    We adored our time here. We made the most of the 3 night 4 day promotion and stayed in one of the hobbit holes, which were so cosy and had the most fantastic view of Cotapaxi volcano. The food is so generous, there wasn't a...More

    I'm considering this hostel for myself and my husband to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. My husband has never seen or felt snow so a guided tour/climb of Cotopaxi would be superb! I'm wondering what the estimated cost is for this expedition? We would be looking at around 2 nights in a private cabin just for the 2 of us. He will enjoy his first experience sitting by a fireplace as well. I'm aware of the cost for this being around $120 per night in total (not per person) therefore am not needing cost of accommodation. Is there a discount if we choose to do the Cotopaxi Volcano climb through your hostel ? What is the estimated cost per person in August/September? Also, what are the temperatures normally in August/September? My husband is from a tropical Island so making sure appropriate warmth is packed is highly important. Thank you for any information you can provide! :D
