The location was the biggest plus of this hostel: almost in the center, yet quiet enough not to be disturbed by the big fiestas going on. However, I wasn't happy at all when one morning at breakfast. The previous days, I had been hiking up and down several of the 4000m+ mountains around Quito, and by the third evening, I... More

Very nice hostal. The staff was helpful and friendly. Good value, clean, but the beds could use replacing.

Great location on a quite street right in the middle of all the mariscal action. The bed in the room I stayed in was the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in (room 18 I think). Check the bed carefully before committing to a room.

This hotel was in a quiet (sleepy) location but not really very close to the activities we wanted in new town. Neighborhood was a bit shabby and the room was basic with bathroom finishes I'd expect in a cheaper hotel. Staff was very friendly and service was good. Quiet is a relative thing in Quito as the morning incessant car... More

Good value hostal with decent-sized rooms, comfortable beds, hot and reliable showers. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Simple adequate breakfast rather than plentiful. Numerous cafes, restaurants and bars in near vicinity. Although the area can be lively on Friday / Saturday nights, noise was not an issue. Good location for access to the Old Town and walking distance from... More

The hostal is impecably clean. The staff very friendly and helpful. Based on reviews here I asked for back room. May not have been necessary. The block is relatively quiet. There is a cofee shop across but no blaring music. A block away IS very loud.

The "garden of the sun" hotel offers inexpensive and basic accommodations and is located close to many of New Town's bars and restaurants. The staff was helpful for the most part. Units are small but clean and simply furnished with wood beds and tiny bathrooms with tiled floors. The bathrooms need some work as they are dark and missing items... More

Nice hostel in the heart of the Mariscal district - lots of internet cafes and bars etc in the immediate area. Very helpful staff and clean rooms. The really bad music from the 24 hr cafe across the street is annoying, but if you ask for a room at the back it should be okay.

Nice hostal for the price. My room overlooked the street and had a medium size balcony. The cafe across the street was a plus except late at night. It was open all night and it was too loud. Comfortable bed and adequate bathroom. Staff was extremely helpful.
