We stayed at Hostal Chasqui for 2 nights at the end of January 2014. The staff were friendly and responsive.

The room was quite chilly in the evening as there is no heating,...

We had a pleasant stay at Hostal Chasqui but this was mainly down to the staff. When we arrived Milton gave us a tour, a map and loads of information about the town and excursions that we could do.
