A ghost town. Not like the pictures. No common area - only on the roof in the kitchen. The advertised bar that looks lively in the pictures, is shut down, dark, a true ghost town. Nice staff and fast internet though (although, my room was right next to the router)

This hostel is located just few minutes walk from the centre of town. We were greeted by the very friendly Milton who gave us a map and explained where everything is. Hot water was fine, wifi not so much. There's a good kitchen for cooking and a nice terrace to sit out on. Lots of good panaderias nearby for buying... More

I won't repeat all the positives in previous reviews. We stayed a total of 8 nights in two visits in two rooms. Because we had a reservation made earlier we paid $24 for two when others were charged the apparently new price of $30 for two. I encourage pushback on the price increase. The value is poor at $30. Some... More

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
