“Dangerous hostal”
Reviewed June 22, 2008

One night I wasn´t able to get into de Hostal because there were 3 guys hardly drogged in the entrance, blocking all access. I made many phone calls to the hostal, but no one answered, so I had to go to sleep in other hotel!
It was 10:00 p.m.
Next day Luis try to charge me the night I was out!
Very, very dangerous location, bad manners, low security.

I walked in off the street after a disapointing experience at a neighboring hotel, and I'm so glad I did!

Luis was exceptionally helpful. Staff speaks little or no English, but always found a way to communicate their gracious hospitality.

Good bedding (3 blankets!). Excellent security. Free w-fi. Delicious free breakfast (eggs cooked to order & REAL coffee). Single room with private bath only $23 including taxes. Loved the location, too. And exceptional find!

  • Liked — price/value relationship!
  • Disliked — wish it was heated, but nothing at this price in Quito seems to be.
