This was the best set up hostal we have come across in 9 months in South America, and certainly the best value at $7 ea per night for a double room with private bathroom. The room had a comfortable bed and pillows, a great hot powerful shower and to our surprise a flat screen TV with cable. Everything was immaculately clean and shiny new. There was the best equipped kitchen I have seen with free coffee, teas, water filter, hot chocolate and even popcorn. The facilities were excellent and he staff super friendly and helpful with every interaction.
On another note... related to the very negative review i just read before this one. It just so happens that we were in Latacunga staying in a hostal the 23rd October. We overheard (it was a hostal where you could hear your neighbour breath) everything from a guy who went looking for his money in his pack. He couldn't find it and searched for a while getting cross suddenly realizing it was definitely missing. He kept saying how angry he was with himself. He had clearly only just discovered that the money was missing and then we heard him calling a hostal or somewhere he had been staying previously. It seems more than a coincidence and very likely this was the guy who left the bad review. All I can say is that if that is the case he discovered the loss in Latacunga when all sorts of people could have handled his bag on buses etc. In any case I think you shouldn't leave large amounts of money in an unlocked bag anywhere.
