    We were so happy to have found this place up away from it all. The views and ambiance were incredible. The staff and food were awesome as well.

    Great place with amazing views. It’s only 5 mins out of town and so worth it for fresh air and being up in the mountains. Loads of hammocks where you can chill and take it all in. Staff are really friendly and the whole place feels like a home from home. One of the nicest and most unique places I’ve stayed at. Def recommend.

    Amazing hostel with incredible views. The place is run by women, and you could feel the loving feminine embrace all around us. The property is full of flowers and there are many common areas to hang while you take in the surrounding Andes mountains. We paid a for breakfast and dinner every night and it was delicious. They made us feel super special, lighting a fire every night and making my friend oregano tea when she didn’t feel well. Thank you for the warm hospitality and an unforgettable stay

    I loved my stay at rose cottage, staff are friendly, rooms clean and large, great breakfast included. Not a party atmosphere but most certainly a beautiful tranquil atmosphere. It’s a $3/4 taxi out of Otavalo. But it’s worth it, the view is absolutely spectacular and it’s a great place to unwind for a few days.

    Overall the hostel was good. They checked us into our room when we arrived early which was nice. The food was of a good standard and there were good social areas to meet and chat with other travellers. Unfortunately things such as the jacuzzi require 24 hour notice and payment to use which is not advertised and we found disappointing.

    This place is not for backpackers!! It's got nice flowers and a great view but that's all it got. It's so far from the village and it takes very lobg to get a taxi. Don't try to walk because there are many groups of angry dogs. The staff was never at the reception when I needed something and I had a bad experience. My door broke so they changed my room and it took over 2 hours to get my key... The food was awful! They serve it so late and it's expensive.

    The bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on, it just sank in the middle. Apparently this was the same in the dorm room. The rooms were damp and cold. The shower room is grubby and paint is peeling. The food was overpriced and there were no snacks available and it’s far from town. The WiFi did not work in the room and hardly worked in the communal areas, you can’t even connect to the internet. They attempted overcharge me when I left pretending I hadn’t paid a deposit.

    After a 24hr bus journey we wanted to head to bed quickly, however checking in took so long as the geezer at the desk couldn’t speak English. After telling him for half an hour that we had a private room booked he insisted we were in at 11 man dorm. After finally realising we had a private room, we went in and there were dead flies everywhere and it smelt damp. We decided to go back to the dorm where our bathroom window was smashed and the beds were uncomfortable and it was very cold.
