Located in Vilcabamba, 26 miles from Loja, Alpha House provides a garden and free WiFi. The location was perfect. It was close enough to walk and not too far away that the taxi would take about 5 minutes to get to the centre of town. It was nice knowing and having that extra security with the landlord and his family living on sight. They were always there to help out, answer questions or ring a cab for us. It was nice and quiet, spacious. The shower was bliss.
Vilcabamba is a beautiful small town nestled in the Andes but at a lower elevation than most tourist destinations. The weather was warm and dry and the town is slightly quaint without the large chain stores found in most cities. However had no problem finding what I needed. The real attraction is the countryside, visually spectacular IMHO. There is also a small river on the edge of town with trails that take you past groves of bamboo and other flora. The water is the best here in all of Ecuador as it contains colloidal silver and gold plus other beneficial minerals, maybe that's why they call it the "Valley of Longevity".
Vilcabamba is a totally unique spot. The view of the mountains from town is breathtaking; the atmosphere on the square is calming and relaxing. All the food at the restaurants was either good or remarkably creative, especially Mestizo. All the people there were fabulously engaging and positive, even when we saw them other places. Every day the soup was to die for! It was a little disconcerting seeing more gringos than locals around town,, but nature trumps all human presence!
Cool, fun town with an active community. Most nights there is a group event or lecture to attend. Often, we had to choose one event over another due to their frequency. That's a good thing, too, as it's a rather small town. That said, it's quiet, peaceful and amazingly beautiful. We totally recommend it to our friends and family now. We loved it!
Vilcabamba is a unique place. 50 years ago it was a simple village with no canalisation a no infrastructure. Then from 1968 on came lots of foreigners mostly from North American and Europe and helped building this place to a small town with amenities that you do not find easily in other Ecuadorian places. Of course prices at the local french bakery are a lot higher but it is no obligation to buy there, it is a privilege. Vilcabamba offers two worlds in one, you have the traditional ecuadorian offers and the ones run by foreigners. People are living together here peacefully and fertilize each other. You will hardly find another place in Latin America where so many inhabitants are speaking English thanks to initiatives that were started by some of the expatriates many years ago. It really seems that the foreigners living here are happy with Vilcabamba and the people from here are with "their" foreigners.
This is a great little town - full of fabulous restaurants and a diverse population - with Ecuadorians, many retired gringos, and plenty spiritual hippies. People love to sit outside in cafes and the plaza is lively. Food is great - can get everything from burgers and pizza and crepes, to organic, vegan, etc. Great bakeries and ice cream shops as well. It has a truly small town feel - friendly and accessible - with plenty diversity.
Small town with great views of surrounding mountains and nature and the food in the town is definitely catered to tourists however it is very tasty! I will go back to Vilcabamba for some much needed relaxation in the future!
Located a short walk from the town centre, the hotel had everything you could wish for. The cabins are large, beds are comfortable and the showers clean and modern. Jacquelina was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble, she even brought a pot of coffee to our cabin at seven in the morning. The food she provides is excellent and the hot spa and swimming pool are wonderful. A great place to relax for a few days. Can't wait to return. Highly recommended.
First, you need to know that there was nothing about the staff or the physical aspects of the hostel that were in anyway bad. It was exactly what I expected from an Ecuadorian hostel. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant next door served a good breakfast (not included by the way, which was not expected because the room was $20 a night). Do not hold any of my disappointment against the hotel itself. They were wonderful.
This beautiful home turned hostal was the perfect home base for my stay in Vilcabamba. I made use of the well-equipped kitchen daily and was within minutes of the central plaza. The room itself was cozy and tastefully decorated and the staff were beyond friendly and accommodating. I will stay here again if I ever make it back to Vilcabamba!
I felt very quickly at home in this hostel. Breakfast was always freshly prepared. There were fresh juices and fruits. The coffee and bread was very tasty. When I visit Vilcabamba again, I hope Hostel Jardin has a room available. Everything was very nicely designed, the courtyard is beautiful with many trees and plants.
Great location! Just far enough from the centre of Vilcabamba to ensure peace and quiet. The view to the valley is the best with the stunning breakfast. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful anytime, they help us to organize activities, the infinity pool area was really nice.
The host was the best! David hiked Mandango with me and took me to various locations of interest in Vilcabamba. He even shopped for me.
Host was very friendly. It gave a local vibe to our trip to Vilcabamba
