My sister and I went backpacking and this was one of our favorite hostels! It has the most amazing view and was such a charming place to stay. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The restaurant on site is also a bonus! The only thing I can say is that finding a taxi at the top of... More

I have just talked with them on the phone, I called to make a reservation and ask for the camping place, after telling me to go all the way to otavalo to see if I like the place (instead of just saying is a beautiful place for camping) she put me on hold (very unrespecfully) and after 1 minute she...

Brief Summary: Inexpensive hostel with a camping space and stunning (!) views. Fast and free WiFi, clean and damp-free rooms. They have a small animal farm (with Lama!) there. Highly recommended if you are looking for a quite place. Things I liked: - Excellent place to relax and quiet down, if you are hoping for a moment of reflection, -... More

The hostel is beautifully located outside of otavalo, I would definitely recommend staying here! There is a beautiful rose garden, and hammocks with great views of the mountains. The restaurant is cozy with a fire place in the corner. The local desert with tomate de arbol is delicious. Breakfast is included, it's big and there's definitely enough coffee!

What a beautiful, beautiful place. We arrived long after we were supposed to, having had a tiring trip from Colombia. Some time around midnight, and they waited up for us, and even offered us dinner! To wake up in the morning to the scenery was a real treat. The staff were so friendly - and I mean friendly in that... More

We read about Hosteria Rose Cottage in the lonely planet and checked out their webpage. After seeing the promotion video, we decided to stay there for some couple of days. We booked the Cabaña Cayambe. OK, it's some kind of tiny but very lovely and it has the best view. Staff is very friendly all the time. If you want... More

The employees are friendly and helpful. Free breakfast. Middle budget for a college traveler, I paid $16 a night, which was great! Good for everyone, including families, and couples. Comes with an incredible view of Otavalo which is a beautiful city and the stunning Volcán Imbabura. They also had puppies around the property, of which I am a fan. The... More

We arrived late after a long journey and were greeted with warm hospitality which was excellent. An amazing location which is perfect for any traveller and the facilities are great. The scenery is quintessentially Ecuadorian, if you plan to stay in Otoval, stay here!

We only stayed one night, but it was lovely. The views here are incredible - incredibly relaxing. The room was lovely too - a four poster bed and two small beds upstairs for the kids. The host was very friendly and nice, and happy to help with anything. My only negative is that it's a bit outside the town, so... More

We had the unfortunate experience of having my husband's backpack stolen on the bus from Quito to Otavalo. So after a lengthy time with the police, we arrived at the Hosteria somewhat frazzled...to be greeted by a cheery & sympathetic Mark. He was extremely helpful & made every effort to make us feel at home. Because it was a quiet... More
