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

It is a good accommodation at a good location in Quito. There is no any extra fee the price of the room is exactly what you expected and calculated in advance, TAX and service fee is included,no surprising when you are paying. The rooms are very clean and big enough, the beds were comfortable, the staff is helpful and kind,... More

Let me tell you that now we install a double pane in our windows facing the street, this is because we want to reduce the noise in our rooms. We initiated with our rooms of category Deluxe and Superior and... 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! One of the nicest places we have stayed during our 4 months travelling, especially for the price. Breakfast was amazing - served on the roof top overlooking... More

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!). While... More

Hi, I am sorry, but you guys are not used to follow any rule and, as always, at the end of this history the bad people is the people from the hostel. There are limits for every thing and when you cross that limit we have to put a stop. This is a family hostel and not a place where... More

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

I will reply to this comment for respect to my clients.
