This was a great place to stay in the Mariscal district of Quito, where there's lots of nightlife and restaurants to enjoy. The hostel is large with comfy beds, and even though its close to nightlife - the rooms were pretty quiet at night. Free breakfast was a perk, although its nothing to get too excited about - just bread,... More

Blue House is a nice hostel in the touristic district (a bit away from old town). Rooms are clean, breakfast is good and wifi worked really well for Ecuador! We booked the hostel in advance with airport pick up. Our flight was delayed, so we contacted them and told them the new time. Unfortunately the pick up wasn't there and... More

Stayed here for a week and felt very welcome! They knew me by name from day one and were always very inviting and helpful whilst trying to organise my next stop. Would definitely recommend, also great breakfast!

This was our first Hostel in South America. Our flight arrived in Quito airport from Toronto at 2am and we arrived at the Hostel at 3am. Fantastic service and environment. Close to everything you need, great crowd, décor, and day tours. We met some of our favourite new friends here too that we keep in contact. It was just a... More

We booked a doubleroom online a few days before our trip. The double room turned out to be a very small and sticky room in the backyard with hardly any window, no light in the room and no space at all for our backpacks. The first day they forgot to offer us the towels that were included. The bathroom was... More

Blue House is a medium-sized hostel in La Mariscal neighborhood, is close to pubs and restaurants. I rally enjoyed my stay there, staff was very friendly and helpful, common areas were good and they even have a pool table which was my favourite part

I spent allot of time in Blue House and kept coming back! It has the friendliest environment I have come across during my travels, the staff were all lovely and the hostel seemed to attract a nice crowd of travellers. I never had problems meeting other people (I was travelling alone). I stayed in both the 6 and 8 person... More

Some of the rudest most useless staff (Leonor). I even went as far as contacting the manager via email asking him why would one of his employees (again, Leonor) would call me "estupida" ... He didnt even bother replying.... He must really care about his guests...

We apologize for any misbehavior of our staff and I will personally take action over this issue. Thank... More

I walked around to check out a number of hostels, and this was by far the best one. Great price, perfect location, and very comfortable. They have a free breakfast (just toast and yogurt, but hey, it's free!), good wifi, and the staff are so friendly and accommodating and actually hilarious once you get to know them. Tip: they have...
