    Secret Garden Cotopaxi is the gold standard of hostels. The food served was delicious & good portion sizes. Great views of the area. Clean & spacious rooms. The atmosphere & sense of community was perhaps the best part of our stay here. The staff is super friendly and very helpful with organizing activities and travel plans with everyone staying. They helped us split a taxi to the airport with another couple to significantly reduce the cost.
