I stayed twice during my trip. Mostly very friendly staff, awesome food that is great value, clean rooms, nice beds and lots of good common areas. There are a limited number of bathrooms, which initially I thought was lacking, but actually never had a problem finding an empty one. Though the neighbourhood is a tad seedy, the location is really... More

Really great choice. Located next to the old town of Quito, can access everything on foot (a few steep roads, well that's how Quito is!) including the direct buss to La Midad del Mundo. Beds are comfortable(finally a buck bed with enough space for you to sit normal without bumping your head on the top bed)and big feather cushions! Nice... More

I absolutely loved the Community Hostel in Quito. Yes, the area may have a bit of a reputation for being slightly dangerous, but if you are careful and don't take any obvious items with you, it's fine. The community aspect that the staff projects is just great. If you go away from Quito then return to the hostel, you get... More

The hostal district is a little bit dogdgy, but community hostel still makes your stay in quito awesome. They arrange lots of tours. I slept in a 4 bed dorm and the bed was perfect. They serve breakfest and dinner for a really good price and the meals are always good!

I stayed at community two times during my trip in Ecuador! It's a great place to meet other travellers! Great hanging areas and kitchen, and the beds are supercomfy! Best breakfast and dinner I ever had in Ecuador! (Only $2,5 and $5) The crew is awesome! And very helpful! Thank you!

The community hostel is the place to be. Located in the old town and knowledgable staff make it feel like home. Staff Isaac and Ovi went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and got where we needed to be. Thanks guys !!! Also Marco's the man. Also to forget, the food is to die for! The meals...

This place was fantastic - the staff was so much fun and extremely helpful. They were bilingual and knowledgable of the city and surrounding areas as well. To top it off, the food was amazing! I felt at home there after only spending one night.

We really liked this place. Staff and volunteers were very keen to help out anyone at the hostel. They also run a free walking tour of the city, which was great. The communal dinners were great, they even get a chef to come in and prepare them! Recommend for sure. Only recommendation for the hostel would be darker curtains, as... More

I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights in late February, 2015. It was one of the best hostels I have stayed at to date; with really clean bathrooms and common areas, cheap yet consistantly AMAZING restaurant quality breakfasts and dinners (the menu also changed every day!) and a really fun bunch of staff who hung out with us and...
