Great breakfast! Friendly, bi-lingual staff. Only downside is the hot water drip.


Very nice building in Old Town Quito. Great backyard with hammocks to relax. Guys who work the front desk were super helpful. Excellent security but a little lacking in atmosphere. Don't recommend the dorm room as there is only one and it is quite small and a little awkward!


The staff were extremely helpful and cheerful, the hostel in General were great in accommodating our needs, especially as we arrived in the early hours of the morning and we had to cancel two nights, they were so fast and easy to communicate with and I wish all hostels were ran like that.

Excellent environment to be in, great and inviting staff, and a lot offered both in and out of the hostel. The breakfast is inexpensive and extremely delicious, and the rooms were spacious. Appreciated the organized tours and excursions offered through the hostel as well. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone, young or old.


This hostel had everything I needed and was comfortable, quiet and great value. Service also excellent.


Great hostel in the historical centre of Quito, a big old colonial building, as the name suggests. I had a garden room which was large, and although not advertised as such, the bathroom may as well have been private for me. Friendly staff who gave good advice on things to do and see. The breakfast cost extra ($3.50), but was with every penny.


Fantastic place to stay. Staff (and volunteers) are fantastically friendly and very helpful, although the knowledge of the volunteers may vary due to not being fully acquinted with Quito and surrounding areas. Atmosphere was great, and the common areas very inviting.

The hostel is well localized, at less than 10 min walking from Quito old center. Private rooms are Ok, but bathrooms are in bad conditions (h ot water flow really limited, outdated electrical wires very close to the shower, flawed cleanliness, etc.). We found much better for similar price.


Good place, comfy bed, good wifi but not secure all systems secure.


Great hostel! I'd recommend to anyone looking for a great place in Old Town


Really nice looking place, cool garden with bunnies and a lot of space to share activities or enjoy privacy. First hostel I've been in who has a 'gym' :)


I think i will go again, its a really nice place, the staff were really friendly and also they are from differents countries so they can give u information of Quito from different views. the location was okey, but like always in Ecuador, if you wanna be in the downtown of the city you have to know that at night it isnt safe.
