    Its a great hostel. The terasse has a beautiful view. We were very happy that we could use the kitchen. The staff is friendly and present all the time. The rooms are nice and clean. They arranged us a taxi for a good price to the airport. The price for the rooms is super good. We like very much the art on the walls and the beautiful flowers. We definetely recommend the secret garden hostel.

    Such a special place....you enter into this wonderful maze of stairs and artwork, sounds of running water. The staff greats you warmly. Such a relief after long trip trying to get home during Covid 19 outbreak. The patio is amazing, has an unbelievable view of the whole mountainside. I would highly recommend this oasis

    Such a lovely hostel! I started my trip to Ecuador here and was looking forward to returning. Staff is super helpful and friendly and there is a tour agency right below that can help you book anything you want. There’s an amazing rooftop which makes it super easy to meet other travelers. I would definitely recommend Secret Garden Quito!

    Great location in the old town! The hostel has some of the best views, good showers and is within walking distance to all the sights within old town. It doesn’t have a kitchen but has good & reasonably priced breakfasts and dinners! Not all dorm rooms are created equal though, my first (9 bed) had shelves with lighting and charging sockets but my second (8 bed) had a charging cable not so close to the bed, big gap between the bed and wall and was super creaky. Overall would stay again!
