I got a good value private room here which also had a bathroom for $15. The room itself was on the very top floor facing the courtyard. The courtyard outside could be very loud and I imagine some people would struggle to sleep with the noise. I didn't like how when I was trying to check out the lady in... More

Rooms are spotless and the bonus of a towel and free soap provided is always good. Staff friendly and plenty hot water. Wifi signal ok but no signal in my room. Nice roof terrace. I arrived late at night, 2am, and door was locked - thankfully no need to panic as the friendly staff opened the door after one ring... More

2 nights here. Didn't sleep a wink. The owners dogs plus all the local owned and steady dogs bark outside all night!!!! All night!!! Then there's the common room upstairs which had the best wifi spot, so if you're room is near it you hear people skyping and playing music all night. The kitchen is private so no way to... More

This hostel was comfortable for our stay in Quito. It is a bit of a walk from the Mariscal Sucre, the main tourist area, however close to the old town. A taxi to the Mariscal Sucre is not very expensive though so after dark this is a must as Quito is not very safe. The room was clean and comfortable,... More

You could pratictly hear everything in the other room. I stayed for a couple of days because i was never in my room so it wasn't a big deal for... More

The staff of the hotel doesn´t talk to you and ignoring you as much as possible. Even saying ´hi´ is too much for them. There is a coffee lounch which is mostly closed. Most of the staff doesn´t speak english. It made a horrible athmospheer. The bed was as hard as a stone, i never felt something like that before.... More

Most of the reviews on tripadvisor appear to be positive. With that and the $20 a night rate, why not? After the first night of our reservation, we left. The room and bathroom both had an odd smell. We couldn't really figure it out. The bed had two definite divots and the pillows felt like deteriorating styrofoam. There were exposed... More

This hostel is awful. The room is dirty. The sheets smell old. The mattress should be thrown out. The bathroom is dirty as well. There is mildew in the shower. They don't allow you to put toliet paper in the toilet. Other hostels we stayed at in rural towns did. Their "hot water on demand" is a joke. Only ice... More

The owners of this hostel were super friendly and helpful. They provide airport transport for a competitive price even from the new airport. They offer a range of options for breakfast. The rooms are clean and comfortable as are the common areas. Very great for the price!

Ok in general you probabely won't find anythin better for this price. Rooms are basic in our bed where some long black hairs which I asume they didn't clean the sheets. The only thing I had a big problem with was the manager his lack of fix room prices. If you will book it on hostelworld you will pay $14... More
