This location has a lot of potential, but needs updating. Out of the way if you don't have a vehicle ($3 taxi ride each way to and from town). Initial we booked 4 nights (first night deposit through PayPal) at Cabana Cayambe (converted play house), but it was cramped and the toilet didn't worked, so we moved into a room... More

We are so sorry you didnt enjoy your stay. We have seven different houses at different prices and fine views at our rural location 3 km outside Otavalo and the cosy little wooden chalet Cabana Cayembe is very popular , with its double bed upstairs and small sitting room downstairs both enjoying the best views on the estate. The ensuite... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Rose Cottage and loved it. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and affordable with a great view of the valley. The location of the hosteria makes it a very quiet place for a weekend getaway. There are some beautiful hikes around the area of the cottage and the staff is very helpful... More

Its just as well this place has the most spectacular views in Otavalo from its grounds as you wont want to spend any time in the room. At $40 a night its cheap although you wont enjoy being there. Dinners are $8 and good. The included breakfast of 1 egg is rubbish though. Guadalupe, the lady who does all the... More

We are glad you enjoyed the beautiful views from our place , liked Guadalupe and found your stay good value. Its easy to get a cab for the 10 minute ride to and from Rose Cottage, and of course the staff can use the office phone if they need to call one. We are not sure why the office phone... More

This is an amazing place with an epic location!!! We had alot of fun while staying here. It is a great place to relax. It is not in town so if you are only going to hang out in otavalo this may not be the best place for you. There was a little bit of confusion because of our limited... More

Outside of Otavalo means this place is a lot quieter than most. It also means that your view will be of mountains and valleys as opposed to streets and walls. The rooms have nice beds and hot showers, and windows with views which make you not want to leave your bed. The hosteria is on the way to a waterfall... More

This place is very cute and has the most scenic setting of any hostel I've ever stayed at. There are plenty of quiet places to sit with beautiful views out over the countryside (and of the volcanoes on a clear day). There are also a few nearby hikes. The food was very good although expensive - you pay for the... More

If you want peace and quiet surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in northern Ecuador, this is the place to head. Its location a 15 minute cab ride from town seems to deter some travellers, i.e. it can be a little on the empty side, but the lively British-Colombian owners more than make up for that. The staff...

First and foremost, if you are a backpacker only coming to Otavalo for Saturday markets, do not stay at this hostel. It is far from town, not walkable with bags, and there are better, much closer and cheaper options in city center. The hostel is perfect for a couple or someone on an extended stay in Otavalo, but not ideal,... More

As is perfectly clear on the websites, we are a beautiful Hosteria located 3 km outside Otavalo. We provide free transportation to the Otavalo market on Saturday mornings, it takes about 10 minutes in one of our cars so its a good place from which to visit the Saturday market. Lots of people find it a very pleasant way to... More

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.
