Two adults and 6 teenagers were welcomed in this cute and reasonably priced hostel with a great breakfast. Well located in Quito, safe and clean, it's a great choice for any traveling group or family. Very friendly staff and owners even helped with our laundry after a Jungle tour.

I had to insist...
