Great atmosphere, staff are friendly and helpful, and the hostel is clean, well maintained and WiFi connection is great. There is breakfast and dinner each day, though it costs a few dollars, and there is the option to go out each night together to bars or clubs. The free walking tour is great, but be careful at night and take... More

Stayed in November 2014, just catching up now. We enjoyed our stay here. The strength of this hostel is the hospitality of the staff and the community of travelers. Many of the guests would sit around the dining table of the top floor as they used the internet and exchange stories and advice. It really is a great starting point... More

First the only negative point: the location. Otherwise I would have given the hostel itself 5 out of 5 points.

When we arrived one of... More

The rooms seemed nice but best of all the staff/ volunteers were very friendly and helpful! We also went on the Free walking tour of Old town Quito which leaves from this hostel which again was great! The... More

Community Hostel is affordable, extremely clean, staff are not only helpful but exceptionally sweet and its close to the market, laundry and restaurants. The location is close to the Old Town (which was my preference) and easy access to the market for fresh fruits, veg and baked treats. I stayed at this hostel twice both times in the private room...

Mon-Sat they also... More

The rooms are nice and with comfortable beds. There are so many activities going on all the time and the free walking tour is great! It's clean and... More
