I originally planned on staying for 2 nights, but liked it so much that I stayed 4 more nights. The hostel has a really good vibe, is clean and safe, and the best part: happy hour from 5:30 to 7:30! Sandra, the owner, and the rest of the staff are all very kind and helpful. They gave me advice on getting around in Quito and also helped me with going to Mitad del Mundo, Otavalo, and the Galapagos Islands. When you check in, ask about Peter's free walking tour - it's a great way to see the city.

Besides the fact that it is super clean, actually has hot water and is in a great location, the atmosphere is one of the best I´ve ever stayed in. Everyone is so friendly and warm and it is so easy to meet people, get information on things to do in and around Quito, and feel like you are ¨home¨ for whatever amount of time you are there for. And most important, the owner is amazing and genuinely wants everyone to be safe and have a good time. Thanks Sandra, for the lovely stay!

Handy location between old town and the Mariscal area with all the bars, restaurants, etc. Great main common area, I particularly enjoyed watching the World Cup games there. The TV is massive and had all the games on in HD and English commentary. Small hostel without too many rooms which gives it a nice homely feel and contributes towards a nice social atmosphere. Very clean, friendly staff, decent hot showers, fast wifi. Hard to fault this place one of my fave hostels in S America

Thank you Sandra for a lovely 9 nights in Hostal Revolution. I planned to stay for 3 but was so comfortable and felt so welcome, it was a no brainer to stay the extra time. Best hostel kitchen in South America. Kind and helpful staff, and big, comfortable dorms. Will be sure to send fellow travellers to Revolution.

I have stayed in a couple different hostels in Quito and this one was by far my favorite. Its small, clean, and everyone is super friendly. Will definitely be staying here again!

Location is secure, and allows access for both old and new towns of Quito. Everybody working in the hostel are nice, and receptive to any needs you may have.

I would totally recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Quito. It's conveniently located right between Old Quito and New Quito. A quick walk in either direction will get you to the best restaurants, bars, and shops Quito has to offer. It's also just a block away from a beautiful park. The owner hails from Europe and has spent many years working in Canada which makes it easy for communication. She's very a accommodating and extremely helpful to all her guests. Awesome place to stay!!

Great chilled out hostel in the middle of the city. Excellent kitchen and bathrooms with a great dvd room and common area.

Really nice hostel- if you're looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing. Best shower I've had in South America so far (and that's a lot of cold/ weak showers), well equipped kitchen and the entire hostel is immaculate. Comfy beds- if you're on top there's no ladders so you have to take a lady like leap of faith but it's always fun at the end of the day. Would definitely recommend.

Very average hostel. Recommend staying elsewhere. I don't have anything positive to say about the place.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I am sorry we could not live up to your expectations. Having plenty of hot water, clean facilities, a comfortable bed, high speed internet, well equipped clean kitchen, helpful staff and opportunity to meet other backpackers might not be anything positive to you. I hope it helps others when deciding where to stay.

Very friendly place, it felt like home. Staff always very willing to help and very knowledgeable. Big kitchen and great clean hot showers. Good roof terrace and comfy beds.et a lot of interesting and cool people there. Location good for both old and new town and nearby shops for daily needs including a fast cheap laundry. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thanks Revolution team!

This is easily the best hostel I have stayed at in 6 months of travel in South America. The owners clearly know exactly what a backpacker needs! The location is good, the hostel is clean with a good kitchen, a nice relaxed atmosphere & the staff go out of their way to help out - it really is great. 5 stars.
