Due to medical issues I had to stay 2 months. Yet the staff made my stay very pleasant, the cleaning lady took good care of me when I was not feeling very well. When I got better I actually decided to stay a little longer because the atmosphere was excellent. It was easy to meet people and there was a...

Stayed in this hostel for a week and had a great time. The staff are really friendly, it's cleaned daily, and it's in a great location! Right in the heart of Mariscal, with a huge choice of places to eat, bars and clubs. My two personal favourites - the pizza place across the street ($1 a slice) and Aladdin, around...

Clean, lots of space to socialize, free breakfast and prime location! This hostel far exceeded my expectations as a solo traveller visiting Quito. Wifi was available, staff were friendly and helpful, and you could arrange tours directly through the hostel.

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. Near fun places like plaza foch. Safe área too. Only things...Beds are very small and I was worried I'd fall out of the top bunk. Also there's...

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.
