We enjoyed our stay here. They have a lovely garden. We were tired so we didn't leave the hostel too often we were more there on a pit stop on the way to banos. The staff was great and helpful. The location it's hard to say because I didn't feel too safe anywhere in Quito. They are located near an awesome brewery though if that's your thing.

Great hostel, comfortable clean rooms, all the facilities you need, good location and excellent staff. Would highly recommend!! The Irish guy who works on reception is particularly helpful.

Lovely old house in a very quiet area, it doesn't feel like being in a huge city as Quito. Staff is great and the place is super clean. A wonderful bonus is grinding your own organic coffee beans for breakfast or an afternoon sip. The only area that lacks a bit is the kitchen which could be better equipped. Internet tends to be a bit unreliable in the evenings. Other than that a fantastic place to stay! We came back here after a trip to Mindo and would certainly recommend this hostel.

The staff here are too wonderful and helpful, they answered my questions instead of allowing us to be lost and helpless. The cupcakes baked by the staff were too tasty, we're unimpressed by our weight gain. We lacked a feeling of hardship and the breakfast is far too satisfying. It's too close to all the places we wanted to go, I prefer to spend all of my time trying to get places. (Actually our stay was awesome, after the first night it felt like our home away from home).

Amazing staff! Very helpful and friendly. We loved our stay at Colonial House Quito. The hostal is very close to Plaza Marin metrobus station which is really nice to move around Quito easily. Right next to peaceful Itchimbia Park. Very nice place to stay.

The hostel has a nice vibe to it but rather funky. The whole place could use some simple modernizing & making things easier for the guests. A coffee machine with either ground beans or at the least, an electric grinder and a variety of teas would be so easy and basic. Lists of current & fun events going on in the area with their locations along with a suggested food, drink & shopping list would be most welcomed. The rooms could use a make over with better lighting & bottle of water.

We enjoyed our stay a Colonial House. Our room was large, clean and had furniture (tables, chairs). There are several places to relax including a garden area. The staff was great. They were extremely helpful and friendly

+: Great location if you want to be a little bit further from the touristy and less authentic new town Great recommendations for local places from the staff Chilled atmosphere & plenty of common space Comfy beds, extra blankets -: Soundproof is inexistent, however the place was always quiet after 11pm Rather late breakfast, never managed to get one during the week long stay Hot water is a luxury, which is not a problem, but if you stay on the ground - have to go outside to get to the banos

we had a great stay at colonial house. The only change I would make is that the bathrooms with no window need to be cleaned daily. Ours stank after the first day & the smell seeped under the door into the room even with the door closed. The bin at least needs to be removed.

I stayed in a private room which had a beautiful view! The hostel had great facilities including the kitchen, eating and lounging areas. Staff are amazing! Props to Jens, he is great ! I spoke no Spanish and they were all very good to me. Awesome breakfast. Id stay there again if I came to Quito.

Great place. The staff were extremely helpful, and it's an easy walk to the Old Town. If you're someone who goes to bed early, be aware sound echoes quite a bit (I was on the first floor and could hear everything from the games room downstairs and at the back). Having said that,it was always quiet when I went to bed (around 11). House rules seem to limit activities (eg playing pool) after that time.
