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

    By far one of my favorite hostels in South America! While the hostel may look basic from the outside, it has some of the comfiest beds I've slept in while traveling. There is always someone cleaning the various common rooms/bathrooms and this place has a great roof! But what really makes this place special is the staff (Marco, Gaby, Carla, Sarah, Marji). You can tell they all love what they do and will go above and beyond to make sure you have the BEST time in Ecuador :)

    What a hostel! So we spent a week here and then went to the one in banos which was just as awesome and then decided to come back we loved and missed it so much ! Cleanliness is brilliant at this hostel, Secondly the food and drinks they serve are top notch but The best thing though, hands down is the staff! Marco and the gang really can’t do enough to make you feel welcome and really go above and beyond their duty to involve everyone! From the day we got there they were so welcoming! Much love!

    The staff at Community Hostel are AMAZING!! They're friendly and helpful, they'll cook you meals meals (costs extra but well worth it) and put together daily activities where you can meet other travelers, and the hostel is associated with a travel agency downstairs where you can take care of all your travel needs within Ecuador. The facilities are nice, clean, and comfortable as well. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone stopping by Quito!

    Brilliant hostel, great atmosphere, good showers and the breakfasts and dinners are really good, WiFi is good in common areas but bad everywhere else. Only complaint would be that our 6 bed dorm was actually a 12 bed dorm with two rooms (6 beds in each) being connected by a short corridor no walls/doors separating the two.

    We switched to Community after a couple of nights at Secret Garden Quito because SG were fully booked. The pros of community are much nicer rooms (cleaner, brighter) and an epic breakfast (couple of $ extra) however SG had a better rooftop bar. Both had a nice social vibe, friendly staff and average/ patchy wifi!
