Warning of a well organized Scam!! If you travel with Cruz del Sur to Huaraz, you will be attacked as soon as you get off the bus. These people appear to work for Cruz del Sur but they are not! They pay high fees to be allowed to scam in their bus terminal. These people get paid commission for every night you stay in one of the hostels listed in their brochure
They will also try to sell you overpriced tours and trekkings. This is a well organized scam inside the bus terminal of Cruz del Sur. We don't pay these people so our place is not recommended by them. Instead, our hostel becomes: far away, full, dirty, unfriendly. The latest we have heard was that our hostel is FULL of Israeli, yeah right! Please do not believe any words of these people. They make even fake phone calls to check our (un)availability. Inside the terminal of Cruz del Sur they have parked their car/van which is paid by tourists commission. Don´t get aboard their minibus.
