La Casa Sol Hostel

Hostal La Casa Sol in Quito EcuadorWe spent the first three years remodeling La Casa Sol, always trying to remain loyal to the art and materials of the Andean culture. Our pottery and woodworks are hand painted by artists from Cotopaxi, while the fabrics and textiles are hand made by indigenous people from the communities of Salasaca and Otavalo.

The colorful and warm touch of La Casa Sol is what makes it so unique and why we are proud to open the doors and our hearts to the public.

La Casa Sol is considered part of Quito's cultural patrimony. Years ago it was a residential home in "La Mariscal" the most popular neighborhood for wealthy families. Today, Mariscal is a modern tourist center with a variety of restaurants, bars, shops, art galleries and interesting streets and parkways full of colorful arts & crafts markets. Mariscal is not only where the embassies and consulates have their offices (US, France, Japan, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, and many others), but also where you can find beautiful handcrafts, paintings, carpets tapestries and sculptures made by talented local artists.

 All of our rooms are centered around a planted inner courtyard leading into the living area and cafe. The living area has a small library and toe-toasting fireplace where you can peruse our bookshelves for the latest information about Ecuador or enjoy a game of chess and nightly fires.

Services:

La Cafeteria "El sol": Different breews of coffe are served in our cafeteria, mild, medium and strong scented for all tastes. No doubt you will enjoy the exquisite natural juices, from exotic fruit from the Coastal Ecuador, Amazon and the Andes Mountains. Our chef, Señora Lidia Nuñez , makes a unique combination of cereal, granola and muslë; homemade mermelade and fruit compots. Don´t forget to try our wines, always ready for a cheer!

La Tienda Gallery - Souvenir Shop:  La Tienda offers a variety of handcrafted products made in Ecuador. These items are available for trade or sale, the idea is to open a space for the artisans to offer their products directly to the public. Our exhibit includes arts & crafts from Tigua - Cotopaxi, Salasaca, Tungurahua, Sarayacu-Napo, Jambeli-Manabi, Cuenca-Azuay, jewelly from various artists and of course arts from our homeland Otavalo-Imbabura.
