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

Decent hostel in the small town of Ollantaytambo.. You could tell that there was no real effort put into the place considering there is a flat screen in the main lobby but not a mirror in the dorm bathroom and bad decorations.. I found the beds to be extremely uncomfortable, but I was only there for one night and that... More

It's a basic hostel, but the prices are accordingly. The owner is very friendly and engaged with the community, you can leave rice or sugar, she will take care that people who need it will get it. When i had fever and headache, she accompanied me to a local doctor and translated everything. Location is perfect, on the plaza de... More

We stayed in this hostal for two nights. Both nights provided a good nights sleep (apart from our snoring companion in the 4 bed dorm) and the place was very clean and tidy. We were allowed to bring our motorbike into the courtyard which was great. My only question is to the owners rather strange rules, no wifi before 8am... More
