Pros: Cool outdoor areas, great games room, filtered water, friendly staff, good kitchen facilities Cons: Brekkie not included, bathrooms are pretty gross and smell, shower is lukewarm but with zero pressure, our bed would break just by moving on it in the middle of the night

This place is not a bed & breakfast you have to pay extra for the breakfast. Expect to have people camping out the back of the hostel and taking over the outdoor area. the hostel showers have no pressure at all the water drips out if you want it hot otherwise you can have a good pressure cold shower.

Having struck out with our first choice in Quito, we settled for Colonial House based on a good recommend from Hostel Revolufion. This turned out to be a great choice! The stay was wonderful! Staff were friendly and very helpful with contingents of both volunteer expat staff, (reduced rate stays in exchange for multilingual help) and guests that brought delightful... More

I hadn't too much luck when I was in Quito: I injured my knee and couldn't do any of the amazing hikes and climbs in Quito's stunning surroundings, so I had to hang out in the hostel a lot. That didn't feel like a punishment though, I loved this place. It is not the most beautiful hostel I have ever... More

When we traveled to Quito not a lot of budget options had been available. We choose Colonial house mostly because we wanted to stay in Quito's old center, rather then in New Town (where you will find lot's of hostels and lot's of party). Colonial House is a colorful, lovely and lively hostel. It offers dorms but also double and... More

Colonial House had a really nice vibe about it. It's just off, but really close to the old town, within a lovely little slice of cobbled and quaint streets. The building itself has a good element of weirdness to the way it's put together, and the room we stayed in was very cosy and had a homely feel with the... More

Some of the hostel service on our trip. Neat and tidy rooms. Well worth the money. Each time we came back to Quito (3 times) we found ourselves right back at this awesome hostel. This hostel even took us in when we arrived at 3:45am from a night bus.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two weeks while learning Spanish. We loved it. The price is great and everyone is really chilled. The owners are really nice and helpful. The hostel is located in old town - very close to the food market. The casa itself is really cosy- lots of small relaxing communal areas. It's three-stories high... More

Me and my boyfriend were at colonial house for about 2 weeks. We had plans to find a different hostel after our galapagos trip, but it was so fun and lovely that we organized to stay there longer when we got back. In order to stay we switched to whatever room was open that night, so we've stayed in a... More

We stayed two nights there. When we arrived, a volounteer was at the reception desk. He made a pretty good job. Room was nice, infrastructure is also very good. Kitchens are small and not overequipped... but to cook in Quito...? However, the mercado is so close and there are options around from 2 to 10 dollars to get food. After... More
