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.


A decent hostel located in a good area of town located near bars and other nightlife.


Lovely relaxed hostel with a good kitchen, a nice tv room, good airy bedrooms, fantastic location. Really really great location close to the bars and s huge supermarket. Would recommend this hostel to any backpacker going to Quito.


Nice with the pickup from the airport but we found out it was a bit expensive, did not receive a welcome drink , bed sheets smelled old. Otherwise it was a nice hostel, fast internet good location and nice staff.!

Hello, thanks 1.pick up has got official rate and we do respect it unlike taxis who overcharge whenever they want. 2. Oh you didnt receive your little welcome drink ?? We are so so so sorry, next time try to ask for whatever you need and you will see how you can get amazing results. 3.Bed sheets are daily washed and changed. thank you


Good Hostel right in the middle of the party district. Therefore it is a good place if you want to party, but you can also hang out in the hostel and relax and watch a movie. They also have a bench and a barbell, if you want to do a workout :)


Everything was great and they even let me in early to sleep on the couch for a few hours till my bed was ready since I arrived from a night bus at 4am. This was my second time here and I will definitely be back again next time I'm in town. Thanks again for everything!


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.


Really fun place to meet fellow travelers! Many lounge areas!


Great location near restaurants and bars. Staff were really helpful as well.


great staff, extremely well equipt kitchen complete with herbs, spices and various condements!! great outdoor couch area to chill and great party area with a bar, lots of picnic tables and benches, pool table & fooseball. Connected is a lounge area with couches, beanbags and a giant TV with a large selection of movies. FREE WATER tea and coffee! and another small cozy loungeroom inside with a flatscreen tv and computers. Nice rooms with really comfy beds, hot showers! fab mix of party & relaxed


Great stay, a lot of good facilities, helpfull staff, clean, good beds.

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.
