Good value for old town Quito. Simple hostel, clean, economical. Great WiFi (I work while traveling). The downstairs community room is okay, but the rooftop terrace and kitchen is great. Bathroom and shower is clean and hot water. For a good budget spot near the historic center of Quito this is good.

The facilities are clean and the staff is very friendly. It's central. The only thing I absolutely did not like is that the reception isn't open 24 hours. I felt locked up as if I was in a prison. Because they close everything up. You have to tell them in advance if you want to get out after 22.00

This is without a doubt the cleanest and tidiest hostel I have ever stayed in. The lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and even had toilet paper and soap. It is staffed by very lovely and helpful people who speak excellent English and who were very knowledgable about the city and travel requirements. The hostel is well situated near the... More

Located near the hostels area of San Blas, this fairly clean "hostel" offers many private rooms that are reasonably priced and offer a good alternative to the crowded dorm rooms of Quito. Staff are courteous, flexible (they allowed me to leave my part of my luggage in storage while I explored the rest of the country), and speak good English.... More

Room and bedding was clean. The manager was king enough to offer us towels at no extra cost. It didn't help much though because there was some problem with the water system and it was very dirty. So we couldn't take showers or brush teeth with tap water. The neighbourhood is okay - not safe to be outside after dark.... More

Stayed here in November and got a great deal of about $15pp for a spacious modern room with private bathroom with hot water, cable tv and amazing wifi as well as breakfast included!

Arriving in Quito, we first stayed at Hostel Guayunga nearby (Calle Antepara). Being given the worst room there, we quickly changed hostels. Found this one by chance, and got a very, very nice room on third floor with private bathroom and a big window facing the street/basilica for usd 15 per person (even cheaper than our first, terrible room!).
