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

We enjoyed our stay at Jumbo Lodging. The location offered easy access to walks in old Quito and La Ronda. The best part of our stay, however, was Luis, the owner. This kind and gentle man set up tours for us, got taxis for us, gave us all sorts of information and truly wanted us to have a good time.... More

After a long flight and drive, it was good to see Luis smiling, waiting outside for us (and this was after 11pm). Very spacious room number 4 and large double bed with warm covers for the cool evening. Ensuite bathroom, and fresh tasty breakfast: our different tastes for food were no problem for him. It was nice to be out... More

As a mature couple backpacking we were delighted by the friendly welcome we received from Luis and his family. Accomodation is in an old colonial building. Breakfast a feast with fresh juice, fruit, coffee, yoghurt, muesli and eggs. We also had fresh coffee and chocolate from Luis' farm. Luis met us at the airport which was a God send given... More

For $90, given the location and the amenities, Jumbo was okay but certainly not great. If you are in need of a lot of help and some hand holding, Luis is definitely there for you, but as longer- term residents of EC we were not in need. I am reviewing the place and the amenities, not the owner. Jumbo is... More

My wife and I spent 4 days in Quito this past August and with the help of the owner Luis and his family it was a fulfilling one. Luis picked us up at the busy , new Quito airport and drove us about an hour back to the hotel. Luis was incredibly generous with his time and advice and offered... More

Staying at Jumbo Lodging with Luis and his family was a wonderful way to "ease" into our vacation in beautiful Ecuador. We were a little stressed upon arriving in Quito since there had been a major earthquake that day, but Luis waited patiently at the airport, despite the resulting delays, and greeted us with warmth and graciousness. The location of... More

From the moment you meet Luis and see his beautiful, old, well kept colonial home and hotel, you will feel instantly well cared for and safe. Luis and his family are kind, warm, hospitable, gracious, and extremely helpful. The accomodations are clean and very comfortable, the breakfasts delicious, full, and wonderful (including his own organic coffee, made on his family... More
