“A little Oasis”
Reviewed May 1, 2007

Once you get past the fact that you actually have to call the hostal directly (and that the people don't speak English) this is a great little place to stay.

The room and the bathroom were both a good size. The breakfast was standard. The courtyard is quite lovely and the location of the hostal ensures that there will be complete silence in the evening. We stayed in a ground level room which provided a little bit of a view of the ruins. However, I presume that one of the upper rooms would provide an outstanding view!

The hotwater seemed to be very reliable!

Our only complaint would be that the beds were very hard, that being said, we both slept well.

This was great value for a cheap price.

Eva, Romulo and their family operate this hostal. It is conveniently located within easy walking distance of everything in the delightful town of Ollantaytambo.

There is a beautiful courtyard where we saw humming birds flitting amongst the plants. The courtyard is sunny and a great place to sit with your cup of coffee after you have had breakfast in the dining room - of course there is nothing to stop you having your whole breakfast outside.

If you are planning a trip to Macchu Picchu, this is the place to start. It is just a short walk down the hill to the station where you catch the train to Aquas Calinteas at the foot of Machu Picchu.

Nearby there are many restaurants and of course the markets selling wonderful handicrafts. The ruins of Ollantaytambo are also only minutes away. My son had stayed there previously and I agreed with his choice of accommodation for our trip a couple of weeks ago.
