I enjoyed my stay and specially the BBQ evening dinner. Most of the staff is really sympathic.

Eh. Is okay.


I[m still there .Centra loclation .Nice breakfast included .Lots of Security and police .I would return .


This hostel was great. The location was about a twenty minute walk to old town, but right in the middle of the bar scene. Staff was great and helpful when answering questions. Only downside was there were only two showers upstairs, but good water pressure and lots of hot water. Met some great people and really enjoyed this place.


Todos great!!! Big problem with the beds, they fixed it though...


Would like to mention that Andres, one of receptionists, is extremely helpful and friendly. He makes the hostel atmosphere very good.

One individual bathroom upstairs and one individual bathroom downstairs - seems like a very small number for a hostel when people need to get ready, etc., in the mornings. Breakfast was unimpressive - toast and a yogurt packet. That said, the staff was super nice (even remembered my name!) and the other facilities were good - bed had electrical outlet next to it and lockers were provided.


The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hostel was basic, clean and comfortable. The location is great for La Mariscal minutes walk from the centre . Short walk for the city tour bus.. Would certainly recommend .


This is a fantastic hostel with a great, social environment. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and I met countless fun backpackers who wanted to hang out during the day and night. It is also in a very central location right in the heart of the Mariscal area. The only negatives are that I am a tall guy and the beds were a tad short and I received a small electrical shock when I touched the shower nozzle...not huge or painful but a bit strange. Overall, I will come back when in Quito!


Definitely a party hostel, close to the action which makes it a bit noisy. Only 2 small bathrooms for all of the dorm rooms - gets a bit messy. Good fun for a night or two.


Stayed for two nights and due to overbooking was upgraded to a private room for both nights at no extra cost. Staff is nice and helpful, and good areas to sit in mingle. The only thing was that there was a very strong smell of mold in the room and it could even be seen on the walls. Other than that, good location and very safe.
