Hosteria la Quinta  is a rustic guesthouse in Alausi, handy for passengers on the famous train down the Devil's Nose.

A convenient place to stay for those taking the celebrated train down the Devil’s Nose zig-zag from Alausi, the Hosteria La Quinta is a typical rustic guesthouse with whitewashed walls, roof beams and patio garden decorated with pot plants. A brick-walled open fireplace keeps the place warm and cosy, while the polished wood floors are most attractive. Guest rooms are of varying size and furnished in a somewhat Spartan fashion.

The property is set on a hillside and some rooms have expansive views over the valley and the town of Alausi. Little English is spoken, but service is friendly and staff helpful.

  • The Galapagos was as expected beautiful and interesting but we were pleasantly surprised by the visits to the rose plantation and panama hat factory which turned out far more interesting…

    MW, London
  • It was all brilliant, we expected the Galapagos to be the highlight, but all the other trips were as good in different ways. All the Ecuadorians encountered at hotels, restaurants,…
