I had a chance in July to end a month-long trip to Ecuador & the Galapagos with a day trip to the Hostel Pululahua to do some horse back trail riding.
The owner was not only extremely knowledgeable about the area and it's environmental importance, but was friendly and instructional as well.
Though we only went for the day to ride horses, we wish we would have known about the hostel instead of staying in a hotel in downtown Quito. The mountain views from inside the crater were amazing, especially when relaxing in their great hot tub spa.
If you're looking for a small, clean hostel with spacious views and a friendly staff, this is definitely for you!!
