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

This older facility is ideally located in Centro Historico district, only 2 blocks from Grand Plaza, a block to public trolleys & busses. It's a perfect place for walking to all the interesting things here and very safe to do so even in the evening as there are loads of tourist police. As a solo woman traveler I am very... More

Alicia and the staff made us very comfortable and were helpful with all our requests - thank you. Breakfast was healthy and delicious. The room was perfect for our family and very... More

I think this hostel provides the necessary to have a pleasant staying in Quito. It's well located in Downtown and the people hosting you are very nice. I would say, it's a bit expensive and for mature people. However i really recommend it.

Great location, pleasant courtyard, fast internet, great service, but noisier than anywhere else I've ever stayed. Many rooms sit right above a narrow, busy road with squealing buses, honking motorbikes, and more all night long. We barely slept.

People running the hotel are super nice and accommodative. They also let me leave my bag in storage on the day I was flying out while I wandered around the city. The room was big and spacious but noisy as windows are not double glazed and the street noise is considerable. In the morning I was checking out I had... More

The location is great, the breakfast homemade, the feeling more like wonderland than Quito. Quito is a nice city in Ecuador with lots to see, and the staff will give u tips if you need them. She helped me as I was quite late with some issues one evening, in return I helped her with some computer problems

Just in the middle of the old town, 2 minutes from Plaza Grande you find this beautiful 2 storied colonial house with wonderful view over the churches and hills of Quito. Clean colourful rooms, hot water all the time, good breakfast, friendly helpful english speaking crew and lots of paintings in the rooms and around the patio in every store... More

The owner of the hostal, Alicia, was very sweet and accommodating. For example, on our first morning at the hotel we were up early after a rough bus from Colombia. Though the breakfast didn't open until 8AM she offered to serve us breakfast early. It wasn't until later that we learned that Alicia was the owner. We were staying in... More
