  • Great hostel! The staff is mostly made up of very friendly volunteers, who are very helpful. The hostel makes you feel like a part of a great community, the setting is beautiful so are the views of Quito. Location is great to explore Quito old town. The only thing lacking is a great shower, but you can shower pretty well anyway. A 200 year old building has to have some quirks! Highly recommend staying there, especially if you are halting in Quito for a long time.

  • It looks good. Exactly what you expect from a hostel. The staff is very nice but they don't know much. The shower sucks. Unless you like cold showers, then it's fine :-)

  • 5mins walk (uphill) from metrobus. Wifi and one shower was broken for 2 of 3 nights.

  • It was a good stay for a couple nights. The rooms are a bit small and the shower was only a drizzle, especially if you wanted hot water. It was an old building so understandably it was not as clean as more modern places. It definitely had character, and the airport pickup was appreciated. Certain staff were a bit sulky...they should definitely hire a perky night person for late or early arrivals. Otherwise, very close to Old Town sights.
