A small, quiet hostel with great service and a fabulous location, straddled between old and new Quito: about a 10 minute walk to the old town and a $2-3 taxi ride to the new town. I particularly loved their kitchen, which was large with a gas stove and really well stocked. The rooftop patio was also a treat with a... More

Located near Centro Historico and Mariscal, this is the right place to enjoy Quito and to meet lovely people. The kitchen is well equipped, clean, and the rooms too. There is even a bar where you can enjoy the stories of other travelers.

My boyfriend and I booked a couple of nights but soon decided to stay longer after experiencing Sandra, the owners', hospitality and enjoying the home away from home she has created.. Enjoy a comfortable tv room, spacious kitchen, clean bathrooms and super comfy beds - all made it one of our favourites so far... location is great, in the middle... More

Can't say enough great thing about this place... The staff (Sandra and Skye) went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and that we had all of our questions answered. Sandra really knows how to run a successful business, with everything in the kitchen labeled, clean and organized so guests know where everything is. The cleanliness was outstanding... More

We stayed two nights i The Revolution. It's located fairly close to Centro Historico in a not too trafficy street. It's a hostel with three floors and it has both dorms and private rooms. We stayed in a three bed private room with shared bathroom and payed 27 USD per night. That's a competitive price around the area. The common... More

You made an inquiry without actually booking. Subsequently you just walked-in. Every guest who books with us gets an e-mail explaining our check in-hours are between 08:00 and 23:00.... More

All the comforts of home. The kitchen, the beds, the bathrooms and showers. A place that's quiet yet warm and fun, whether it's movie nights with new friends or just chilling with sandra, the owner. And the location is perfect, not far from anything, and not actually in the middle of the all the hustle and bustle. Don't even hesitate,... More

This is a fantastic hostel, with a fantastic owner, in a fantastic location!!! My boyfriend and I reserved five days during Santa Semana, and we're so glad we did! The owner is a fellow Canadian and was super nice, and very helpful with information on how to get around. The hostel itself is situated pretty much right in between Old... More

The hostel was the best I could find in Quito. I immediately felt comfortable. It was clean, especially the kitchen, the beds were big, the blankets warm, but the best was the service. I was in total 4 times between the different trips in Quito and left my big bag there for no extra charge. One time Sandra took care... More
