Hostal El Tambo
Ranked #12 of 33 Ollantaytambo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 October 2011

This is a lovely, simple hostel for the backpacker passing through. Beds were clean and firm, lots of blankets if we needed. Owner is friendly, lives on site, and has a sweet puppy.

My only complaint is that the bathrooms are communal by gender and separate. So you need to walk across a dirty courtyard to do anything in the bathroom. When at the mirror or sink, there is no privacy, it is open to the courtyard.

My two suggestions:
1) Add a small, swinging privacy door at the entrance to the mens and women's bathroom areas for more privacy.

2) Add small shelves or counters in the bathrooms. Right now there is nowhere to set anything down. Floors are dirty (open to the outdoors) and so it's a bit of a problem. A simple wooden shelf doesn't cost much and would make a big difference.

Other than that, its a great place to stay to save money and be comfortable.

We were greeted by the super-friendly and helpful owner and his new puppy. This hostal is very bare-bones, but a perfect choice.

The rooms are clean, simple, and comfortable.

Stayed one night here. It's right on the main road -- close to everything. The staff is excellent. The room was clean and accommodating. They have a beautiful roof deck that has a great view.
