Very helpful staff and nicely decorated female dorm. Charming property in a good location.
I had a very pleasant stay however the room was very dark (no windows) and the lamp shade over the main light didn't help. All good- just meant better to spend the whole day out and about.

This place is really great! The staff were so nice and helpful and gave us a little tour. There is an area on the roof where you get a great view of the city and all of the ruins surrounding you. Hot water (run it at a trickle to get it to heat up... after that you can turn up the pressure and it'll be good), nice room (though we had no window). No wifi, but they do have laundry service. They kept our bags while we were at Machu Picchu for no extra cost.
6 bed room would have been very cramped if fully booked, as there is nowhere to put luggage. Luckily it wasnt busy so it was not an issue for me. Cute building and courtyards.
Stay here! The owners are friendly, helpful and genuine people! They helped us plan hikes to isolated ruins (Pumamarka), kept our bags in a locked room while we were at Machu Picchu, and helped us organize an affordable private tour to other areas of the sacred valley. Clean rooms, sunny courtyard and common room for meeting other travelers. Views of all the local ruins can be seen from their rooftop!
Staff was great! Changed our room after booking error with no problem. English speaking staff very informative. Hostel was beautiful! The hostel was the nicest one we have stayed in in Peru. Only draw-back was poor water pressure.
Great, cozy little hostel! The staff was so welcoming. Room was nice and the shower was nice a hot. I would definitely recommend ollaytayntambo (and this hostel!!) for a day of exploration and a restful night before or after a visit to Machu Picchu. Lots to see around this great town!
Great location near the town square in a fabulous little town. Great advice from the hostel owners about where to eat, where to go, local lore and legends. Also a delicious breakfast and beautiful rooms.
Very cute little hostel with a lovely atmosphere. The staff were very helpful in arranging us a taxi to take us around to see all the local attractions: Moray, Salineras, Chinchero, etc. Only set back was that the water was cold in our shower, and it was cold when we were visiting. I could see how this would be a plus in warmer weather. Our room was however equipped with heavy bedding to help keep us warm. Very close to Ollantaytambo ruins, only 5 minute walk. Great experience.
Sumac Chaska Hostel was our first hostel experience. It was wonderful. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the room clean and comfortable and the included breakfast delicious! I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone coming to Ollantaytambo.

Stayed only one (half actually) night. Beds comfy and warm. Staff speaks English, WiFi limited in speed.
It was a nice hostel overall. But the bathroom wasn't cleaned very well. The shower barely had any hot water. And wifi was slow.
Everyone here is exceptionally nice and helpful. The room was great! We would stay here again : )
Good location though after all it is a small town. Nice house and comfy dorm bed! Owner is a cool guy who offered me a lot of tips in terms of getting around to see more of famous inca sites in one day. Informative and helpful!
