We are an eco hostel located in the beautiful valley of Cotopaxi, a couple hours outside of Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Our hostel rests nestled near the base of an extinct volcano name Pasochoa, which means "the walk home" in Kichwa. In total, we are surrounded by 7 volcanoes, one of which is the world famous, Cotopaxi, which means "neck of the moon".
