Community Hostel is a great, fun place to stay. Great pros: You're not far from the historical center, they offer breakfast and dinner at good prices ($3 and $5 respectively. The breakfast is the most worth it meal you'll have), they run fun events every day, there's a craft brewery that has great beer on tap, the showers are phenomenal.... More

Went on a couple of good tours - both arranged via hostel. $5 dinner/$3 breakfast was good value, staff on front desk were helpful and friendly. Reasonable location near old town with useful airport pick up. Walking tour was worth it to get bearings and Quilotola tour on a Sunday was interesting. Atmosphere ok, would recommend 4 day stay max... More

I stayed here 4 nights. Staff were wonderful and very helpful. They have an on site chef so the food is delicious. Facilities are clean and location is close to old town. I took the walking tour, middle of the world tour, and the food tour. The walking tour was a good introduction to the city and covered the history... More

Community Hostel is a wonderful place. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Our pickup from the hotel by Omar went as smoothly as it could be. Breakfast for $3 comprised a savory veggie crepe topped by a fried egg and served with a bowl of fresh cut fruit and yogurt. Very clean, comfortable bed, large and accommodating bathroom. Conveniently... More

A fun, friendly hostel very well located in Quito old town. (Close to big bus stop and central market) Beds are comfy, good showers, one of the cleanest hosts I've stayed in. Staff are friendly and helpful, whether it's taking you on a bar crawl or helping you cut a padlock open. Darwin and the other chefs cook excellent breakfast... More
