Clean, not expensive, safe. Wonderful owner, went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. Hot water, working bathrooms, clean blankets. Also, the bar across the street - you HAVE to go, it's the coolest place in the whole town!

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights after visiting Machu Picchu. We were pleasantly surprised by this family owned hospedaje. It has a bit of a 'cottage' feel to it, there are lots of beautiful plants and flowers in the common area that humming birds often visit. We stayed in a matrimonial room for s/. 30 per person....

We stayed here for 5 nights October 2014. This is the perfect place to have your own little Peru Home Stay! The home has been in the family for at least 100 years and is located down an Inca lane close to the main square. Quiet and convenient. It is a traditional adobe-covered U-shaped 2 storied, balconied home surrounding a... More

Located near the main plaza, this family run hostal was one of the lovliest places we stayed at in Peru. Rooms are basic, breakfast too, but you go there for the welcoming hosts. A few words of spanish will help to communicate. Improvement: No light in the toilets upstairs, seems unfinished. Our best wishes to Paula, Beto and son.

We enjoyed our stay here. We felt the rooms were a good value. Great location right off the main square on the road to the ruins. Walk across the street for great restaurants. Friendly, helpful staff. Wifi a bit slow, but worked in the room. Nice hot water showers. Would stay here again.

My experience here was incredible. When Paola and Beto, the owners, saw that I had injured my foot they took care of me as if I were a member of their own family. Their kindness and efficiency helped me through a difficult time and I will always hold them in a special place in my heart. They create a wonderful... More

We stayed at El Tambo for a month and fell in love with the accomodation, the family that runs it, and the town. El Tambo is run by Paula, Beto and with the help of there son Luis. It's an incredibly comfortable stay and extremely recommended for travelers that want to get to know the culture in Ollantaytambo. It is... More

We loved this place! Stayed 3 nights on our way to and from Aguas Calientes at this scenic and rustic family owned hostel. Beto and the señora (didn't catch her name) are eager to help and welcome. They cut us a deal for multi-night booking. Breakfast is offered when you stay two nights for one of the mornings. Courtyard and... More

basic indeed, but the rooms are clean, there is hot water and the hosts are very nice. In the evening you can just sit on the balcony in front of the rooms and enjoy the calm of this cute village, facing the mountains. We just stayed for 2 days a few days ago but I would definitely recommend it!
