Lonely Planet review
This immensely popular family-run hostel continues to win the top budget-choice accolade. Immaculate and comfortable rooms share cushy, colorful lounging areas on every floor. The building is topped by a massive, fireplace-warmed lounge space with magnificent 180-degree views of the Cordillera. If that isn’t enough, the affable Quirós family, especially the heir to this tourism throne, Juan, are consummate hosts and offer a cafe and bar, communal kitchen and a travel office that rents out trekking gear and arranges Spanish lessons. It’s so popular, a new, equally homey annex, Churup II, has opened a block over on Arguedas. Reservations essential.
Our independent authors have visited Albergue Churup and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Huaraz.
