This hostel is in the Historical Centre of Quito but no more than twenty minutes walk from La Mariscal if you want to party. Sandra, the owner/manager was so helpful with any questions about getting around the city and what to see and do. Although there is no bar here there is a lovely communal area and cheap beer is...

The staff is very helpful and provide useful info before you even ask which is great! The kitchen is clean and is fully equiped which is more than most hostels. However, it is more expensive than other options. If you are two persons you can easily get a room close by for the same price as two dorm beds.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights at first and returned back for another two nights. (We did a jungle tour in between stays). We stayed five of those nights in dorms which were clean, spacious, with great bunk beds and lockers. There was also good wifi from the room on 2nd floor. We stayed in a private... More

I can not say enough good things about this place. First of all, the staff and owner are welcoming, helpful and down to earth. The hostel has been recently updated and it's a lovely old historic building - look up at the ceilings to be amazed. I stayed in one of the dorms and the room was spacious, comfortable (new... More

Prefectly located and very nice owner. We have a great time there they were friendly and accommodating. Wifi and a kitchen and a rooftop bar. Good part of town to stay and access the different attractions.

We stayed at this hostel in 2 situations - private and shared dorm. The place is really well located, safe and and have many facilities inside/ near by. Otherwise, de structure is simple and the common area a bit tight. Nothing special, but worth the money you pay.

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm for 10 nights on and off. Excellent value for money, spacious dorm rooms with lockers and plenty of showers which were all very clean. Beds made every day. Sandra is friendly and knowledgable, and we enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome. The best thing about Revolution was the kitchen... More

This was a fantastic place to stay. When you check in, you get a map that shows you all the local shops and restaurants. The dorm rooms are big but the owner doesn't see that as an opportunity to squeeze in as many beds as possible. Instead, you have enough personal space for you and your belongings. The beds also...

After travelling round Ecuador for a couple of months, and inevitably ending up in Quito on multiple occasions, the Hostel Revolution was my favourite of the hostels I stayed at. It's smaller than some of the hostels in Quito so as a solo traveller it's fairly easy to meet other people if you want to. While the hostel is quiet... More

The staff at Hostel Revolution are top notch - very friendly and helpful. The facilities are functional and clean. There is a bus stop only a short walk away, but it's far enough that traffic noise isn't really an issue. Couldn't really ask for more - we'd definitely stay there again.
