We really enjoyed our one Night stay at this hostel. The rooms are very cute, well decorated and comfortable. The view from the balcony of the ruins is incredible. The location is close to the plaza and the cobblestone walk to and from places was memorable. The staff at the hostel was very friendly. The breakfast was excellent. The homemade... More

Like others, we booked for 2 and stayed for 5! So beautiful, perfect location, staff all excellent and so helpful. Beautiful breakfast. We would just really recomment Ollantaytamo as a base for Maccu Pichu, hiking, mountain bike riding etc....you can also go and visit communities and buy textiles direct (we caught a taxi to Huilloc with Roberto whose taxi stand...

I loved this place. Small, 7 rooms maybe. Built on a hill that overlooks the Ruins. Multiple levels. Breakfast was extensive: fruit, cereal, eggs, bread, yogurt, teas. We had to walk up some very steep stone steps to get here.

Not enough words to describe this oasis of a hostel. A few extra $ but worth every penny. Queen superior is the best. Staff great, setting is quiet and relaxing. My son and I booked before and after our run to Machu Picchu, with a stay in Aquas Callente in between. Returning to Hostel Iskay after a day hiking up... More

Many other reviewers mentioned deciding to lengthen their stay at Hostal Iskay--and we did too. We had planned to stay for only a night on our way between Machu Picchu and Cuzco, but we found both the town and the Hostal so wonderful that we ended up staying nearly week. Iskay is on a street in the old Ink town... More

This place was fantastic! We had room 6 - double bed private ensuite - the view was to die for over the fortress ruins!! We even had an private outdoor garden sitting area. The staff were fantastic, breakfast was included and was delicious. Excellent location - close enough to the centre square but not on a main road so it... More

Spent one night there . The rooms are clean, there was hot water and the view on the ruins is amazing. Our kids were in a standard room which was very small. We had a better room with a larger bed . Can walk to the train station and town center. Very convenient before heading to aguas calientes

The highlight of our trip so far. For starters the hotel is very organised and proactive. When we made the booking they suggested that they send a private driver to fetch us from Cusco and spend the day touring the surrounding areas on our drive down. This included Pisaq, Moray and the Salt Mines - highly recommended! The hotel itself... More
