    The staff is wonderful! I am so grateful that they have 24 hour reception because I arrived later than intended but had no problems checking in at 2am. Community hostel is very welcoming and has daily activities to allow you to engage with fellow travelers, like food tours, group dinners and pub crawls. They offer free coffee and tea all day—so awesome. Great location, lots of space for storing luggage securely, multiple bathrooms, and a very cool rooftop.

    A very friendly and sociable hostel in the historic district. The rooms were comfortable & clean & the bathrooms were immaculate. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. I stayed 3 nights and then travelled to Mindo for a couple of days. On my return- they let me stay until 1am until I had to catch my bus to Colombia. The breakfasts cost extra but are well worth it!!

    Community Quito was my favorite hostel in Ecuador. From the moment you check in, the staff welcomes you and you meet the other guests. The family style dinners and activities they have are great for meeting other travelers. I would 100% recommend staying here

    I would have given this place a perfect review, but I got misinformation from staff members. I heard about the deal of booking their Banos location and getting free breakfast coupons, and I approached one staff member and about it and She said yeah, just show me the email confirmation that you booked it. I reserved the Banos hostel late that night and in the morning, a different guy was working. I showed him the email and he said no, you have to book the hostel directly with us. I was upset.

    I absolutely loved my stay at community Quito. I would recommend this hostel to everyone who wants to be apart of something. The staff are incredible, they are very inviting and it seems their goal is to get everyone Involved and connected. I wish their were hostels like this one everywhere. The name is community and they 100% represent the meaning of this word in their services and atmosphere. I also loved the food and it was extremely easy to meet people as a solo traveler!!

    Amazing breakfast and dinner! We didn't skip a meal during our stay. Very clean and friendly hostel. We got late to the hostel so the staff didn't really show us around.. There's a problem that the wifi doesn't reach the rooms AT ALL, and also alot of nois from the outside street- cars bleeping all night. Overall great hostel.

    Very Good

    This hostel is good if you are looking for somewhere super social with lots of activities planned, however if you are looking for a more relaxed experience then I wouldn't recommend it. The staff seemed to be bothered every time we asked for something, and weren't very friendly if you weren't taking part in the social activities. Breakfast is great, beds were comfy, could use more bathrooms for the number of people staying there. Overall, okay experience.
