Quiet hostel, not much atmosphere at all. The manager explained all activities/sights on the map very well. Shower was hot but average pressure. A bit pricey for Ecuador standards given no breakfast included.


Internet was not working properly was very weak even near the desk No drinkable water in a country where you can't drink tap water No facilities. Except an empty kitchen. No breakfast available. Nothing

Hostel was a little off from the main square and on slight slope. Hostel has a lot of space but not properly furnished or do up and a little dusty. Shared kitchen at the rooftop was great to prepare your meal and eat there and plenty of rooftop space to wash and dry your laundry. TV was not working in the room.

Roberto was unbelievably helpful and friendly upon arrival, providing an amazing map of Otavalo and information on getting to Lake Cuicocha, Cotacachi, and other attractions in the area. Big kitchen and outdoor sink and clothes lines for travelers looking to hand wash some clothes. Hostel was quiet but relaxing. Central location - walking distance to markets, ATMs, restaurants, and bus terminal.


I loved the hostel. There are so many terraces and staircases. It can seem like a maze sometimes. Plus, the roof has some great views. Milton was very friendly and helpful. He gave me and explained one of the best city maps I have ever seen at a hostel.


The hostal is perched on a hill; we had the room on the top floor with a private balcony so we had an amazing view. There is a basic kitchen also on the top floor. Location is easy to walk to the central market but a little bit away so it is quiet. At check in we got a map and a break down of all the sights and costs etc. Very helpful! We also had a tv and DVD player in the room.


the staff was a great start to our stay here. They were actually waiting inside the door for us when we arrived. They gave us a map the city and recommended busses, restaurants, activities etc. They us to our and gave us a tour of the hostel as well. Any time we needed help with anything, someone happily at our service. The location was also great. It was comfortable walking distance from everything and nice and quiet at night. Overall, my friend and I really enjoyed our stay.


We loved this hostel!
