This small ecological hostel has recently been bought by a Dutch woman and her Ecuadorian husband. Currently the hostel is small with 20 beds and basic rooms, but there are plans to construct small 'chozas' (local huts) in the garden to extend the capacity. The hostel is located in a small town in the mountains in the province of Cotopaxi and is an eco-hostel which tries to be self-sufficient and sustainable; it is situated in the small village of Isinlivi and mainly focused on hikers.
The owner of the hostal is also co-owner of a well-known touroperator located in Quito that focuses on walk-ins and internetbookers.
