The Secret Garden Cotopaxi. Machachi, Ecuador
Note

Understandably voted best hostel in Ecuador. A small ecolodge, with a little dorm, wood fires, no Wi-fi, incredible cooking 4 times a day (included in the price), a heated spring water jacuzzi overlooking the valley, lovely live in staff. This place is cosy, so warm welcoming, and would be well worth a visit even if you had absolutely no interest in the beautiful scenery. However, the hostel can organise for you hikes up to the first glacier of the Cotopaxi volcano, or the full monty, to the top, with a great local guide, or biking, horse-riding, waterfall treks, whatever you fancy. It's lovely to be in a place in the middle of nowhere, but so comfy and welcomed, not having to worry about anything. A must if going to Ecuador. Tip: On certain week days there is a $5 shuttle bus from The Secret Garden Quito. Alternatively, you can organise a transfer with the hostel driver from the nearby town of Machachi, but this is slightly more expensive.
