    I loved this hostel!!! It has some of the comfiest beds I've ever stayed in. They have a guest kitchen which is fully stocked and better than most while also having a restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The food here is better than any restaurant you will find around Quito, very high end for a great price. Breakfast is $3.5 and dinner is $5, but if you book I'm person/their website instead of here you get 1free breaky! & Definitely make sure you stay for one of Gabby's Saturday night pubcrawls!

    This hostel is amazing, awesome staff, good location, better food. First the location is good, easy to get to with a bus or tram. The food is a huge perk. With vegan and vegetarian options. The owner Marco is awesome, he makes you feel welcomed, and is a great guy to talk to! Gabby also helped me out a outrageous amount. She went way above and beyond and helped me get a vaccination at a hospital since I don’t speak Spanish. I can’t thank her enough! Stay at the other 2 also, it’s worth it.

    We' ve been travelling for quite a while and this was one of the best hostels we stayed so far. Staff is super friendly - and not in a fake superficial way - and give you all the insigt infos you need ! The breakfast and dinner is yummi and worth the money, rooms are big enough, have windows and are clean. There are daily acitivties you can participate or not- at 11pm the party continues somewhere else, so you can go the bed in peace and quiet if you don't want to join.. thank you very much

    I LOVED this place. Staff were helpful, friendly and awesome. The location is great. It's clean, comfortable beds. The breakfast is AMAZING and only $3.50. I especially loved the free yoga classes (offered twice daily) on the rooftop overlooking the city. Such a beautiful view and a great way to start the day. I'll be back.

    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.

    Really fun place! Lots of chances to meet people and party, but it's never loud late at night. Really comfortable beds and loved the separate communal kitchen on another floor, felt like a nice space to step away from the social scene and cook a meal

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at in terms of atmosphere, people, and FUN. Also probably the BEST hostel food I've ever had. Incredible staff, amazing environment, and a stellar location with a solid travel service right next door--stay here!

    We loved community hostel!. Wonderful, friendly staff, absolutely incredible food (restaurant quality!), fun atmosphere! Not the greatest neighborhood but we felt safe enough and it’s not far from any of the major attractions. Great walkng tour offered from hostel and attached tour Office for day trips. Only negatives were that the room was cold. No heat in he building. (They did provide an extra blanket) and not enough hot water for showers. Rooms could also use some hangers and a mirror.

    Such a great hostel! The staff here make it amazing and make you feel so welcome. Also the breakfasts and dinners are UNREAL! Great place to meet people with activities every night and they have a sound curfew after 11pm. Great Wi-Fi, lockers under each bed, big comfy beds and warm showers. It was so great I went and stayed at Community Baños!

    Some of the staff are more interested in partying than helping the guest (not all some were very helpful). Get the feeling they may be volunteers. The beds are comfortable, showers good, the food looked nice but drinks are expensive, security can be a bit lax and it's slightly out of town in an area that feels a bit dodgy at night.
