We rented the casita. Hot water, good pressure, kitchenette and a fireplace!! The views are wonderful. There is a bell as soon as you arrive on property to ring for staff to come out. We had a reservation and arrived at midnight with no problems for check in. Manuel was right there to help with bags and kids into our... More

Just a 5-10 minute drive up one of the surrounding hills from the centre of Otavalo, Rose Cottage Hosteria is an extremely special place. Being able to see the peaks of three volcanoes, in different directions, on a clear day is not something you find at most Hosteria's. It is a perfect distance from town, enabling you to easily enjoy... More

I recently visited Ecuador (Tren Crucero Guayaquil-Quito) and the highlight of my trip was, I have to say, my stay in Otavalo at 'Rose Cottage Hosteria, consisting of 7-8 cottages with a small stream bisecting the property. Strategically placed for the many attractions in the area (including the Saturday Animal and Crafts markets at Otavalo) which I think is the... More

My wife and I recently stayed here with a group of friends for a week and were knocked out by its clean, fresh air, astonishing setting with long views, and characterful accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful and the simple rooms kept beautifully clean. We needed the roaring fire in the restaurant though on the first few nights whilst... More

About 3km out of town it's perfect for some peace and quiet. After arriving we had to wonder around for 10 minutes looking for a member of staff so we could check in. Eventually we found her and she didn't even know we had a reservation. After she offered us dinner at the restaurant for $7 and we were promised... More

As you say we have a wonderful location and most of our guests love the place, but rest assured that your comments have been taken on board and guests can expect much better treatment from our staff normally at Rose Cottage! We are making staff changes and are not at all happy about the way you were treated. Normally the... More

My husband and I recently planned a weekend getaway, specifically looking for "a cabin with a fireplace." Two friends decided to come along at the last minute and planned on seeing if there was a room available there. When we arrived, it was difficult to find someone to attend to us. When we did, there were so many keys on... More

I love this hostel. I have staid there two years in a row and would stay there again if I'm ever back in Otavalo. This is the most relaxing place I have staid at in all of Ecuador. The views are amazing and the staff is very friendly and helpful. On Saturday's they offer a free ride to the mercado... More

We stayed in Rose Cottage for several days in March, and cannot speak highly enough of it. The staff were curteous and efficient (and even got up to let us in at 3am after we'd had a difficult journey from Colombia), the owners, Mike & Rosa, were incredibly helpful in showing us the local lie of the land, and the...

I make it a policy to never write a negative review if I can't balance that with a positive one. With that, I want fellow travelers to be better informed when choosing a budget hostel near Otavalo. The recent reviews of others echo my husband and my experience in early June. Lonely Planet serves as a travel bible for many... More

Travellers please note! We are extremely sorry but also surprised about the state of the room given to this person on a recent visit to Rose Cottage. Clearly the room had not been properly prepared for the visit as is normally the case, and we will make sure this does not happen again. We think this is the first time... More
