My husband and I stayed in this hostel and felt so much at home with the decor, the friendly hostess Chantal, the surroundings of the hostel was full of lovely paintings, wooden sculptures and plants. The bedrooms were colorful and tranquil and just comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. Chantal is a great hostess, so helpful and made our stay so enjoyable- thank you Chantal. It is at a good location with some good places to eat.

Room Tip: Depends if you want a quiet private double bed room or twin room with a lovely view of the courtyard.

The Real Dream Hostal is one of the best hostals I have ever stayed anywhere in the world...and I have stayed in many. What makes it so special for me is that everything about it was made with love. All the small details that have gone into the design, and all the love and care in which Tony and Chantal (the owners) run the place, made me feel like I had just walked into the house of my best friend.

The other things that I love about the Real Dream House is that it is very quiet and perfect for chilling out, the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, and the hostal is located in the center of the historic neighborhood near everything that is worth seeing in Ibarra. And oh yeah, the family that takes care of you are incredibly friendly.

I honestly believe they could charge a lot more for what they offer, but once you get to know them, you realize that it is not about the money. They just sincerely want to make their place and your experience as wonderful as possible. And they sure do that.

The people that own this place make it great. They are wonderful. They were great in arranging my travel to Quito. Chantal made extra efforts to arrange transportation, and she was very attentive to my questions. I remember their names, Tony and Chantal, so that says something. How often do you remember the names of the hostel owners? We had a short experience, but they were great. What more can be said? If I visit Ibarra in the future, I will stay at Real Dream Hostel.

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, showers with hot water and working WiFi combined with the colorful garden patio and kitchen access this place is an Oasis in Ibarra, Ecuador. It is within walking distance or a short taxi ride to the bus station, the market, city center restraunts or whatever brings you here to start with. The hosts Chantal, Tony and their boys Conner and Colin are most helpful and speak English, Spanish and Dutch. It is the place to stay while in Ibarra.
