We booked a twin room but those don't actually exist so ended up in a double which we were not happy about and moved to a dorm the next day. Staff were not helpful and it felt like we were being a bit of a nuisance. HOWEVER, hostel itself was amazing which is why we stayed. Great people, the group... More

The hostel is clean and bed is comfortable. Staff are helpful. However, it is very noisy at night. First, people make noise, though not deliberately, when they are walking on the wooden floor. Second, it is strange that there is a dog in the hostel at night (it seems that it is only there at night from 9:00pm to 6:00... More

Spend a few nights in this hostel and had a great time. It's really easy to meet people here and the staff is really nice and helpfull. The bathrooms are big and clean. They organize fun activities every night (salsa is recommended; only the bbq night was a bit dissapointing). Besides that, they have a nice free walking tour where... More

The Community Hostel is located a short walk from the historical old town, and right near the central market, making it a perfect spot to base yourself. It is impeccably clean, with delicious breakfasts and fun activities every day, from a walking tour to a Friday night food tour. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable, and downstairs there... More

This was our third time at the Community Hostel. We really enjoyed our stay the first two times but this time they had done some major remodelling and it was even better. They added not only more rooms but also three more toilets and three more very nice showers. This addition of the separate toilets means you don't have to... More

Be sure to book early because it does fill up. The common tables can get crowded for breakfast and dinner. We also found some of the staff to be unfriendly and more interested in socializing. Overall excellent accomodations, clean bathrooms and great beds. The other travelers we met were really ncie and interesting!

Community deserves all the great reviews without a doubt. The rooms are spacious, there are lockers for your valuables and the beds are REALLY comfy. Bathrooms are the nicest I've seen in a hostel for a very long time, and the food (breakfast for $2.50, dinner for $5) is amazing quality. There are also plenty of good, local Ecuadorian restaurants... More

Had a great time at this hostel. They offer breakfast and dinner for a fair price and have a large area for hanging out/planning/drinking beers, making it very easy to meet other travellers. They also offer day trips for $30-40 which were very well done.

I had only booked one night and ended up staying five. Could not have asked for more - really friendly staff, amazing food, great tours and lots of nice people staying there. Pros - 1) Staff were super nice and helpful. They did their best to accomodate me and went so far as to lend me an adaptor (mine broke)... More
