This place is awesome! It truly is a community. I came here as a solo traveler, and met a bunch of cool people to spend time with. The food is excellent and is served family style--so it's easy to meet people. Good deal at $2.50 for breakfast and $5 for dinner. During the evenings they have movies or social outings... More

This hostel is very well run. The owner, Marco, takes pride in making sure his guests have a good time. I was laid up there for over 15 days waiting for a parcel, and the staff made me feel at home. Help getting around Quito, arranging tours, and assistance talking to Spanish DHL officials. The breakfasts and dinners offered are... More

Great vibe and excellent places to hang out and meet people. Organized activities every day of the week and free walking tours are offered pretty much daily. Definitely worth doing the... More

Being here felt a little bit like home, which was exactly what I needed after four months of travelling. The beds are veryyyy comfy (matresses are rather soft in... More

Super comfy beds and very helpful staff. Was recommended this place by a friend. Stayed at both Secret Garden and Community hostel and although both great, good for different reasons. This hostel is much smaller and definitely has more of a community feel to it. This hostel kept hold of my credit card for me which had to be resent... More

By far the best hostal I have ever stayed at. The people were great, the staff always friendly and helpful. It was always very clean, the beds are great and comfortable. The food they served never failed to be excellent, and was reasonably priced. I met so many great people here, I would not mind coming back.
