Pululahua is run by a great team. Everyone was so attentive, from smiling Victor who picked us up in his wonderful yellow jeep and yellow wellies to match, to Renato who advised us where to look for birds and butterflies. Food was great (thank you Paula!) with lots of delicious fruit juices. We had a very relaxing stay here and on one night when it was a little chilly it was lovely to be offered a hot water bottle! How fantastic to wake up to the sounds of hummingbirds outside your cabin, fighting for dominance of the feeder. We explored as much as we could on foot, but to come back and sit on the patio surrounded by hummingbirds, especially Black-tailed trainbearers zipping through the air, was something a bit special. One day when we had had a long walk, Victor had got the jacuzzi going for us which was really thoughtful of him seeing as we hadn't asked - he had dropped us off in the morning and knew how far we had to walk back, mostly uphill! We chose this hostal due to it's eco-friendly criteria and we weren't disappointed. It was a pleasure to stay somewhere where the environment matters. Well done and keep up the good work!
