Fantastic hostel. Accomodating staff who were always eager to help out. Really enjoyed staying here. Great, hot shower too. Renovations are underway so it will be an amazing place to stay in a central location to bars etc when they're finished. I highly recommend staying here!

During our stay they were renovating and there was dust everywhere. The location was good, it's easy to go to New Town and go out there.

I didn't find in the hostel what I found on the internet. They are still reforming the structure and the staff don't know the suficient about the touristics points in the city to talk to the costumers.

Honestly the construction going on here is intense and starts pretty early in the morning. The staff was friendly and helpful but definitely stay at another hostel until they are completely done with construction. We ended up going across the street to blue house because the construction was messy and loud.

Indeed we apologize for the trouble but it is in order to serve you better, we are working on 10 showers in total, one sauna room and a jacuzzi hot tub, thanks for you comprehension.

Didn't like the vibe of this hostel and the facilities. Bed was uncomfortable and shaky so not good to rest. The ground in the rooms is old wood so if someone is walking it's really loud and wakes you up. Also the room was smelling bad Toilets and showers seems to be have been built provisionally, not really inviting to shower or go to toilet. ( some toilets were dirty) The doors of the showers/ toilets are not high enough so if you are there you can be seen. U have to mention the deposit of HW

The place seemed kind of messy at first but apparently they're doing renovations -- I've heard that before. But this seems to be for real. Great communal atmosphere as well. Staff was very friendly but I wasn't happy when one employee offered to extend someone's stay without asking me first. I had been in this employee's presence for an hour prior to that & they didn't bother asking me as they sold the last bed. Luckily, they're surrounded by other hostels. Owner OK'd me to come by any time.

Make sure you remind them you paid a deposit. The girl at reception tried to charge us the full amount without deducting the deposit. Apart from that, great hostel. Really nice atmosphere, great location free coffee/tea and towels, decent pool table.

Despite the terrible name, Vibes is like that friends house you go to where there will always be some good friends cooking some food or having a drink. The kindness, sincerity, hard work, and attention to detail of Santiago, Molly, and the rest of the staff make your stay smooth and comfortable. The location is unbeatable because let's face it - you're not going to have a few drinks at a church in the historic center, you're going to drink here and then have a short stumble home. 100 stars.

One of the best hostels i've been to in South America! Staff goes the extra mile to help. Plus I met some awesome people in the hostel, who i've spent christmas time with, inlcluding a memorable xmas diner :). Theres a huge television with comfy couch, a bar, pool table and the wifi is superfast.

Really great staff and owner. Santiago is a crazy funny guy with the best laugh and so helpful :) it's not a party hostel but you are close to all the bars if you feel like partying. Close to the bus to old town as well. The kitchen is good and the showers too. There were not too many people when I stayed but met some great people and the atmosphere is nice and chilled. Would definitely recommend it

Had a great time, the owner took us to the viewpoint of the city, where we had a great time. Everything was very nice, (except for the coffee which seems to be a contstant in ecuador). Would definitely return if i return to quito

Bathrooms were kept very clean. Showers were hot with good water pressure. It was a short walk to the main square, markets and restaurants.

After bouncing around from hostel to hostel I can honestly say this will be the only hostel I stay at whenever I am in Quito! It does not even feel like a hostel it feels like home away from home! The atmosphere and energy in this place is just so amazing it is literally nothing but awesome "Vibes". & Since i have stayed here MULTIPLE times already I can truly say all the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are really clean, I have never had a cold shower, and the kitchen is also super clean!
