We had a great stay at the place! The room was large and clean with a balcony. The kitchen was perfect, had everything we needed to cook. Beautiful rooftop views! The hostel is about 10 min walk to main plaza.
We stayed two nights in Hostel Chasqui. It was pleasant and comfortable - especially the beds! They kitchen is large and very tidy. Rooms are clean. Our room had a balcony and there was a rooftop where you could see the whole town. Unfortunstely it rained most of the time we were so we were unable to put it to good use. Otavalo is a lovely town.
I was only able to spend one night in Otavalo. Upon arrival to Hostal Chasqui I was pleasantly greeted by Roberto who was very friendly and spoke in both English and Spanish. He showed me two different options for rooms. He also spent some time orienting me around otavalo with a clearly labelled map and great suggestions :)
This is my second visit to Otavalo and I stayed here both times. As everyone has mentioned, Roberto is a gem and makes everyone feel truly welcome and at home. He’s a wealth of information and is always happy to help. The rooms are very comfortable—great value for the price. The hot water works, and the kitchen is well-equipped. The views are excellent, it’s centrally located, and guests are given keys to come and go as they please. If I come back to Otavalo, without question I will book here again.
Located on the edge of the city we found it to be a lovely place. It was quiet, had a great view from the roof and a good kitchen. The room was in good condition and they had hot water for the shower. The owner was great, giving us a map and telling us about all the sights nearby.
