Mario´s house is great (if you look for a quite place). You feel like at home, you got everything you need. If you want to have some fun you just walk a few blocks and get to the Mariscal, if you want to go to downtown is very easy from there and there is a large supermarket around the corner,.... More

Me and a friend elected to stay Casona de Mario due to it having a kitchen and its general homely look. From the moment we arrived we felt uncomfortable.The woman who opened the gate for us made no effort to smile or even say hello and simply asked if we had a reservation. We were shown to our room and... More

Casona de Mario has had a long-standing presence in Quito. I first stayed here ten years ago, and returned this spring in hopes that its good location, friendly travelers, and safe/secure set up would not have changed. Pros: Inexpensive with simple but generally clean rooms and a communal kitchen. Excellent location near La Catolica and the surrounding business district, close... More

La casona de Mario was one of the best places we stayed in our South America trip. I honestly dont understand the people who complain about this property. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. There is a well-equipped kitchen for the guests, several bathrooms and a great garden to relax. The owners of the place, Mario and his wife are really... More

It's the third time we've come here with two kids (4 and 5 yrs old) and we warmly recommend the place. The owners are very kind and helpful and the neighbourhood (La Floresta) is secure and very quiet as the hostel is. It's a very nice place to meet peaceful people travelling or studying in Quito. The small kitchen has... More

I stayed at Casona de Mario for several weeks, and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and quaint vibe. The owners were very kind and accommodating, and helped me store luggage, call taxis, etc. La Floresta is a beautiful, fun part of Quito to stay in too: plenty of quirky businesses (look for Ocho y medio coffee shop/ theater, Pobre Diablo...

I was very keen to stay at Mario's due to the great reviews. I wish I hadn't. We were made to feel unwelcome from the start with a gruff greeting of 'do you have a reservation?' It's not hard to smile and say 'hello, welcome...do you have a reservation?' We were then given a quick tour and left alone. The... More
