Had a great time at this hostel. They offer breakfast and dinner for a fair price and have a large area for hanging out/planning/drinking beers, making it very easy to meet other travellers. They also offer day trips for $30-40 which were very well done.

I had only booked one night and ended up staying five. Could not have asked for more - really friendly staff, amazing food, great tours and lots of nice people staying there. Pros - 1) Staff were super nice and helpful. They did their best to accomodate me and went so far as to lend me an adaptor (mine broke)... More

Be sure to book in advanced because this place is almost always full, and for good reason. The staff are like family, the breakfast is the most incredible I've had in all of South America and the beds are insanely comfortable- Community is my home away from home!

Clean and modern throughout, Comfortable beds, lockers, great breaky and communal dinners (both extra). Amazing huge shower heads but water generally runs stinking hot or freezing cold. Good travel agency for booking tours, but if you need something on a different day (and therefore a different company) they don't have any information. Great location near the old town and the...

I've been to plenty of sociable hostels, but there was something different about Community Hostel. It was hard to tell apart the staff from the guests - everyone was so nice, friendly, and rather than always sitting behind a desk, the staff (which included members from all around the world) would take us on nights out, sit with us at...

I've been to quite a bit of hostels around the world (5 continents 40+ countries) and Community by far tops them all. Community is great not because of its facilities (they are solid, by the way), but because of its people. Marco the owner/manager, Carla the travel manager, the chef, the walking tour guide, and the rest of the staff.... More

Couldn't ask for anything more - these guys do it right on every level. The food is super, the staff are very welcoming, helpful and really fun. The hostel is clean, bright and very comfortable. Community Hostel is truly a gem and we very much appreciated their hospitality. We will be back again!

I couldn't have asked for a better hostel in Quito (though it is also in my top 3 of all hostels in South America) - beautiful huge building, loads of facilities like a rooftop terrace and 2 kitchens, 24 hour hot water (and amazing, huge, clean bathrooms) and free tea and coffee and potable water. They also run events like... More

We had a nice two night stay at this hostel. The rooms are comfy and clean, and the shared spaces are nice also. Very sociable! The location is fantastic too. The biggest highlight for me however was the excellent and cheap food, which was of restaurant quality. The only downsides would be that it's noisy at night, with people playing... More

After bouncing around hostels in Ecuador, this place was such a lovely surprise and relief! Everyone was so friendly and helpful (staff especially, but also the guests) and everything was so CLEAN. The mattresses and pillows were nice and fluffy, and we slept really well. We actually ended up staying a bunch of extra nights because the atmosphere and the... More
