    Community hostel is one of the best hostels we have ever stayed at! We stayed for 4 nights and every night we were there there was an activity or event for us to do. The staff are young and energetic and happy to help with anything and answer every question we had. They we so understanding and accommodating after we missed our flight and had to change dates. The staff are so friendly and bubbly and made you feel welcome from the second you arrive. The breakfast and dinner are delicious. Amazing!

    The Community Hostel is one of the best hostels I have stayed. The location is perfect, in the heart of Quito. But the friendly and helpful staff is best thing about the hostel. The amazing food is also a key point to stay in the hostel. All together I highly recommend to stay at the Community Hostel.

    I can’t praise this hostel enough. We were "stuck" there in quarantine, stressed and nervous, and it was really the best place to be in times like these. Lots of activities, great staff, so clean and cosy, amazing food, lovely people. And the beds are amazing! It really felt like a home away from home. They’ll go out of their ways to make you feel good and safe. Thank you so much to Marco and the rest of the staff. We’re so grateful for all you’ve done for us!

    ++: beds were comfy enough, facilities were nice, breakfast was nice, mealtimes in general were nice, veggie options !!👍🏼 - - : Loud af if youre trying to sleep while people are in the communal area at night. No quiet time is actually enforced, showers were consistently cool (not even lukewarm but cold)

    Community hostel really lives up to its name. The staff are incredibly friendly, the breakfasts are unreal, and there is a tour desk just downstairs that can help you out with any information you need. Would recommend getting in on the group dinners - about $5 USD, super communal vibe, great way to meet people. Great hostel to stay at for solo travelers. I stayed with these guys in Banos too, just as good. Only downside is that WiFi only works properly in the communal areas.
