Directions to Sumac Chaska Hostel
Map & Directions
Directions from Cusco:
There are a number of ways to reach us from Cusco:
- Taxi from the airport, offical, registered drives will charge $50+ for a private ride.
- By bus or shared taxi, there are 2 bus stations in Cusco: 'Pavitos' and 'Huaskar'. Some buses come direct to Ollantaytambo (or Ollanta). They all pass Urabamba where some require you change on to another bus to Ollantaytambo/ Ollanta.
The direct bus will be a couple of soles more than the journey requiring the change. The price is approx 6-8 soles (as of 23/8/12).
- You can also get a taxi share at these terminals, 12 soles per person (as at 23/8/12).
Both buses and taxi's leave when they are full, they run constantly until very late at night and from very, very early in the morning.
The transport will bring you to the main square and we are located on the street that runs down the side of Panaka Restaurant, to the right when you leave the taxi.
If the bus stops at the market, walk towards the square (market on your right), cross the square diagonally and follow the cobbled road by the side of Panaka, we are just 2 mins up the road on the right.
By train from Machu Picchu:
Its just under 2 hour train ride from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo.
You can either walk up the hill from the station, or get a motor taxi. The same road brings you all the way to the square, take the first left, down the side of Panaka Restaurant, we are on the right, 2 mins walk. (Motor taxi at 2 soles)
