Everything was fine until check out. This is when the owner spring an extra "12% tax". This was even after showing her the confirmation from Hostelworld stating that all taxes and fees are included. That kind of soured us on the whole place.

Don't let the location put you off - this is an amazing place to stay in Otavalo. It's a $3 taxi ride to/from the hostel, or a 30 min walk. If you're there on a Saturday a free transfer to the market is provided. Breakfast is excellent and for $7 you can buy a dinner in the evening - nice big portions too! Rosa, the owner is a lovely woman and goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your tine there. There are a variety of hikes into the surrounding valleys clearly explained in the hostel too
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
