Delightful building with very clean rooms and excellent kitchen and lounge area. Safety box at reception was useful. Breakfast was excellent and included in the rate which at $45 a double ensuite room was reasonable. Staff were excellent and arranged a pick up and drop off at airport which went smoothly. Recommended.

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. We loved it! Staff was so sweet and accomodating. our reservation was screwed up. We were quoted $33 a night but discovered it should have been $60. It was more than we had wanted to spend so they offered a compromise of $45. We slept well even though in Mariscol (the...

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!

“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).”
