We do not have 24 hour reception because of our smaller size. The earliest check-in is 8.00 am and the latest is 23:00. There is NO CURFEW. Everyone is given the front door key. If your flight arrives after 22.00 you cannot make it to our hostel before we close so please do not book your first night’s stay in Quito with us. There are many other hostels which offer a 24 hour reception.
* There is some noise from passing traffic as Los Rios is a major street.
* We are officially within the historical centre of Quito which is quieter at night. If you
want to stay where the clubs and higher priced restaurants are consider staying in La
Mariscal (but it is only 10 minutes bus/cab ride away if you want to visit.)
* A Valid passport is required by all guests.
* Consider lengthening your stay in Quito by becoming a Volunteer.
