The stuff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are deep cleaned everyday by a nice lady. The whole hostel is very clean. A special plus is the location just a block away from all the bars and restaurants. It can get loud though during the night. So if you re a light sleeper take note of that! Also the... More

The best part about Bluehouse is undeniably the location, perfectly situated around all other hostels and bars and the main plaza. Rooms get cleaned daily by a very friendly lady who makes the beds perfectly! Well priced at $10 for a dorm bed and a good pool table. However, kitchen is average with a mess of utensils and such in... More

This is a lovely place where you will always feel welcome. The people who work here are amazing, especially Leonor and Andrés. They are so kind and helpful, and their friendly attitudes definitely affect the atmosphere of the entire hostel. I met many amazing people from all over the world here.

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
