Our family stayed only 2 nights but if we were to stay in Quiito longer we would have continued to stay here. Budget, colourful, lovely spot to sit outside in the garden, hammocks, chilled guests, comfortable and warm beds. Highly recommend the room we had for families, G2. above the garden.

At Colonial house you don't only get a cheap bed, a good location and an awesome breakfast, but what you mostly receive is a lot of love and care by the owners and the staff. Ornelia, Paulina and Cristian are amazing people who will do their best to help you out. I really felt I was part of the family... More

Very clean, safe, affordable, and extremely helpful and friendly staff! Beds are comfortable and hostel is quiet. Breakfast is great ($3) and free walking tours are available. Close to a lot of great food places and attractions. Definitely a home away from home!

The staff at Colonial were the friendly we've come across. In a quieter part of town, you'll still get a good night's sleep without being too far from the sites. We easily caught the bus around to the cable car etc. Be sure to get their breakfast, it's well worth the extra few dollars.
