I stayed twice at Minka and loved it! The staff and volunteers are very friendly and help you with whatever you need. You can buy a wide range of breakfast at the hostel (prepared in front of you). Location is good, rooms have big lockers and are clean. Showers were always warm and clean. Only downside was the kitchen, but eating out is so cheap you shouldn't be cooking ;) Would defo stay again + recommend!!

I had an awesome time at Minka! The staff were really cool and really accommodating and flexible for the tours/sites we wanted to do/see. Lovely photographer Thyago also got some creative pics of us at La Mitad Del Mundo. It’s also in a safer part of Quito as opposed to La Mariscal. The atmosphere was awesome and we met a lot of interesting people staying/ working at Minka. The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of hot water in the showers at times. I loved Minka!

Minka staff were very helpful. The hostel was clean and had warm showers. The location was near the bus pickup and close walking distance to the historical district. Very good stay.

Great hostel, all the staff were really helpful and answered all questions for future travels! Rooms and bathrooms always kept clean and great wifi! 2 mins walk to the bus line so you can access anywhere in Quito easily. I was happy as I wanted a couple chilled days but if you're in Quito to party this isn't for you but all in all fantastic stay! Thanks guys!

Good hostel. Location is right in the historic center where there are plenty of places (food, sites, etc) to walk to, but the hostel itself is on a quieter side street. Staff were very friendly. Shared bathrooms were very clean. Vibe was pretty calm. Common space was on top floor so didn't disturb dorms. Only issues: check in is at the top floor, all stairs, so be ready to haul your bag (or leave it on a lower floor), and there are very few outlets around. You may have to search them out.

Good hostel overall. Rooms were clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The pool table is unfortunately in pretty bad shape and only has ten balls, but otherwise our stay here was great.
