Stayed here for a total of 1 week on 2 separate occasions. The staff is very friendly and helpful with any advice. Breakfast is nice and a bit more varied than other places.

Blue House Hostel is a great backpacker place in the middle of New Town. Is has a large cozy common area and the wifi and breakfast is great. We stayed here 3 different times, and if you are looking for a nice and quiet room, I recommend to go for the double rooms behind the building. There is no room...

My partner and I had a fantastic stay in this hostel. The staff all speak excellent English, and are all extremely kind, helpful and friendly, with abundant patience for my bad Spanish :). The dorm beds are really comfortable with plenty of warm bedding for Quito's cold nights, and the showers are great with good water pressure and reliable hot...

We couldn't sleep most of the night in this hostel. People having sex in dorm, other waking you up at 7am and making a lot of noise... Without any consideration for you! Furthermore the shower is really dirt with hair everywhere. Finally, the breakfast is not fresh, it comes from the freezer... Would recommend not to go there.

I stayed here for 6 nights whilst in Quito and cannot fault it. It has a great common area, the place is kept really clean all the time and the hosts even cooked some Colombian food one night. I'm returning to Quito before I fly out of Ecuador and will be returning here for sure.

The staff is incredibly kind and accommodating. I secured my taxi transfer from the airport for a reasonable price through the staff. They were very approachable and accommodating. The atmosphere was laid back and positive. Great location, easy to get around the city from the hostel by foot or ecovia. Only downside is that being in the club district, it...

Great location, short stroll to things, and a friendly and helpful staff make this a nice hostel option for Quito. Dorms were simple but good and I happened to meet nice travelers in this hostel. Good for backpacking.

All incidents of theft are investigated by the Police and any action taken is at their prerogative. The incident related by the guest above was also investigated by the police and the...
