Fabulous guide and excellent service all around with this tour company. Alberrto was an excellent guide of historic and modern Quito and Ecuadorean life. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. You won't be disappointed "6 stars out of 5"

I booked a tour to the Amazon with this agency and the whole process was very simple for me. The agency was honest and very organised with planning my tour, also with a very short turn around. I would recommend this agency for booking tours in and around Quito.

Don't stay anywhere else in Quito. This is the nicest, cleanest and all-around best hostel in South America. The staff is amazing as is the food, showers and guest kitchen. They've thought of everything. The location is great for sight seeing too.

First of all, the staff and volunteers here are super amazing. There are great optional activities every day, and great value for money. The food is delicious and the water is hot. Great location in Old Town next to cheap local food market. Pub crawl was the best one I've been on. Thank you!

I stayed here as a trip leader with a group of 10 people in September, and we had a fantastic time! The location is close to the old town, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and we had the best breakfast of all our trip in Ecuador! What really differentiates this hostel from others though, is its staff....

better than Hostel Quito Cultural. Better vibe, more fun people, beer on tap, better organized activities. I wish I has stayed here. Instead I just socialized here, joined the free walking tour, and went back to my place after. Safe neighborhood, only a few blocks from plaza Teatro.

My boyfriend and I travelled for three weeks in Ecuador and wanted to start in Quito to see if we could find the best prices on trips around the country. We were recommended The Community Hostel by friends due to their great breakfast, and we did really enjoy that and the dinner there as well. The hostel staff is super...
