We arrived at 9:30am after a night bus from Peru not expecting our rooms to be ready in any way. We were told at check in we would only have to wait half an hour so we should go have the free breaky and come back at 10am. That's exactly what we did. The free breakfast is good, toast, jam,... More

Myself and two friends booked a night at this place in advance, advising we would be arriving at 0600. We arrived on a bus from Guayaquil slightly early and were sleep deprived, after ringing the bell a number of times we were finally let in. The guy who we were served by was very rude and even after we told... More

well kept, well run, well located hostal. staff is friendly, there is a pool table and a common-room for dining. think there's a kitchen too, but didn't use it. Its well located - close to Foch with the restaurants, cafés and night-life. (But just at the right end of the street to not be too close). Also close to the... More

After staying in the hostel "Vibes" for one night (and not being content - it's pretty expensive and not really nice) me and my friend moved to the Blue House. We really liked it, the staff is very nice, they have a great pool table, a TV room and the (included) breakfast was decent - RECOMMENDATION!

Hey travellers, The blue house hostel in Quito is great address for staying, even if it is just for a short time. The rooms are nice, but you are not staying the whole day in your room anyway, right? For 9 dollars in the Blue House you have breakfast included as well as towels and a very nice staff! The... More

WOW! Absolutely fantastic. The Blue House was full when I arrived, so I had to stay next door for a few days before I could get in. That's really too bad - however, I was fortunate enough to get an awesome room here yesterday. The Blue House is well kept, modern, has very reliable Wi-Fi, tons of hot water in... More

we stayed here our last night in ecuador before an early flight home the next morning. it's right in the middle of Mariscal Sucre which is nice. the rooms were nice, ours was a bit odd though - it's quite obvious there was some shoddy modifications made to add an extra bed. awkward things like the door to the bathroom...

I stayed at Blue house for about two weeks in all, always in the 8 bed dorm. The atmosphere is friendly and there are some good social areas. Large kitchens, pool room, lounge, TV room and outside seating areas. The staff will help in any way they can, booking taxis, arranging trips and they have an outstanding, cheap and speedy... More

We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. It was a cheap hostel but not more than that. When we arrived the bathroom was not cleaned at all. It was an used towel there. But a man cleaned it for us when we told him. But not very well. It is a very loudly place. The young guy in... More

Breakfast was included but vile. Very disappointed, we booked as a result of positive review in Lonely Planet, and this place did not live... More
