This hostel is soooo dirty and the toilets are unbelievable. They fit 2 showers and 2 toilets under the stairs. So they are very small you cannot turn around. The doors of the toilets are a joke. If you are 1.75 you can see the person inside. It is also very dirty. They never clean!! The welcome drinks dont exist anymore. It is just to attract people. Dont believe it. And dont except any rest because they party all night long and you can hear them from your room. There is also no breakfast.


Great location, friendly owner, and nice bar!

Amazing hostel. Incredible staff, great pool. Very clean. Perfect rooms. Atmosphere was great. Only negative - the purchased food was terrible. I think the chefs need more training. I couldn't eat my pesto pasta. If the kitchen served better food this place would be perfect


I stayed here for a couple nights. Lockers in the rooms with electrical outlets in them which was handy. Bathroom had 2 toilets and 2 showers on the main floor which was a bit tight but showers had hot water. There are quite a few common areas to chill in as well as a tv and a couple computers. The hostel itself is only a couple minutes away from a bunch of good bars and restaurants but it's far enough away it's pretty quite at night. Will return if I go back to quito


Everything was good and good walking distance to a lot of restaurants and stores. Would definitely recommend. The only problem that could be considered is that they make you stop hanging out in common areas at midnight. If you are trying to stay up late and hangout, this may not be the place. Other than that everything was perfect and the atmosphere was fun.

I enjoyed almost everything about The hostel apart from the kitchen which was disgusting and under equipped. We actually left the hostel because we couldn't face cooking in the kitchen. If you're not looking to use the kitchen facilities then it's a great option although laundry is frightfully expensive here.

Thank you. As there more than 40 people here using the kitchen our job it is to keep it clean all the time, we are sorry if you cleaning standards are a bit higher than the normal but again thank you anyways also laundry is cheap as any laundry place on the street, Im sorry you have to save your cents very tightly and think that the hostel is expensive.


This hostel has good potential with nice bar/commun room but although it seems like a party hostel, the bar and common area close at midnight which is a shame because there is then no where to go than the rooms where you don t want to disturb sleeping people or the very small reception which is very noisy for the dorms next to it. The staff is pretty nice but the owner is not really trying hard to make your stay enjoyable.

I have been traveling in hostels for 1.5 years and this is one of the few hostels that I can truly recommend. The location is fantastic, the actual hostel is big and spacious, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I have extended my stay here for 4 extra nights and would stay more if I didn't have to move on.

Great location close to all the bars and clubs without being noisy during the nights. Welcome drinks and free drinks during ladies nights were awesome. They also had their own pool table you could use for free. Big place with lots of common rooms to hang out in. Loved that they had several tv-rooms where you could make yourself at home, don't understand though why they closed it already at 12 in the night.. The tv-rooms was also very noisy being next to the kitchen. Very good hostel otherwise.


guys on reception were good always give you bus times as for the girl she would try and tell you there is a taxi service she doesn,t realise you are backpacking and how cheap the bus is for backpackers


We had a nice stay, would return :-) It is nothing speciel but definitely not bad.
