Rooms are spartan and packed with beds, but that's true for everywhere in Ecuador as they all like to pack their rooms to the brim with beds. I was lucky enough to have hot water for about 1 minute then it turned to freezing. I had to wait another 10 minutes for some more hot water. So keep that in mind. Loud (French, like usual) neighbors in a wooden house doesn't really make for comfort. Otherwise it's a remote location and it's a decent room for a very low cost if you can snag it under $20. There are other similar places nearby for a similar setting and cost so you're not limited to this one. The location is near the entry booth so a slight 5-7 minute walk from the lake. Although when I was here they closed the lake shore path like the hour I arrived, due to COVID-19.
After all the negative reviews I read, I was a bit hesitant about my stay here. I need not be. I was greeted warmly upon arrival and shown to my room, which was a cozy basic room. The place was spotlessly clean. I didn't opt for the meals because of the negative reviews but I saw what the others ate and think it was great value of well prepared local food. I would opt for the meals if I return. In the evening, the fire was started in the stove in the room, making it nice and cozy. It stayed warm throughout the night. There were tons of blankets in case it wasn't warm enough. The wood used is very fast burning though, so the fire was essentially out in about 15 minutes. For those who reviewed badly, remember this is a remote location without all the trimmings of life in a first world big city--be thankful for a warm cozy room when it is sleeting outside.…
Runa Wasi was the perfect rest stop for the night after hiking the Quilotoa loop. There are warm fireplaces in each room and they have a great community room for eating, enjoying tea/coffee, reading, writing, etc. The beds are comfortable and although they did not have warm showers, they heated water for us in a basin to wash with which was very nice. Thanks for a great stay!
The rooms are very cold (it is Quilatoa, after all!) and the water in the shower was freezing, but the staff was friendly and did their very best to ensure we were comfortable, from making us a fire multiple times in our room to bringing us a giant bucket of hot water to bathe with. They even accommodated my vegan diet! An excellent place to stay while hiking around the area.
Not many options in this town. Room and bed were fine. Quite cold room. There is a fireplace unit and they provide wood but it is still a cold night (we were there in July). The people do not speak English but they are very nice and they try very hard. We had warm water once we asked them to fix it (which they promptly did). You will want to do the lake and move on. Dinner and breakfast were included. It was basic and fine - we are not foodies.
