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.

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.


Loved my stay at this hostel. The staff are really friendly and helpful and there is a great atmosphere in the hostel with really good communal areas. The location is also great, right in the middle of lots of bars, nightclubs and restaurants and within walking distance of the old town. Whether you want a chilled few nights with DVDs or a place to party, vibes is the place to go to, I really recommend it!


I definitely had a great time in vibes. it is the best hostel i have stayed so far in ecuador. Vibes is very well located, closed to all the bars and restaurants! Excellent, clean bathrooms and warm showers. The beds are comfy. staff was very nice and helpful. Santiago, the owner of the place will make sure that you have a great stay! I defenitely recommend vibes if you're passing by quito !

Good hostel for what it is. Staff was great. Great location if you want a place in La Marissa. It's definitely a party hostel, so if that's you, its prefect.
