Stayed in the Casa Rose Cottage with a friend. Jacuzzi is located right behind. Everything was clean. Everyone was friendly. Views are amazing and the landscaping is well kept up and beautiful. Used taxis several times and they all knew of this location.

We spent 3 nights here in the cosy dorm room, eating delicious homely meals in the restaurant and enjoying the company of the resident horse, llama, donkey and bunnies. Set in the most wonderful hilltop location we whiled away the days exploring the area and enjoying the scenery. Highly recommend.

Stayed at Rose Cottage for a total of 4 nights, 3 of these nights were spent camping, one of them inside a chalet. Rose Cottage is located some 5 km from the centre of Otavalo and surrounded by views of volcanoes. Approximately 15km away is lake Mojanda which makes a great day trek. This location means that unless you're very...

We were glad you liked staying in one of the cabanas at Hosteria Rose Cottage. Following recent expansion we now have seven different cabanas to cater for all budgets , as well as a jacuzzi in a separate building which is free to those staying in our most comfortable rooms or $5 pp otherwise. The taxi ride into/back from town...

Awesome views and great walks on the doorstep, this hostel is a winner. We had a Mini house (or huge dolls house) with 2 bedrooms and sitting room.there is even a one room wooden house just large enough for bed and basin. Feels love me Alice in wonderland after the shrinking potion. Gardens kept immaculate. Hot tub was lovely, overlooking...

Stayed here with my husband June 2016- great property. Absolutely beautiful views, cute cottages, an awesome jacuzzi with a good view. Breakfast was really good! Dinner was more on the expensive side so I'd probably eat in Otavalo but it' s convenient that they offer it. Highly recommend.

My sister and I went backpacking and this was one of our favorite hostels! It has the most amazing view and was such a charming place to stay. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The restaurant on site is also a bonus! The only thing I can say is that finding a taxi at the top of...

Thanks for your comment and for coming to stay with us, as you know we are out in the countryside and you are right we have to call for a taxi, but the staff can easily do that for our guests and they are prompt in coming up from the town usually about 15 minutes after we call.

I have just talked with them on the phone, I called to make a reservation and ask for the camping place, after telling me to go all the way to otavalo to see if I like the place (instead of just saying is a beautiful place for camping) she put me on hold (very unrespecfully) and after 1 minute she...

We are sorry about the service received when you called. It was an exceptionally busy weekend and the staff was fully stretched looking after all the customers, and in fact anyway there would not have been room for any campers that weekend. We only offer camping in our grounds when the Hosteria is not fully booked. We are a Hosteria,...

Highly recommended if you are looking for a quite place. Things I liked: - Excellent place to relax and quiet down, if you are hoping for a moment of reflection, -...

The hostel is beautifully located outside of otavalo, I would definitely recommend staying here! There is a beautiful rose garden, and hammocks with great views of the mountains. The restaurant is cozy with a fire place in the corner. The local desert with tomate de arbol is delicious. Breakfast is included, it's big and there's definitely enough coffee!

What a beautiful, beautiful place. We arrived long after we were supposed to, having had a tiring trip from Colombia. Some time around midnight, and they waited up for us, and even offered us dinner! To wake up in the morning to the scenery was a real treat. The staff were so friendly - and I mean friendly in that...
