One of the most beautiful hostels I have ever stayed at, its rare for a backpacker to be able to enjoy accommodation like this. Real Dream was perfect down to the last detail: its beautifully decorated and spotless, the beds are the comfiest I've slept in in my whole 7 months of travelling, the showers are hot and lovely, the shared courtyard is so delightful you'd hardly want to go anywhere else. And then to top it off you have full use of a kitchen which is better equipped than most homes!
Chantal and Tony, the owners, are exceptionally friendly and helpful, arranging airport transfers, advising on things to do and how to get there, and an abundance of local knowledge. They made me feel so welcome it really was like a home away from home.
Ibarra is a perfect place to enjoy day hikes, visit Otovalo market and the Condor Park as well as a range of other attractions in this region.
I have stayed here twice now and look forward to returning as soon as I have another opportunity.More
