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!


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.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review despite your time here being so short. Come back and enjoy more of Sumac Chaska and Ollantaytambo next time. Happy travels and kind regards from all the family here.


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 : )

Thanks guys, is always nice to find people like you SumacChaska


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!

Thanks, I hope that u had a really nice time here and don't forget that you are welcome any time.


Great place that is right off the street from the central market. The staff was extremely helpful and can give you insight to the city and great tips. There is a ton to do in the city and to explore. The bathroom and shower could be a bit cleaner and with working locks. Otherwise, a highly recommended stay. The view from the terrace is hard to beat!
