The room was clean and pleasant with an expansive view over the town. Wifi worked well. There was a TV, but no English channels. We were the only guests and maybe because of this we had the feeling that the staff were prepared to do the bare minimum necessary for us. We had booked a room in advance, but they... More

The room was noisy and had mold, the bed a rock, and the pillows thin. Asked for chicken for dinner, we're served fish that I did not eat. The lentils and rice weren't even up to par. Breakfast was also substandard. Paid upfront for two nights, left after one. We're reimbursed part of our second's night payment. Room did have... More

Hostel community run and has great views of town, rooms are roomy, firm beds, showers hot when we were there. Breakfast so so, I think it's a new karaoke bar down the way,... More

Rooms are spacious and in immaculate condition. The hot water is only just hot enough. Breakfast can be a bit disorganised but overall it is a small inconvenience. I enjoyed the place and... More

I spent the weekend in Saraguro and stayed here for one night. It was absolutley perfect. The setting a few minutes walk out of town up on a hill provides great views of Saraguro and the surrounding mountains. I'd recommend first taking the $1.00 taxi there, then once you have your bearings, it an easy walk down to the main... More
