We’ve been to a few hostels in Quito, this one is by far the best. Location: this is a very conveniently hostel, so close to the markets, means a cheap and delicious lunch is just around the corner. There's a bakery right below it, and you’re only minutes walk from the vibrant historical center. We definitely preferred the old city...

The staff were all amazing. This hostel hires real chefs to cook, and the food is always awesome. (for real, you'll think they stole it from a 4 star hotel restaurant) Lots of comfy couches, hot water and friendly people. This is the only place to stay in Quito.

Amazing $3 breakfasts. Amazing $5 dinners. Rooms are really spacious and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The dorm room beds are like queen sized. They brew their own...

Excellent hostel. Must stay when you visit Quito. Beds are good, location is great (in historic centre), food is amazing, but the best is probably that the staff and the owner make sure you feel at home!

Very cosy hostel with a family feel to it. The staff are friendly and there are many social activities you can take part in to meet new people. Food here is worth the price too, $3 for breakfast and $5 for dinner, but if you want there are facilities where you can cook your own food. They have an small...

I stayed at this hostel for just under a week and loved it! The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, and inclusive. It really feels like you're staying with a bunch of friends in a very large house. They have filtered water, free coffee/tea, and CHEAP but good beer ($2-3). They have a small selection of draft beer on tap and...
