We spent 4 nights in Ollantaytambo at Chaska Wasi hostel. The hostel is located in the old walled part of the city some of it from Inca days. More importantly, Katty the owner was unbelievably helpful. She created a wonderful atmosphere at the hostel, making a New Year's eve dinner for all of the guests.
As others have said, the upper level floors have a wonderful view of the valley and the nearby ruins. The hostel offers a great value..
