For 2 weeks, the Hostal Zentrum was the base of myself and more 24 people from my mountaineering club. It is very clean, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, good service and excellent location. The Hostal is runned by Guerd, very efficient and perfectionist, but a bit irritable sometimes, and Frank very pleasant and always willing to help. Excellent.

On first approach, you might think Quito is an inexpensive city to visit - and mostly you'd be right. Taxis are well underpriced, food is predominantly low cost, and attraction admissions can be next to non-existent. But a cursory look at hotel prices can uncover one glaring hole in this assumption. If you want to stay somewhere decent, Quito can... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at the Hostal Zentrum. I agree with many of the other reviews on here-- the location is one of the great selling points about this place. It's so peaceful and quiet, and yet you can walk for a few mere minutes and find yourself in the Mariscal. It's very safe-- the... More

The Hostal has an excellent location in the center of Mariscal while being calm due to the location in a small side street as well as the beauiful green garden. Rooms are large, clean, and some of them have special featrures such as a fire place. The service in the Hostal is great and includes not only a very good... More

We were swayed by the great reviews to stay here. We were quite disappointed. Our room was cheap but really tiny and dark. Other rooms were much bigger but also much more expensive. We were the only guests and it felt very quiet in a 40 bed Hostal. So no one else was there to talk to.There was nothing bright,... More

My son and I stayed here on our first night in Quito. It is a really beautiful hostal with Frank and Gerd who are very helpful and attentive. We arrived at 1am and were let into the gate and given the option of two different rooms. We paid $55/night for a very spacious room that felt more like a suite.... More

We stayed at Zentrum for 4 nights during our time in Quito and loved it. The hotel is great, with fast internet, good places to sit and relax and very attentive staff, who are friendly, and genuinely concerned for your comfort and happiness. They serve an awesome buffet breakfast that is definitely recommended, there is also a beer garden with... More

We stayed at this German owned guest house in Quito on a recommendation for Overlanders from a friend. The owners are really friendly and the guest house well run. We stayed in auxiliary rooms for $10 per person as the guest house was too expensive for us. We could park our motorcycles in a great Parking area. The beds were... More

Very comfortable and relaxing. Convenient to restaurants and transportation. Private room/bath with no complaints. Fine hot water and internet. Exceptional breakfast including fruit, cheese and sausage, eggs cooked to order and served in a courtyard. A congenial German host who spoke Spanish but little English. A focus on German speakers yet inviting for anyone.
