Stayed here three nights...two nights and on return from MP. If to do over would have stayed here the entire time. Note I am a single lady that stayed in a basic room off the lobby...twin bed with table and one chair. No furniture to place clothes. There are a few pegs to hang clothes. There is water in lobby...

We booked this hostal based on the reviews but it disappointed. It looks like the owners slept over the laurels and the place starts to show the tear and wear. The rooms are very small and basic, the washroom is miniscule, the shower is constantly dropping water and the sink has a single faucet that is loose. Breakfast was also... More

They asked us to add an addicional mattress on the floor. I don't know if the others hotels accept this.... The rooms reserved are not suitable to add an addicional mattress... More

This is the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. It felt like a 3 star hotel but for the hostel price. The guy at the front desk was awesome (sorry can't remember his name). The view from the hostel is awesome, looking across the the valley at the Incan archeological site. We had to take off early in the... More

Built on old Inca terraces. Kept up with loving care. Very quiet, clean, lots of hot water. Right in the old Inca town but close enough to walk easily to the main square. Hotel staff great- friendly and always helpful. Access the top level with reception desk on top level. Bottom level next to river and taxi access. The set... More

This place was a little bit hard to find after a long day at Machu Picchu and after arriving by train in the evening. My friend and I aren't backpackers but we knew it was withing walking distance from the train station so we lugged our bags. We had to stop and ask for directions at least three times. BUT,... More

The hospitality was great! Sabrina gave us advice on where to eat, where to hike and knows the best of everything in town. We enjoyed our stay so much and wished we could've stayed longer. I loved the feel of bed and breakfast with excellent views. Quick tip: If you are wanting taxi transportation from the airport ask Sabrina to... More

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....
