The rooms were comfy and upon arrival we were given all necessary information such as tourist spots and good restaurants. They even do laundry for free which is brilliant! They have hundreds of DVDs and when...

The hostel is a short walk from the main plaza and has a huge communal kitchen on the roof top with a view on Otavalo and its surroundings. Owner Roberto is a great guy, helpful...

We had a pleasant stay at Hostal Chasqui but this was mainly down to the staff. When we arrived Milton gave us a tour, a map and loads of information about the town and excursions that we could do. Both he and Roberto were always friendly and tried to fix things straight away for us. We had a double room...

After a 15 hour bus journey over the colombian border, I really could care less what the hostel was like as long as it had a bed- Hostel Chasqui was SUCH a welcome sight! They welcomed us in late at 11:30, and gave us our choice of two 2 rooms.The owner (Roberto?) and main staff guy (Milton) were always so...

Roberto who runs the staff was the most useful and friendly hostel owner I have come across in nearly 2 years of backpacking. He gave us lots of information about the surroundings, onward travel to Colombia, and a map. Room was very clean, bed and linen was fine. Kitchen was large and reasonably well equipped. Roberto even offered to make...

We were planning on staying here one night just to hit the Saturday market. We ended up staying three nights because the staff was great. Upon arrival, the owner (we think), dropped our stuff off in our rooms (very clean, with bathroom, TV and DVD player), showed us the vast array of DVDs incase it rains, the washboard, the beautiful...

I stayed here for two nights with my sister. Mostly we were just happy to have a hot shower, but the hostal itself was cheap and great. Close to the town centre, and grocery stores. The Kitchen is a little crowded and there isn't really a good place for people to mingle.. but definitely a great place to stay!
