Stayed just one night, everyone was helpful and got an upgrade to a private bath because we had a reservation and no shared baths were available. Across the street from a wonderful park and close to the ecovia line. It's a hike up the hill but the neighborhood is quite and appears safe.

We stayed at this place for almost a week in a big group. The first thing that stands out as you check out this place is this breath taking view from the balcony. Have never stayed at a place with a such a great view. The staff is really helpful. The hostel is conveniently located between La Foch and Old... More

I "lived" here for 6 months when I worked in Quito back in 2006 (but couldnt select a date on my review form earlier than Dec 2013). I loved that it was out of the city centre and therefore safer. Great views of the city, earnt by the very steep walk to get there! Great rooms some with fabulous views.... More

Great place, tidy and with a great atmosphere. Wonderful view on the rooftop over quito. Internet and good facilities. Recommended! Close to the center, friendly staff. Dont know about security, there are lockers by the reception and you should use them since the handle on my door is almost falling off!!

We had a room with private bath. The room was huge, with bedside tables, desk and chair, and mini fridge. The location was okay, in retrospect it would have been more convenient to be located in Mariscal but the view from the terrace was lovely. We had breakfast there (not included in rate) and portions were huge. The reason we... More

First stop on SA trip, and a great one of them. Good atmosphere and easy mingling with other travellers. The rooftop porch is amazing with a fantastic view over the city. For backpackers/travellers this is an awesome place to stay. If i return to Quito I'll definitely be going back.

Probably the best place I've ever seen in all my trips since ten years... I just couldn't leave that house. I felt like at home. Breakfast kitchen room bed staff were just perfect. Thank you I'm already missing your place and a special thank to la señora who prepares breakfast! See you soon!

Of the various places we stayed during our two week trip to Ecuador, Casa Bambu was by far my favorite. Clean, bright rooms and very clean bathroom with an excellent high-pressure hot shower. Huge kitchen facilities and rooftop with incredible city views. Large computer room with fast internet, a movie room, a small library, and plenty of nooks for lounging.... More
