    Very clean. I liked that they had filtered water and friendly staff. S/o to Charlie for helping us get around while we were there. There are a lot of things to do and a lot of it is walking distance. The wifi was also very good. We had an amazing stay!

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at in my three months in South America so far. The staff are very friendly and super helpful. It’s got a great vibe to meet other travelers, comfy pods, big communal kitchen, and a great location if you’re a craft beer or coffee lover.

    El Hostelito checks all the boxes for a perfect hostel experience. Their pod beds offer excellent privacy in the rooms and each pod even has its own light and power outlet. The Hostel has also achieved a perfect balance of Social but not full on party. It's almost as if everyone had the same mutual friend who invited them to hang out at his chill apartment in Quito. Just like everyone passing through El Hostelito, I'll be back one day.

    the LOVELIEST hostel - queen sized beds the comfiest we've slept in South America, the privacy curtain and the "pod experience" makes it all the more luxurious, staff are the friendliest people and will go out their way to help you. There's a giant map on the wall so you can easily plan where to go and what's within walking distance. Only 3 nights in Quito but would've stayed here longer. Not in the centre but easy to get there, MUST go to bar behind hostel: cheap, big portions, great beer.

    Amazing hostel as always. One of my favourites in the country. Great and super helpful and friendly staff, great breakfast with three options, great location. Wifi not so great, but everything else is so I’d say it’s more than worth it to stay there. Super comfortable pods as well!

    El hostelito ticks all the boxes. Free breakfast and drinking water, well equipped kitchen, tv area with Netflix, hot showers and the double pod was a novelty. The dorms are clean with big sized lockers, curtains and a personal shelf, light and plug beside your bed. Although it is a little far away from the Centro Historico it is in a great neighborhood with everything you need, including some nice coffee shops and restaurants nearby. The staff were very helpful, especially Ben! Thanks guys.

    Comfortable beds with privacy curtains! Great atmosphere and an amazing crew! Ben, Claire and everyone else were super helpful. We had a ton of fun in the hostel when it was raining outside. Pool, ping ping, beer pong, poker, movie nights, staff dinner nights and so much more. I loved my stay here. Would definitely recommend!

    This hostel has good facilities, bathrooms were clean and plentiful, good beds with reading light, shelf, charging point and curtain, great big lockers too. Good kitchen but can get a little crowded. Location is ok, a bit away from old town but taxis are so cheap it doesn’t matter, good restaurants and coffee nearby. Staff were helpful and friendly, however it did seem like most of the people staying there were volunteers, so it got a bit crowded with all of them. Would recommend.
