We spent three nights here, which seemed to be a lot longer than the other guests who stay, hike and go or is it hike, stay and go? I reiterate what other guests have said in their reviews. It does get cold at night and the staff are very diligent - even to gringo guests with no manners! Given that...

While having breakfast today in the hotel dining room, another family joined us. As we moved to a larger table, I inadvertantly left my small briefcase with my iPad and important business docs on the first table. Getting old and forgetful, I didn't realize my loss until we had driven three hours to Baños. I called the hostal and once...

I have stayed here for 1night with two friends. We booked the room directly with hostel.Pretty nice common area where y can chat with other travelers. We got european diner and nice breakfast with yogurt eggs and coffee. Plus big plate of fruit! The lake is really close and this place is alive not like the other hostels around.

In my opinion, this is the nicest place to stay in Quilotoa. Staff was incredibly friendly and warm with us- they gave us good recommendations, were very helpful, and overall made us feel very welcome. A bit pricier (in Ecuador standards, so if you're from the states it's still very cheap), but worth it due to the fact that breakfast...

Perfect for our final stop on the Quilotoa loop, meaning we didn't have to drag our exhausted bodies further round the lagoon. Bit pricier than other places around. Great food. Good wifi. Comfy beds, with option of a fire in the room. Staff were helpful and we paid by card.

The room is nice and is cosy once they light the fire and the location is good but its a small village so any location is good. The staff are quite rude and not accommodating and took up the only warm place in the lounge. The food is not good, we paid for lunch here and had overcooked meat and...

We stayed here one night in a dorm. Overall ok but not the best stay on the loop. I wasn't really keen on the served food, specially since dinner got served 50 minutes late, what hurts after a seven hour hike. A commune area with fire place was would have helper a lot. If I would ever come back to...

We stayed in 3 hostals while hiking Quilotoa loop - a night in a cheap but so-so hostal in Latacunga, another night in an overpriced hostal in Chugchilán, and one night here in Chukirawa. This place is the heaven and I definitely recommend it. please understand this hostal is not a 5-star hotel in big cities. But for its location,...

Fantastic location, right beside the crater. Very unusual hostel, and it was very cold while we were there. The option is there to burn wood in stoves in the rooms, but this generates a lot of smoke! The road journey up to the hostel is an adventure in itself, especially in the dark. What a great location!

Unfortunately Quilotoa doesn't have nice hostals as the previous places where we have stayed while hiking the Quilotoa Loop which is a shame as this place probably has more tourists than than Isinlivi and Chungchilan, the service is also not comparable this is the reason why I am giving a 3 stars instead of 4, They should definitely improve their...
