It looks like the typical case of: being on lonely planet = expensive and poor service. 30$ for a private with bathroom and breakfast. The room was extremely small, old, not pleasant, cold and with a window looking towards the patio where everybody is passing by (noisy), so you need to keep the curtains closed which makes it a very...

We stayed for three nights and very much enjoyed it. We had a double room for $30 with own bathroom. The rooms are quite small but there are plenty of communal areas such as tv room & a fabulous roof terrace with great views of the mountains. The location is perfect, just a couple of blocks to the market. Loads... More

We stayed three nights in Room 6 (private double + bathroom). The room was clean, spacious had a desk, wardrobe and TV. The bathroom was clean and the shower had hot water. Wi-fi connection was fine in the room and reliable. The common areas are pretty nice: a fireplace downstairs, a cafeteria and roof terrace that serves cocktails in the... More

El Rincon del Viajero was just fine. It´s a nice cozy place near town. It isn´t exactly as advertised though. The website mentions a "garden terrace with hammocks" so I envisioned an outdoor space, but there wasn´t one. And no hammocks to be found. The setup of the rooms made it easy to get to know your neighbors, but it... More

We stayed in Otavalo for two night in this hostal. The hostal is close to the bus station. The rooms are simple but clean and confortable; however, the bathroom started smelling after the first night; that is the only inconvenient we had with the place. We did not say anything until we left so they could have done something about... More

I can not say anything bad about this hostal. Staff were really helpful, room, shower, free breakfast and lovely communal room with an open fire were all excellent. Location was also perfect and check out was not until one pm.

Our family of four found this charming little hotel on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. It is close to the wonderful Saturday market at Plaza de Poncho and there are several good restaurants within walking distance. (The Mexican restaurant on the nearby corner was extra good) Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was small but neat and very... More

We didn't have a reservation in Otavalo and this was the first lodging we got to from the bus station. We were lucky! This place has a good location a few blocks away from the Saturday market. It's clean and quiet. We had a room with its own bathroom, though many of the rooms shar the bathroom at the end... More

We stayed 3 nights here in a triple room. The hostel is really pretty with an inner sunny courtyard, a restaurant area, rooftop patio and a common TV room. While we were there they were renovating the rooftop to make the restaurant up there. It was a 5 minute walk to the market and the bus station so location was... More

This is a lovely little place and we stayed here for 3 nights. We paid $30 a night including breakfast for 2 people. The room was nice, lots of warm blankets and plenty of hot water, which is important in Otavalo. The location is great and quiet, right in town, just a 5 minute walk from everything. The price of...
