The young man working when we arrived greeted us with a warm, friendly smile and showed us to our room up top where you can get a nice sweeping view of Otavalo. He made sure we had everything we needed and provided us a small but detailed map of Otavalo with important places marked on it. The room was clean... More

I arrived almost at midnight because of long bus ride. But the worker welcome me when I arrived and he's really friendly. The terrace has a good view of Otavalo city and it's close to the centre. They only have private room and it was very comfy. Definitely recommend.

Loved this hostel! We had a last minute change of plans in our group and the workers were very accommodating. As soon as we got there, the on duty staff gave us a map of the city with very clear directions on how to get to the market(s). It was a nice location, and the rooms were nice. The only... More

The hostal is up the hill so you got a great wiev of the city. But its really not a steep or long walk to get there. You get a warm welcome and they explain you the map of the city and give you a lot of information about the activities around (incl. prices) Otavalo. You can do there nice... More

This is one of those places where customer service trumps all else...though the accommodations were also great (pretty clean, simple dorms, shared bathroom), i was very appreciative of the service we received. The guy who was working was very attentive and cordial. The hostel is ideally located, and has a nice view in the terrace. There is also a kitchen... More

As other reviews have noted, the owner Roberto is a real plus. He not only shares suggestions about where to go, but practical information about how to get there. The hostal is an easy walk to the bus terminal as well as to the major commercial area. When I was there, the kitchen was clean and had more than adequate... More

We arrived into Otavalo and were absolutely blown away by this hostel. Largely due to the kindness and attention we received from the owner Roberto and his sidekick. You can tell that he is extremely proud of his town and will walk you through all the points on his hand-made map from the amazing view from the hostel'a rooftop. Apart... More

The pro's: Decent location, loads of good information from staff, lovely roof terraces with amazing views, comfortable room with a TV and DVD player (massive library of films to watch), good WiFi everywhere. The con's: Kitchen was pretty grubby. Also, for two of the three nights we stayed a group who decided it should become party central until god knows... More

I have no complaints about this place. Good value for money for a room with a balcony and dvd player. The kitchen is big and quite well exquipped, and the view from the roof is amazing. The owner is very helpful and nice, he has a lot of information on the local area which he offered to us when we... More
