Stayed here in December, has a fun pool table in the lounge and a cost effective breakfast. There weren't a lot of people staying when we were there, our 8-bed dorm didn't have a lot of beds occupied and it left us asking for more from the social vibe. It's super close to a ton

So I'll try to be as honest and unbiased as possible. I'll preface it with that it's probably my least favourite hostel I've ever stayed at, but it's functional as a hostel. (I've stayed at maybe 10 hostels total). It has some good qualities, and some not great qualities. If all

Response from BluehouseTeam, Propietario at Blue House
Responded Sep 28, 2018
Dear guest, Thank you for your stay and comments. Blue House Hostel is a basic budget accommodation for travelers looking for a local experience, right in the heart of the famous La Mariscal Touristic District, where bars and restaurants cater fun nights and global flavors to every taste. At our hostel we want to offer a laid back flair and music is part of it. Carefully chosen from our playlists under a lounge and chill out concept, music is played at very decent levels from 8 am to 11 pm. It’s fun to play a pool game or enjoy a morning coffee to a sound beat. About payment options, we have temporarily suspended credit card honoring until a new system is implemented and we apologize for the nuisance. Nevertheless, there are several ATM machines located within two blocks range. Change is an issue happening everywhere and we strongly advise every traveler to carry always the smallest notes possible. The bright side of it, is that it means you will not expend like crazy and daily goods and services are so conveniently priced to make you hold on to small bills and coins and save a bundle. We are making some changes in the beds configuration and amenities to make sure our guests will have the best sleeping experience. Hot water is gas heated, so it takes a while to reach the shower, but then you can enjoy a steady pleasant water temperature as much as you like. We decided to offer a 10 am check out time, because our travelers are very active and enjoy an early rising to get the best of the journey and unless we have a pending reservation, which could have been the cleaning lady, we do honor a later time check out at no additional rates. Limited access at the gate is done to ensure the best safety to guests backed up by a complete CCTV system. We do not provide a key but in the near future, we will be installing a coded entry system to ensure a diligent access process. We definitely would like to invite you to stay on a near future and to take advantage of our new old town location, so you will get the best of Quito. Thank you again.

This hostel is where my personal desire to backpack begun. I went with a suitcase and almost immediately realized that I needed to exchange it for a backpack. I did. The hostel is in Plaza Foch which is a crazy party every weekend. The Blue House is a great place to meet
