    Perfect place for a stay in Quito. They go out of their way to create a great vibe for everyone, in my case particularly regardless of age !! It's big enough to provide all the facilities you could need, but intimate enough that everyone knows your name. The ability to generate all the tour options you could possibly want makes it a great one stop shop. Peter, New Zealand.

    The most friendly, welcoming staff and volunteers I've met in 3 months of traveling!! The family style dinners and social events each night are great for getting to know people! Very much recommend if staying in Quito.

    I had a great time at Community. The staff was so accommodating and kind to us, especially when many of us were stuck in Quito due to road closures. The vibe is the hostel is super social without being party-focused, and it was really easy to make friends. The only drawback for me is the location, which is pretty convenient during the day but lacking after around 7pm.

    This a great hostel for all ages and all nationalities. The staff are incredibly helpful with multiple languages spoken. The dorm beds are very comfortable, sheets are clean and there is a plethora of bathrooms. The evening meals were great value and very tasty. During the day the hostel is a short walk from the historical area however at night this location is not particularly safe. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this hostel over the chains such as masaya with their arrogant staff.

    Best hostel I've stayed in so far after 2 months of traveling. If you are solo traveling you are guaranteed to meet a ton of people here. I came back two times. The hostel is not in the best area so be aware of that, but that is the case for all the popular hostels in Quito.

    What an awesome place. What makes it so great is the staff. Everyone is helpful, fun, and happy. They plan community meals and games and events to get ppl doing things together and socializing. It was a great stay. The food was amazing, real culinary talent. I want to come back here.

    This hostel has a great atmosphere. Lots of bathrooms available, rooftop and kitchen able to use. They offer breakfast and dinner for an additional cost. The area where the hostel isn’t safe to go out in at night, however that’s quite a lot of Quito and not specific to this hostel. The 6 bed room is connected to an 8 bed room as well which can be noisy.
