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


Stayed there one night, the guy from the reception was really helpful, facilities are good!!


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.


Really lovely place, excellent location, wonderful views and staff


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.

Spacious, well located hostel with very welcoming and knowledgable staff, great roof top kitchen and washing line. Only less good point was that the shower was low pressured and cold


Amazing owner, treats you like his best friend the minute you walk in. Really made our stay in Otavalo special. Muchas gracias Roberto!!

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.
