I stayed 2 nights at the Hostal Chasqui. It was a very quiet hostal and I didn't see many other guests the full 2 days I was there. The wifi was weak in my room and the hot water pressure was very low. I enjoyed the access to washer and the balcony.

We really liked hostal Chasqui in Otavalo! The service was really nice, we got a tv on our room and they have a lot of movies to watch. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking and also function as a common room. We are backpackers but with the lack of hostels in Otovalo this hotel was the perfect alternative!... More

We stayed one night here and also met some fellow friends staying at the same hostel. Roof terraces to go out and have a look at the entire city. It took me back to my childhood times when I would go to the roof of my home to look at the area. The person who gave us the room, explained... More

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
