Great location right in Plaza Foch. We could walk to all the bars/clubs at night without feeling unsafe and walk to El Elijido (the park with the art fair) during the day. This is probably what is most important. Our room had no frills but had everything we needed. 2 comfortable beds and a shower with great pressure. Staff was...

We stayed in a room in the back of the building on a Saturday night. And that’s immediately the most negative point : there is a kind of dancing behind the hotel with loud music, and it feels/sounds like the dancing is IN your room. Music stops, however, at midnight, so if you are arriving late (like we did) or...

Nice spot to stay super close to Plaza Foche. The owners despite not speaking English were very friendly, helpful and kind. They tried really hard to communicate and assist where necessary. The internet here is top notch - super fast and available everywhere! Location is perfect, two blocks from Plaza Foch, restaurants, shops, ATMs, information centre etc. The rooms are...

Although this hostel has few amenities it has many other things. Good location convenient to everything, adequate breakfast, very friendly staff, clean, great WiFi, private bath and plenty of hot water. Currently only $30 per night. Can't find a much better value.

Arupo is in a part of Quito where it has lots of competition, so no question the price is right. That having been said, be sure what you are willing to compromise. This is probably a good hotel for backpackers and budget travelers. Not so great for a couple in their 70s who want basic amenities and some peace and...

I stayed here when I first arrived in Quito near the end of January and then intermittently during my travels within Ecuador (having to transfer through Quito to other destinations). "Feels like home" could not be a more accurate statement about Hostal El Arupo. I already miss the it! My first room was immaculate, spacious yet cozy; however, it was...

We stayed here for Xmas for two nights, then went back for another two nights after visiting the Amazon. The couple very kindly kept our suitcases. The rooms were very clean and tidy. We stayed in two rooms at the back, so it was quite. Breakfast was basic, but good. The hostel was also in a very good location for...

This was a nice hostel in a good location for walking around Quito. The room was comparatively large as was the bathroom. We were able to use the facilities in the kitchen, (fridge to store stuff, microwave, etc.) Very homey and the staff very friendly. We had been staying at the one across the street, but they couldn't extend our...

“Book ahead and ask for a room in the front of the building (certainly, not a room at the back if you like to sleep before midnight).”
