I arrived at this Hostel after taking a taxi from Cusco Airport. The quoted price by the Hostel was 80 Soles, however the driver upon arrival charged me 100 Soles. I was greeted by a nice gentlemen that spoke very little English but tried to communicate the best he could so we could understand each other. I had taken a... More

We paid 50 dolara per room and i found it much too expensive for a standard this place offers. I was sure it was 50 soles but when i saw the bill i couldnt believe it. Its an ok place for backpackers but much too expensive for what it has to offer. Rather dissapointing.

I was excited to visit Ollantaytambo! And Casa De Wow seemed like the right place to be. Unfortunately I was disappointed. PROS I was picked up at the airport exactly as promised. Winn/Wow are very knowable about the area and their pride of their "town" is reflected by their guidance and assistance to guests. She did make a suggestion for... More

I think all of the fantastic reviews may have given us the wrong impression of this hostal. It is a beautifully decorated, clean and well located place but it really is just a slightly above average hostal, I would not consider it a B&B. We may have had bad timing as the owners apparently weren't there, a young man named... More

Casa de Wow!!! is a great place to stay if you find yourself in Ollantaytambo. And not just for one night enroute to Machu Picchu. There is plenty to do in the area and everyone at Casa de Wow is full of wisdom and offerings to ensure you experience the natural wonders of the area, in abundance. The attention to... More

Everyone was friendly and welcoming and place has lots of charm. It takes a while for the shower to heat up but when it did, it was hot and good pressure. Breakfast was eggs, bread and jam. Not many rooms so breakfast was very communal and got to know other guests. Arrived planning on staying one night and immediately booked... More

The location of this hostel is absolutely great! Close to the center and all the restaurants. Walking into the hostel felt a little small but that didn't take away from the charm the house has. The breakfast was great, they have a sweet Peruvian woman come in and make your breakfast (eggs, coffee, tea, and she brings fresh bread). Overall... More

The thing that made me photograph all available rooms in the place was the furniture - the design was as if sleeping in a tree bed. Wow and the staff was really friendly, I got my first peruvian horse riding experience there that I shall remember for ever.

loved this place. Clean, kind and helpful. I've suggested the place to many people. This was from my travel prior and I hope to visit them again. The wife is from Memphis so we had lots to chat about. They gave us great walk about information. I wish we had used this place as our base for all the sacred... More

Great and homey place. We stayed there for two nights. The owner was incredibly warm, helpful and fun to be with. Hostal has some cool and chilled out vibes and there's lot to see and experience. Same thing goes to Ollantaytambo as well. Totally fife changing experience :) Thank You so much!
