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.
Good location, just a few minutes from the main square. Excellent staff, view and wifi. I would definitely recommend this hostel!
Great great hostal Milton and Roberto are your hosts who a the most friendliest and helpfull people they give you a great welcome and a detailed map . We like otovelo not just for the markets but surrounding walk . We walked around the volcano rim over the lake which was the best walk we did during or trip . Rooms are comfy we had on suite wifi every were and great roof to terrace . On of the best stays of our trip . THANKS MILTON AND ROBERTO
This hostel really has one of the nicest staff we ever had on our 7-month-travel! And the rooms are very clean, safe and big. Very worth to go there:)
The staff were nice and helpful, but the shower in our room was very poor and needs fixing.
Really nice, comfortable hostel. Clean and accomodating with TV and DVD in room and a big collection of DVDs which after 11 months travelling is a welcome relaxant. The owners are really lovely, we booked for 2 nights and stayed 5.
just wonderful people, excellent location, beautiful room with little balcony!!! we were sorry to leave!!!!
Loved Hostel Chasqui. Milton was there if you needed him for anything and very helpful, the map and directions were the best we had in our 3 month trip. The kitchen was a good communal area to chat and meet other travellers. The best for us was the terraces with amazing views of Otavalo, we ate breakfast and dinner outside, sometimes by candle light! Lovely hostel and Otavalo (after Quito) was a breath of fresh air. Fantastic DVD collection too.
I booked a night at Chasqui and ended up staying for three - they had clothes washing facilities there and a clothes line so it worked out. Milton was super helpful with information on stuff to to around town and outside of town. Super affordable private room with DVD player and movies. My only gripe was that the Internet was down for a day when I was there but they got it fixed before I left. I wish there were more hostels like this!
We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff member Milton was amazing and was so helpful and friendly. The room was good, shower was hot and the bed was comfortable. Not to mention some great views of the city!
The staff are amazing, the kitchen is spacious an homey and the roof top view is fantastic!

A good place to stay in a great location near the center with a very helpful and friendly owner.
There is nothing bad to say. You get a single private room for the price of a dorm bed, and with some luck it has a balcony and a small TV. They have a huge DVD collection and will put a dvd player into your room free of charge. The kitchen is on the rooftop and from its terrace you have a stunning view of Otavalo and its volcanoes. Kitchen facilities are good, two stoves and lots of utensils. The staff is amazing, nothing is a problem, we were able to invite friends over for dinner. Good wifi
Very nice place. Wonderful view on the city from the balcony and the terrass. Close to city center and very quiet. And Roberto is a great host, very very friendly and helpful. He gives us map and good advices for visits you have to do. I really recommend this hostel.
Milton was so helpful and friendly! Great hostel for the price. It was the only hostel we stayed in that offered a tv in the room, which is a nice comfort after days of traveling. Private bathroom, close walk to town/outdoor market. Thank you!

Fantastic view of otovalo from the roof areas. Nice place to stay, not many people there when we stayed, mostly couples, all fine for us. Short walk from main streets and plazas. Kitchen was ok, facilities to do your own laundry. Good value hostal! thank you chasqui!
Nice hostel, really nice staff. Only real downside for me, since I have to upload videos to youtube everyday is that the wifi is only available in the kitchen, and outside. Do keep in mind though that the kitchen is kind of 'the common room' or one of them and is a nice place to be at. Location was good, away from the noise but really close to centre Otavalo. They had free books to read and the bed and bathroom were really nice. Price was also good! Would absolutely recommend this host
