New in 2017, Qapaq Raymi has a friendly, laid-back vibe. Guests feel right at home in this art-filled converted house, complete with well-equipped kitchen, lounge (where you can watch films, or borrow the guitar), comfy guestrooms, and back patio – a great spot for barbecues and meeting other travelers.

The hostel has loads of tips on exploring the region and arranges tours, and has a strong green ethos, with recycling, composting and repurposed furniture (including bed frames made from upcycled wooden pallets).
