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.

This review is a little late, but I stayed at Hostel Revolution back in October and again in November. First of all the location is perfect. It is within walking distance to the main attractions like the Mariscal and Old Town, but is also tucked away from main streets so it is not as noisy as many of the other... More

Hostel Revolution is conveniently located near the Old Town and only a short distance to Mariscal as well. The stay at this hostel added to our experience in Quito. Rooms and other facilities are super clean; and as a guest I appreciate Sandra being a "kitchen nazi" which keeps the shared kitchen a clean place to prepare your meals. Sandra... More

One of the few times that I have been impressed by a highly rated place. Beds extremely comfy. Dorms nice. Building has some character being in the colonial style. Location great, just on edge of historical area. Everywhere is clean and never any queues for bathrooms or shower. The water is actually hot. WIFI works well. It is not a... More
