We accidentally arrive a day before our reservation around 8. The couple that run up quickly made up our rooms which were nice. However, outside our room there was loud music and people talking. As promised the music was turned down at 9:30 and I slept fine with ear plugs. Breakfast was fresh Made juice and they cooked the eggs... More

All I will say is that the man who runs the place was very inappropriate with my friend and I on separate occasions, almost immediately to arriving. He even grabbed us inappropriately! When we slept, we locked the door and put a chair in front of it because we didn't trust him. Looking back, we should have just left altogether... More

I recently stayed at Sumac Chaska Hostal, both before and after visiting Machu Picchu. The owner was super nice and helped me with questions before my stay and during my stay. I originally booked a dorm room, but then the price for my own room was only a small bit more, so I had a room to myself. The hot... More

The couple who runs Sumac Chaska goes out of their way to accommodate you. I can't tell you how many questions I asked about getting to Machu Picchu after being told wrong information earlier. The hostel beds are EXTREMELY comfortable. Plenty of sheets that were obviously just cleaned. They showed me to my room and brought me to the roof... More

Sumac Chaska is fantastic! Marie is the best host and knows everything about the area! Everything is very clean and comfortable. I stayed there while leading a group of high school students, and Marie was superbly accommodating and helpful: from calling a doctor for a house call for a student to walking with me to the market to secretly find...

The rooms decor felt hip and homey. I am a vegan and the owners were very accommodating with my dietary needs. It was a plus that their breakfast was more than just bread and jam. The owner's are also knowledgeable about Ollantaytambo.

I stayed with my wife two days in Sumac Cashka hostal. The location was great since we booked the train to Aguas Calientes from Ollantaytambo train station very early.

You have to be thankful for this kind of guest because they provide good lessons. In general, we have lovely, interesting guests from all over the world, but every so often (and I'm sorry to say, it's usually my fellow English countrymen) someone comes by who wants to take you for all they can get and they think they know...
