i would like to start by saying that if you are coming to quito, you have to stay in the old historic town. its where the museums and theatres are, and there are hundreds of great local shops on charming andalucian style streets that the spaniards built. dont get fooled into buying a room in marsical, which is industrial. so, for the price, the hostal cultural is great. its homey and beautiful, clean and friendly, the beds are warm and the rooms charming. alicia who runs it and all the staff are sweet. what they dont speak of english they make up in kindness. after a whie i felt at home. i even go to the kitchen to make my own coffee, or ask other favors. theres a tv in the room, if you like that sort of thing, and every room has private bath and good internet access. if you dont have your own laptop, pc's are provided in the reception area. that's where i'm writing this review. i have been here a few times already, and i am sure to come back. and no, i am not getting any perks for the compliments :) (unless i can negotiate some later, lol ) :)
