Right in the centre of Centro Historico, this is a well run hostel has a great atmosphere. Rooms are well looked after and very clean. There is a roof terrace that overlooks the town where you can get away from it all. Unbelievably friendly owner and staff.

I stayed here for one week. This is what I liked: It is in a good location in old town - short walk from most places. Good breakfast - fruit, tea and coffee, juice, eggs and bread. It's a big building with big rooms. The room was always clean. It was always quiet. The host, Matteo, was always helpful and...

I definitely loved the feel of this hotel, and the big central atrium and views from the roof. The rooms are big with lots of light. wifi worked well. I give it four instead of five because I think it's a bit overpriced for some of the amenities. For the price we paid per night they could improve the breakfast...

In old town, walking distance to the city center. Nicely decorated with local art (make sure you spend sometime to go through the lobby and the staiways). Great view of the city from its rooftop (this is also a great place to relax yourself if you can find some extra time in Quito). Staff is super nice. Only drawback was...

The guys who work here are all great and the interior of the hotel is great to hang out in. I was able to hang out and play Xbox while waiting for my 150am flight! Good coffee. Great view from the 3rd floor hammock! Right in the best part of old town!

Stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. The staff was so helpful and even brought us up coffee to the top floor when we missed breakfast.
