We could not have asked for better service and hospitality from Jose and staff at this hostel. In a great location close to all amenities and transport right outside the front door. Room was spacious enough with TV and great wifi, cleaning daily and really hot water in the shower. Fridge available in upstairs communal kitchen and free coffee/tea. Jose was always helpful with information and put us in the right direction with helpful hints to make sure we had a good time in Otavalo. Our Spainish was very basic but Jose was patient and together we made things happen and picked up some more of the language. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would go back if in the area again.

(FYI this location has only private rooms; I believe their original location has the dorm rooms.) After a long day of traveling, including over 6 hours on my feet to wait to cross the border from Colombia, this hostel was such a delight. I felt safe and welcome as soon as I saw Jose smile, even when letting me in at 12:30am. And my room was orderly and clean and quiet--so needed when I felt so exhausted and depleted. The next day, when I checked in, Jose gave me a map of the town and explained what was going on and where. He's such a genuinely helpful and kind guy. The hostel is located right in the center of town, and it has a large and clean kitchen that opens onto a chill roof deck, where you can meet and chat with fellow travelers and stand in awe in view of one of the nearby volcanoes. Decent WiFi and hot water too, but note that it is a pretty basic and simple place, but it's good value for the money.

Nice, clean and comfortable hostel in the heart of otavalo. The rooms are designed in a authentic,local style. Special thanks to our host Marcello who made us feel at home and cared a lot about our well being by giving advices of beautiful places Around otavalo and Dinner Occasions. To sum the stay Up: it was more than (ah) ok!

Stayed here one night on a last minute stop in Otavalo. We first found ourselves at the El Andariego 1 but since they didn't offer rooms with private bathrooms, we headed here. Location was great - a block and a half from the main square, and within walking distance of most everything. Rooms - clean, decent sized. Bed was comfortable. Room was bright with large window looking directly onto the street (maybe a little loud at night, but to be expected) Bathroom was good, we had hot water for our shower. Common area - perhaps the hostel's weakest point, they have a fairly small social area although their upstairs kitchen is large and they have a nice terrace looking up into the surrounding hills. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking Staff - friendly. The first guy who checked in spoke only Spanish but the night guy spoke excellent English. Overall an excellent stay at a very reasonable price. It's nothing fancy, but we couldn't honestly ask anymore out of a hostel.

Such a lovely place. It's quiet so may not be the best if you are on you own, but for myself and my partner it was perfect. The staff will bend over backwards for you. I got very sick on my second day here and it was a great place to recover. They really looked out for me, recommending pharmacies and offering to call a doctor. Due to my illness we were unable to see much in Otavalo so we look forward to returning and staying here again.
