SERVICE: This was where we first stayed in Ecuador. The staff was very fast to respond by email and answered all our questions before arrival. We got to the hotel after 1am on arrival but the staff still registered us for the tour to the Otavalo market the next morning leaving at 7! It was great! They organize daily tours...

I really enjoyed staying in this hostel. It was above my expectations. The owner and staff were amazing. I loved the diversity and organization. Most importantly the safety and cleanliness. Everything about it was great and the nice thing about it is that they make you feel like home. Thanks! Definitely recommend it.

I really liked this hostel and the $3 breakfast was awesome. The hostel is safe, clean and good value for money - 10$ for a dorm bed. The staff are very helpful. The location is perhaps not in the safest of areas but I experienced no issues whatsoever. The central market next door is very handy for a tasty lunch...

There are two distinct areas to stay in Quito, the Old Town (El Centro Historico) or the New Town (La Mariscal). We chose to stay in the quieter Old Town for its proximity to the things we wanted to see and because we’d read that New Town ‘looks like the 21st century vomited on concrete’ with its gaudy neon lights...
