10/10 Exceptional

The property looks modest from the outside, but is actually quite charming. The food in the restaurant is terrific, the beds are comfortable, and the staff . . . they are just the best. We were in Ecuador during a series of protests that shut down most of the country's highways. We couldn't get back to Quito and for a while it looked at though we might not be able to get to the airport. Pablo and the other members of the staff were calm, kind, and super helpful. They made sure we were comfortable, showed us where to hike, fed us well, and helped organize our transport back to the airport. God bless them! The Hosteria Pampallacta is a 5-minute walk from the larger Termas Papallacta. Those pools are delightful and worth the time and entry fee. The Termas Papallacta Hotel is beautiful, but we found the Hosteria more homey and quaint -- especially for half the price of the more expensive resort. And the area around Papallacta is simply stunning.

Most probably because of covid and low season, I had the outside thermal pool to myself. Really nice and soothing. The staff was amazing, lit up the fireplace and filled private bath in my room with hot spring water while I was having dinner at the restaurant. Food was great, both dinner and breakfast. Awesome place !

2/10 Poor

Staff was rude, they did not care about the customer. A member of the staff walked into our room without even knocking on the door. Then the owner was making excuses for the guy instead of apologizing to us. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had on a hotel. Do not recommend staying here. A guy may walk into your room in the middle of the night.

Loved this place.
What a beautiful hosteria. The stone work to the hotspring fed tub in the room to the fire place. We went to dinner and came back to a warm fire in the fire place and a tub full of hot spring water. And the 3 on-site pools were beautiful. The biggest pool was pretty hot and had a small slide for kids and a nearby cold plung. Then there's a small pool in a building that feels like bathing in a cave. One of the things we wanted to do in Papallacta was birdwatching and this place delivered. Right from the hostel is a hiking trail up the forested slope behind the property. So many beautiful birds. And for breakfast the waiter had no problem providing us a delicious vegan meal. Only thing missing was an espresso machine.

Great stay
Wonderful hotel 200 meters from the main ‘termas’. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The two pools are great and very private. The dining room was a little cold, but the breakfast was delicious.
