I stayed on the top floor of a building just below the pool on the way to the yoga center. I told the receptionist I had asthma and had trouble with musty smelling rooms on the first floor at other places and she happily accommodated me. The room was very clean and artsy and aesthetically appealing. The German food is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights recently. We decided to treat ourselves and go for the ensuite cabin with queen size bed and balcony. We are so happy we did. It turned out to be one of the best locations we have stayed in South America. The views across the valley are gorgeous. The restaurant serves a... More

We stayed for four days in June and loved this place. The room was spotless, the bathroom spacious, plenty of hot water and the views! The views from the restaurant are nothing short of spectacular. The staff si very kind and helpful. The best value in Ecuador.

This was a very comfortable place to stay. The dorms give you access to all the hotel amenities, which are much nicer than what you might find at a backpackers only type place. There are maps available for many different hikes of varying difficulty levels and beautiful scenery. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The food was quite good,... More

Don't miss out on this place. I've been meaning to write a review for a while, but all the other glowing reviews say it all. You will not find better value with better accommodations and services than Izhcayluma. I can't vouch for all of South America, but I can wholeheartedly say that this is the best in Ecuador.

Most rooms here are privates but there are a couple of dorms with very reasonable prices considering you get hotel-level service, buildings etc. The setting and hotel itself is one of the most beautiful places I've stayed in months. The bar area especially was very sociable in the evenings and the turnout for our almost-daily free yoga class was huge!... More

I opted for the more basic room, at $25 plus tax and service and it was just fine! The staff are very good too! The front desk will take care of your needs and does a good job. Views are nice. A taxi to or from town is $1.50. I would definitely stay again. If coming from Cuenca they will... More

We have been travelling in SA for 5 months and this is by far the BEST hostal we have stayed in. Location - set up in the hills, with spectacular views across the Vilcabamba valley, which you can enjoy from the restaurant. Rooms - incredible! Comfy beds, beautiful bathrooms with huge showers (like a hotel)! New mosquito nets on windows,... More

Beautiful facilities, lovely views and informative staff. The stars at night were beautiful and the free yoga on site was a boon. The breakfast at $3.90 is a bit steep for not including eggs. Otherwise, I highly recommend this place.
