The people who work there do their jobs well to help you enjoy your stay. Given the quality of the room, with a nice courtyard and view of the city, it was quite cheap. The only downside is that the hot water is not on all the time (e.g. at 7am when I wanted to take a shower).

We came to this hotel early in the morning hoping to just drop off our bags but the friendly staff let us check in early. The place was clean and on a pedestrian street. We were an easy walk to all the old town attractions. The street was noisy (stores or street vendors playing music) until about 9 pm but... More

Well maintained & renovated early 1920s hotel in heart of Old City with a wide range of rooms from small singles to large family rooms. Covered 3 floor interior courtyard provides spacious terraces and views of the city. Very clean, a nice modest breakfast & pleasant staff.

I came this place not sure what to expect. It is quirky, with quite possibly the best location in the old town and all the bangs you would expect from a really well run and impressive hostel. Look at Hostal Quito Cultural as the top of the range Hostal with really reasonable prices and you will be greatful you stayed... More

Located in the center of the old city, this hotel is close to all the historical attractions: La Ronda street, Plaza Grande, Presidential Palace, Basilica del Voto National, and more. Hotel hostess Alicia is extremely welcoming and accommodating. She even let us use the kitchen to cook our dinner late Sunday night when we could not find any restaurants open... More

I came to Quito for a medical emergency and Hostal Quito Cultural met my needs. I needed a place walking distance from the public hospital and the sights. Visiting hours were only between 3-5 and being in the city center was a plus. The staff were friendly and Alicea was very pleasant. I would recommend this place to anyone that... More

Alicia the owner was very kind and helpful to us. As we stayed in April, there were not many other visitors. The place has a beautiful open vista on the top floor. The breakfasts were great. We organized a tour to Otavalo as well that turned out great. WiFi was intermittent as it seemed to depend on the weather. Also... More

As others have said, lovely clean hostel with nice breakfasts and Alicia is very caring and helpful. Easy walking from here around the beautiful old town. Hot water could be intermittent during our stay which was a bit inconvenient.

Alicia and family were most gracious hosts, taking great care to create a beautiful, colorful atmosphere and covering every detail. Everyone was exceptionally warm and kind and helpful. Alicia took the time to talk to us about places of interest and how to get around in the Centro Histórico. The rooms were clean and quiet, and we were very comfortable.... More
