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...

Blue house is always interested to read the comments of its guests. We are glad that you wrote us. As a general rule and respect for our guests, once a passenger has checked out he/she cannot have access to the bedrooms anymore. 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...

Fantastic hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and great location. If I am back in Quito again I wouldn't stay anywhere else! As a solo female traveller I always felt safe and looked after, the hostel are also happy to order safe taxis to the airport etc which I used several times. There are also multiple common room...

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...
