Community Hostel was one of my best hostel experiences while backpacking South America. The highlight of the hostel is the staff, who are helpful and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. They will help you book trips to the Amazon and local areas. The breakfast and dinner is cheap and delicious. They host events each night and the hostel has communal... More

I loved staying at Community. Here's why: 1) Location. Right in the historic centre, easy walking distance to most of the main tourist attractions in Quito. Close to the trolley stations and to the market. 2) Comfy beds. Seriously. 3) Hot water showers, all the time, with good water pressure. 4) Clean. 5) Kitchenette. And free drinking water always available.... More

A one night stay before leaving Quito, the staff were very useful for any questions, it was a bit noisy but not too bad. There is the brewery over the road and the food market over the street during the day, both worth a visit.

Community hostel is my home away from home. It is almost too easy to settle into my comfort zone again and forget that I am traveling. The historic district is beautiful, and I got to know it well on the hostel's free walking tour. The breakfast (2.50) and dinner (5.00) are amazingly delicious and HUGE. The owner and all the...

Overall a very pleasant stay at Community hostel. The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are really comfortable with good blankets. The only downside about the whole hostel is the bathroom situation. I stayed in one of the dorms on the top floor and there was only one bathroom for all of the rooms, which - probably due to...

I was a little anxious about staying in a hostel, but this was such a blast. We stayed here for two nights, Eduardo and Kat took great care of us. The hostel is neat, and had all the basic facilities that one needs. Met so many great people here, and had excellent post dinner conversations with them.

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
