My husband and I stayed several days in July when we entered and departed Quito. The entire staff and the owners are like family. My husband was very ill when we reached Quito. Monic the owner, Jorge the manager, and Tanya the HK were very helpful. After the knee surgery in Loja, my husband needed much help to climb the... More

I booked a room for our family with enough beds for all of us at least a month ahead of time because I knew we would be arriving late at nit and wanted to have us all together in a new place. We arrived at 12:30 at night after a long day of travel to find that they only had... More

My husband and I stayed for one night at hostal alcala. We were in room 12 which is on the upper floor and is nice - has a patio area in front of it, and the room gets good natural light (I hate staying in dark rooms). The room is basic but has everything you need including wifi and TV.... More

I had a nice stay and they were very accommodating. Jorge was great but does not understand English and therefore I could not make another reservation the second time I wanted to stay. The owner Monic was there in the morning. As mentioned in another review, she is a very warm person, informative and most helpful. Make sure to speak... More

My stay during the 2nd week of November was about a week. Although Jorge the Manager did not speak English I understood whatever he spoke. He was very helpful. I met Monic the owner during the latter part of my stay. She is a very warm person, very informative and helpful. Monic lives in a unit on the upper floor.... More

We had a reservation at the Posada del Maple, but they sent us to this hostel. A few thoughts: Near the restaurants/bars, but I wouldn't have felt safe there if I were a woman traveling alone. Good hot water and pressure, but the bathroom was smelly. I was happy they had eggs at breakfast with the toast, juice, and coffee.... More

The rooms are modern, clean, mine was bright. Breakfast is included, Wi-Fi is available, and the place is convenient to the trendy Mariscal area. Service was sullen or non-existent. But most of all, you can hear the nearby club as if you were there. I had an early flight the next day, I didn't manage to sleep a minute--with earplugs!... More

We made a reservation and got it confirmed even twice-the second time the day of arrival. But when we showed up they pretendet not to know anything about it. No excuses no nothing. Very rude! So if you want to be sure to get a room, go somewhere else.
