  • 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.

  • Absolutely fantastic stay! We loved the hostel, they cook breakfast and dinner for you for a small fee, and it is the most delicious meal We've eaten. Their wifi works most of the time. Try to get a room in the back house, since the front house is very noisy from the street. Location is fantastic! There are lots of volunteers, and everybody is very friendly and open, you will hear interesting stories from all over the world! The common areas are friendly, we made lots of friends!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at colonial house. The staff were extremely friendly and accomodating, and when we were there they had a party for the owners son, so we got to meet the whole family and all the volunteers. Its really laid back, and they even helped us get our luggage back from the airport when it got lost. I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the old town of quito!
