    I cannot speak highly enough of El Hostelito! The staff were warm, welcoming and eager to answer any questions I had. El Hostelito has a wonderful atmosphere. Of all the places I stayed in Ecuador, I felt the most “at home” at El Hostelito.

    I had an incredible stay at el Hostelito! I spent a week at the hostel and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful, and fun to be around. Ben in particular advised me on what I should see/do and helped me book tours and accommodation at great prices. He has in depth knowledge of the Ecuador tourism industry and attended to my questions to an extent I have not ever experienced even in luxury accommodations. El Hostelito is the best when it comes to meeting new friends and experiencing Quito!

    Overall a good place to stay. Staff have generally been very helpful and knowledgeable. Breakfast is offered for a small fee in the morning, free coffee/tea/filtered water, they partner with multiple tour agencies and can get you a deal on tours. Safe neighbor of Quito. If you’re a couple, the queen bed pods are probably the best deal you can find. Ended up staying multiple nights because of the pod set up.

    Good facilities with a tv with Netflix, Garden and best pool table I’ve ever seen in a hostel. Showers were basic but staff were very friendly. In particular Ben although he isn’t as good at pool as he thinks so make sure you challenge him.

    Super comfy beds, with curtains for privacy and plugs/reading lights. Also massive lockers - felt very safe. Bathrooms could've been cleaner and atmosphere was quite quiet and unsociable. Also, some staff weren't very friendly or welcoming - excluding Ben and another Italian lady who were very sweet.

    This place has the makings to be cozy, BUT, the staff was generally rude and made it feel like I was inconveniencing them by living in their home. Thursday, up after 1 a.m. because they were yelling while playing pool. Saturday, a staff member was showing new guests the room and turns on all the lights at 1:15 a.m. Two other nights, people were either watching tv or on the phone until after 12 - in the dorm. Not sure if those were staff or guests, but this is not a place to go if you want rest.

    Sadly there were protests going on in Quito when I arrived, however, the staff were not particularly forthcoming or helpful with suggestions / advice /info in general. Nice showers, comfy beds with privacy curtains. Good WiFi. OK place to stay but lacking in atmosphere and the staff need some customer service training.
