When passing through Quito this is a great hostal.Friendly, clear and really nice rooms with good facilities. It is a great hostal for a more quite stay. Due to location not the ideal place when exploring Quito itself.

We really felt at home at Helbling staying for the last two nights in Quito (new town). The room with bathroom (Pepe, ground floor) was excellent (furniture, hot showers, cosy bed...), the facilities provided fulfilled all our needs (washing machines for 3,50$ incl. detergent, dryers - although we opted for saving energy and used the lines on the rooftop terrace;...

I stayed one night at Casa Helbling at the end of my trip before heading home. I found it to be a solid choice with all of the amenities expected at a good backpackers style place. I splurged on a single room for my last night in Ecuador and it was excellent. Comfy bed and good shower. Helbling has a...

The place is nice, the bed is comfortable, and the Internet works. However, the place is quite noisy. We were waked up very early by somebody cleaning the terrace next to our room, and this was followed by the noise of the construction site just behind the hotel. We were surprised they didn't warn us about the construction site. So,...

A perfect base while travelling in Ecuador - you can leave some of your stuff/luggage there while exploring the country. Very friendly and helpful staff, great hospitality and reasonable pricing. If you need assistance in planning tours or trips or if you have any questions, just ask Hubert! He’s doing his best to make your trips/tours an unforgettable experience.

My wife and I stayed here for several nights and it was a perfect choice. We stayed in three different rooms (because we would leave to travel and then return) and they were all simple but clean and lovely. Breakfast was nice, the coffee amazing. The staffers were always available to answer our questions about the area and accommodate our...

Stayed here for 3 nights in January. Staff is friendly and very helping in arranging taxis and transports. Clean rooms and lots of amenities. Convenient location in the Mariscal district and convenience store across the street.

Casa Helbling was our home base during 5 weeks of travels in Ecuador. The staff was incredibly friendly and accomodating; rooms and common areas were clean, spacious and comfortable; location was perfect for walking everywhere; and breakfasts were generous and delicious. We felt among friends every time we passed through the door.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our 9 day stay at Casa Helbling. Hubert and his staff were warm, friendly and Hubert has a good sense of humor to boot.. The hotel is close enough to the Mariscal to be within easy walking distance, but far enough to avoid the noise. My group rented three rooms all...
