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!

Aguas Calientes has a “wild west” town feel to it.

All that has now changed. The town is actually quite large with numerous hotels ranging from 5-star to backpacker hostels, restaurants, ...
... we assumed was our agency person back in Cusco. Half and hour later the receptionist was taking us back over the river to another hostel, and from here we were shunted across the road to another. Despite promises of being in a proper town we still didn't get much more than luke warm shower water.
We reconvened in the square for half six (though with so little time to get ready we were a bit late) were the tour continued to unravel. Despite having ...
