On top of our daily activities we offer scrumptious homemade breakfasts and dinners that are unmatched here in Ecuador.

    I almost never give hostels a 10, but this place really deserves it. They saw it was my birthday and made a little thing of it which was great: many thanks to Indy and all the rest! There are communal meals, activities and great common spaces; you’re almost guaranteed to meet some cool people and have fun. There are lots of toilets and theres hot water, it’s all very clean and the beds are the comfiest ever. Somehow they even organized a small neighbourhood parade! ;) For sure the place to stay.

    I really enjoyed staying at the Community hostel - the team there was incredibly helpful and made me feel very safe during the unrests that were unfortunately going on while I was staying in Quito. They organized cook-outs, karaoke, game-nights and provided a great setting to get to know other backpackers and the city. I can wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Community hostel and will definitely return! Cheers, Max

    Loved staying at Community Hostel the staff were really friendly and helpful. Indie and Jiitske especially went above and beyond to help keep everyone happy. I felt really looked after despite being in a difficult situation with the recent unrest in Quito. Would definitely stay again, very clean, great showers and good food.

    100% the place to stay in Quito if you are looking to immerse yourself in the culture of the beautiful city as well as meeting people from all over the world. I was only there for 2 days but the people I met, both staff and other travelers, were absolutely incredible. The hostel is in prime location and the rooftop has the most amazing views. They are the meeting center for the free walking tour which is a MUST! Everyday they have something new going on and are so very friendly. Food is amazing!

    Everything is close to perfect. 2 things need to be improved 1) There is no hair dryer 2) Smell of the mould from the wardrobes.

    The perfect place for solo traveler! It's really easy to get connected and the staff is super helpful with everything. The bathrooms are huge and well equiped. Only thing is that the dinner is a bit pricy, at least the veggie option which only contained vegetables (maybe lower the price for the veggie option?), but it's easy to find something good and cheap on the streets around, so no reason not to stay here.
