Staying at the Jumbo Lodging worked out great for us. We used it as a base while we traveled around both Ecuador and Peru. Luis (the host) is a classy, trustworthy and dependable guy for sure (he spoke some English too). He picked up us from the Airport and was more than willing to drive us to the Quito airport a couple of times very early in the morning (The Quito airport takes forever to get to. One of the big drawbacks of Quito). I had a single room and it was huge and had a nice view of the city. There was no TV in the room; but that was fine with me. I wasn't interested in traveling all the way to Ecuador to watch TV.
The neighborhood is OK, some steep hills, narrow streets and lots of older buildings. There are some barking dogs in the neighborhood, but that didn't bother me too much. And there were ear plugs in each room. I never used them.
You are a five to ten minute cab ride to the Historical district. So the location is superb.
Luis made us a very nice breakfast each morning at the time we designated and answered any questions we may have had about our stay in Ecuador. We felt fortuante to have stayed here.
