We loved our stay Mateus and his team welcomed and looked after us superbly. Out our window the basilica and the main walkway to independence square. The building could not have been... More

I had one night in Quito and needed a hotel in a central and safe location as a solo female traveler. I found this hostel to be a good choice. The hotel manager was pretty friendly upon arrival. My room was a good size with two double beds, but the TV did not work. The walls are pretty thin, so... More

The woman there is very sweet, but no English. There is onsite laundry service but it was a little pricey (But priceless after a week of... More

Firstly, if it's the historic centre you're looking for, this is a great place to base yourself in Quito in terms of price, location and staff. The staff were very helpful particularly around safety tips in the area and there is a nice, homely feel about the hostal. Our room was small enough in size, facing out on the street... More

Hostal Quito Cultural is a quaint though worn down hostel in the historic district of Quito, a great place from which to base one's exploration of the city. Rooms are relatively small though comfortable as are the beds. Availability of hot water can vary depending on who else is using water or showering at the same time. Breakfast comes with... More

Right in the centre of Centro Historico, this is a well run hostel has a great atmosphere. Rooms are well looked after and very clean. There is a roof terrace that overlooks the town where you can get away from it all. Unbelievably friendly owner and staff.

I stayed here for one week. This is what I liked: It is in a good location in old town - short walk from most places. Good breakfast - fruit, tea and coffee, juice, eggs and bread. It's a big building with big rooms. The room was always clean. It was always quiet. The host, Matteo, was always helpful and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostal Quito Cultural born of a XVIII century building at the hands of a French architect, this house currently consists as a heritage of Barrio San Marcos the oldest in Quito. With a rich pre-Columbian history, the capital of Ecuador was founded on the ruins of an Inca city, but offers everything a modern traveler may need. Still one of the best preserved historical sites in Latin America and the UNESCO declared world heritage. The location of the hostel is convenient because it allows travelers to move around the old Quito and know all the baroque jewels, like the monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, as well as the church and the college of the Company. The hostel rooms have all the amenities to make guests feel comfortable and can enjoy their holiday as they deserve, our main seal of the fraternity is offered by our staff. ... more   less
