This hostal is just about a block from the main square of the town and just a few blocks from the train to Machu Picchu. We felt very welcome at this hostal. The breakfast was excellent. However, beware that the coffee served is "essence of coffee" which we discovered to be a very think, concentrated coffee. Once you dilute it... More

El Sauce Hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room and bathroom were clean and both were larger than we expected. We had an early departure for Aguas Calientes by train. The owner provided us with tasty hot coffee & tea, plus a tasty breakfast "to go" at 5:15am, when normally breakfast doesn't start until 6 or 6:30. We had no problem... More

We did not stay at the postal but had a wonderful tapas dinner there prepared by the new chef, Gustavo. He calls his new restaurant, Meija, and it is sure to be a hit. Wonderful fusion Peruvian cuisine prepared with care and served with style and sophistication. What a surprise in the middle of a small, Andean village. Yummy.......

One night here, in between visiting the Ollanta fortress and going on the train to Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu. The town itself is a bit run-down, but that's a result of the tourism trade and the excess of cheap back-packers, and bus-based tourists. So I wasn't expecting much from this hostel. But surprisingly nice inside, rooms spacious, prices reasonable, great Peruvian... More

Perfect as a launching point for Machu Picchu. Incredibly quaint, cute and clean. Wish I'd stayed an extra night after Machu Picchu instead of heading straight back to Cusco. Breakfast in the morning was wonderful. Didn't bother me one bit that there was some language disconnect because there was no question they valued customer service.

Out of the three places we stayed in Peru this is by far my favorite, such a cute little hostel. The best breakfast with organic yogurt, honey, delicious cereals with quinoa and homemade jams (that you can also buy and take back for family and friends). It’s centric located, walking distance to the train station. Chela made us feel at... More

We found this hostel with tripadvisor, and it didn't disappoint us. The location is great, close to main square and sight seeing spots. Rom is nice and clean with hot shower and comfy bed. Friendly staff too. Breakfast is basic though.

We loved our stay here with the views straight to the archaeological site. We were 3 friends travelling together and stayed here on our way back from Machu Picchu it was perfect for all of us. The room was spacious and welcoming and the staff were very helpful and attentive. There was an ATM in the lobby which was very... More

Many travellers choose to stay in Ollantaytambo as it is less than two hours away by train from Macchu Picchu, or as a pit-stop after travelling in the Sacred Valley. Sauce Hostal is located close to the town square and train station, making it a convenient location to find restaurants/cafe nearby or to travel to/from MP. The hotel is a... More

We stayed 1 night after our trip to Machu Picchu. The rooms are very basic and clean. The breakfast was good. Water pressure and temperature was great. The owners are very caring. Three small issues: 1. WiFi was very slow in the room 2. Language could be an issue if you don't speak Spanish 3. The prices seemed high compared... More
