Stayed here for a night passing through. Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful view of inca ruins from our room. Hot water. Great breakfast included with the stay. Breakfast included breads, eggs, jams, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. The coffee was amazing. Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Great value.

This place was a gem. Not fancy, but more than basic. The room was compact, but very comfortable. Everything worked - the bathroom even had instructions on how to turn the taps for the hot water. Breakfast was buffet style, and had plenty of variety. The restaurant is not closed to the outside air, so a little nippy when eating... More

We regret not having booked here when we first arrived in Ollantaytambo. We stayed in another hostal which was not very good. We managed to stay here for one night in April 2015. We had the room at the end of the garden. The view was fantastic, and the room was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and could... More

We stayed twin bed room for 5 nights. It's a lovely place, not big but enough space to put our stuff on a shelf. Breakfast served pancakes, scrambled eggs, cereals, bread, juice, hot coffee and milk, simple but we enjoyed them.15~20 mins to the train station by walk with luggage. wifi was accessible in the room but not very fast....

The twin room was small but inviting. The shower was great. The needs were warm. Outside the room, there is a patio with a nice view. But there are probably nice views anywhere in Ollanta. The staff was very helpful with travel tips, site tips and they stored out luggage for an entire day after we checked out while we... More

Clean, hot water, friendly stuff, close to the center, buffet breakfast, wifi, what more to ask? From the pictures though I had an impression that I would have a balcony or a terrace to myself. What looks like a terrace is actually a path to other rooms. So if you have windows open to enjoy the views, other travelers will... More

This was our favorite hostel we stayed in during our travels in Peru. We walked the short distance (less than a km) from the train station, and found this oasis with gorgeous gardens and views of the town. Germano checked us in and showed us to our room, which was more of a private bungalow with a little porch. It... More

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Hostal Iskay. Our room was lovely, and we appreciated sitting in the garden with a view of the ruins. I had corresponded with Sabrina prior to our stay, and she's a gem - so pleasant and very service oriented. Breakfast was fine, although I didn't care for the coffee. I'd definitely... More

We stayed at the Hostal Iskay and can't say enough about our stay. The hotel was clean, quiet and in a great location right in the center with everything (ruins, restaurants, hiking, etc.) all within 5 min. Breakfast was also provided and had everything we needed. The real highlight for us was how helpful the people were at Hostal Iksay.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved its relaxed but efficient atmosphere. It is in an excellent location, within walking distance for everything in Ollanta and has lovely views and gardens/terrace. The staff were really helpful organising taxis etc. We did come across an issue but this was sorted out efficiently and professionally by Sabrina. Ollanta was our favourite... More
