A gem of a place. A warm welcome. Tasty food. Clean and comfortable room with excellent bathroom and really hot water. A duvet on the bed was the icing on the cake for us. It has a lovely atmosphere. There is a cosy sitting room with log burner and the guests all eat together -great for stimulating conversation. Don't miss... More

The lovely village of Guamote is certainly a place where you can witness the "real" Ecuador. We were lucky to arrive on a Thursday and experience their market day, which was unlike other markets we had seen. Eva, Hannah and Tom at the Inti Sisa made sure our stay was comfortable. The room was bright and spacious, with new bathrooms... More

The new decor is beautiful and modern amenities blend with Ecuadorian fabrics and flair. A restful, full service experience for the budget traveler who wants value for money. The staff are exceptionally caring and responsive.

What a place! Was planning to spend two nights here but within minutes of arriving had already requested to stay another night! The trip was booked for us through Bamba Experiences, through which we are travelling South America, we loved the place. Very welcoming from the Belgian volunteers Eva, Hannah and Tom and the local Guamote workers who made the... More

I only have great things to say about this place. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. This was the nicest place we stayed in our 25 days in Ecuador. The staff is very nice and their food is excellent. The Thursday market was overwhelming! This was one of our favorite experiences in the country that we'll never forget.

This place is definitely worth adding to any trip in the area. I stayed for two nights in the dorm and did the mountain biking experience. I was impressed by the school and the hotel. I felt great about spending money there as it went straight back into developing the community. It was also the closest I got to local... More

We were the only Americans in Guamote during our stay! We came for the authentic Thursday market, where the locals buy, sell and trade everything from live animals to toothpaste. It was incredible to see. Our accommodations exceeded my expectations. Don't expect a 4-star hotel, but you will find clean rooms, a friendly staff and delicious home-cooked meals. There are... More

We recently stayed at Inti Sisa on a Thursday, visiting the Guamote Market. The highlight of our trip! It is so special, walking around between all those indigenous people. We saw only one other tourist! This market is genuine and real! Inti Sisa is a volunteer project. To finance the project the hostel was started a couple of years ago.... More
