I stayed at Grinn House for just one night and moved the next day. When I stayed the place was inundated with a family, including 2 young children. In my dorm the mum shared a bed with her daughter and spent most of the night and the morning talking on her mobile, even after I asked her to stop in... More

Grinn House Hostal provides excellent customer service and assistance with arranging trips. My brother and I were planning a trip to the Galapagos and Cati negotiated a great price for the cruise and flights for us. She also assisted with other travel around the country including hostel recommendations, buses, locations to visit, activites not to miss, etc. Our trip was... More

Grinn House (pronounced Green House) was exactly what I was looking for. My buddy randomly found it the day before and I showed up the next day. Relaxed, safe (locking gate, lockers with keys for valuables), in a convenient area, and friendly ownership. The owner, Katy (Kathy) is around most days and very helpful recommending tours, restaurants, and activities. She... More

I have been staying at Grinn House every time I pass through Quito since they opened. I had to stay in another place for two nights bc the private rooms was full. This is by far the best place to stay in Quito. The location near the Plaza Fosh "Mariscal" is great if you want good restaurants and nightlife. It's... More

The Grinn House is one of the most comfortable places of whole Quito. It really feels more like home than like a hostal. The beds are wonderful, cosy and warm. The bathrooms with their beautiful paintings have an artsy atmosphere. But the best, the owner is the nicest lady you could possibly imagine. Come and spend a night here and... More

One of the cheapest and almost certainly the best hostel in Quito. Located in La Mariscal its location is safe and quiet but only a two minute walk to the hub of all the activity. The people who run the hostel are incredibly friendly and helpful. It feels like home with everything clean and well kept. The towels are big... More
