A beautiful location with amazing facilities, it's a one of a kind type of hostel. The only downside was a member of staff was beyond rude and condescending at times. Perhaps because it was Christmas there were extra pressures but at times the treatment of guests beggared belief. An amazing place all the same.


Secret Garden Cotopaxi was my favourite hostel in Ecuador and one of my favourite in South America. The scenery is beautiful, beds and rooms super comfortable and although the jacuzzi is a little small it's perfect to soak your bones. The staff were great, social and friendly without being overbearing like at other hostels. The food was great and having meals altogether created an awesome social environment. The only criticism would be that it's abit expensive, especially the activities.


The absolute best hostel in South America. The price is expensive, but it is beyond worth it. The staff is incredible and the experience is one in a million. We were so sad leaving! Such a cozy and comfortable environment. Makes you feel at home right away!


I enjoyed spending a few days at Secret Garden Cotopaxi. The staff is very nice, the food is very yummy. I didn't have a chance to do any activities because the volcano erupted. It s a great place to meet travelers and exchanged our story. I will definitively recommend staying at Secret Garden. Victor and others will make you feel welcome. One suggestion will be to serve local food rather than western foods...
