On my trip I found myself in Quito three times, and spent all at Community Hostel. On my first arrival I was welcomed very warmly by the staff who explained what I could see around the city and what the safer and unsafe places were. Throughout my three stays they were always happy to answer any questions I had about... More

Super knowledgeable and friendly staff, super clean, SUPER comfortable beds, nice communal areas with great resources. Nice communal kitchen, balconies, free walking/food tours, close to the market and (at least in my experience) a relatively safe part of the city... highly recommended.

This hostel was the first stop on our travels and it turned out to be such a good choice. The location is perfect just away from the centre, it's easy to walk to all the tourist sites and I felt very safe. The walking tour is also great. The staff and the other travellers are what make this place great... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hostel. We arranged airport transfers with the staff. The location is in old town and the daily free tour leaves right from the hostel. The staff was great. The hostel was clean and offered free coffee and tea throughout the day. Don't miss the market almost right across the street

The staff and the tours were amazing! The staff really cared about their community and their guests. Everything was clean, staff was courteous and informative. The only downer was sharing 2 toilets between several guests :p The food was great and the staff was very detailed when it came to safety and do's and don'ts. Great stay!

Community Hostel is a really good place to stay and meet people while you're in Quito. The social areas are large and well-equipped, and the staff are friendly. Breakfast and dinner are available to sign up for each day, and are usually varied and very tasty. Right near the old town, it's a good base to explore the city from... More

Best time great service and the food was fantastic. The free guided tour was easy to follow and gave you a good sense of history and of how the city was formed and developed. Staff was excellent and always answered question on the spot and gave great detail to help us on our way. Great job!!!

Everyone that works at this amazing hostel is fun and helpful. It was my first time in South America and I felt comfortable and safe at all times at the Community Hostel. The FOOD they prepare is AMAZING. Clean bedding and bathrooms. There was travellers of all age groups, young couples, families and solo travellers. I have nothing but good... More

We arrived just as the community was eating dinner. We had travelled all day and were tired, dirty and HUNGRY. We asked if we could get something to eat. The "manager", in between bites of his dinner, said sorry there is nothing. We asked were we could go and he had only bad news "nothing around here sorry". The cook... More

Really enjoyed my stay here for a number of reasons. Those beds are suoer comfy, the breakfast and dinner food are restaurant quality and the size if the hostel and arrangement allows for good social interaction. Ive been to the secret garden hostel close by too and although another great hostel it doesn't deliver the same care and attention.
