After I was robbed my first night in Quito (leaving Plaza Foch at about 9:45 pm), Yolanda and Carlos helped to salvage my time in Quito. They lent me cash while I waited for my new ATM card to arrive and even suggested that I take a short 2 day trip to Los Banos, so I could optimise my time... More

Very hospitable - Yolanda and Carlos don't speak much English but they go above and beyond. The rooms are clean, the breakfast plentiful, hot water showers, don't put paper in the toilets. Carlos drove us to the equator (waited for us to do both tours and pictures, then to El Panecillo, then the bus station, made sure we got on... More

This place is just on the edge of the Mariscal area, short walk to the Foch plaza area. The house clean, good breakfast, even was fortunate to have an invite to supper with Yolanda and Family. Will return to... More

We stayed in Posada Tambuca only for one night, while returning from a trip to Galapagos Islands. Yolanda welcomed us and explained how the facilities of the Posada work. We've got a big room for 2 people in the second floor, with a bunker bed and a single bed, that were really confortable. Bathroom was right out of the room,... More

Yolande is a friendly host; she takes care you feel home and can help with trips thru Ecuador. The hostal is on walking distance from Mariscal centre. The room is complete and facilities top and clean. The breakfast is served at your own time. Yolande arranged an airport pick up against very competitive price. Have stayed three times at Tambuca...

Water was hot and wifi signal was strong. Location was good and only one block from the metro. The rooms were tiny but rather charming. Cleanliness was good in... More
