All in all a decent hostel, but we had to move as we discovered first one snail in the evening and then another in the morning in our en-suite bathroom. We could have lived with spiders and cockroaches, as these are fairly normal on a backpacker trip in South America, but how the snails got into our bathroom we just... More

We were originally going to stay for two nights here, but we felt so welcome that we extended it by another two. They arranged a collection from the airport for us and both Dante and Carrina were very welcoming, not to mention patient with our high-school grasp of Spanish! The rooms were spotless and beds made up daily (not what... More

This hostel was one of the most beautiful hostels I have ever stayed in. The ceilings are very high and many rooms have a private bathroom- such a beautiful building! The hostel is clean with huge rooms and it is in a great location, near the city center. I would absolutely recommend this hostel to anyone going to Quito. This... More

We booked this hostal via the internet from the Netherlands for our first two nights in Quito. They offered an Airport service for 35 dollars which was very comfortable after a long flight. It took around an hour to get from the Airport of Quito to the city centre of Quito. Hostal Ecuador was situated in the historic centre of... More

The title says it all really. We struggled to find anywhere nice & affordable in the old town of Quito. I'm sure this is a regular problem in lots of capital cities where prices are naturally higher than elsewhere in the country. This is where we ended up, and whilst we're glad we didn't stay in the Mariscal area, the... More

We booked 4 nights at Hostal Ecuador in Quito. We took the precaution to call the hostal over the phone and re-confirmed through E-Mails, with its manager, Dante Garcia. At our arrival, late at night, we found out that there was no room available although they had sent a taxi to the airport to pick us up as arranged. Mr.... More

It's a clean and friendly hostal, with helping staff, good free breakfast and in the middle of the Historic Center, very easy to go by foot to the main attractions. The single rooms are very small, because they built bathrooms inside them, that is a good thing, but lets very little space for you, your luggage and anythihng else you... More

It's good location and friendly staff are the best things about this Hostal. It is in need of repair and is showing its age. It's charming but with little work could be brought up to decent standards for the price. Don't get the room right off reception!! It's a cave with the only window looking out to the front door...

Do not trust a reservation booked at this hotel!!! I booked a room for two nights at Hostal Ecuador for our family of four who were arriving in Quito very late at night. I had a confirmation email from Dante and I reconfirmed 2 days before we arrived. As planned his driver Edison picked us up. And Edison was great.... More

Short walk to all the main icons of old town including being a 3 minute walk to Al Rondo, the happening street for music and restaurants. My room was huge, the building very charismatic. The staff were super helpful with their limited English...even helping me get a better seat on my flights. Breakfast was just the Ecuador norm. Security was... More
