I stayed in the hostel two nights and the service was ok. NOT the cleanest nor the nicest but definitely on okay place close the old town. I was suppose to have a bigger and a nicer private room, but in my mind it was dark and small room.

I stayed here a few nights with a friend and enjoyed it. This isn't a party hostel, though the rooftop is a very cool place to have a drink while enjoying a gorgeous view of the city. The rooms were clean and quiet and the staff were helpful. There's a police station very close-by, and the surrounding area seemed pretty... More

Stay here or regret it.. Your choice! The first sign of a terrible place is when they don't welcome you when you walk in the door .. Instead they ask you to pay for 3 nights stay up front before even seeing the room. The rooms are terrible. The single room has no windows and no air. Than in the... More

Unfortunately, this is not the entire true. You guys broke the sink after your Friday´s night party. You guys returned to our hostel so drunk late at night (3am aprox.) that you guys could not open the main door by your own, I am sorry but one of you guys was lying on the floor of the street so drunk...

We stayed at Chicago hostel twice. The first time for 2 nights on our way to Galapagos, then we left a bag there, and booked our return a month later. We work online and double checked that the room we would have would have Wifi, as many of their rooms do not have Wifi. We paid in advance for a... More

Stay: 12/2008 Located close to the Centro Historico. Room: clean and we had hot water but towards the end of the shower it got cold. One thing that I found very inconvenient is that back then (not sure if this still applies) they only took cash -- $20 bills or smaller. We almost lost our plane because we only had... More

Very friendly staff clean rooms. There is a nice roof top terrace, which is great for socializing with other travelers. They sell beer for a reasonable price at the reception desk. There is also a refrigerator and kitchen on the roof. We stayed in a double with one twin and one full bed, and a private bathroom with hot water.... More

I agree on most positive comments, but like to hint on some other things.. Consider not going to this hostel if: - you plan to leave your Bags there for a Night or more - they will charge you for this. Free Storage only goes till 2 p.m. on your checkout-day - if you checked out and want to use... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was big and comfortable with a nice ensuite. We loved the rooftop terrace with views of Quito. The only downside was the noise on our second night from other guests, not something the hostel can really help.
