A great value hostel! Sandra (the owner) and all the staff were great and helpful with all of our questions. Showers are hot and beds are super comfy, the kitchen is well equipped an wifi was good even in the rooms! Traffic noise in the mornings was occasionally loud but this isn't a reflection on the hostel, just something to note :) definitely must stay here when in quito!
Good hostel to base yourself in for seeing quito..not far to walk from old town so close to the history. Sandra is doing a great job since taking over the hostel and slowly improving the place..she's a fountain of knowledge and great for a chat over a beer! Lack of breakfast is a slight downer but plenty of places nearby to fill up pretty cheap.. Definitely love to come back when more hss been improved and I'd totally stay here again now if was back in quito
This hostel had the most comfortable beds that I have slept on in months! The staff were friendly and very helpful. The owner only recently took over and is doing a great job.

I had a great time at Hostel Revolution, was planning on staying 3 days and ended up staying a week and a half. Thanks for the great stay Sandra! Its a quiter hostel which suited me great with lots of showers and lots of hot water. Happy hour beer prices also make me happy. Kitchen is available to use and is fully stocked. Also I think there are opportunities to work/volunteer at the hostel for free accomodation if you are thinking of staying for a while.

I enjoyed staying at this hostel. The owner is a crazy woman, in a good way, who is trying to make the place into something beyond awesome (she bought it 3 weeks ago). And THE SHOWERS HAVE BEEN FIXED!! It's not a large hostel and NOT A PARTY HOSTEL, so if that's what you're looking for, try somewhere else. Only downside is the lack of breakfast but there is a good cheap cafe at bottom of street and hostel has a full kitchen and near a supermarket, so eary to do it yourself.
Cozy and relaxed place. Sandra took over the hostel when we stayed there. She was very helpful and accomodating. Some of the facilities were a little run down, but she was starting to fix them up. We had a really good time there.
A new owner Has taken over the hostel since oct.1st and she is fantastic, so kind and caring and gives you loads of information about facilities in the area. Fully equiped kitchen, loads of DVDS, great wifi, à computer for guests to use. I would highly recommend. Thank you. Lorraine

The Hostel had a lovely, cosy and family-like atmosphere. I felt instantly comfortable there. The owner, Sandra, is putting a lot of effort into it to make this hostel a great place to stay and chill out. I would definitely come back!!!
A really clean and comfortble hostel with a lovely atmosphere. The staff were lovely and helped me to make friends which was important to me as I was travelling alone. The location was great as you could walk to both the New and Old towns. I preferred being in this area as opposed to Mariscal as I didn´t want a Gringo experience.
Thanks Sandra for making us so welcome & helping to resolve the lost bag issue with Iberia!!! Great hostel, nice location, was never worried about security in/around the location of the hostel - good showers & WIFI, and of course staff were excellent! Good luck Sandra
We only stayed here for one night but wish we could have stayed longer! Brilliant hostel and the owner moved us from a dorm (which would have been lovely and spacious) to a private rom for the same price as it was free , which was very kind and a great room! The owner helped plan our day in Quito and we were given a great meal as we arrived too late to go out fordinner. Would definitely recommend this place- stay there if you're in Quito!
it's in a quieter area and the hostel is pretty quiet which was perfect for us since we were getting up early every morning to do different tours around quito. It's about a 20 minute slow walk to the historical centre. my only pet peeve was the hot water....it kept going in and out! it was kind of hard to shower. but it's an older building so perhaps the other hostels have the same problem.
Very good hostel, in an excellent location convenient for the old town. We had a private double room - very comfortable, and the extra blankets were appreciated. Best of all - I left my kindle at the hostel and they emailed me to let me know (had realised on the bus to Banos...)
We enjoyed our stay here and returned from side trips 3 times. Well located, very clean (hostel cleaned daily) and with a good atmosphere. The ratio of facilities to guest is great the only thing that needs sorting is the showers (we understand that this is being looked at currently). Would recommend this cosy hostel as a great choice to meet other travellers. Beds were a great size and solid and they even make it for you every morning! When we return to Quito we will stay here again def!
Hostel Revolution is an easy walk to Centro Historico and Mariscal Sucre, and close to public transport for all of Quito & beyond. The neighbourhood seemed perfectly safe, night and day. Staff were friendly & informative. The kitchen was really good (as was the free coffee), There is a sociable bar & TV area & there was a good bunch of people there when we stayed (we booked a night & stayed a week... loads to do in Quito!) The only downside was the showers were hot & cold in cycles. Recommended.
Most comfortable beds ever! Convenient location, nice staff and great vibe. Love the TV room.
Very hospitable owner and spotless facilities. Some areas of Quito are less than reputable, however Hostel Revolution is perfectly situated between everything I wanted to see and do. HOT showers always and if they ever went out the owner Matt would gladly help out. Knowledgable and friendly staff, would highly recommend staying here if ever in Quito! Thanks HR.
Staff is Nice. Good advises from Elisa. Matt is Also Nice. There wasn many people there., wich sucks. Water from the shower kept on getting cold every 2 minutes. Rest is fine.
The Hostel is located in the Old Town and really central. The atmosphere was great, especially with the terrace and the view over Quito. We felt safe, due to the fact, that everybody needed a key for the front door. We had a great stay! Thank you for everything!
