So we stayed here after a berry hight recommendation on hostel world. All staff very unhelpful and overall atmosphere was terrible. Never coming here again

What a total dump. THIS HOSTEL OFFERS FREE TAXIS IF YOU POST A GOOD REVIEW. The rooms are dirty (although the bar and tv are alright) but mainly the manager is a real creep. He also kept everyone up having an orgy in the bar... But I'll let you know your own decision..

The hostel messed up a few things, as a tip : give the beds numbers so that people dont have to switch beds everytime a new person comes in! The showers didnt work the last day and the whole time I was there, i never saw any free tea! Stay was good, mainly because of the location and other facillities like all the movies they have!

We do have numbers sadly many people are just not considerate to other guests and even worse to the staff so they do as they want , we would have solved any problem if you had told us , try next time and you will see how the staff can help you rather than waiting to find a little imperfection so you can complain online. Thanks

Good and spacious hostel located in the middle of the city, not too far away from the historical center (ca 30 min walking). The atmosphere is relaxed, and there's a not too expensive bar in the hostel which serves until midnight. From there it's never hard though to continue on the numerous bars/clubs just a couple of blocks away.

The staff was very friendly. Nice hot showers, and I liked the bar, a good place to relax with other travellers.

Vibes was great. Very well located. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bar in the hostel was great to have (especially when all the bars are empty). I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Nice hostel and the location was perfect. The staff were friendly. Showers were warm but the floor got really wet and only got cleaned once a day. The kitchen was okay but wasn't the cleanest.

Quito airport is 1.2 hours away but the hostel has a taxi service, use it as if is cheaper than the local alternatives. Thanks for letting us in at 2am!

Comfortable rooms although difficult to get onto the top bunk, good atmosphere, free coffee all day, helpful staff. Bathrooms could be better.

Please note, this is not a particulary good hostel, but the owner has put up signs saying if you give the hostel a good review then you get a free tour or reduced taxi ride when you leave.

Hot water, strong wifi, great movie room and 2 minutes walk from the bar and party area. Nice and cozy atmosphere. Not a party hostel, but that's perfect since it's located at the bars area.

Stayed at Vibes on two separate occasions over the last week or so and both stays have been brilliant. The rooms are a great size and not crammed with beds like some hostels. The beds are comfy, bathroom facilities great. Staff are really helpful and Santiago the owner is top.

Hostel is a bit run down. There was never coffee ready in the morning. Hostelworld messed up my reservation but the hostel staff handled it well. Id give it an average. Not bad but i didn't think much of it. Not worth the reviews it has but that's probably because they offer free trips to people who leave good reviews.

Owner Comment (Hide)
hello ! thank you, probably we get some good reviews because we can handle well problems like your messed up reservation but above all because we have a great place, I dont know your standards but if you couldnt have fun here I hardly think you can have a good time anywhere else, also please read more, there are a few reviews like yours that are not nice at all, the websites online encourage us to encourage people to leave reviews and that is what we do, thank you

Minimalist dorm room, lot of common areas, but the place feel a bit depressing., dark regarless of the weather. Main interest is the location, 2 min walk of frosch square.

Vibes Hostel was the perfect place to stay for me. It's nice located in the middle of the zona rosa of Quito. A lot of good and different restaurants, bars and discotecas are all within walking distance of just some minutes. I really liked the helpful staff, the two nice rooms to hang around with huge flat-tv's, pool&soccer table, bar with fair prices (ladies night on wed: drinks for free -> nice atmosphere ;) ), the very clean 4 people dorms with nice matresses etc. i stayed eight nights.
