    Amazing hostel. Stui (tour receptionist) helped me plan an amazing stay from quito with Amazon and Cotopaxi side trips. Rooftop views are beautiful! There's free Walking tours, a food tour, trip to equator, and party bus. Basically a one stop shop for all your adventure needs. Clean bathrooms and common areas. Atmosphere is great, everyone is helpful and super friendly.

    Awesome social hostel. Staff super nice and speak English. My only complaint would be that there’s no kitchen to make your own food. Party bus on saturdays unlimited alchohol for only $10. In great location and free walking tour definitely reccomend!

    The dirtiest and ugliest hostel I have ever been to. The pictures look nice, the reality does not. The place is wet and cold, needs decorating and needs a very deep clean! Thankfully we stayed only one night. Behind our room (A-2) is loud water fountain, at 3 am me and my boyfriend had to get up and find out how to switch it off as neither of us was able to fell asleep to this point. Drinks on the rooftop bar are overpriced and honestly taste disgusting. Alright food is the only positive here.
