I have stayed here 3 or 4 times now and have found it to be consistently hospitable, clean, and with a super friendly traveler environment. Excellent wifi. The dorm beds are comfortable and warm, the breakfast simple but ample, and plenty of space to do your thing - cook, relax, be social, whatever your vibe. Don't shy away from the... More

Apart from the fact I arrived into Quito at 6:30am and was told there was no rooms, when my friends then came an hour later and booked in I had a bad first impression- (it was hard to find rooms during the independence weekend) however after having the staff let us hang out in all the common rooms with our...

I booked a bed in a six person dorm. The bed was comfy. Great pillow. The room has big lockers. The house has awesome social areas. Pool table, tv room. The house is located minutes from all the restaurants, bars and clubs. It's located IN THE CITY, so obviously it's noisy, but not unbearable! The number of bathrooms (3), didn't... More

This place is the ideal hostel to check out. They have multiple social areas, a good (included) breakfast, clean facilities all-around, fair prices, and towels included. The staff are also extremely helpful, going out of their way to make sure you are comfortable.

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and very good value. Rooms are small, but clean and well kept, as is the rest of Blue House. If you are expecting the Hilton, this is not for you, but if you need a a nice place with a friendly vibe, you can't beat this for $25 a night, including a basic breakfast. Wonderful place... More

The directions to find Blue House were kind of misleading. There are three metro lines in Quito, blue, green, and red. We came in on the blue line and had to ask around to figure out where it was located exactly. Also, when the front desk gave us directions to visit Old Quito (the historical area) we kind of got...

I stayed in the Blue House for almost 2 weeks and had an awesome time. It was a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world and was located in a very central area in Quito. My only issue was that we couldn't bring in our own drinks and were limited to only one type of beer... More

I had a lovely stay at the blue house hostel - the staff are super friendly, helpful and the common area is great! The people are social, friendly and it feels like home. After having a horrible stay on the other side of the road at vibes, coming to Blue house was just what I needed.

We stayed at the Blue House for about 5 nights and really enjoyed our time there. The staff were very friendly and helpful, in particular Andres. The hostel is in a really good location in the Mariscal with a tram line at the end of the road. There is a nice outside area and tv room. The hostel itself is... More

For the same price, there is a hostel across the road with much more atmosphere. The guy at reception of blue house is mega rude. You can't drink your own drinks in the hostel and they only sell Brahma. Rooms relatively clean but there are better hostels in the area. Nowhere to hang out inside hostel and the 'bar' is... More
