My daughter is completing her 3rd year of university in ECUADOR. Our family came down to spend Christmas break with her. We stayed our first 2 tonights at Dawn's Lodge in Central Historical Quito. Walking during the day in that area is safe. Taking a taxi after dark is the better option. Make sure you ask driver to put on... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to the Galapagos and were very happy that we choose this lodge! Dawn's lodge / Jumbo Lodging is run by Luis - who was an amazing host! He arranged a safe and reliable taxi to meet us at the airport and he was waiting for us at the door when we... More

I wanted to go to Quito and as I was looking online, I found Jumbo Lodging, also known as Dawn's Lodge. This hostel has exceeded every one of my expectations. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted by the owner, Luis, who speaks perfect English, which was important to me. He immediately brought my luggage up to my room... More

I can not recommend this hostel enough! Luis gave us the warmest of welcomes on arrival despite it being past midnight and from that moment on we were part of the family. The endless and amazing breakfast really set us up for our busy days and whilst Luis speaks perfect English he was also ridiculously patient whilst helping me to... More

We stayed at Jumbo (Dawns Lodge) our first night upon arriving into Quito. Airport pickup was easily arranged via email and our driver was waiting for us at the airport. Luis greeted us warmly when we arrived. Our room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The quant building is really charming, well maintained, tastefully decorated, and clean. Luis' english is... More

I enjoyed this home but I think there are better deals in the neighborhood since (1) the internet is very slow here, (2) the prices are more than 2x higher than high quality hostels like hostel revolution and community in the same area, and (3) the hot water does not work. That said, the family is very kind but it... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in total, 2 either side of a trip into the Amazon. First and foremost is how welcome we were made to feel the moment we stepped through the door. The owner made extra effort to speak slow Spanish for us but spoke perfect English if we got stuck. They booked taxis... More

This lodging is also called Dawn's Lodge and is well located in old Quito. I attended the ESTC15 conference in Quito that was hosted in the Crystal Palace in the Itchimbia Park, and the lodging is directly below it (400 steps up) and quite a climb. The host speaks excellent English - not often found in the old town. He... More

My daughter was living in Quito at the time as an exchange student. I came into town and she had researched this hotel. She wanted us to stay in the best location and she was spot on! Not only that but Luis was wonderful, and the breakfast was so delicious, we skipped lunch everyday. The room was comfortable and clean.... More

This hostel is also called Dawn's Lodge. We spent a total of three nights at this hostel, two nights during our visit to Quito and then our final night in Ecuador. The hostel is located only a short walk from the main square in Old Town, but is in a quieter area than the noisy center. It is spotlessly clean... More
