A home away from (American) home? Jul 23, 2009
The Black Sheep Inn sounds great when you read the guidebook or their web page, but I found it a real disappointment when I got there and so did several other people I met who had been. This is a shame because it is in a good location and the owners have made a huge effort to make it "the place to stay" in Chugchilan. Sadly, everything is micro-managed and you have to want to be in a very American environment in order to enjoy the experience. I stayed in the bunkhouse and it was the worst (narrowest, uncomfortable and most expensive!) bed I had in the whole of Ecuador. The compost toilets are fun, with amazing views and the food is good (but not fantastic compared to lots of better meals I had elsewhere). I checked out after only one night and went to stay in town for half the price at a locally run hostel.
