I was recommended to stay here by a friend of mine who said it was beautiful and perfectly situated as it was just by Otavalo market. These two facts I have to agree with. You enter the hostal and you are greeted by a lush garden with hammocks to relax in and she was also right about Otavalo market only...

I stayed one night in Valle de amanecer and paid 14$ for a single room including breakfast. The room was small but clean. The shared bathroom has hot water and was well cleaned. Unfortunately, the walls are things so you can hear your neighbors and also the street noise. However, I slept well. The garden is wonderful - with hammocks...

Clean but very very rundown. Mushy rooms. Also quite expensive. Rooms are very noisy so sleeping depends on the decency of your neighbours. Low street noise though which is rare in otavalo. Staff is friendly professional and honest. They take reservations and make no fuzz about singles in double rooms when you are traveling with a group. Included breakfeast good...

The Hostel is located in a good position very close to main square and restaurants. Rooms are set around a garden area which is pleasant but this means you have to walk outside if needing bathroom facilities at night. We stayed on 2 occasions and both rooms were quite small and noisy. The first one was on the outside and...

Breakfast is one of the best i have done! 3 types of breakfast. Really nice and relaxing garden! The 3 persons at the reception are very nice and helpful. The lady who's got a son (noisy!) should not shout to her collegue in front of everybody! Nevertheless, i would recommand it!

The overall look and feel of the place is very nice, with much more character than most of the places I checked out in Otavalo. The price however was far too much for what were extremely noisy rooms given the price of nearby hostels. Due to the thin roof on the room, it sounded like the people walking past and...

This was our fifth time to stay here over the past five years. It's not a 5-star hotel, but it gets 10 stars for its charm. The breakfast included with the room is terrific. The owner is warm and personable.

I was here for one night a week ago and the internet connection was so week that it was totally ineffective although they advertise wifi and in the morning at 5.30 there was barely tepid water and definitely not hot. When requesting a second small cup of coffee for breakfast in the morning, we were advised we would have to...
