A nice hotel-like hostel with a sound kitchen, private en-suite rooms for dorm-like prices. The town is walkable, so the location is just fine, a couple blocks out of the noise but five minutes into the action. Really recommend visiting the waterfall.
The hostel is very clean, central location, nice kitchen and good value for money. We forgot some sunglasses by our mistake in the hostel and the owner was so nice to send them to Quito and even paid for this service on his own! We are very thankful and glad to know that there are still very honest people. Thank you very much!
The owners are amazing!! All the time they assist you and give you advice for not paying too much. The place is super clean and well located.
Nice Hostel. Kitchen could use more utensils and it would be nice to have a computer for guests to use. Very warm welcome from staff.
Good hostel with a really nice feel to it. Incredibly helpful staff, kitchen, rooftop terrace, and free (diy) laundry. A nice place to stay. Recommended.
The hostel is very clean. The owner is very nice, helpful and friendly. The place is quit and kid friendly. All my family enjoy your stay!
I'm having a hard time thinking of a good way to describe this hostel. There is nothing really wrong with it, but it has a strange feel to it. It's a huge house with big hallways. The rooms are functional, but not great. Pretty old fashioned. It's an ok place to stay for a night to check out the market, but it doesn't give you any kind of cozy feeling that makes you want to stay longer.
The manager Roberto is an absolute gem and completely genuine! Can not say enough good things about this hostal, the city of otavalo and the people in the area. Roberto will be sure you are taken care of and help you with anything you need. Book and enjoy! :)
Milton and Roberto were very helpful and friendly, and they kept the kitchen quite clean considering all of the people using it, as were the rooms and baths. It would have been nice to have a locker, though, in that one day we returned to find our door unlocked, although nothing was taken. (The lock had been replaced, so we needed a new key.) Someone is always around if you need help, and there was even a secure garage for our rental car. The location is good, too.
Good location, just a few minutes from the main square. Excellent staff, view and wifi. I would definitely recommend this hostel!
Great great hostal Milton and Roberto are your hosts who a the most friendliest and helpfull people they give you a great welcome and a detailed map . We like otovelo not just for the markets but surrounding walk . We walked around the volcano rim over the lake which was the best walk we did during or trip . Rooms are comfy we had on suite wifi every were and great roof to terrace . On of the best stays of our trip . THANKS MILTON AND ROBERTO
This hostel really has one of the nicest staff we ever had on our 7-month-travel! And the rooms are very clean, safe and big. Very worth to go there:)
The staff were nice and helpful, but the shower in our room was very poor and needs fixing.
Really nice, comfortable hostel. Clean and accomodating with TV and DVD in room and a big collection of DVDs which after 11 months travelling is a welcome relaxant. The owners are really lovely, we booked for 2 nights and stayed 5.
just wonderful people, excellent location, beautiful room with little balcony!!! we were sorry to leave!!!!
Loved Hostel Chasqui. Milton was there if you needed him for anything and very helpful, the map and directions were the best we had in our 3 month trip. The kitchen was a good communal area to chat and meet other travellers. The best for us was the terraces with amazing views of Otavalo, we ate breakfast and dinner outside, sometimes by candle light! Lovely hostel and Otavalo (after Quito) was a breath of fresh air. Fantastic DVD collection too.
I booked a night at Chasqui and ended up staying for three - they had clothes washing facilities there and a clothes line so it worked out. Milton was super helpful with information on stuff to to around town and outside of town. Super affordable private room with DVD player and movies. My only gripe was that the Internet was down for a day when I was there but they got it fixed before I left. I wish there were more hostels like this!
We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff member Milton was amazing and was so helpful and friendly. The room was good, shower was hot and the bed was comfortable. Not to mention some great views of the city!
The staff are amazing, the kitchen is spacious an homey and the roof top view is fantastic!
