Papagayo is a cozy small cottage in the middle of equatorian Andes. It's very comfortable and the staff is really amazing. They were always extremely nice, helpful and flexible. The room was clean and comfortable, and the common area and restaurant are perfect to relax after a full day of sports activity.

A friend and I stayed here while doing an 8-day mountaineering trip during Dec/Jan. The lodge is a quick trip from Quito, and is close to tons of great hikes and climbs. The lodge itself was cozy, with plenty of space to relax both inside and out (including walking around to check out the various animals on the property). The... More

staff is great, atmosphere is great, setting is great...It's not a 5 star hotel, but if you are not looking for a pretentious place, this place is simply the best. The Canelazo served at dinner is amazing too, And all those dogs running around are beautiful. Tousr with Gulliver agency, directly related to the Hosteria, are all very good too.

This is a fantastic little hotel south of Quito. It's not far from Volcan Cotopaxi making is a perfect stopping point if you're going to visit the volcano. And speaking of that, do not miss Cotopaxi. The park is free, you do not need a guide. If you have a car just drive up to the highest parking lot and... More

It doesn't look that invited when you first see it but once in and around, you are surprised with the comfort and style. The rooms are well decorated, nice restaurant, excellent food and friendly staff. It's an active farm so you can find a lot of animals and activity around this hosteria. The location is excellent if you want to... More

The hosteria PapaGayo is the perfect starting point for tours in the Cotopaxi region. Lovely rooms, good food (try the breakfast with pancakes, it is amazing) and a very friendly and helpful staff (thanks Christina for making us feel at home).

We stayed four nights in the Papagayo Hosteria to have a base for our mountain acclimatization. A well maintained cozy place to enjoy and relax after tiring mountaineering days. The staff is outstanding in hospitality and and attention to their guests. Very good kitchen and many other activities in their program (e.g. horseback riding, mountain biking etc.) Thanks for a...

We stayed here because it was closer to Cotopaxi and Quilotoa where we had booked day trips, and because we much prefer the beautiful countryside to staying in Quito with the traffic, noise, and long commutes. The staff was very helpful, the food was delicious, and it was a wonderful place to come back to each night after a long... More

I stayed at Papagayo in August this year and booked trips to Cotopaxi, Quilotoa and The Rose farm, next to the Hosteria, which were wonderful! They have very good food, great staff and great mountain views as well as beautifull surroundings where you can go out for a walk or ride bikes they rent there (not cheap though, 10 dollars... More

We had a wonderful stay at Papagayo. Beautiful location with mountain views, the hosteria is a good place for relaxing, horse riding, climbing Cotopaxi and more. The staff are great people. The food was delicious. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable, and there's also a fun jacuzzi(: I truly recommend this place, one of the best in South America!
