Could not recommend enough. We had a fantastic stay in Quito at the community hostel. Staff are so helpful. Food is sooo good. Good location. They also have a travel agent downstairs which can organise almost anything for you. Perfect

Stayed at this hostel for two nights. It is a really well run machine with friendly helpful staff and heaps on offer. Events every night and multiple tours which can also make for a nice way to meet others travelling. All the facilities you would expect are top notch, large living areas, good wifi, plenty of showers and bathrooms. The... More

I was recommended this hostel by a friend and was not disappointed. The atmosphere is great for meeting people, the whole place is clean with a luxurious bathroom and super comfy beds. but the best thing was the food - the incredible breakfasts and dinners that you eat at a long table with other guests - the most well-presented, healthy...

It made us feel very welcome and we knew we would enjoy our stay. We stayed an extra two nights mainly bc it was a great place to... More

I really enjoyed staying there. They have a lot of excellent tours around Quito and interactive events. Great location! The bed is comfortable, restrooms are big and also comfortable. Nothing to worry about when it comes to the facilities. When I go back to Quito, I will stay there again. A special thanks to Eduardo, Emily, Isaac and Alex! They... More

Really nice location, comfy beds, delicious food and friendly atmosphere. When we arrived I felt part of the family here Also they are great at organising trips to the Amazon. We paid way less through community than through other agencies we found in Quito.

This was a great hostel, well-located near El Centro in Quito. The dorms were clean and quiet. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts were tasty (although I preferred going to the market across the street). The two things I would have liked were the option of gender-specific dorm rooms and a rooftop bar.

Really friendly staff, they all speak amazing English. Helped us out massively when we couldn't decide on what to do. They organise it all for you so no need to stress. Would recommend to anyone visiting Quito and wanting to go on a trip away such as to the Amazon (definitely go).

This hostal is just awesome! The beds are big and new, the dorms a spacious and bright thanks to much daylight and the bathrooms where the biggest and most luxurious ones that I have seen in hostals so far! On top of that, the Community Hostal really focuses on the community aspect by offering delicious breakfast for 3$ and great... More

I arrived in the late afternoon without a reservation and was able to get a open bed for $10. My top bunk bed and a drawer underneath with a room for a lock. The room was well-ventilated. The kitchen is excellent, everything one would need with the exception of an oven. The sink had a couple dirty dishes in it... More
