This hostel had some good social spaces and a vibrant, friendly atmosphere, without being a loud '''party hostel''. The staff were always helpful with good advice on things to do and how to get there. It was very clean, secure, and also had a great kitchen. The location was excellent for visiting both the Historical centre and Mariscal areas of the city. Would highly recommend!

Great hostel! Wonderful staff who are super helpful. Bunk rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. Two cozy common rooms - a bar and a TV room with tons of movies. Also a lovely rooftop terrace. Showers could use an upgrade.

This is the best hostel in Quito! Close to the old town, marked, resturants and other turist atractions. The owner, Sandra is so lovley and helpfull!

I really enjoyed my stay there, the staffs were friendly and the kitchen is awesome, even tho I mostly only use it to heat my left over food. If I ever come back to Quito, I would definitely stay here again

The hostel is good value for money. The kitchen is spotless and well equiped. The movie room is good and there are plenty of clean bathrooms. On the other hand, the staff are a bit uncaring.

Thank you for your review. I wish you had given us a specific example when the staff was not prepared to help you and we acted in an "uncaring" manner. We take pride in our customer service therefore the staff rating is at 93%, for a reason. Thank you for extending your stay with us.

Loved staying here! Beds were comfy, showers had hot water, kitchen was amazing--had anything you could need, happy hour was a great bonus. Sandra and her volunteers were very personable, helpful, and knowledgeable about the city/surrounding area. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

If you are looking for a quiet, clean and convenient hostel in Quito with spacious dorms, a well-appointed kitchen, hot showers and a warm and inviting atmosphere then you really need to look no further than the Revolution. All of this is carefully orchestrated by the owner, the indomitable Sandra, who will recognise you by name, introduce you to other travellers and quietly ensure that your time in Quito is both enjoyable and rewarding. Outstanding value for money. Strongly recommended.

Firstly this is not a party hostel, if that's your thing go to La Mariscal. This hostel was really social and had a great atmosphere, great communal areas and TV room with English DVDS. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and it had hot water a the time. Helpful staff to tell you where to go and how to get there. Great location in the middle of the historical centre and a short cab ride to La Mariscal. A brilliant hostel and a great stay!! Thank you Sandra

We had an excellent stay at this hostel. We were only there for one night and arrived rather late but we were very impressed with how this hostel is run. The hostel owner is extremely nice. We were able to stay and use the facilities the entire day after we checked out. The kitchen was very organized and the entire place was extremely clean. The owner recommended a great walking tour and also arranged a ride to the airport for us. Overall great experience.

We only stayed 1 night as a stop between Galapagos and Colombia. It seemed like a great base for exploring Quito. The staff had lots of information about the city and the hostels kitchen seemed to be well used.

Hostel Revolution was the best hostel I have stayed by now! It's very well organised, much information about Quito is spread out across walls and cupboard desks. The kitchen was the cleanest and most well organised kitchen I have seen so far in a hostel (fresh, dry towels in abundance!). On top, the staff is ever so helpful! This leaves me to recommend this hostel by any thinkable means!

I found the hostel very welcoming place to stay. It was a bit quieter than some of the other hostels I have stayed in, although not in a bad way. The reception was manned mostly by volunteers whilst I was there, so their knowledge of the area wasn't as good as a local but they did their best to help out. The hostel is well placed next to Simon Bolivar Metro bus station, a bit more of a walk from La Mariscal or the colonial quarter. I enjoyed my visit and would stay again.

Wonderful atmosphere close to many beautiful churches, parks, and cheap food. The showers were always clean and had hot water. The beds were even made for us every morning. Also, the kitchen had everything a backpacker on a budget would need to make a good meal on the cheap. The staff was good, with the exception of the owner. She was short both with her staff and with guests. I would recommend this hostel.
