Located close to the Centro Historico. Room: clean and we had hot water but towards the end of the shower it got cold. One thing that I found very inconvenient is that back then (not sure if this still applies) they only took cash -- $20 bills or smaller. We almost lost our plane because we only had $100 bills and they flat out refused to take them, making us go to the bank to change it (which took longer than the 10 min they said it would).
Although initially they were very accommodating, as we did arrive in the middle of the night, I think this is something you should ask and take into consideration if you do stay to avoid having the same issue we had.
I feel this is a nice little place though and would recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our cozy hostel is conveniently located near all major public transportation, inside a traditional neighborhood of Quito called San Blas since 2003, in the border between the Old and New Town. Only 8 minutes away to the main square "Plaza Grande" and 20 minutes away to La Mariscal (walking distances). We are only steps away from famous historic sites and all of these monuments to Latin and Ecuadorian history and culture have culminated in making our neighborhood a UNESCO heritage site. ... more less
