We would not recommend this hostel. First, the hostel confirmed they would arrange a pick up from the airport. They did not, so we had to find our own way (after waiting at the airport for half an hour). And the taxi we caught ended up being cheaper than what the hostel was charging ($26 versus $30). Note that the... More

Colonial house is a good hostel a few steps away from Old Town Quito. The hosts were helpful and friendly, even when we arrived at 2:00am, because our luggage was lost. The next day they helpt us getting back our luggage. We slept on the top floor and had a good kitchen, tv-room and a clean room.

Colonial house is a hostel near Old Town Quito which preserves much of its Latin architecture and flair. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful, even when we initially arrived at 1:30am. We did book online for a particular room with a private bathroom, which we only got once out of our four separate stays there, despite our asking for... More

This is a very characterful, relaxing, friendly hostel that really does suit all needs. It has quaint triple and double rooms which was a nice change from being in hostel dorms! It has a really nice open common area with games, upstairs there is a cosy sofa area and a clean, fully functioning kitchen. The staff are very nice and... More

We had a wonderful time whilst staying at Colonial House in Quito. We utilised the hostel's pick up service from the airport (as we flew in around midnight and had heard some dodgy reports about Quito - we didn't have any problems at all throughout our stay) and this made our journey friendly, reasonably priced and hassle free. We had... More

Colonial House is a nice Hostel in the Central Historico district. We took a private room for 3 nights and it was very nice and peaceful. It was a garden room on the 2nd floor and it was huge with a private bathroom. The staff are helpful and friendly, and you are only a 10 minute stroll from Plaza Grande.... More

This is a great hostel to stay at. It has a wonderful vibe, friendly staff, good location, and extremelygood value. The only thing that would make this place even better is free breakfast, but the price for beds is so cheap for the value, I'm ok with paying $3.50 for a good breakfast.

This hostel certainly made a good first impression but looking a little closer we got more and more frustrated. + The staff (mostly volunteers) are excellent; friendly, with good English, and happy to help however they can. + After a long journey, the beds were firm, warm, and very comfy with lots of blankets. + The location is pretty good,...

We stayed here on a night's stopover in Quito, so we weren't looking for anything fancy or expensive. The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful, all of them spoke fluent English and were happy to organise taxis to and from the airport for us as well as give us advice on what to see in the city given...

My husband and I stayed at Colonial House twice while visiting Quito. They provided reliable airport pick up, which is always nice with a late flight. Paco at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The location is super close to Old Town, and only a couple of blocks away from Bandidos Brewery. The beds were firm, and the... More
