Two adults and 6 teenagers were welcomed in this cute and reasonably priced hostel with a great breakfast. Well located in Quito, safe and clean, it's a great choice for any traveling group or family. Very friendly staff and owners even helped with our laundry after a Jungle tour.

The Folklore is situated on Madrid and Ponteverdra in the La Floresta district of Quito. The hotel is 10 minutes walk to the Mariscal and a 45 minutes walk to the historical old town. The rooms are clean and bright and the owner Bernardo is a friendly and welcome host. They serve a buffet breakfast in the cafeteria next to... More

The neighborhood is good, lots of shops and restaurants close by. The breakfast selections at the hotel are tasty. The rabbit is very cute. The husband and wife co-owners seemed friendly and helpful until cash disappeared from a locked closet in my room. They ignored my reporting of the problem and were not the least concerned. I had to insist... More

the folklore is situated on a quiet street about a 15minute walk from the active centre of plaza foch and about a 1 hour walk from the old city. Rooms are a good size with large bath and shower with hot water. The included breakfast is very good. The only negative is the price. Other hostals/hotels in the area are... More

Bernado is very helpful in providing advice, maps and laptops! and all you could ask for including a reasonably priced airport transfer ($30). The... More
