    This hostel is located directly opposite the crater. The rooms are cozy but chilly as you are at high altitude. Staff light a fire while you are eating your evening meal so your room is warm when you return. Meals were sufficient and staff friendly.

    No wifi.

    I liked that breakfast and dinner were included with each stay.

    It's very cold in Quilotoa, so you would want to be in a warm room at night. My bed was warm and comfortable, but not enough wood was given for the fireplace to last us throughout the night to keep us really warm. Also, you have to wait a long time for the hot water to turn on and once, they ran out of gas so they did not have hot water. I would not have minded this if the price of the hotel were cheaper; however, I do think this place is overpriced since you don't exactly get the luxuries as promised.

    The location is excellent, right next to the quilotoa crater. Staff was very friendly and your stay includes free breakfast and dinner and coffee/tea. Wood stove in every room and plenty of warm blankets (it gets cold up there).

    The hostal is opposit to the entrance of the road down to Quilotoa lake

    Breakfast was ok, but dinner was quite disappointing (dry spaghetti, with a fried egg, cooked potaties and a bit of cheese) after a long day of hiking. Especially two nights in a row and because it was off season there was no other place to go for dinner.

    Just in front of the lagoon. It included dinner and breakfast for 20 bucks.

    The heating was a little problematic. Since it is really cold they should at least give a little more wood to each room.

    It was a cozy place in a great location for the small town.

    The staff is very unfriendly. They take advantage of the fact neither of us were able to speak Spanish. We come from a multicultural country and always find a way to communicate with those that don't speak English. They constantly wanted more money. Luckily, a fellow traveller was able to communicate with them and save us a constant hassle. Rooms were sparse but supremely dirty. Toilets full of feces. Only stayed one night and happily moved on.

    Staff were amazing. Owner gave us a lift in his car to ambato (3 hours drive!) Location is great- so close to crater/lagoon.

    Very cold (not their fault... In the mountains!) and they do have log fire in each room.

    Hot shower.

    The place is pretty spartan--probably ok for budget travelers, although I think there are better options. There's no heat in the rooms until after dinner around 9, so forget about relaxing in your room. The large main room has a few chairs arranged around a stove that provides minimal heat and is where meals are served. Staff brings wood to your room during dinner and starts the fire. A minimal amount of wood is provided; the idea seems to be to heat the room enough to allow you to undress and get under the half-dozen blankets on the bed. Sleeping in 40-degree heat under a load of heavy blankets is extremely uncomfortable. The fire is out by the time you get up, so you have to accept the cold and warm up in the shower. We stayed one night and found another place for our second night and were glad we did. Not recommended.

    Biggest upset was that no map was provided for the walk to chugchilan. All the signs have been taken down and as a result we went the wrong way a couple of times and had some nasty run in's with dogs. As a hostel charging a premium price I would have expected greater customer service. We also felt like we were intruding on the family somewhat.

    The bed was very comfortable and warm. The wood stove in our room was lit after dinner without being asked. Location was excellent, right next to the crater lake.

    It was very basic (although we do try to stay in better places). There was only a dribble of cold water coming from the shower so we gave that a miss! Your information on our booking sheet is incorrect. There is no mini bar, the idea is laughable!!! and the room did not have a balcony.
