The superb view, the wonderful hospitality including endless hot cups of tea and coffee every time we appeared in the main lounge. The meals were huge and excellent. This hostal is the liveliest place in Quilotoa and where everyone ends up to share experiences.
The cold, although we had a stove in our room and many warm blankets. Not all rooms have hot water.
The fire in the room was excellent and kept us lovely and warm. The room was clean and had good hot water. The hostel is one of the best in the town which is purely a start and end point for the treking.
The staff were generally unresponsive. My Spanish isn't great but was ignored by the staff when askin any questions and try would just wander off. The food was ok but we experienced a higher standard in other hostels on the trek.
- perfect location next crater - Woodstove to keep you warm at night - dinner and breakfast included. Dinner was great. - friendly people!
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.
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.
good view, near to the vulcano
very cold, wood in the oven was wet
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.
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.
