This was my favorite hostel out of the 1.5months I spent in South America. It was quiet, very friendly staff, the best breakfast I had in S.A. also. My only regret is not staying longer.

The best thing about Sumac Chaska Hostel is its location in the brilliant and lovely Inca village of Ollantatambo. The hostel is on a cobbled street in a place that positively reeks the glorious Inca history. The bed was comfy and warm and the hosts were hospitality itself. A wonderful hostel in a wonderful place for a wonderfully cheap price. Muchas gracias, amigos.
Good location, staff are extremely helpful - he pointed out all the hikes, etc in the area. Breakfast was good. Only downsides were the wifi (not great, even in common room) and we did not have hot water.
We loved our time here. The view was amazing, very friendly main staff member although ocassionally awkward with family members of hostel owner watching tv in common room and kitchen as we felt as though we were intruding on their space. Only downside was that we slept in our sleeping bags the whole time as there was stains on several spots on the bed sheets.
Comfortable bed with nice duvet perfect for cold nights. Great views on top floor balcony! Friendly host and family with a lot of tips of what you can do around town. Recommended for stay in this lovely town.
This hostel has a great view of the ruins. Our private room was very clean and worth the money for one night. While we were exploring the ruins during the day, they kept our stuff behind the front desk after we had checked out. The staff is very friendly
Great place, down a little street from the Plaza. Not very upbeat personnel, but beds are excellent as well as the facilities. Everyone was helpful though, just not friendly as could be. Only complaint, since I am talkative!
Nice stay in Ollanta - appreciated the atmosphere!
Great little place with friendly and welcoming owners, only one bathroom to share between all guests, but I feel this would not be a problems as it is a small hostel. Room was big and clean. Breakfast was good with fresh bread. Would recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere to stay in ollantaytambo. It is in a really nice street amount the history of the town.
good location in a nice town well worth a visit. staff very helpful and friendly, with lots of tips for cheap ways to visit local inca tourist sites. nice views from rooftop aswell
Very wonderful place. The town of Ollanta is authentic - a spendid retreat from Cusco and Aguas Caliente. This hostel fits the needs of travelers. If you are looking for a party - you won't find it in this town, nor this hostel. You will however find a beautiful and serene atmosphere in and out of the hostel.
We really liked this hostel located in a charming street in Ollantaytambo. Marie and Caly were very nice and helpful and provided excellent tips. The room was good and we had hot water. There is a lovely mountain right behind the hostel that you can climb for free and has lovely views of the ruins and the town.
The only negative was the shower but everything else was very good for the price range.

Thank you for making me feel very welcome. A great place to stay.
Wonderful hostel in a great little town! Staff was so welcoming and helpful! Let us use the kitchen and told us a bunch of things we could do in and around the town. Lots of great hiking walking distance from the hostel and great convenience to Machu Picchu! Overall great experience and would definitely recommend the hostel!
I arrived late and the owner of the hostel was waiting for me. She was incredibly nice and and very helpful. She made amazing pancakes in the morning. If you can book the ensuite private room on the top floor it has an amazing view of the ruins. The only downside was that the shower was not hot but otherwise this is a great place to stay in the Sacred Valley!
