I booked a 4 bed dorm but ended up in a 10 bed dorm with one bathroom between us, there is only one other bathroom in the common area. The staff are friendly and helpful, Internet was problematic but seem ok by the time I left after 7 nights. Location is ok, but the old town is about 10 mins walk and it's up hill all the way back! The Saturday I stayed, there was a big party near the hostel and the sound traveled, nothing they could do but be aware.


Fantastic hostel. Great facilities, lots of open common areas. Staff incredibly helpful, particularly Nico! Hard to leave this place!


The stafstaff waswas wonderful! They had info on how to get to many places without using a tour agency, which saved us a lot of timetime and money. They were also there to answer any questions we had. The beds were comfy and warm, wifi really fast and the atmosphere was friendly and bright. Would definitely staystay again.

Thank you for your visit, and your nice comments. We loved to host you!


Very comfy beds! Showers were adequately warm with decent pressure. The kitchen was well stocked, but it's best to cook early if you want to garantee a spot on the stove. Staff were very friendly and helpful with directions and any questions.


My experience while staying at Minka hostel was pretty great! The staff was very friendly, the facility was clean and nice had a really good vibe and great common area to interact with others. It would be nice to have a shower room rather than 1 shower for so many people in a dorm, but it wasn't a deal breaker.


Very nice hostel well situated just by the basilica. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It has everything you want from a hostel. I will be back soon!


Nice clean hostel with comfy bed and a good location next to the basilica. It had a good communal area upstairs but as it's a small hostel it was quite quiet so maybe not the best for solo travellers.


Very good location! And very nice crew as well!


Nice hostel with very helpful staff. Rooms are clean. Terrace is very pleasant The 4 dorms bedroom is rather noisy (as it is on the street side)


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
