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.
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!
