Came here with G Adventures. Out of all the hotels this was the most basic although it did the job. The main minus point is the cold shower. We were told we needed to run the water 15 minutes to get hot water, yet there was a sign saying not to run the water more than a few minutes so not to waste the water. In fact there were several signs (mainly in Spanish saying not to do this and that). Doesn't impress. I did like the use of traditional Ecuadorian local bedspreads etc. Breakfast was basic. On returning home you won't want to look at scrambled egg again for weeks!

Fair price to get what you pay for. Nice staff, cold showers. Super noisy. Bed was comfortable. Location could’ve been better. Probably would choose elsewhere if staying in Otavalo again. But price was ridiculously low.

My girlfriend and I had a private room and bathroom here for two nights for $11.50 per night which was quite reasonable. Weirdly the hostel name on booking.com (Hostal El Rustico) is different to its actual name (Hostal Santa Fe). No idea why, but we found it ok. The staff here are quite friendly although we went down for breakfast in the morning to find that they weren’t serving it that day, or the next in fact. Again, no idea why. The beds are very comfortable and the room was a decent size. We were provided with towels and soap and the showers were excellent, which we really appreciated. It is located in the heart of Otavalo around 2 blocks from the market and near all bars and restaurants. It’s a 10 minute walk from the bus station. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would gladly come back.

Imagine getting off the bus on the side of the highway after 6 hours of crossing the border and your hotel or the address doesn't show up on Google Maps. Well that's what happened to me when I went to find this place because the hotel name wasn't the same as the one I booked (via booking). Specifically, the hotel was called Hostal El Rustico on booking. Luckily, they did provide just enough information for me to eventually find it but I could imagine the headache of trying to find it at night. With that being said, I thought it was pretty good for $8.60 USD per night. It is located right in the heart of Otavalo and is clean and comfortable with highspeed Wi-Fi. They only take cash which limited my ability to stay an extended period but was worth the $8.60 USD per night rate. They also offered breakfast for $3 USD.

Extremely less than impressed by this what should be a nice hotel in the center of town. I checked in with a G Adventures tour in April of 2018, once we checked in and went out for supper we came back to no water available for showers, brushing our teeth or even flushing the toilet. Once I woke up after an ok sleep I did have a shower, then went downstairs for a breakfast that included scrambled eggs a coffee and a bun with a slice of cheese in it, I went upstairs again to brush my teeth to find there was no water again! Really less than impressed.
