Clean but very very rundown. Mushy rooms. Also quite expensive. Rooms are very noisy so sleeping depends on the decency of your neighbours. Low street noise though which is rare in otavalo. Staff is friendly professional and honest. They take reservations and make no fuzz about singles in double rooms when you are traveling with a group. Included breakfeast good... More

The Hostel is located in a good position very close to main square and restaurants. Rooms are set around a garden area which is pleasant but this means you have to walk outside if needing bathroom facilities at night. We stayed on 2 occasions and both rooms were quite small and noisy. The first one was on the outside and... More

Breakfast is one of the best i have done! 3 types of breakfast. Really nice and relaxing garden! The 3 persons at the reception are very nice and helpful. The lady who's got a son (noisy!) should not shout to her collegue in front of everybody! Nevertheless, i would recommand it!

The overall look and feel of the place is very nice, with much more character than most of the places I checked out in Otavalo. The price however was far too much for what were extremely noisy rooms given the price of nearby hostels. Due to the thin roof on the room, it sounded like the people walking past and... More

This was our fifth time to stay here over the past five years. It's not a 5-star hotel, but it gets 10 stars for its charm. The breakfast included with the room is terrific. The owner is warm and personable.

I was here for one night a week ago and the internet connection was so week that it was totally ineffective although they advertise wifi and in the morning at 5.30 there was barely tepid water and definitely not hot. When requesting a second small cup of coffee for breakfast in the morning, we were advised we would have to... More

The hostal is well located just around the corner from the market and the plaza, it also offers a very nice breakfast. However there is not commun area apart from the outside patio, the rooms were basic and a bit cold.

Just like most reviewers described this hostal has a great courtyard complete with hammocks, fireplace (don't know when they actually light it though..) and lots of plants, making it an excellent place to relax after a long morning of bartering at the nearby market (2 blocks from the hostal to the central market). If you have a room near the... More

Not what I was expecting when I booked a hostal in touristy Otavalo for 12 dollars a night. It's a beautiful hostal with rooms situated around an inner courtyard filled with trees and hammocks. Breakfast was good, the water pressure was excellent. Nice people in charge.
