We spent a night coming from Sigchos on our way to Quilotoa. We arrived quite early and enjoyed the free coffee and tea at the fireplace as well as the small but very nice spa with jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath - what a treat after a cold hiking day. Bed in dorm room was comfy and warm, food was...

The warmth of the woodburner and the staff were a wonderful introduction to Lulu Llama. The fresh tasting food was served communally. This helped foster the formation of friendships, but most importantly, the food - prepared by a local family - was some of the most delicious and nutritious we've had during our trip. They were very good abuot catering...

Llullu Llama is probably one of the most lovely places I have seen in Ecuador. It is a very well run, cosy, super nice accommodation on the Quilotoa Loop with breathtaking views over the sourroundings. It is basic but just so lovely. I can highly recommend this place. If you have the chance take cabaña 3 or 4 with an...

If you're doing the Quilotoa Loop make sure you spend a night at the Llullu Llama and if tou aren't doing the hike go there anyway. Delicious food, charming atmosphere and the spa is even more than you could expect from a hostel so far up the mountains.

Wonderful place to stay - head and shoulders above any other hostel or hotel on the Quilatoa loop. Food was fantastic, very cosy hostel and comfy beds. Staff were very friendly and helped make us a beautiful dinner even when we arrived late and after others had finished. Good information on the hike too.

Spa was lovely - sauna, steam and hot tub with incredible views. Great staff, not only helpful with directions but after finding one of our party had left some clothing, they arranged to send it to our next hostel of their own accord. Breakfast was one of the best we've had on the trip - homemade muesli was a highlight....

What an amazing place to stay!! This hostel is so charming, set in the mountains, with fantastic views! When we arrived we were tired after weeks of trekking and this place provided just the refuge we needed! The main lodge area provides coffee and tea all day and a wonderful social setting to meet other travelers. There was construction going...

Great hostel, cozy and comfortable, located in the beautiful Andean mountains. The hostel is just on the outside of the interesting village of Isinlivi and has a great atmosphere. From anywhere in and around the hostel, you get great widespread mountain views which is just gorgeous. The hotel has a fireplace that is lit at night and creates a super...

very comfy beds, great food which includes dessert, friendly service plus a beautiful location! I stayed here while the construction was going on, but they offered the spa for free to compensate (which was awesome!).

It’s great to hear that Llullu Llama exceeded your expectations! Good to know you found our beds comfortable and enjoyed the meals. Nice to hear you found the Spa entrance a good deal to compensate for the construction work that is going on at our place. We are all working very hard to make Llullu Llama more comfortable for our...

My girlfriend and i booked this hostel on the strength of its reputation. We were excited for their 'european cooking' including supposedly chicken lasagne, shepherds pie, chocolate cakes and blueberry crumble. After a day of hiking we were ready for a great meal but were presented with some rice and salad followed by a small mug of rice pudding. We...

We are very happy to hear you found our hostel a cool place with great views, and that you found our beds insanely comfortable! We are also very sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy the food and expected a more “European cooking” style. Our chef is very well trained but not a western style cook - although she does the...
