Friendly staff, clean rooms, safe, quiet - what more could you ask for? The wifi even worked! The hostel itself is very cute and quaint in a historic building - made the stay that much more fun as we felt part of the historic area. Everything you would need is nearby within walking distance, and was very near public transit... More

We stayed here in total one week, just because we liked it so much and felt really safe in the neighborhood. I have read reviews here that the area is not safe - but too be honest I can't see why. Everyone in the neighborhood greeted us friendly, there are still people on the street even at later hours and... More

This hostal is a great place to meet people. It is a beautiful, clean and secure and the staff is very friendly. They are mostly volunteers who are traveling from other countries so I could relate to them well as a fellow traveler. It is also in a nice location. If I return to Quito I will stay here again!

We stayed twice in this hostal. It is a very nice place. and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in two private rooms. One of them had a private bathroom which could have been cleaner. The other one didn't have a bathroom. The shared bathroom on the first floor was clean most of the time. I definitely... More

We had a private room which was very large and had a comfortable bed. The walls were quite thin though so I could pretty much here conversations going on next door. The water pressure in the shower was quite weak but the temperature was good (if you had the patience to fiddle with the knob a little). Breakfast was nice.... More

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
