The staff did what they could with minimal resources but man, this hostel almost seemed unprepared to be open during low tourist season. Our shower and sink constantly leaked, the curtains didn't close all the way (it had a beautiful view of a garden but also ... awkward for changing), the wifi kept going kaput, there was no change to pay our balance and then to top it off, our last night/morning there we had a power outage. Poor girl at the front desk didn't have internet or power for 8 hours.
I had to cancel my stay but they accepted my cancellation and I hope to go there next year.
The KB Hostal was terrific.....great location near everything, wonderful and efficient staff members (Luciano and Carlos)...very clean and spotless rooms, great beds and best of all a beautiful courtyard garden with view of the mountains all around. Definitely a great place to stay on Ollantay
Nice place with friendly staff. Could probably use some sprucing up but not bad at all. Great location. Hot water showers. Would stay again.
Very helpful staff. We stayed 2 nights and took one day to with the children to Pumamarka ruins in the valley. We went by taxi (30$) and Walked 3 ours back to Ollantaytambo on a magnificent old Inca trail where we met donkeys and cows and no other tourists

I actually stayed here for 4 nights. The first two were ok, the room was average. The second two nights I was moved to another room that was cold and dingy. The bathroom door couldn't shut and there were spiderwebs everywhere. The actual hostel has wifi in the rooms which is good although slow. There is no lounge or Internet room, just a restaurant type place with hard wooden chairs.No water, tea etc is provided even though it is at altitude. The packed lunch is disgusting, don't buy it.
