This was the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Always clean, plenty of hot water, comfortable beds, great wifi. The owner is awesome, super helpful and friendly, knows a lot about things to do (and not to do). Great location, right near Parque La Alameda, a nice place to hang out and relax before checking out the Old Town. Highly... More

From the outset, being greeted by name when the door was answered, this place was friendly and social. Which is not always the case when you are 40 somethings. We stayed 2 nights in a private room, and loved the well equipped kitchen, social happy hour and cleanliness. One of the best places, we stayed in South America. Recommended.

I stayed here for 3 nights - one in a shared dorm and two in a private room. This is the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in and the owner, Sandra, is extremely helpful and knowledeable. The showers have hot water, the wifi works well, the kitchen is large and well-stocked, the beds are comfy and nights are quiet... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a private room, was amazed at how clean everything was all the time. The large kitchen has everything you need for cooking. Chill out room, massive TV in the dining room. Wifi is quick and works everywhere. Comfortable beds, great location - quiet but only 10 minute walk from the centre of town. The staff... More

The hostel itself is grand - rooms are clean, wifi is decent and good kitchen even if it is covered with signs threatening to charge you if you fail to wash and dry up properly (which undoubtedly keeps things clean). If you are a fan of such rules stay here, if you're not then don't. Staff could be friendlier. I... More

Stayed here for a few nights over New Years and found it to be a really cool little hostel! Big clean kitchen, friendly staff who are more than helpful with directions etc and comfy beds! (Always nice as a backpacker) Defiantly enjoyed our stay!

My girlfriend and I staid in Hostel Revolution in the beginning of our trip through Equador, and returned at the end of the trip. It's well located between the old center and the new center. We staid in a double room. There are only shared bathrooms, but they are by far the cleanest I've seen in Equador (and elsewhere for... More

Hostel was great for relaxing after afew days of partying/traveling. Bed was comfortable, wifi was excellent and owner and helpers were friendly and informative. Only downside although probably can't be helped was that I was allergic to something in the room which made getting to sleep difficult. Overall, 5/5 would stay again

We had a super lovely stay here in Quito and Sandra, the owner, is more then approachable and helpful when you need to know anything about the city. They have a really helpful notice board that has information about absolutely everything you want to do in Quito with super explicit instructions on the best ways to do then be it... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Hostel Revolution, so much so that I ended up back there twice more before my trip was over. Location wise it's hard to beat - equidistant between the old and new town and steps from supermarkets, laundry's and a 5 min walk from the lovely Cafe San Blas. The hostel itself is great, very...
