I had seen photos of the property prior to arriving in Quito. Someone must have been very skilled with a camera, because this place looked entirely different than pictured. Despite our having a local person to reserve the "better" rooms for our group, the staff somehow got confused and gave our rooms away! The ones we got were not comfortable or clean, and were in poor repair. The shower put out hardly any water at all. The rooms were cold. The staff was nice, but very confused, and kept taking us to rooms that were already occupied. This was overall a very upsetting experience and not something you want to find after a long flight. I didn't expect the Ritz Carlton, but I wanted a clean and comfortable room and staff who knew what the heck was going on. We ended up checking out the next day and found La Casa Sol around the corner, which was worlds better.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else!

we enjoyed staying at this hostel. the staff is very sweet and the location is great. In addition, the breakfast is good- I had the fruit and yogurt each day. There is hot water and showers in most rooms. Also, there is high speed internet but we had problems connecting MACs to it.

Room Tip: there isn't too much difference between the rooms as far as I could tell- it just depends on how many people you are sleeping. The walls are super thin so if people are coming and going at night you will probably hear them. Try the room to the left from the foyer and at the end if you have 1 or two people sharing a bed- it may be quietest.

This hostel is Incredibly noisy at night and highly over priced. The staff is rude and are not helpful at all. The book shelf is only for readIng in their stagnant uncomfortable waiting room. When I asked to read a book in my room the male worker was short with me and insisted I read the book ( 400ish pages ) in the waiting room. when I asked to possibly do a book swap he also refused. The rooms are extremely small to the degree of barely being able to open the door because it hits the bed. Don't stay at this hostel. There are better places to spend your time and money.

We stayed at Otavalo Huasi II (Wilson y Tamayo) for two weeks while taking Spanish classes at Yanapuma. Cristina, Ruben, Jasmine and the rest of the family and staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Our room was big enough to unpack all of our belongings and transform the room into our "home". The breakfast choices were both filling and delicious. The outside courtyard is great for relaxing in the sun and we were able to use the kitchen. Overall, we loved our stay at Otavalo Huasi II and will certainly stay again in the future.

We stayed 3 nights at this hostal. It was adequate in terms of the type of beds, rooms etc. They had internet, but charged 90 cents per hour for its use and was very slow. Across the street is an internet store for 70 cents per hour that was fast. The owners are nice people, but did nothing about the noise created by other guests in the hostal. The street noise was typical for Quito, and was only bad in the rooms facing the street. On our third night we moved to an inner room that was much less noisey, but had no toilet seat on the toilet. The worst problem was when the midnight flights arrived and the guests came in, they were all excited to be arriving, and yelled and ran while other were trying to sleep. The staff did nothing, but they groups would be quiet when asked. Overall for the price and the close location to the Plaza Foch in the Mariscal made it convenient.. Breakfast was decent. We did feel safe in the area, and a permanant night security guard was on the street at all times for the hostal across the street. JUST BRING EARPLUGS.
