    Voluntary staff were amazing... So chilled and welcoming and accomodating. I felt part of an odd family straight away and I was sad to leave. Plenty of common areas with hammocks and seating and an accessible and clean kitchen. Beds were comfy :D

    We had the best stay at Minka! The staff is the best you can wish for and so is the hostel!very spacious, well equipped kitchen,great amenities and most importantly the atmosphere. Location is fantastic too, basilica just around the corner,local market 10min walking distance, many other shops and eateries as well.We would recommend it to everyone wishing for fantastic stay in Quito! - Only suggestion is to change the bartender as he really had no idea how to make even the basic drinks.

    Nos encantó este hostal! Viajamos por un mes en Ecuador, y Minka fue nuestro hostal favorito de todos. Cada noche, había una rumba pequeña o actividad con los otros huéspedes. Hicimos muchos amigos, y fue muy difícil salir después de solo tres días. Mil gracias a Ivan por tu ayuda con todo, y amistad. Gracias Minka!!! -Hannah & Alex

    Booked one night but stayed 3! The staff here were wonderful! After a long 36 hour bus trip we were so happy to find a place that felt like a little home... common area was the perfect place to chill and kitchen was well equipped to cook. Big shout out to Dee the in house tattooist who’s work is awesome. Tried to be friendly to the cutest puppy but yeah he bites... haha :)

    Enjoyed my stay here. No breakfast included it's 3.50. I would recommend finding some avocado and bread instead.

    The en-suite was a great deal, the upstairs cafe/lounge/checking area would have been improved if people weren’t smoking cigarettes up there. By the evening it was too smoky to be up there if you are a non-smoker. The hostel is about a block from the Basílica, and a ten-15 min walk to most of the other sights in old town. We booked our trip to the Amazon through Guacamayo with Minka and we had a great time.

    We are actually dog lovers, but as other reviews stated, they have a little dog which looks cute but bites.

    Disappointing! I arrived at 2am and wanted to sleep as soon as I checked in. That was impossible because I had to listen to people playing pool above me until 5am. Then at 7:45am I was woken up by the staff coming in with their children! The booking itself says “no children allowed” but there were kids there every day. Overall very loud and staff didn’t seem very friendly. Location was good and the airport pick-up and drop-off were convenient, but otherwise would not recommend.
