Always the buzzer to come in so felt safe. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi was average and wasn't always working even in the hot spots. Breakfast was also fine, was on terrace which was a nice touch. Not far from bus station and market square.

Located a short walk from the bus station, and the market, there's nothing wrong with Rincon del Viajero. Staff at front desk were cheerful and helpful, the room was comfortable and clean. Shared bath was adequate. There's a nice courtyard, and common room with a fireplace, and a rooftop patio with nice views. Breakfast was good, served upstairs in the... More

Nice hostel - all the facilities and at a reasonable price. The elderly man at reception was really lovely too. Rooms are nice and clean and showers are good. Breakfast is included too and is not too bad

Really great place, no beer allowed inside! it's quiet and peaceful. The owners and everybody working there are the friendliest people ever. P.e. I had to leave at 7 and breakfast starts at 7.30. Without me having to ask they offered to have breakfast ready before 7. The Booking.com price is for 2 people, if staying alone you pay half,... More

very nice stay, twin room was super comfortable with loads of heavy blankets for the cool nights. Great location 2 blocks from the market and 2 blocks from the bus station. Breakfast is either eggs, granola or fruit salad, all with bread and tea/coffee, not a huge portion but adequate.

Returned 2 years later and the place is better. The rooms are really clean, great staff and owner. Nice little room with a fireplace where you can visit with friends. Top has a restaurant where you get a burger, drinks, desert, plus breakfast in the morning.

Very cute hostel with nice and helpful staff (Edgar the night receptionist is very friendly). It is very well located in Otavalo and the prices are reasonable. The dorms are clean and the showers are hot! There is not a lot of people too, which makes it a nice place to relax and get good sleep.

Stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. They have a fireplace, tv room, hammocks on the roof. Good rate with breakfast included. Lovely courtyard and very close to bus terminal. They kindly let our friends (who weren't staying there) leave a couple of bags with them whilst we all visited the market. Staff were really smiley all the time.... More

Grimy grimy grimy. Stayed there in 2010 and left because of the grime. Revisited last month as a tour guide researching and it was still as dark and grimy as ever. Dark mushy rooms. Unatractive court yard, partly parking space. Long narrow plot with high walls and weird layout. No go!

The service here is very friendly, I travelled from the north coast and arrived late at night - an hour after my expected arrival time - and the owner was patiently waiting for me! The rooftop is really nice with hammocks for chilling out, there is free baggage storage, and the wifi can be a little slow but I was... More
