Look if you don't have to stay in Latacunga don't. It's just a city with not much to do or see. If you can make it just an exchange point do so.

The Hotel Central is OK and cheap enough but is old and tired. The rooms are a reasonable size and they have hot water in the showers, after a wait. But the bathroom has mould, particularly on the shower base and everything else looks like it's 10 years past it's use by date.

The hotel is on the main square so location is good but there aren't many restaurants etc close by.

The owner and staff are nice and happy to assist when required.

We were a group of 5 - stayed in the very spacious dorm room! The staff was very very every kind - one of our friends got very sick after the Quilotoa loop and they called drove him to the hospital to see a doctor...

It is a simple accommodation with hot water! Nice treat after the loop :)

Also unlike the Tiana Hostel they don't charge you for luggage storage which is amazing!

We had a reservation problem at Hostel Tiana. So we ended up at Hotel Central. What a happy accident!
The hostess was so kind to us - providing us with directions, a delicious breakfast for a low price, and storage for our bags during our Quilotoa trek. She patiently conversed with us in our "survival" Spanish. I wish I had her here at home so I could make progress toward fluency!
The room was comfortable and quiet with a beautiful view of the nearby church.
Conveniently located in Latacunga. Super wifi.

Room Tip: You can ask for a quiet room - we had our choice when we arrived.

Nice place I stayed at both before and after I did the Quilotoa loop. The staff are so friendly and helpful.
It was quiet when I stayed here so I had a dorm room to myself.
I was able to store my bag for free while I did the loop which was nice.

Good place.

What made our stay here was the kindness of the hosts, the Grandma was lovely and we got a chance to practice our Spanish with the little boy while having breakfast.

Room was good with a hot shower and was a very good size, no problems with wifi, and our room had a great view of the park, would recommend staying here as you get a private room and private bathroom for less than elsewhere, we paid $10 pp.

Friendly, attentive and comfortable. Had a great stay at the hotel. Central location makes it a treat. They even kept our bags safe while we did the Quilotoa Loop. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a comfortable before and after. $10pp.

We had a lovely stay at Hotel Central. As some of the other reviewers have said there are double rooms with a beautiful view over the park or slightly cheaper rooms without the view. Both are good value.

The family owners are really friendly and helpful and make you feel very welcome. The $3 breakfast was worth it with warm bread, eggs, ham, jam, coffee and juice. We enjoyed chatting with the family and little grandson over breakfast.

They also keep your bags safe if you are trekking.

When we went down to breakfast we saw two other tourists trying to sleep in reception. It turns out that they'd booked at another popular hotel down the road and the hotel didn't open their doors to them when they arrived at 4am. They'd paid in advance at the other hotel so didn't want a room at hotel central but the family let them rest at reception anyway. Apparently this happens frequently with two nearby hotels. We witnessed the lovely grandma at hotel central offering them free coffee when they got up to leave.

From a safety and comfort perspective I'd suggest booking hotel central if you're arriving early in the morning. We did not envy the other couple. As we had a lovely experience we'd naturally recommend a stay at Hotel Central if you arrive at any time of the day!
