The B&B is located few metres from the Quito night life district. We stayed two nights in a private double room, with private bathroom. The room was perfectly clean, the breakfast very good, the people nice and helpful. One of the best stays in Quito, for sure.

We loved our stay here. It's a family run hostal and the owner were brilliant. We arrived after checking out of Vibes Hostal early due to the poor state of the place (it was a construction site and dust was everywhere!) The family welcomed us in and showed us to a 4 bed mixed dorm. The dorms had single beds... More

Travelled as a group of 4. Three of us stayed 4 nights, the other one stayed 3 nights. Rooms are clean enough. There is hot water in the showers but it sometimes goes cold (at which point you tell the owner who changes the tank and it'll heat up again). Breakfast is decent (fruit, eggs, bread, juice and coffee). They... More

Overall not a bad place to stay, it is clean and breakfast is good. However the reason they get a 2 star is because I was treated to rudely by the owners. Firstly my friend was not allowed to wait out on the tables at the front while I put my bags upstairs, this is one of their rules, no... More

We've stayed here for several nights, coming back to Quito from different parts of Ecuador. A very nice place to stay for this price. Room was clean and really quiet, we didn't hear any noise from the street. The owners are very friendly, you do really feel you are home. Breakfast is nice, including fruit salad and fresh juice. And... More

I stayed at this hostel when I first arrived in Quito. The owners seemed nice enough but they put me in the room outside in the back and it is not nice. No windows just a cement block. If you do decide to stay here, make sure you get a room in the main house.

The overall stay was descent and pleasent, good hospitality, the breakfast was great and untipcally rich, facilities were clean, showers were hot but difficult to control- as the temperture changed all the time. The one thing that annoyed me the most (and really made me leave on a sour note) was the fact that I was asked to leave the... More

Had a lovely stay at Hostel Galapagos Natural Life. The staff were absolutely lovely, very friendly and welcoming - especially Luz who gave us a bracelet as a gift when we left!! Lovely breakfast too with a fruit salad, bread, scrambled eggs, coffee etc. Another bonus being no bunk beds in the rooms! Much as gracias por todo!

My wife and I stayed at this hostel during our first week in Quito while we were looking for a place to live. The hostel is in La Mariscal district which is the main party/tourist area in Quito. There is plenty of different types of transportation available in the area (taxis, blue bus, Echovia, etc) so you shouldn't have any... More
