Hosteria Rose Cottage
Reviewed November 8, 2009

I had the honour of being one of the first guests at Rose Cottage. I was expecting lots but was totally taken aback when i arrived.

The photos just dont do the views justice and no description can properly capture the great atmosphere. Otavalo itself is an incredible place with markets, beautiful buildings and killer scenery-an absolute must in S.America. The small ride up the hill into the community where Rose Cottage is based is a journey into the real Ecuador. Waking up to that view is something i´ll never forget.

Id recommend it to everyone, whether youré looking for quick getaway or someplace to chill for a while. Its almost worth flying out just to spend a week or so there. I was in the basic dorm and it was palacial. You wont be disappointed.

Found this hostel due to a poster and some leaflets i found in quito. I was delighted to find a unique hostel. The owners are a charming Anglo-ecuadorian family who made me and my 3 friends feel very welcome. After making the booking they picked us up from the panamerican highway and drove us upto their retreat free of charge. Once there we immediately noticed the fantastic views of Otavalo town and the Volcano that surrounded it. We were also walmly greeted by their staff and and other members of the family. The dorm was really fantastic. 6 large comfortable single beds with a bathroom attached. Below was the communal tv room and library and next to the dorm a tennis court with balcony where we enjoyed a beer. Food was very good value at $5 and we were joined by the family who also helped us plan our trip further. They showed us to the local waterfalls and also took us to the animal market which was probably more interesting than the actual market, all for free. The one thing would be that it is a bit difficult to reach and cabs don't seem to know where it is.
