The hostel is located at the northern end of the village Chugchilan, the best starting point for hiking’s on the Quilotoa Loop. Hostal Cloud Forest is an eco-friendly, clean and welcoming hostel, runned by a lovely ecuadorian family, that is well-known for its delicious food as well as its great location. It is the perfect place to stay for your trip.

    Really great place to stay after a long day of hiking. Tasty meals, friendly staff. It was so nice when a staff member asked us if we wanted for him to warm our room . He started fire in wood burning stove and it felt so wonderful.

    The location was perfect. Accommodations were great. It would’ve been helpful if the staff could’ve spoke a little bit more English but that’s not their fault I should be able to speak better Spanish. I would stay here again without question. The food was good the helpfulness and cheerfulness of the staff was great

    Really nice place to stay for a night when doing the Quilotoa loop. The hostal is massive and has a sick games room so its a great place to meet people after a day of hiking. The food is pretty good and the rooms are very cozy (lots of sick hammocks too!).

    The staff here were lovely. A group of us doing the Quilotoa loop were freezing at night so the owner brought his own space heater into our dorm room which was so kind! The food is great too!

    This hostel is a go-to for people hiking the Quilotoa Loop. Atmosphere is nice, cute hammocks on the terraces and WiFi. The staff are also very helpful with giving further details of the hike. Our dorm room didn't lock though, nor did the bathroom and there weren't any lockers I was aware of.

    Nice location and good food. However they upgraded my room to a private room, the bad was unbelievably hard, so i was glad to use the extra blankets to lay a bit softer. I noticed when i came back from hiking somebody has gone trough my stuff. Although i had nothing valuable in the room and nothing was missing its never a pleasent experience noticing somebody did that. I made the bed myself in the morning but i found the bedsheets messed up when i came back.
