I had the pleasure of staying in the Black Sheep Inn for 4 nights. Edmundo greeted me at the door and always made sure I had what I needed. I stayed in the bunk house on the top floor. The beds are comfortable and the views of the whole lodge are stunning. Food is vegetarian but very high quality. Edmundo does a superb job of including the community with any request the tourist want. Hiking and horse riding with a local guide is superb. Humberto the horse guide was very proud of his origins and what they had to share with us. Lake Quilitoa is one of the attractions and hiking back to the hostel will make you feel as if you have worked long and hard. Highly recommended if you are looking for tranquility, great service and food and are interested in ecolodges. Their toilet system is superb.
