The hostel is just a few steps away from the historical center in a dead end road with little traffic so it was quiet. It was the cheapest private room I had in Ecuador and sleeping quality as well as cleanliness were good. During my 2 stays at the hostel there was only one young man doing all the work,...

Everything is good. The price for a single room is only USD11. It is very near to the old city area. The room is nice and clean. The only thing that I have problem with the hostel, and it is very important, is that there is no hot water for shower. So, I would highly recommend this hostel for those...

The staff were incredibly rude and unwilling to help us. We asked the night before we left for a cab to be arranged for the morning...that didn't happen. They tried to charge us $44 when we owed $36 according to our booking. The walls are paper thin. There was some sort of party down the street until 1 am one...

I booked a room at this hostel 5 days in advanced, when I went to check-in they told me they were full for that day. They had made a mistake, which is fine, I told them I understood and they offered to take me to another hostel for that night, and I was to return in the morning and check...

This is the first of a number of reviews from our recent adventure, Quito to Bolivia. My wife and I met some interesting travellers at the Posada Colonial, lazing early evening with a beer on the roof terrace – (great views). We had expected the weather to be a lot colder in early March than it was – In fact...

In 2006 we stopped 3 times at this cozy Posada where we met that nice couple always ready to give us the best. Sometime a place is not just about a bed or a toilet. So on our way back from Galapagos we decided to stop again. Not much change except the mattress who was a lot more comfortable that...

We wanted a cheap place in Quito just to lay our heads in between trips. Also somewhere we could keep a bag or two when we were in Galapagos and hiking in the Andes. The owner is friendly but we hardly saw him, the main guy is also friendly but very hard to find and is very vague (maybe always...

We stayed at this hostal located near Quito's La Ronda historical district for about a week. The rooms are spacious but no-frills. The rooms with private bathrooms are a great deal though the bathroom was microscopic. There is hot water, you just have to let it run for 5 minutes to get up to temperature. The non-private bathrooms were huge...

The best thing about this hostel is the location. Close to the center and very close to La Ronda, a street where we ate dinner almost every night. The owner and helper are nice. It is pretty basic, but we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. There was even a kitchen and huge dining room that was almost empty. Although we are...

We stayed at Hostal La Posada at the start of Semana Santa. First time in Ecuador and first time in a hostel sharing a room with friends.
