Aleida's hostal has a great location, close to la Mariscal, surrounded by great restaurants. The rooms are nice and clean and the breakfast great! But most of all, Elena, who runs the place, is the warmest and most helpful person you'll meet. She makes you feel right at home and takes amazing care of you. We will most definitely go...

Quito was the first stop on our backpacking trip throuth S.A. We booked 3 nights at the hostel from home after reading great things in Lonely Planet, and we are soo glad we did! Elena (the owner and your new best friend) stayed awake til midnight (when we flew in) to greet us at the door. The environment is very...

It is the first place my boyfriend and i stayed for 2 nights arriving in Quito and we came back at the end of our trip for 3 nights. We couldn't have picked a better place to start our journey. Elena welcomed us as if we were family and that was warm and reassuring. The breakfast tasted very good. Elena...

Elana, the owner, is definitely the main reason this Hostel gets such good ratings. She is a warm and wonderful person and works very hard to make sure your stay is comfortable. That said, I found our room (number 13) to be very average. It was small, the bathroom was so cramped that the toilet was almost directly under the...

My wife and I stayed here on 2 occasions over a one week span. Both times were amazing. Elena, the manager is very accommodating and is almost like having a mother there. Breakfast every morning was perfect and she was helpful in arranging rides anywhere we needed. The hostal is also located nicely, in a safe area and walking distance...

I was in Ecuador doing research, and had to come and go from Quito several times. I stayed at Aleida's every time I was in Quito. What a great experience! When I arrived in Quito Elena arranged for a taxi to bring me from the airport, and even though I arrived at 1 am, Elena met me at the door...

Elena showed sincere gratitude and helpfulness with her guests. Her place is tidy and well kept. We spent $12/night which is very impressive considering how close we were to some main streets on Quito and Plaza Foch as well. If you're trying to stay somewhere in downtown Quito this hostal is great. But if you're trying to get rowdy, this...

We stayed here for four nights, upon arrival in Quito. We booked ahead and made arrangements with Elana to have a taxi meet us at the airport.

Myself and 3 friends stayed at Aleida's hostel and had a great stay. Elena is an excellent host and is a big sweetheart. Highly recommend you stay here if you're in Quito. Cheap, clean and cozy. As well, it's in a great neighborhood. Elena is extremely accommodating to any of your needs. Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay.
