This hostel was perfect for our overnight stay in Quito. A great location, close to restaurants and not too far to walk into the old town. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. We had problems with a car we had rented and they helped us contact the car hire company. Good memories of...

If you need to visit Quito, and want to find a comfortable place in a good location, with many restaurants, and buses that can take you all over town, then this is the place. Helpful staff, good breakfast, and highly recommended.

Good value for the money. We had a room with "garden view". It was lovely to observe the humming-birds close by. We were also satisfied with breakfast. The location is pretty good, in center of town. Therefore it can be a bit loud in the evenings on weekends.

This hostel is very well located in the tourist area of Quito (Note: this is not at all the same as the old town, it is a six block area devoted to hotels, bars and restaurants, well-policed and safe). Right across the street is the Achiote restaurant which I loved. There are also some noisy bars nearby, if you want...

I was supposed to be here for 5 nights, but I am checking out after just one. I read that some rooms can be noisy so I asked for a quiet one. The place is decent enough for the price but the sound insulation is very poor - club music, car alarms, people shouting. It's a pretty noisy area and...

Located near Plaza Foch which is full of bars and nightlife, be wary at night-time as dodgy characters walk the streets of Quito. Hostel is very cute with a lovely sitting room area for chats and beers which are available for sale at low cost in the hostel. Breakfast was included for our two night stay and it was good...

Very friendly and accommodating staff and good location. Can be a bit noisy but rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was basic but very good and staff went out of their way to accommodate our large group.

Old colonial house, nicely decorated. Staff didn't speak english at all. Most rooms are either next to the tv room or next to the door. It's an old house so quite noisy inside. Rooms were very clean And shower is good. Breakfast consists of coffee, eggs And fruit juice. Location is very good in mariscal!

Great location right in Plaza Foch. We could walk to all the bars/clubs at night without feeling unsafe and walk to El Elijido (the park with the art fair) during the day. This is probably what is most important. Our room had no frills but had everything we needed. 2 comfortable beds and a shower with great pressure. Staff was...

We stayed in a room in the back of the building on a Saturday night. And that’s immediately the most negative point : there is a kind of dancing behind the hotel with loud music, and it feels/sounds like the dancing is IN your room. Music stops, however, at midnight, so if you are arriving late (like we did) or...

“Best to get room near the back, the rooms on the street can be noisy, especially late at night when the night clubbers return home.”

“Book ahead and ask for a room in the front of the building (certainly, not a room at the back if you like to sleep before midnight).”
