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

This was our little bit of luxury on a primarily back packing hostel trip, but my was it worth it! 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

I decided to make tourism within my country at Easter and I found the PapaGayo Machachi inn, is very close to Quito, about 45 minutes. I booked a room for my two children and me, horseback riding and a tour to the Cotopaxi volcano . We arrived around 9 am, the staff looked after me very well and I had... More

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).
