Our family (ages ranging from 24-56) took a trip with KB Tambo and had an absolute blast. The activities were well organized and offered spectacular panoramic views as well as insights into the history of the various archaeological sites. KB and his team went over and above to make sure we were comfortable throughout the entire trip. I would not... More

We didn't actually sleep in KB, because they were full at that time, but they helped us organize our stay at another hotel, for a slightly cheaper price. We did hire the taxi tour through Sacred Valley with them. Everything was good, private car, driver drop us off the site and he waited for us, as long as it took... More

The "worth visiting" point about this hostal for me is the patio in the front. It turns out there are not many outdoor spaces to sit down, rest, read, chat, etc with just the shade from trees (take the sun or go inside are the options - the sun bites, btw). This is a very basic and clean hostal with... More

I was there in May of 2013 for the Inca Avalanche and had the luxury of staying in the KB Tambo Hotel after long days of Hiking & Biking with KB Tambo Tours. The Restaurant was amazing, my Room was VERY comfortable and quiet so that I could get a great nights sleep all 10 nights!!! The service was excellent... More

We arranged our entire trip in Peru (end Oct 2013) through a tour group, Magical Cuzco Tours, months before we departed. As we were interested in biking during our time in Cuzco, we were attracted to separately arrange a biking trip with KB Tambo as we were convinced that Abra Malaga will offer a thrilling ride. At the time of... More

We stayed twice at KB Tambo for 2 nights on each stay, the first time in August and the second time a month later with my father-in-law. Both stays were very comfortable, the views from the second floor rooms are fantastic, and breakfasts were really good. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

KB gave me a great adventure experience. The Hotel is extremely cool and the breakfasts are much more than you would expect for a free breakfast. The adventure part of it was even better, with great camp food and guides that are very chill and don't boss you around. I would recommend booking with KB for anyone who wants a... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in - great quality rooms, delicious breakfast, helpful staff who gave me recommendations for nice restaurants and dealing with altitude sickness, and the owner KB knows everything about the area and was really helpful and friendly. I had a great time!

This charming little Hostal is more boutique hotel than hostel so don't be fooled by the name, this is not a backpackers. The rooms are decent sized with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. The views are of the ruins and the beautiful little gardens. The breakfast is adequate and the staff very very helpful. Overall we were very very happy... More

Stayed here with my wife for two nights while we visited Machu Picchu. Like the rest of the town the hotel had great views of Incan ruins along the surrounding hillsides. The room however left some things to be desired. And some things I guess one has to take with the territory as Ollanta is really in the middle of... More
