We had a great stay at this lovely hostel. We kicked off 4 months of backpacking through South America with a 6 night stay here and couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip. The owners and volunteers were friendly and helpful at all times. There was lots of social spaces (backyard, back porch, lounges on each floor)... More

I stayed at colonial house for one month. Having been in Ecuador for three months, I stayed in a lot of different hostals on the beach and in the mountains. The family at Colonial House is fantastic. I only wish my Spanish was better, but I will keep trying. Everyone is more than willing to help you with whatever your... More

Great place. I would go again with no hesitation. Quiet, clean, nice ambience, good price and good optional breakfast too. Only be aware most of reception staff are volunteers and advices might be worth to be double checked: we asked for a place to eat nearby and were sent to center town first night, when we had a couple of...

There is warm water but it is quite hard to understand how it Works... The beds are comfortable and the surroundings are... More

One of the best hostels I stayed at in South America. Only five minutes from the center of the historic city with a lot of common areas to get to know other people, theres a big garden and all you would expect from a good hostel. But the best is the coffee from freshly grinded beans you get for free.

Thank you Colonial house for the most helpful staff I could ever hope for! The hostel is located in a good area close to the bus lines, restraunts etc. Very clean, a good chilled out atmosphere and nice rooms. I would highly recommend!

I ended up staying at Colonial House for a month and cannot reccomend it enough. It is very well located...a few minutes walk from Quito's three major bus lines in the Historic Center. You can walk to La Mariscal in 15 minutes and get in and out of the city on public transit easily. I felt very safe coming and... More

The rooms are basic but nice. Water was hot but no water pressure. Staff were really helpful and we booked flights and day trips with the travel agency they recommended. I would recommend staying here.
