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.

They're always available to help. My room was on the north side so damp & chilly. Bring your long underwear & warm clothes to be comfortable. They have a... More

Clean and safe place with an excellent breakfast. Gerd, the owner, was very helpful and offered some great advice about the area. The hostel is centrally located and close to restaurants & bars but in a safe and quiet area of Mariscal. I would stay there again on my next visit to Quito.

The Hostal Zentrum is a very pleasant and friendly place in the new town of Quito. Although it's very centrally located - which makes it an extremely convenient place to stay - it's still surprisingly quiet. It's not the typical "Lonely Planet" backpacker hostel, so if you want to party a lot or meet a lot of international travellers, it's... More
