This place was very nice and clean, relaxed atmosphere, nice garden, attentive staff, nice facilities , breakfast included. When i was there there was no activities during the night, so it was a bit boring as i was traveling by myself, apart of that, it was a nice stay

Me and a friend stayed here in January, it was okay, it wasn't overly clean but it was under $6 a night and breakfast was quite tasty. The bathroom wasn't the nicest but wasn't the worst either. An average hostel and would recommend for one or two nights.

Very friendly service, not much sign of the party atmosphere while we were there though, they had no beers available to buy on the first night so we went to the surrounding bars. Beds are simple, good storage space in the room we had, which was a 4 bed dorm ($5.60pppn). Plug sockets in the room didn't hold our adapter...

This hostel was one of the worst places I have ever stayed at! It was cold, loud, the beds were so uncomfortable, i didn't feel safe, the breakfast was average, the bathrooms were outside and the place was like a rabbit warren. The staff were unhelpful, inattentive and would rather have conversations with friends rather than check you in while...

We stayed 4 night here over a long weekend. Found it to be a ideal spot for a fun Quito weekend. Its within walking distance of numerous New Town nighttime hotspots. We had a ton of fun and met some very entertaining people... However had we not spent all day exploring the city and all night drinking, dancing and socializing-...

Noisy, dirty, shabby, crappy and no wifi, but a nice atmosphere and very cheap. If you don't have much money, this is a place to go. We moved after one night, to New Bask next door. Cheap as well, and a bit better.

We stayed in the apartment for three nights. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We especially liked that the common area of the hostel was some kind of travel guide, with lots of advice what to do, what not to do, photos and explanations of tour options for the whole of Ecuador on all the walls. We arrived on a...

“this hostel is in "New Quito". Go to "Old Quito" instead where it is much safer and cleaner. Lots of drugs, bars, and seedy folks in "New Quito". Hostal Rincon Familiar in Old Quito is 100% better for about the same price. Nice rooms and great breakfast. Quaint place in heart of Centro Quito”
