This hostel was in a great location with great staff. My only suggestion is to make sure you get a room on the second floor. The room on the first floor is very, very loud and smoke blows in from people smoking in the common outside area right into that room. The woman that cleans the rooms is absolutely fantastic...

Great location, nice rooms, and very nice and helpful staff! Blue House Quito is right next to the bus stop and very close to plenty of restaurants (though they do have a kitchen), as well as a laundromat. Taxi pickups can easily be arranged through the hostel. There is also a gate, which made me feel very safe. Over all,... More

The staff at Blue House were very friendly and the hostel felt very safe. The dorm rooms were a little bit crowded and the breakfast was basic (great coffee!) but overall a good value and a convenient location.

The rooms were quaint and although they smelt a bit musky they were clean and the beds were comfortable. The common area was really nice, kitchen a decent size and the showers were piping hot (free towels a bonus). Location was perfect. Close to a bus stop and lots of bars (directly across from the Irish bar) and restaurants. WiFi... More

This hostel was great! The staff were really friendly and helpful. They knew us by name and were good about giving us directions to places. The common spaces were cool- pool table, living room area, a small kitchen, and an outdoor chill space. The rooms were a little cramped and the beds slightly rickety, however they were very clean. Only... More

Arrived at 11pm after an 18 hour journey from Colombia to be told that they did not have our reservation that we had made with booking.com. We had reserved a double private room but had to take a dorm and my gf got bitten by bed bugs that night. The next day we moved into a private. Apart from this... More

My friend and I stayed at this hostel on a Saturday night in order to check out La Mariscal area after staying the previous weekend in the historical center. The location of this property is very good for that purpose as it's only a block away from all the action. That also means that you can hear the action from... More

Room was clean but very small and the window couldn't be opened. The bed was a bit uncomfortable. Bathroom was clean and the warmwater worked. Breakfast was included. Moreover they offer a pool table and you can sit outside hence there is a small garden. The staff was friendly. All in all ok!

Really nice hostel. Can be very noisy on a weekend night as the noise from the nearby clubs travels to the hostel until about 2am. Very friendly staff who speak great english and cheap beers on reception (no beers sold on a Sunday though!). Good location, weekend noise aside. Breakfast included and a nice sun trap outside the front door.... More

I overall enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The social spaces are really nice (one near reception with a pool table, one where breakfast is served and alot of seating outside), and an equipped kitchen. The dorms are clean and have lockers. The breakfast Is included which is good for saving money of course, but it is quite basic. I... More
