Stayed in 2 different private rooms which were really spacious and very clean. Hostel has good friendly vibe and decent common area with a billiard and foosball tables. The showers weren't that great in either room but had decently warm water. Good wifi and the $3.50 breakfast was worth it. We would stay here again.

Advice on travelling to other local areas is available as well as a link to a local tour company. The place is a little tired...

I travelled throughout Ecuador for 2 months and this was my favorite hostel. I came back at the end of my trip because it felt like home. The breakfast is a bit more expensive than at the local restaurants, but the lovely fruit salad and real coffee are definitely worth it. A few of the rooms have 3 beds, and...

We stayed in a room off the garden away from the main building that may once have been stables but is now quite adequate accommodation. It was a little cold at night but warm blankets are provided as is towels,...

During your trip in Ecuador, Quito figures as the central hub in the country. In the 3 times that we visited Quito, we stayed in Colonial House. We felt very welcomed in this comfortabele hostel. The staff is nice, beds are great and they have an awesome gameroom. We would definately stay again!
