The hostal is in a secure neighborhood, with good wifi, not noisy, chillout area and free drinking water. The owner Elena is the kindest woman on earth. She helps out patiently with all you can possibly need, and always has time for a chat. She doesnt speak english but her spanish is slow and vey understandable for a new beginner... More

I have stayed here for the past six nights and really enjoyed it. Room is large and comfortable, on the top floor. Bathroom small but adequate. Water runs lukewarm rather than hot but is fine. Noise travels in the building as does the inssent noise of car alarms on the surrounding street. Breakfast was fine but was the same every... More

This hostel was one of the nicest that my wife and I stayed at in Ecuador. The bed was very comfortable, Elena (the owner) is about as sweet and helpful as people get, good breakfast, very clean, relatively quiet neighborhood with lots of eating options, and the bathroom had both hot water and good water pressure! I would not think... More

After turning up at the hostel a day late thanks to plane cancellations, bagless, thanks to inept airlines, and realising I'd left my phone in the taxi on the way from the airport to Aleida's I was ready to cry when I arrived. Instead I was greeted by a woman who I'd never met before who gave me a hug... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Elena, the owner, is warm and caring. The location is good - close to restaurants and La Mariscol. Old town is easily reachable by bus, trolley, or taxi. I ended up staying for over 3 weeks.

Aleida's hostel - like staying with family Elena has to be one of the most genuine and friendly hosts I have come across. The hostel is located about a 5minute walk from Baca Oritz metro station which costs 25cents and takes 10/15minutes to get into the city centre and old town. The area where the hostel is located has lots... More

I stayed here as a solo female traveler for 2 weeks. Overall I had a good experience. The owner was wonderful and made sure I was safe and satisfied during my stay. The breakfast was good, albeit a little repetitive. It was still nice to have the option for free. And the location was great - on a quiet street... More

Aleida's hostal has been a perfect stay for us: great location, very close to La Mariscal in a safe area, wlth a big choice of restaurants in the nearby. The old town also can be easily reached by public transport or on foot (a pleasant 40 minute walk). The hostal is very clean, with comfortable rooms and hot water and... More

Tonight is our last of 7 nights. The place is immaculate, room 15 had beautiful views, and the service has been simply fantastic. Breakfasts are sumptuous, and the staff cannot do enough to help us out. Super place, super value!

We stayed for one night at Aleida's Hostal. The rooms are simple, but clean. The bathroom had some problems with water leaking from the sink onto the floor. Unfortunately there was a group of teenagers staying the same night as us, and they were partying and drinking until about 1 AM, in the rooms as well as in the hallways.... More
