I have to say this was the best stay in Peru for me. The owner and his wife were very nice. My room was very clean with a private bathroom and hot shower. I even had a small balcony (small). Great deal

We were in Peru in September and looking for lodging unexpectedly as we had decided we loved Ollantaytambo even more than Machu Picchu. We decided that we wanted to explore the ruins the next morning. We were advised by another hotel that while they were full, this was a hotel that might have a room. We got a room that was comfortable and we met the owners. These people are truly gracious. My husband and I both enjoyed our stay, were comfortable with the amenities and appreciated the host's kindness. On waking in the morning, looking out a breezeway, we realized we were overlooking the ruins. It was a truly beautiful trip and the Hostal La Casa del Abuelo was one of the gems we have as a memory of it. (We are a gay couple and this was not an issue here.)

Room Tip: top floor!

Great budget place in Olly. Hot water (got ask at the reception for them to turn it on sometimes), very good wifi reception in the room, good beds, quiet and private, very friendly and helpful staff, the place seems brand new. There are more luxurious places, but for the price (60 soles for a double, no breakfast) this is the best. Should have spent more time here than in cusco. The location is really good also!

I have had the fortune to stay at Casa Del Abuelo, perhaps not as a regular traveler. I stayed almost 4 weeks having spent 9 weeks in Peru's Ollantaytambo. The day I met the owners Henry and Catty, I was welcomed immediately to their family. I have written an article within my blog so that you may get to know them better. This is a new hostel, like a mini hotel. You get low cost, clean rooms, private bathrooms, hot water, free wi-fi and the option for having breakfast and lots of coca tea, not to mention the friendly welcome and homely atmosphere. Ollantaytambo is a most unique and cultural town in all of Peru, a living Inca Museum worth a visit of more than a few days.

Room Tip: Top Floor has the best views and may be cooler in Hot Wet Season. Buy some coca leaves and use the...

Hostal La Casa del Abuelo was a great little hostel. The rooms were small, but clean and quite affordable. The owners, Catty and Henry were delightful and very helpful. Their baby girl (Mikaela) was absolutely adorable. It was very convenient to the fortress ruins, but was also nice and quiet. If you are looking for a party, this may not be your place. But if you want a quiet, clean, affordable, and friendly place to stay, this could be your place.
