This was definitely the best hostel I’ve stayed in so far. They really live up to their name by fostering a true sense of community and making it really easy for guests to meet each other and make new friends. When I stayed here, most of the guests ate breakfast and dinner together (the staff are all great cooks!) and even engaged in some of the social activities that the staff would coordinate (food tour, movie night, etc.) which were a lot of fun! As a woman traveling solo, I was really happy I chose this place because I met some awesome people, whom I now call my friends, and felt really safe during my stay in Quito. This was also one of the cleanest hostels I’ve been to. The rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and common areas were always clean, welcoming spaces. It is also located in a great spot. It is within walking distance from the colonial center of Quito and near a bunch of travel agencies to book trips around Quito. Probably the best thing about Community Hostel (next to the bottomless coffee and tea) is the super friendly staff. Everyone that works there is so nice and will bend over backwards to make sure you have everything you need. Love this place!
P.S. Book Omar (the driver for the hostel) to pick you up from the airport. Riding with him is much more entertaining than taking a taxi!
