I can not say anything bad about this hostal. Staff were really helpful, room, shower, free breakfast and lovely communal room with an open fire were all excellent. Location was also perfect and check out was not until one pm.

Our family of four found this charming little hotel on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. It is close to the wonderful Saturday market at Plaza de Poncho and there are several good restaurants within walking distance. (The Mexican restaurant on the nearby corner was extra good) Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was small but neat and very...

We didn't have a reservation in Otavalo and this was the first lodging we got to from the bus station. We were lucky! This place has a good location a few blocks away from the Saturday market. It's clean and quiet. We had a room with its own bathroom, though many of the rooms shar the bathroom at the end...

We stayed 3 nights here in a triple room. The hostel is really pretty with an inner sunny courtyard, a restaurant area, rooftop patio and a common TV room. While we were there they were renovating the rooftop to make the restaurant up there. It was a 5 minute walk to the market and the bus station so location was...

This is a lovely little place and we stayed here for 3 nights. We paid $30 a night including breakfast for 2 people. The room was nice, lots of warm blankets and plenty of hot water, which is important in Otavalo. The location is great and quiet, right in town, just a 5 minute walk from everything. The price of...

I have stayed here many times and I highly recommend this Bed and breakfast. From the moment you enter not only do the beautiful flower gardens and painted murals greet you but the staff make you feel welcome and are wonderfully kind and extremely helpful. I enjoy the peace, tranquility and safety this Bed and Breakfast provides. The English speaking...

Only two blocks from Plazo de Ponchos, this hostel is a good option in Otavalo. It is an easy walk from the bus station or if you get dropped on the highway (many buses do this) flag down a taxi and it should cost around $1.50. Just make sure that you let the taxi driver know you want the hostel...

This place has just about everything you need. Friendly staff, breakfast is included, a rooftop terrace with a pool table and hammocks, a communal fireplace, laundry service, etc., etc. The rooms are quite basic, but clean. The only issue with our room was that we heard dogs barking non-stop throughout the night from the adjacent building. This hostel is in...

The family that runs this small hotel makes you feel right at home. They are very helpful in providing ideas of things to do that are off-the-beaten path a bit and run a very laid back place. The rooms are simple, but clean and there is a nice roof deck where you can relax. If you spend a lot of...
