I stayed here in the dorm for nearly 3 weeks and enjoyed it a lot. It is a clean and friendly place with good kitchen and fridges. There is a beautiful and relaxing big garden too and a free pool table to use . The staff is very helpful and can give good advise for onward travel or places to... More

Only stayed for a night before heading to the Galapagos. Can't comment too much, but it is certainly cheaper than both other hostels we stayed at in the same area earlier in out trip.......thought it unfair to name them here. Had a pool table, and fusbal, friendly staff & fairly central location

When I first read the various reviews for Colonial house I was a bit skeptical, but decided to jump in and see for myself. A wise choice! Over the years, and many countries, I have stayed at about 30+ hostels and guesthouses and this is the first one that truly has a "personality". The volunteers at reception were super helpful,...

Staffed by very friendly volunteers from all over who served a lovely breakfast & conducted walking tours of the area. Rooms are simply but clean with functional kitchen and nice eating & lounging area ad well as a lovely garden &... More

We are a party of four traveling from the US to Ecuador. We stayed at the Colonial both at the begining of our trip and at the end. We had arranged for them to pick us up at the airport in the early morning hours of our plane arrival and they were there as promised. The accommodations are simple but... More

I visited here far from South Korea, Even though I did not have much knowledge about Quito, staffs helped us and explained friendly. There were many places to visit by foot. Location&staff was really nice. It was unforgetable experience! Thank you!

Loved our stay at Colonial House! 3 nights wasn't enough and could have easily stayed longer. Very relaxed and chilled out vibe with great common areas and outside area (complete with hammocks and ducks). The staff were super friendly and really helpful with tips/advice and anything else you might need. Breakfast was tasty and the old school coffee grinder a... More

Totally worth the price. Colonial house is at the budget end of the accommodation spectrum but totally worth every cent. This is largely due to their amazing staff who were there to lend us their own personal adapters, compose emails in Spanish and answer all of our questions about how to get around the city. Thanks so much Dave and... More

Very friendly staff that are more than helpful if you have any questions. And the rooms are clean and tidy. Also the hostel is on a very quiet street so we slept very good :) overall a very good hostel thats also very cheap.

Nice hostal close to the old town. The (not included) breakfast was superb, people very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice but a little noisy because it was at the front side of the hostel and the street is noisy sometimes. Good value for your money!
