TravelPod Member ReviewsChaska Wasi Hostel Ollantaytambo
This is a nice friendly hostel right on the main plaza. The owner has had a hostel in town for over 10 years & is a mine of information regarding the entire Sacred Valley as well as genuine volunteering options in the area. The hostel was clean & welcoming. The roof terrace had fantastic views to the surrounding hills. The charm to Ollantaytambo is that it is a small working town; yes tourists come through here in their droves to visit MP etc but you will see farmers working the fields of the very fertile sacred valley. Katty asks that guests contribute to the local community; a 1kg bag of sugar or rice helps in a big way. 4Kg of sugar from the local market cost me 10soles, approx 2pounds. One thing to note is that Katty moved her hostel from another part of town a few years back. Another hostel opened in the same area with pretty much the same name run by an English woman. Poor show really!

Here two indigenous animals sheltered from the heat of the day - chinchillas, their large ears and tails poking out from the craggy rocks. At all times, we were engrossed in the traditional stories and beautiful architecture. It was so incredible, that we did not want to leave, but sadly, our time was up, and we joined the ...
