Staff very helpful (if you can speak or not speak Spanish). Wifi is pretty good and pretty fast if wifi goes down wait a couple of minutes. Location is good and away from noise. A short walk to super market about 5 min. or less. Kitchen is big and equipped pretty good. One dollar from bus station to hostal. Would recommend this hostal.


Nicely located and friendly staff. Recommended.

Good wifi. Clean rooms. Big kitchen. Bar on the lower level but remains quiet in the evenings. A little walk from the centre but not too far. Views of the city from the top levels. Very helpful staff.

Fantastic staff!!!!!


I really enjoyed my stay at this place. Flexible check in/check out is a rarity in South America. I appreciated this so much about this hotel, it cannot be underestimated! Staff members are helpful about maximizing your time in the area. I would definitely recommend and return! Thanks so much!


Spacious hostel with lovely views from room and roof terraces, in a peaceful area. Owner was so friendly, kind and helpful and gave us the best illustrated map I have seen on my travels. Shame the hostel was quiet and the communal areas looked a little derelict. With more people and a bit of attention it could be really excellent.


More hotel-like, the owner is extremely nice and helpful, good for a stopover and do not miss the saturday night cockfights!


There are lots more hostels and places to stay not listed on this site! This is more like a hotel, no dorms. Very basic. NO HOT WATER! Not clean toilets. No toilet paper. Door handle to bathroom came off! Located a bit further than everything else. No one around to help most of the time, but you ring a bell a few times and someone eventually appears. No atmosphere here. Wouldn't stay again!


We were lucky to get one of the best rooms at the top (in fact a great room with private balcony) but these rooms do suffer with poor water pressure and also suddenly get really hot.


Loved this hostel! Really friendly welcoming man on reception. Brilliant room with huge balcony with viewa view across town and ensuite. Stay here you won't be disappointed!


This was our 3rd hostel in Otavalo after 2 not so great prior experiences. It was great. A friendly welcome, a map of Otavalo on arrival, a great kitchen, good WiFi, hot water and free laundry. We were offered a choice of rooms and took the very top one. Some suggestions: please fix the shower in the top room so the water temperature is consistent. Please change your advertised payment options. They only take cash, no card. Please change the sponge in the kitchen more often. Gracias!


In a massive weird old building with a nice roof terrace and kitchen on the top floor . Staff are friendly and helpful and its walking distance to the market and main square
