SUPER!!! Better wifi would be nice, but not sure that is possible in Ollantaytambo?? Nowhere had good wifi, but there was no wifi in my room. It will be great when the gas showers are put in. Marie and the abuela are the best. They make you feel like part of the family. Baby Tiago is great too! :-) Good location, lots of local contacts. Great terrace view. Good breakfast - a good deal for the 2 soles for eggs. Pretty good beds. Amble blankets. Soap and towels included. Pillows weren't great.

Great location, friendly and helpful english speaking man working as the owner. Great breakfast made for us by the lady. Great relax from busy cusco. The whole place is having renovations and it is looking great. The workers were polite and didn't interrupt sleep or recreation.
Very helpful owners gave us lots of details on what to see in the area. Our matrimonial/double room was lovely - very modern, clean & comfy. Nice and quiet too for a good night's sleep. Shower water was hot and the shared bathroom was clean. Breakfast was a welcome inclusion with eggs, bread, jam. Would definitely stay again :)
Hostel was excellent - thank you all! The only feedback I would give is to proactively ask your clients if they need more bathroom supplies/anything in general. Other than that, everything was very nice. Thanks again!

A lot of money charged for a very poor establishment . It's not even worth one fifth of the money that's charged. And this does not qualify to be advertised as a living place.
This place was so terrible, we found another place to stay. The lobby is dark and dingy. The staff seemed nice and the room was ok, but the shower basically faced outside with a window that did not close. It gets very chilly at night, and there is no heat or insulation in the rooms. It was more like a treehouse, and there was construction and supplies everywhere. There are many places like this in Ollantaytambo, but this was definitely overpriced.
Great place.... friendly staff
The price was a bit high given the light breakfast that is provided. Eggs can be served for an extra 5 soles, but should probably be included for over 90 soles a night. The hostel did let us use the kitchen which was quite nice.
There's no security at the hostel in terms of locks at the main door, but there's always a staff member in the front room and the city is ridiculously safe. Absolutely no hot water (there's a knob for it in the shower but no results) and the toilet in our room flushed at its convenience. The shared toilet was also clogged and we heard our neighbor (walls are thin) attempt to flush and start swearing at his toilet too. Staff are very helpful in planning activities around the area.
lovely place surrounded by amazingly beautiful site , warm sheet and clean cozy room. I enjoyed my time staying there.
The managers are great. Marie is British and her husband Kali speaks English so there are no problems with communication. We went out to dinner with them and the there beautiful son Tiago. They knew everything to do in and around the city. Every morning they serve a nice breakfast and get you ready for the day. They even packed us a breakfast when we went Macchu Picchu. Thanks so much for helping make our trip full of amazing memories!
Beds and staff are good. They give you a breakfast to go if you leave too early. Bathroom is terrible.
Pros: Location Cons: Poor breakfast - had to wait, dirty table; the terrace is not worth it - is not part of the room and everyone can be there; additionally there was clothes hanging...
We stayed at this hostel and we love it. The personal is just great! The kitchen is big and very comfortable. It's clean and they have a nice view if you go up to the terrace.
Due to the directions on the Hostel World website this place was easy to find. The door is right there facing the street. The hosts were great people. Cali (Carlos) the guy in charge is super nice and helpful. If he has time he will take the time to point out all the cool places to check out in the city. The Internet connection here is a little better than the hostel I stayed at in Cusco. The only downside was the bathroom, no soap dispenser nor paper towels.
Everything everyone's written is true. The common room is kind of like a family room, but it's nice and so are the owners so it was fine for me. That shower, though, is horrible. Owners clearly are on notice so I'm not sure why they don't fix it.
I stayed for three days, I loved it. Very convenient location. They had some construction happening, but it didn't get in the way. The couple are very lovely, open to privacy or open to talk as well. Shared meals with them and met their child also. If I make it back I hope to stay longer! Took me a minute to learn to use the shower, but other than that the beds were very comfortable and warm and they have an amazing view of the city on the top floor. Recommended!
The British woman who runs the place is great.
They were very kind and helpful. They have deals with local restaurants and will show tell you all of the things to do in the town. We were leaving before breakfast started so she packed us a to-go breakfast. It was very nice. The location is right in the heart of the town and the view from the terrace is wonderful, you can see all of the sites and town. The bathroom had a few issues while we were there, but that was expected for Peru.
Nice and calm hostel manage by owner in the hear of the Inca town. Beautiful!!!. It has a Terrance to see the whole town and Ruins. The owner knows a lot about the tourist attraction near by. He gives us some tips and tour to do. The only bad thing is it has a single toilet for all rooms.
