This place was ok, but after 1 night we decided to look at other options and ended up moving to other lodging in the same town. Our room felt like a cheap motel room, and the bed was uncomfortable. The window opened up to a walkway, and the curtain didn't cover the window, so there wasn't much privacy. The bathroom...

We´ve stayed there for 3 nights and liked it a lot. You get a warm welcoming feeling when entering from the street and the room was also very nice. WE liked the relaxded atmosphere and the really nice owners who helped us planning our trip in the area. Recommended!!!

Very nice american-local run Hostel. Good breakfast, clean basic rooms with hot water all the time and a beautiful rooftop terrace and a wonderful small room with a fireplace. Otavalo is not big, so everything ist in close walking distance. @Rincon: Thanks for your hospitality!

This hostel is located within easy 5-min walk from the bus station - don't be misled by maps which indicates 3 blocks away. It is in fact so accessible to everywhere. The hostel itself has such a cozy & homey atmosphere, very clean, & plenty of hot water. The staff although not very fluent in English, made up by their...

Stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be a great place to stay. It has a great, safe atmosphere, staff were very friendly, breakfast good (choice of eggs, fruit or granola) with fresh bread and tea or coffee (what more do you need?!), free wi fi, and great location. We also found Edgar on reception to be friendly,...

I've stayed in a lot of budget hotels and this place ranks among the best. VERY clean, rooftop hammocks, cozy fireplace, quaint breakfast area. However, I will say, if you are a single female traveler like myself, watch out for Edgar, one of the employees. He was very kind but made me feel uncomfortable. Everything else was perfect.

This is the better of the two hostels on Roca street. Same price, but nicer people. They offer a fireplace in the courtyard and hammocks with a view on the roof! There is a small book exchange. The continental (included) breakfast is simple. El Rincon is an easy walk to the main market and pretty much everywhere else in Otavalo...

Very close to Otovalo market. Poor breakfasts. Different hours of brakfasts in room and in reception - it was the reason that one day we were late 5 min and we didn't get meal. A lot of english speaking people (restaurant, reception).

We opted for a private ensuite. It's basic but clean. There is no kitchen but breakfast is included. The roof terrace and hammocks were great to end the day. There is a terrific Chinese restaurant up the road on the same side if the street. The market is really close by. Mid week it's quiet but we enjoyed our stay.

The actual hostal itself was very beautiful inside, there was a communal room with a fire place that is perfect to have a night time drink in. Breakfast is freshly made everymorning from a menu (there was a variety to choose from). I felt secure as the main gate required a buzzer so nobody that wasn't a guest could just...
