    What a hostel. The host Marco is an absolute gentleman and clearly a local hero. He was super accommodating and showed myself and another guest the best routes for hiking. The hostel itself is clean, modern but still holds its authenticity and history! Strongly recommend community hostel and once again a massive thank you to Marco and his staff. Best hostel I’ve stayed in in Ecuador hands down!

    this was definitely my best hostel in Ecuador. What a pity I only stayed 1 bight there. Very clean in the centre of Alausi within walking distance to bus terminal. Very clean room with excellent shower. Also Alausí itself has very nice surrounding

    We LOVED staying here! This might be the nicest hostel I have ever visited, it almost felt like a hotel. The rooms were beautiful, they offered a delicious breakfast for $3.50 and they even made our beds. The train wasn’t running but they highly recommended hiking to Devil’s Nose and the trail they recommended did not disappoint. The staff was very kind and helpful. We would highly recommend both Community Hostel and a visit to the small but beautiful town of Alausí.

    The train station is closed, and not much going on at the moment in Alausi. Still: THIS PLACE IS FREAKING AWESOME! Super clean, tidy, nice layout. They have local craft beers! Brand new beds and cozy blankets. Water pressure like out of fire hose. Actual real HOT HOT water! RAINFOREST shower head! My hosts Luis and Alex couldn’t have been nicer in what can’t be a great time for them. Helped me with a hike to Devil’s Nose, and let me check out late. Thanks so much!
