First and foremost, if you are a backpacker only coming to Otavalo for Saturday markets, do not stay at this hostel, it's far from town, not walkable with bags. Situated in a mountain setting and the staff are helpful. Rooms can get cold at night. There was no hot water in the dorm, maybe because no one was staying here and the gas hadn't been used. Breakfast was nice, though not filling. They charge $2 for a ride into Otavalo, not for the Saturday market. There are better options in Otavalo.
Location far from town centre but it has great view. Staff don't speak English. Owner speaks English but she wasn't always around. Dorm room and toilet were clean. Worth the price but a little confusion about tax as the confirmation i got from hostelworld clearly mentioned 'tax included' but because hostelworld didn't charge 12% deposit (because i have deposit from flexible protection) the owner charge me 12% tax.
Probably the most beautiful hostel I've stayed at. Very sweet owner and good food. A little far from the center but the owner offers rides. Only complaint is no wifi in the rooms.
