Hostel was good to book trips up from and had very good information on doing trips yourself. Although if your looking for a party vibe this is not really the place


Tranquil hostel in a well-placed location - close to the Trole and Ecovía lines and a block away from the Basilica del Voto Nacional. Short walk to the rest of the Centro Histórico. Staff is friendly and international; vibe is really chill. Facilities are clean as well. Highly recommend if you don't want to stay in the Mariscal!


The Hostel makes you feel like home. The staff was very helpful in everything we asked for and the recomendación they gave us were the best...i'll come back anytime I've to be in Quito

The atmosphere was really comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Unlike other hostels, towels are not provided and must be rented for 50 cents. I was also hoping for more of a breakfast - they offer 1 to 2 portions of bread and 1 piece of fruit (clementines when I was there).


Friendly staff and great location. I was there in low season so unfortunately it was not really busy but this place is a good location for exploring Quito


This was a really nice hostel. Lots of space in rooms and common areas. Nice kitchen and eating area and had a good system of helping yourself to the beers from the fridge and paying later. Also had a computer available for use and music all day. The room and kitchen/common areas were really clean. There is a policy of no food and drink on the rooms which is fine. But the policy of not allowing alcohol to be brought in is a bit annoying if you don't want to drink beer.


I only stayed here for 1 night due to some issues with my other hostel. The hostel is beautifully decorated, has a great common area, friendly staff and was very good value for money. The location felt a bit sketchy after dark, but is no problem if you get a cab


Nice new hostel in a decent location. We stayed three nights in 10 person dorm, beds and bathroom very good. Staff very helpful with advice and airport transfer. Recommended.


Great hostel. Not a noisy party hostel but its easy to meet people and the staff are friendly and helpful.


Minka hostel has very good location, facility and kind staff. Value for money is best of best. But we felt some cold, and there was some noise from outside at night because window was so thin and weak.
