Very friendly greeting from Milton who was very helpful and showed us round when we arrived. A map was supplied of the local area and included details for banks, markets, local walks and further afield. Kitchen facilities were good, wifi worked well, hot showers every day and there were washing lines. The hill mentioned by some other reviewers was really not that bad, I would describe it as a slope rather than a hill! Just a 5 minute stroll to the centre of town.

Decent place. Nothing special. Long walk up hill from town center. Nothing at hostal except kitchen. They did not sell water or beer, so had to walk for it. There is a bar but it is closed.

Decent hostel, slightly out of the centre (5 min walk) on a hill with great views over the town, staff very helpful, kitchen is under equipped but just about sufficient, unlikely to find a better place for the price!

Really nice hotel with great roof top. The kitchen is located on the rooftop so its like a comun area for everybody. Staff is really nice and friendly.

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!

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.
