Favorite part of our two week trip to Peru. We stayed as a stepping stone back from our visit to Macchu Picchu. KB alone has a lot to offer. Chet was a very helpful guide through the Sacred Valley.

There are no frills, save excellent and friendly advice from owner KB (he knows a ton about local mtn biking and the ruins) and GREAT meals. Thhis is not luxury, but a fun and hospitable place. The location is a little close to the sometimes busy street and you want to stay in the newer part of the place, but...

KB runs his Hostal with pride and it shows, in the rooms, service and superb restaurant. Our family of 4 stayed there Marchl 2009, 3 nights, the rooms are quiet, the staff is helpful and the garden is in full bloom.
