Very good location, amazing views from the bar b q area. Not good for whoever got cats allergy! Cats are everywhere & even their smell, especially in the common area.

Stayed for one night on way back from Agua Calientes in a private room. We booked online, but on arrival we were told they had given our room away so hadto wait for them to find another one. Room was not bad, located at the back of the hostel with 2 beds. Was hard to get hot water in the shower. Hostel has no wifi but that seems the norm in the town. Location is great down a narrow alley near the main square. Walls pretty thin so could hear other rooms quite easiliy. Still, best value in town.

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..

Staying at Chaska Wasi was a pleasure!!After a hard time in Cuzco we found a place to rest and relax.The room was lovely,very clean and warm,and with hot water!!!Katy and her brother were ever so helpful and friendly.When my rucksack fell apart they took me to the local market,found the right man and explained everything (my Spanish wouldnt let me do it;)) so I was sorted in less than 30 minutes!!
If you are in Ollantaytambo thats the place to stay:))

My friend and I stayed here one night on the way to Machu Picchu and then stayed an additional five nights on the way back through. I can't recommend this place enough. Top of the line. Katy is very helpful, and has great service. We stayed on the top floor that the other reviewer mentioned and, yes, it offers a great view of the ruins. If I ever return to Ollantaytampo (which I hope to do next year) I will definitely rent a room at Chaska Wasi Hostal.

Katy is the ultimate host, friendly, informative. Backpacker beds for S/.20@, basic kitchen, two cable TVs, and the upper-level rooms have great views of the town and the valley.
