overall good hostel with good location. The draw back is lack of enough glasses and cups for hot drinks.

Its great to stay so close to Old Town in Quito and this hostel is all great value for money. I rated staff as average as if you get one of the full time members of staff they are really great and can help you with everything. They also have lots of volunteers who just have the information from a book so it can be a bit more hit and miss getting help from them. But overall this was a great hostel and base for Quito.

worth to stay, breakfast is the best and everzything was really clean. You just have to hike a little mountain and on sundays its kind of hart to find food around the hostel - BUT DEFINTELY WORTH TO STAY THERE

great atmosphere, loved this colorful place! We felt at home, so ended up staying 5 nights. The hostel is next to the market, so you can buy fresh products and cook them in their kitchen. Also, the laundry service is a big plus!

Nice big dorm room and a decent hot shower. One of the quietest sleeps that I've had in a while. Breakfast was definitely worth paying for. No real atmosphere as the common spaces were kind of spaced out. Would stay again if I wanted a relaxed, quiet place.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Room large and clean. Downside is the breakfast was not great. The location was a little unsafe at night but quiet.

The staff here were all excellent. But the hostel is in a part of the Old Town which isn't near anything. I was there fora week and most of the buildings in the surrounding streets were closed each day. One decent restaurant, only open for 4 hours at night. Most frustrating is the complete lack of a place to securely store your belongings. Had to keep passport and money belt locked in owners chest of drawers. Breakfast is excellent. Hot water in shower on third floor only.

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.
