We couldn't sleep most of the night in this hostel. People having sex in dorm, other waking you up at 7am and making a lot of noise... Without any consideration for you! Furthermore the shower is really dirt with hair everywhere. Finally, the breakfast is not fresh, it comes from the freezer... Would recommend not to go there.

I stayed here for 6 nights whilst in Quito and cannot fault it. It has a great common area, the place is kept really clean all the time and the hosts even cooked some Colombian food one night. I'm returning to Quito before I fly out of Ecuador and will be returning here for sure.

The atmosphere was laid back and positive. Great location, easy to get around the city from the hostel by foot or ecovia. Only downside is that being in the club district, it... More

Great location, short stroll to things, and a friendly and helpful staff make this a nice hostel option for Quito. Dorms were simple but good and I happened to meet nice travelers in this hostel. Good for backpacking.

What a great place to stay. It is in Marascal and within walking distance to parks and the historic centre. I had my purse stolen by a fellow backpacker from my locker and the staff were absolutely marvellous helping me with security footage of the thief and taking me to the police station to make a report.

One of the better hostel I've stayed at in South America during the last 4 months. Not anything extremely special. Just nice atmosphere and friendly staff with an nice location really did it for me. Also they serve breakfast and the have a kitchen for your use. Would really recommend this place.
