Usually, when we have a bad experience, we just don't leave a review at all but you gotta pop your cherry eventually and these guys really were quite rude. Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay at the hostel so I can't say how it was. We booked with them and we sent emails back and forth clarifying things like airport... More

Staff is incredibly welcoming and accomidating. The beds are like clouds and the food is absolutely delicous. Might be a little more expensive than some other hostels but the cost is totally worth it. Huge comfortable movie room. Really easy to meet other travellers at the large table.

Community Hostel was the first and one of my favorite hostels I stayed at in South America. It was clean and had everything we needed with the added bonus of having the comfiest beds in Ecuador! The vibe and general atmosphere were great, and it was super helpful having an agency downstairs to aid us on our adventures. I would... More

Spacious rooms, bathrooms, good kitchen, best breakfast, great views, friendly staff, good location, spotlessly clean & awesome food! One of the best experiences in hostels, even although it has taken 3 months to post the review, I can now more safely say that out with Colombia, including Peru, Bolivia, Chile & Argentina this place is up there with the best!...

It's honestly one of the best hostels I ever stayed in. Very close to the historic center, amazing friendly and helpful staff, wifi everywhere, great rooms and bathrooms, nice kitchen and two areas to relax in, watch movies, meet people, with the possibility to get delicious breakfasts and dinners. Thanks!

I really enjoyed my stay at Community Hostel, you can really feel the community spirit at the Hostel. The staff is super friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The common areas are super cosy and especially on the big table on the 3rd floor it is very easy to get in contact with other travelers. The breakfast and the dinner they... More

What is so annoying about clean rooms, comfortable beds, amazing food, friendly staff, and fun like minded travelers in the various communal space in this hostel? Well it tempts you to stay longer and next thing you know, you're behind on your itinerary and trying to figure out what you can ditch because of the extra three days you spent... More

The staff were good, I went on two activities that were run by hostel people, the free walking tour and the tour to the middle of the earth. The guy with the dreads was great. They also answered all my questions about crossing the border to Colombia, etc. The guy who works at night didn't really speak good English so... More

We stayed two nights and should have stayed longer. The staff speak perfect English and are super friendly, very helpful. The cosy environment with movie nights, dinners ect are a great way to meet other people. Don't miss the micro brewery just across the street! Great beer, great atmosphere!
