My husband and I stayed at Colonial House twice while visiting Quito. They provided reliable airport pick up, which is always nice with a late flight. Paco at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The location is super close to Old Town, and only a couple of blocks away from Bandidos Brewery. The beds were firm, and the...

If you want a good shower do not stay here. We know electric showers are common in S. America but these were some of the worst we have had in 4 months travelling. And Quito is a cold place so not great. My girlfriend really feels the cold and in places like this it would make so much sense to...

Huge place with a great character and garden. A good option for anyone wishing to explore Old Town Quito (the largest preserved colonial city in the world). I visited this hostel with my girlfriend and we stayed two weeks in total, using it as a base to explore the attractions around Quito. Rooms are affordable and clean, well suited for...

defenitly one off the worst hostel we stayed at: unwelcoming, mostly unfriendly and higly unqualified staf, not providing you with any practical information about the city, they can't even provide you with a proper map nor explain exactly where to get one, they dont' seem to care to help you as a fellow traveller! Their breakfast is overpriced as well...

We stayed 3 nights at the Colonial House and it was great. We stayed in room number 1, which was the top floor. If you're traveling in a couple, I would definitely recommend getting this room. It's the only room with a small balcony with a great view. The kitchen was right next to our room and was open for...

Hostal has several room options on three floors in large, bright colonial house in San Blas area of Quito. Found volunteers who staffed the hostal to be generally helpful, some more knowledgeable than others. Beds were comfortable and most private rooms had more than one bed. My favorite was #9, although it was on the top floor. Better value for...

I stayed in Colonial House for a month and had the best time of my life. I'm a fan of everything "colonial" so I found the place really suitable for my stay. They have English speaking staff, clean bathrooms and the owners are amazing! During the first period of my stay, wifi wasn't working well but after 2 weeks, they've...

We stayed at the Colonial House for three days upon our arrival in Quito. The staff were super friendly, and there was a nice community atmosphere. They provided free filtered water & coffee and the breakfasts were only $3.50 and tasty. The Wireless and internet was also free, but painfully slow when it did work. Our room #9 was facing...

Travelling to Ecuador meant backpacking, adventure and hostel living. First time in one so no use comparing to a hotel although this one may be superior to some. I was surprised how clean it was seeing that in fact it is colonial (200 years old) and by proper experience knowing that older buildings are harder to keep clean, or at...
