After two days of buses we rocked up at this place without a reservation, and although it was nearly booked out, Sandra had two beds left for the night and made us feel super welcome. She talked us through everything we needed to know about the Hostel, what to see and where to go in Quito (also where not to... More

When I arrived at Hostel Revolution after a long bus ride it was like walking into a cozy apartment of friends. The staff was nice and took time to know my name and explain the city and it's attractions to me. There are hot showers, a huge kitchen with every gadget you could want in it, and in walking distance... More

The hostel is in a great location just between old and new town. Close to parks and a big bus station which makes it easy to get around the city. It was very clean and wifi works well in most rooms and ok even on the roof terrace. It's very clean and there is a great kitchen! I highly recommend... More

I really enjoyed my time at Hostel Revolution. Having also stayed at the Secret Garden hostel, I found Hostel Revolution more hospitable and comfortable (and cheaper!). The owner is especially helpful in planning activities around Quito and the kitchen is one of the best I've used in 5 months of travelling. If you're after a homy and friendly hostel, Revolution...

My friend and I used Hostel Revolution as a home base while traveling around Ecuador, after it was recommended to us by a friend we met while traveling. All the staff are amazing, so helpful with any question you have. The rooms are great, always clean, tidy and spacious. Great kitchen, tv room and common area. This is a smaller... More

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
