Property Description

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.
We have everything you need: huge breakfast and dinner (incl. gluten-free, vegetarian and/or vegan options), lunch-boxes, free wifi, hot water, game-room (incl. billiard, table tennis, football-table,...), bar & cafe, reading-room, lounge with wood-burning stove, terrace with hamocks, mini-market, hiking-information/maps, laundry-service, transportation-services,...
Most of our guests come by foot on the famous Quilotoa Loop Hike. But there are as well buses coming to the village: 3 times a day from Latagunca. The hike from Quilotoa to Isinlivi, passing the River Toachi and Chugchilan is considered to be one of the most beautiful trails in Ecuador.
For those who have time, a 2-nights stay is perfect to go horseriding to the cloud forest, inca ruins and/or cheese factory with a knowledgeable guide and discover more about this lovely region. You can rent horses to go to Quilotoa or Isinlivi too.
The rooms are decorated with wood and stone. The beds have a few blankets to keep you really warm by night. Each room has a private bathroom with hot water shower. The entrance door to each room can be closed with a key.

    This was a great place to stay during the Quilotoa Trek. They gave me and hiking buddy our own dorm bc they had extra rooms. Tons of hammocks everywhere and they come light a fire in the dorm rooms once the temperature starts to drop. Dinner and breakfast were very filling and satisfying, veggie friendly. They have a nice little shop at reception for snacks and drinks at the hostel or on the road. ¡Gracias!

    The hostel is located in the heart of the village, which is quite convenient. The staff was lovely, the establishment is clean and well decorated, on top of the games room - loved it! They have a vintage babyfoot table and pool tables, which I loved! The food included in the room was tasty and perfect for travellers on their hiking journey to Quilotoa. We loved our experience and the views are amazing.

    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!).

    Really lovely hostel. Did a three course meal for dinner which was really tasty (we are both vegan and they catered for us!) and also included breakfast. They wrapped up our breakfast the night before we left on our hike the next day as we wanted to leave early.Nice spacious rooms with fireplaces that the staff will light for you in the evenings which will keep you toasty and warm! Lovely staff very helpful and friendly. They do have wifi but it’s not the best because of the area but that’s ok.

    Very nice hostel with a great vibe. The staff are all very service oriented and friendly. The breakfasts are huge and quite good, as are the dinners...much needed for the long days of hiking in the Andes. Showers are hot, rooms are comfortable, view is lovely. There are plenty of common areas to relax and either join a group,play pool or pingpong, or find a little alone time. My only suggestion would be that they clean the floor in the game room. It was really yucky! But I loved Cloud Forest!
