We stayed 3 nights during a climbing tour organized through Gulliver's travel agency. Absolutely loved it. The food was excellent, with generous portions at breakfast and lunch. We were too exhausted each evening to try the dinners, but the was an attractive and reasonably priced menu. PapaGayo supplied us with great packed lunches for our climbing/traveling days - the homemade... More

Really enjoyed the peaceful setting of the gardens and watching lamas hang out in the gardens in the morning. Staff went out of their way for each and every single guest. I booked all the... More

My friends and I stayed here as apart of our Cotopaxi/ Illiniza Norte climb package. It was much more luxurious than the kind of hostels we were accustomed to which made our stay here feel more like a vacation. The rooms are very clean and modern, the staff is very friendly and speak perfect english. My only disappointments were that... More

We stayed only one night between a trip to Cotopaxi volcano and Quilotoa loop hike. Very spacious rooms, quiet surroundings. The breakfast was pretty good as well with several choices of dishes from scrambled eggs to pancakes. There are also jacuzzis available but we didn't try. The staff is very helpful and friendly. This hosteria is frequented by climbers as... More

The beds were very comfortable, the showers beautifully strong and hot (when the hot water was working) and the food.. Divine! We stayed at the beginning of our trip and since my baggage was delayed on the flight I had... More
