Alausi is a very safe and small town. You can easily walk everywhere in the main town. There are ATMs and lots of restaurants. Two to three days is a good time to explore the town and take the train ride.
Authentic town with cobblestone streets, lots of small restaurants nestled in the mountains. Large indigenous population with artisans and local fare. We were there for the Devils Nose Train ride which did not disappoint. Lots of hiking options for mountain views. Breathtaking scenery.
Alausi is a very peaceful, friendly little town. The focus is the old train parked in town, ready for its regular trips up to El Nariz del Diablo. The streets are all up and down, except for the main treelined boulevard. There are a number of beautifully painted murals around town. We enjoyed grilled meat from the street vendors, as well as a delicious meal in restaurant Tikal. Alausi is a worthwhile destination, even without going on the train.
I spent two nights in Aluasi-- including Sunday, which was "Market Day". It was very un-touristy! Most tourists come just for a day to take the train and leave! The atmosphere in the city is very authentic and exciting! Lots of cheap vegetable, fruit and bread (and other consumer goods) all around the city. The old market and new market are both interesting, and you get a real look at life in the city! The city is very walkable!
El tren was great. It is important to know out of season the train runs only at 11am. The town is very, very quiet. Food is great. Pricey hostels out of season. Taxi service is terrible and they they don't know the town and didn't know where the Community Hostel Alausi is. The train service needs to learn how to charge is other countries funds so you don't get ripped off in service fees and exchange rates.
The setting is striking - there are good walks in several directions that are pretty flat (including the Devil's Nose - nariz del diablo), or as steep as you want! Variety of restaurants serving local and more western dishes, at reasonable prices. There's even the train ride if you don't fancy walking.
