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

The room was ok, the bed wasn't confortable at all and it was pretty noisy at night. The bathroom had a weird smell that it even got into my clothes. 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

I don't think you can find anything better in Quito for this price. The rooms were allright, the bathrooms are big but could be cleaned more often when there are a lot of people. It's nicely located between the old and the new centre, the owner is a nice guy and very helpful, the rest of the staff a bit... More

I realise you can´t expect much for a place that is so cheap however it could be much better than what it is. I wouldn´t stay there again. Pros - Cheap - Good location, can walk to old town & new town - It would have a good kitchen if it wasn´t always dirty, unwashed dishes everywhere, dog food on... More
