I had done a fair bit of research prior to booking into here but was not sure about the area. La Meriscal is LOUD; and the B&B can do nothing about it. The music seeps in but its not unbearable. The rooms, including the bathroom were clean, and included a TV, although all the channels were in spanish and ours...

Great and serviceminded hosts! Affordable and good location. Highly recommended! Also a safe place and good neighborhood. The breakfast tasted good. Thanks for the hospitality! Now we are heading to Cayambe and Chimborazzo for climbing after three days of aclimatizing in the mountains near Quito city.

We stayed here twice during our trip at beginning and end. The rooms were clean w/ nice decor. We especially enjoyed having drinks in the garden area out back and even had chance to stay in garden room. The breakfast was great. The staff were extremely nice and their English was better than our Spanish. We accidentally left something behind...

Great location, felt very safe, and it was incredibly good value for the price paid. Breakfast was also great, and the staff was super friendly! It was tough to fall asleep at times at night, because the neighborhood parties loudly until 4a, but that's going to be an issue at just about any hotel in the Mariscal area.

This charming hostel was a wonderful, trustworthy place in busy Quito. If you are a sound sleeper, this hostel is a bit discounted because of it's proximity to the party scene in La Mariscal. The lay out of the hostel is nice, wood floors, nice breakfast room, staff is responsive to any issues (within minutes). We left extra baggage without...

the staff were so kind, they allowed us to arrive and check in at 8.30am, have breakfast without extra money. There is a Supermaxi supermarket about 15minutes on the same road, walking distance from most touristic places, restaurants, night life. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Very nice place with a really great staff. Our room was very spacious, the beds were comfy, and we had a really great bathroom. The breakfast in the morning isn't amazing but it is included. Really great location close to Foch Plaza and lots of restaurants.
