaraz Monday morning, too early. The bus pulled in at 4:30 am and a taxi driver grabbed us, knew how to get us to the hostel where we had reserved rooms, Monkeywasi, and was as helpful and friendly as can be, besides the fact that he charged us double the going rate for the short ride from the terminal to the hostel. I …

... to the road as we made our way down a slippery path through adobe house villages. There were local people, in traditional clothing, going about their daily lives. Some were farming and moving their livestock while others were harvesting wheat with donkeys.

We took a colectivo back to town and we got a bit of a guided tour from our guide as he led us back to the start point. We walked past the market and had a good ceviche restaurant pointed out to us.

... beat the crowds to the museum.

The museum was pretty good but then it has most of the stuff from the site, though there are a couple of replicas of the few items left on site – photos are not permitted unfortunately.

Was 7.30 and dark by the time we’d eventually retraced our steps over the rapidly disintegrating slopes and rubble covered road, even more perilous now after the heavy ...

It's been a while since we have had to negotiate local transport, but it seemed so easy. Stand on the edge of the road and flag down a minibus (Collectivo) going in the direction of the main town, any that pass are going to get you near to the main square. Just tell them you want the main square, pay (17p each) and they will tell you when to get out. After a few days of doing this we decided that we would get a collectivo back, rather ...

... from his rope when he and his climbing partner suffered a fall during a descent of Siula Grade and his partner mistook him to be dead on the rope. Good book, Touching the Void!

Obviously you need experience to climb peaks like those so we opted for the Santa Cruz trek which we were conveniently able to book through our hostel the second we arrived for 6am the next morning. They assured us that we would be fine with ...
