“Amazing owner who will make your sure your stay is wonderful”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Stayed at the Flying Donkey with my boyfriend for a whole week. It's truly the best value for your money. The hostel is new, clean, safe, has a fully equipped kitchen and common room, is in a perfect location near the famous market and the city center, and this best part of our entire stay was the amazing owner Paul. Paul will go above and beyond to ensure you have an amazing stay while you are there! We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Otavalo! Thanks Paul!

Although the name of the hostel is humorous, your stay at this place will be no joke. Otavalo is a beautiful town snuggled in the andean mountains, and there is much to see and do. The hostel is a great place to begin the adventure. The owner, Paul, is kind and personable with excellent advice on touring the area in the style of daytime or night time activities. He keeps a clean, easy-going atmosphere. If you need a place to rest, clean up or get to know some locals this hostel is the place to do it!
