A charming little hostal in the centre of the city. Ideal for dicovering the centre of Otavalo. The room in the corner on the first floor was very spacious but a little noisy because of the traffic. The room had a private small bathroom. Breakfast was very good with frech juice on top. The service was excellent.

The manager Adrianna was very welcoming and helpful. We had a large comfortable room above the courtyard. There was a choice of good breakfasts and a very pleasant garden area. The hotel was centrally located within walking distance of the main square and the bus terminal

This is a nice old property along the city center. Very close to the plaza at Otavalo market. The place is clean though a bit of building maintenance would be a plus, it is functional. The staff are all friendly, warm and accommodating plus the breakfast they offer is a hit! The hotel price is also very reasonable. Highly recommended...

This hotel is one of the oldest in Otavalo. It is centrally located, which makes it an ideal base for the Saturday market. Rooms are modestly priced - $35.00 per night for two persons sharing a room. Breakfast is a must ranging from $2.50 per person to $4.00 per person for the full house breakfast. The full house breakfast is...

If you're looking for an uncomplicated, clean, safe and not too expensive place then you're right in this hostel. The rooms are clean and safe, the service is nice and you'll find everything here that a traveller needs. The only bad thing during my stay was, that the Wifi sometimes didn't connect well. But that's really the only bad thing....

Stayed for only one night with 2 other friends in a large 3 bed room with an ensuite bathroom and shower. The hotel is beautiful inside; with an open air courtyard with hanging swings right in the middle of the ground floor; lovely gardens in the back, a pretty living room/common area with interesting "knickknacks" and a nice eating area...

I stayed three nights. The staff are very friendly. Breakfast is not included, but available for purchase at a reasonable price. Nice common areas. It's clean, and conveniently located. Paid $20/night for a private room with bath...pretty good deal. Wifi is hit and miss. See room recommendation.

The people were great & very helpful. Kristen was always cleaning dusting & looking after the place. Internet was not available in our room, which was disappointing & one night not even available in the computer room.

I stayed at this hotel as a part of a class trip. We had a wonderful time, and enjoyed our stay at this beautiful hotel. It isn't too far from the main square, and is walking distance from the market. The hotel served us delicious food every morning for breakfast and had a nice little courtyard for us to relax...

“ask for a 'tranquilo' room that opens to the courtyard for quiet - though these are modest. Ask to look at rooms.”
