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

The Good: Great location very near historical Quito and restaurants. Staff friendly just not knowledgeable about getting things done around city. Nice old building. The Bad: The price. We stayed in three different places in Quito the cheapest being $20 and was fine. For price not much of a step up at all. Not all rooms look like that advertised... More

We had booked a room with this hostal and they were to meet us at the Quito airport at 9 pm on March 7th. Noone was there!! we were left high and dry. We called their mobile number and noone answered. There is no excuse for this lack of service. We had a very stressful time on our first night... More

I was so impressed by this hostel. The renovated interior of this historical building is very elegant and comfortable, and the location is perfect for accessing the museums, churches and all the sights of the historic downtown. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, answering all my questions about points of interest, bus and train line locations and schedules, etc.... More
