Got here on a Saturday night, so naturally, it wasn't quiet. Lots of people partying, so be prepared for that if you arrive on the weekend. It's a very social hostel. The staff on duty when I arrived were helpful. The beds were sturdy; the dorm was sufficiently spacious. The staff go out of their way to make sure people...

Didn't start at this hostel and ended up staying here after joining their Saturday night pub crawl. The staff is super friendly and can answer any questions about navigating the city. There is also a travel agency connected the hostel that does a free walking tour most days, and can set up tours in Ecuador and it was a huge...

I was ill when I arrived, and at $10 per night I thought it was a little expensive. I was wrong and ended up staying for almost one week. Super comfortable beds, spacious dormitories, hot and powerful showers and everything kept spotless. The dining area boasts a large table and the kitchen has it's own in house fully trained chef,...

This hostel is top notch for so many reasons. The staff is awesome and can communicate with you in many languages. The location is in the old city making it perfect to get north and south quickly, especially as there is a bus station within a two minute walk. The rooms are clean and there's lots of bathrooms available. What...

Great hostel in a great location to the old town and Marin bus station. This was our first real experience in a hostel as a family and it couldn't have been better. The staff was welcoming and accommodating, the meals were fantastic (optional breakfast and dinner -- $3 and $5). The family style table set up also encourages guest interaction...

Usually, when we have a bad experience, we just don't leave a review at all but you gotta pop your cherry eventually and these guys really were quite rude. Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay at the hostel so I can't say how it was. We booked with them and we sent emails back and forth clarifying things like airport...

Going back and forward from different places, going back to Community makes you feel like you're actually coming back home. Everything is clean, people is really welcoming and there's activities every day. No way to be bored in Quito whether you want to go out and have fun or just chill. Food is great, even if you don't stay here...
