I arrived almost at midnight because of long bus ride. But the worker welcome me when I arrived and he's really friendly. The terrace has a good view of Otavalo city and it's close to the centre. They only have private room and it was very comfy. Definitely recommend.

Loved this hostel! We had a last minute change of plans in our group and the workers were very accommodating. As soon as we got there, the on duty staff gave us a map of the city with very clear directions on how to get to the market(s). It was a nice location, and the rooms were nice. The only... More

The guy who was working was very attentive and cordial. The hostel is ideally located, and has a nice view in the terrace. There is also a kitchen... More

As other reviews have noted, the owner Roberto is a real plus. He not only shares suggestions about where to go, but practical information about how to get there. The hostal is an easy walk to the bus terminal as well as to the major commercial area. When I was there, the kitchen was clean and had more than adequate... More

We arrived into Otavalo and were absolutely blown away by this hostel. Largely due to the kindness and attention we received from the owner Roberto and his sidekick. You can tell that he is extremely proud of his town and will walk you through all the points on his hand-made map from the amazing view from the hostel'a rooftop. Apart... More
