DO NOT STAY HERE! The staff are terrible. Specifically one guy who was incredibly rude, obnoxious and makes you feel very uncomfortable and not welcomed. Also, to make things even worse, he was sleeping in my friends bed when we got back one night... Very creepy!! We constantly saw people with reservations come into the hostel and be told their...

Well first the good things: The Hostel is quite cheap (although more expensive than on the homepage) and the location is pretty good. The rooms were big enough and the good thing about the room is, that a 8 bed dorm is nearly divided in two rooms. You have the possibilty to lock up some stuff and the beds were... More

Stayed here fpr four nights and the rooms were very comfortable and clean (stayed in two different dorms). Communal areas were nice and good for both chilling and drinking. Deals at the bar were fairly good but not allowed own alcohol in hostel. Staff were a little disorganised when it came to bookings and payment but otherwise great stay.

Nice place, close to some good nightlife, no need for a taxi to get back. Has 2 big nice TV. Bad things: They have 2 wifi routers and the one that is near the rooms and the computers of the hostel crash all the time. The shower has some problems, the hot/cold water sometimes changes very fast to the extreme,... More

Not recommend any single female to stay in this place ever was a nightmare. Even if the place... More

Located in the Mariscal, Quito, good location for party, the Colonial Town can be reached by Bus (Station just a 1min walk from the hostel) within 10 Minutes, north and south bus terminal can be reached by taxi within 20 and 45 minutes (depending on traffic) Hostel is nice, but depends in which room you are. The separate 8 bed... More

It's a shame as this hostel has potential- nice space to chill out, cute dog and big kitchen. Expensive for what it is- better hostels for cheaper with breakfast over the road. Staff moody especially blond with frizzy hair. Lost our booking after returning late from the amazon- originally sent us out at midnight to find elsewhere until we demanded... More

This is a great hostel for backpackers who aren't overly bothered about the standard of facilities (mostly average although cleaned every day). Despite the showers and Wi-Fi being occasionally temperamental, generally the staff are very helpful and happy (1 notable exception who you will guess I'm sure if you stay here) and Santiago the owner is great. Located maximum a... More

This should be a great hostel. There is a cool bar/TV/games room area and two other spaces to socialise. The rooms are OK and the showers are hot. However it is definitely not a party hostel (as it claims) and some (not all) of the staff there just are not doing the hostel justice. We had to argue with one... More
