The rooms here completely fine for a couple of nights. Wifi is good as is breakfast. Rooms in the garden can be noisy - lots of neighbouring dogs barking. The big shame is the poor showers - very low pressure. We have had way better showers in the middle of the countryside and this is a capital city!

Staff are friendly and helpful with good recommendations. There are lots of nice and comfy chill out areas, as well as a bar with pool table and table football for socialising. They have pet ducks and a giant rabbit in the garden which run around under the hammocks and chairs which I really enjoyed. The kitchens are well stocked which... More

Spent three nights at this friendly spot. Staff are great and the hostel is cosy. Rooms come with towels which is nice and plenty of blankets. Showers are nice and hot with the pressure lower and wifi is good during the day but a little patchy in the evening. They provide a large breakfast for $3.5o each morning that you... More

This is a great hostel. The decor is great and we loved all the incense and artwork. Breakfast was an extra cost and very tasty. The free coffee beans, grinder and coffee machine were amazing. The only downer was the shower and slow internet. But we still had an amazing time and met some very nice traveller's there.

Spent two nights here when I arrived in Quito. Place is adequate, room was small but bed comfortable. I found the room cold. Shared bathroom adequate. Breakfast was great. Staff, mostly volunteers were friendly and helpful.

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...
