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

First time out of the country and stayed a few places before this one. This was far the best! Met many different people from all over the world. Went on food tours, city tours and got to experience most of Quito. The staff is very helpful and if you need anything, just ask! Absolutely the best stay. $10 for a... More

Somewhat communal atmosphere - but the 3-4 American people who worked there weren't the nicest or most helpful (and seemed to prefer hanging out with only each other but in the common area), however the owner and other Ecuadorians that worked there were super nice and awesome. Location is pretty good, Quito is an awesome city but during the night... More

Stayed at community for a couple of nights and couldn't have asked for anything more. 4 bed dorm was clean as were the communal bathrooms (1 per floor). Best thing about this hostel was the food: every breakfast and dinner was very reasonably priced, delicious and filling. Also the community vibe was very strong, we felt right at home despite...

We had a great stay at Community. Would recommend making use of the taxi service if you're arriving late from the airport-it's a long way! The reception/common area is a great place to hang out and chat to fellow travellers but if you would rather chill out in the dorms the beds are amazing and sooo comfy! The staff were... More

I had a great experience at this hostel! To start the breakfast was amazing, it became one of the best parts of my day when I was there. The people that worked there/stayed there were so friendly and my friend and I met great people who we still stay in touch with. The hostel held great activities, we did their... More
