A hostel with so much potential but quite a few improvements needed to get there. When we arrived the lady offered us dinner for $7 and we were offered a large plate of food, she also said you could buy an array of drinks and snacks. When dinner came we were given a small plate of curry. We tried to buy drinks and the only soft drinks they had was a glass of coke. I asked for some water, and bearing in mind this hostel is 3km from the centre, they didn't have any drinking water, not even bottle
Awesome spot right on the country side. A little ways outside of otavalo but certainly worth it if you're looking for peace and quiet
Beautiful location, not in the centre but the owner drove us to the market for no extra charge so location wasn't an issue, and the beautiful surroundings made it well worth it. The staff (particularly the woman who owns it) were terrible though, the lady seemed grumpy the whole time, not welcoming at all. And she was never around. A guest arrived in the morning with no staff whatsoever to help her checkin and it was pouring with rain, terrible service. No one around.
The place, the rooms and the scenery is really charming! But it comes with a price, keep in mind that anything you want to do is an added price to it (all the taxi rides, and even such a thing as having to pay to use the kitchen..) Plus 12% tax added, dont forget that.
