“Located in the world’s second highest mountain range – the Cordillera Blanca – is Churup Guest House. A place of spectacular views and cosy fireside hangouts.”
Churup Guesthouse: Huaraz, Peru
What makes Churup Guesthouse unique?
Incredible Mountain Views: Curling up next to the fire with a warm cup of tea and a good book would be reason enough to get excited, but glance up from your copy of “Touching the Void” (Joe Simpson’s life-threatening account of hiking the Peruvian mountains) and you’re staring at the second highest snow-capped mountain peaks in the world.
Hearty Breakfast’s Perfect for Trekkers: A stocked breakfast bar of unlimited daily roasted coffee, fresh fruit juice, delectable rolls, plus hot made to order options – we’re talking pancakes with chocolate sauce! If the mountains are calling early there are even to go boxed breakfasts and lunches to take with you while you hike.
Cosy Environment: Cozy is not necessarily a word often associated with hostels, but Churup is an exception. Carpeted floors, beds with puffy duvets, throw pillows atop comfy corner chairs, make this a place almost as relaxing as home.
Affordable Private Rooms: The social life of hostel worlds is wonderful but everyone needs a break once and a while from being chatty. At Churup Guest House rooms with private bathrooms (complete with hot power showers) and plush double or twin beds are accessible to backpackers still sticking to a budget.
Plenty of Space: If you do opt for a dorm there are still plenty of places for private Skype chats and a little bit of solitude. Two living rooms, a rooftop terrace, a private television room, a sunny courtyard, plus sitting areas on each of the buildings four floors.
Location: Jr. Amadeo Figueroa # 1257. La Soledad – Huaraz, Peru
