Me and friend spend two nights at this hostel. Carlos picked us up from the airport and helped us get settled in. The following morning we were served a nice hot breakfast and provided with suggestions on things to do for the day. The other people we met at this hostel were also very nice and happy with the accommodations... More

We arrived in Quito and were picked up by Carlos - the son of the family. He's very good in english and we had a perfect conversation whilst driving to Quito. We stayed in Tambuca for almost two weeks and went back two times. Soon it felt like home for us. Carlos and Yolanda always were there for their guests.... More

Posada Tambuca justifies it's excellent placing amongst other hotels in Quito. My girlfriend and I stayed here on 2 occasions. On each occasion, the proprietress, Yolanda, welcomed us with a warmth of a close family member. The breakfasts are an upgrade to other reasonably priced hotels in South America, fresh fruit and good coffee being a highlight. There is a... More

We were warmly received at 5:30 a.m. after an overnight bus trip. We enjoyed coffee and a snack while our room was prepared. We slept and went back for a great breakfast. When we asked if we could hire a car to see Otavalo and Cotacachi Yolanda got Carlitos to take us north for the day. It was a great... More

We found this place on trip advisor and as we drove by taxi into a sketchy seeming neighborhood in the dreary late afternoon drizzle i wondered if we had made a mistake. NO mistake...this place was first rate. It is a hostel type hotel with a large shared bathroom, excellent hot water, nice big rooms, extremely comfortable beds (best in... More

The owners, Yolanda and Carlos, went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed every moment of our stay in Quito. They were helpful with recommendations of things to do and places to eat. The facilities are very clean and our room was comfortable. I would definitely stay again!

In January 2014, I returned alone for business and there was nowhere else I would stay besides Posada Tambuca. The location is perfect and Yolanda, Carlos and Carlitos took great care of me, especially when I got sick. Yolanda nursed me back to health. I don't think there's anything they wouldn't do to make my stay any more comfortable than... More
