It's right on the Plaza de Armas. The hosts Kathy and David were very friendly too. Rooms were nice n spacy, clean. There were plenty of cats around. So, if u don't like cats find another place. The WiFi was OK. Left very early in the morning for MP, so can't comment on breakfast. I would be pleased of they... More

Given the price you would expect a little more cleanliness. Or somewhat decent beds. Or an eatable breakfast. Maybe clean showers. But no. Unfortunately, they didn't provide any of these things. The shower in my room was filled with bugs, the mattress in my bed really worn out, and the coffee that accompanied the meager breakfast was the worst I've... More

Kathy and her cats will welcome you to this very pleasant hostal on the main square in Ollantaytambo. Adorable hostess who speaks excellent English and will give you the best possible tips to visit the region without unduly spending your cash. Functional rooms and nice TV lounge. A very good address.

It is a pity that this hostel is run by such unwelcoming staff. The girl that opened the door for us could not find our reservations, and by the look on her face, we were a bother rather than paying customers.I could see we were not on the book. Not a problem, since there was plenty of rooms available. The... More

place is clean and comfortable, rooms are nice but tiny, host is very nice and informative, In general if you're just looking for a place to spend the night in low budget this fits right for you, it's around 10$ pax with continental breakfast included

Chaska Wasi sure has character, mostly from the owner, Kathy, who is super friendly and full of information, she just really likes to hang out with and talk to her guests! We had a double room with a private bath and it was a great value! Nice common area and a roof terrace, all right on the plaza in Ollantaytambo.... More
