A nice hostal in a nice town, but made great by the fantastic welcome we received from the owner Roberto! Probably the friendliest hostel i've ever stayed in, he gave us so much information and made us feel very welcome. Also an excellent location near to town.

Roberto was very helpful and informative. Great map of town and surrounds with plenty to do. There is much, much more to do than the weekly market - we extended our stay. Clean room, spacious. Great views of volcanoes from roof terrace, Good, well stocked kitchen. Clean bathroom.

I never felt so welcomed in the last 3 weeks during my travel in Ecuador. The hostal is not directly in the City centre but just 5-8min to the main plaza. The owner is super nice and he took a lot of time to give all the Information you will need for your stay. The room was really nice as... More

I spend three nights in Otavalo and had a very nice time at the Hostal Chasqui. The owner Roberto is super friendly and gives very good advice for visiting the city, its markets on Saturday and places nearby. The rooms are basic but clean. Wifi is good. No breakfast, but nice panaderias just down the road and the kitchen is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hostal Chasqui in Otavalo. The proprietor, Roberto, made us feel right at home. He gave us lots of information on the town, including referrals for great places to eat; he also gave us inside information on the Inti Raymi Festival. The room was fantastic, with a nice view of the surrounding volcanoes. We’re going... More

We stayed here 2 different nights in 2 different rooms during our exploration of the area. Walking downtown is only about 4 blocks to the Plaza Grande, the Mercado is a couple of blocks further. The location is quiet and central. No breakfast is available, but the short walk will do you well. Roberto, Milton, and Brian were the managers... More

I stayed in Hostal Chasqui for one night in a private single room. The softly-spoken man who worked there was absolutely lovely, welcoming, and gave me so much information about the town when I arrived. He was also great for accommodating me when I realised I had made the booking for the wrong day. The room itself was cute, comfortable... More
