“A very good place to stay if you're on a budget”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Travellers Inn is safe place to stay, close to the Mariscal but an a quiet street - no noise at all! The hostal is scrupulously clean, most of the staff speaks English and everyone is very helpful and accommodating; they arranged a pick up from the airport and the driver was there, even tough he had to wait a long time at night (my flight was delayed). The breakfast is good; it can be quite cool in Quito at night, but I had three blankets on my bed - more than was needed. The common area allows to meet other people and share experiences over a beer or a glass of wine.
I went to a tour from Quito to Otavalo and Cotacachi with Daniel - it was pleasant and interesting; I especially enjoyed a visit in the workshop making indigenous instruments; a well known indigenous group performed for us.
Overall, it was a good experience, and I plan to stay there again before my flight back from Quito.

It was our final stay in Ecuador and we stayed here in total for four nights. Both times we stayed in room 301 which is very large, two rooms, three beds and it has a big balcony. Good bathroom and nice beds. The wifi is also good and the breakfast is ok. We paid $40,- a day. Also the staff is very nice.
Location is great, nice restaurants in the neighbourhood and in walking distance from the Mariscal party scene. Taxi to the old town is around $2 - $3,- and to the airport $5,-. It can take a while because the traffic is horrible in Quito.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our return to Quito after staying in the Old town and had a great time. Its a nice area, well secured and run by a very friendly family who speak very good english and are helpul with our travellers spanish. The rooms are nice and the cheaper shared bathroom rooms at the back are great for the price and well maintained / cleaned. Great breakfast and staff are super helpful. Bit quiet and not a great place to meet people, but a very nice and friendly hostel all the same

Overall, my stay at Traveller's Inn was decent. The location is good, especially for those who don't want to be in the Mariscal (entertainment/nightlife) area of Quito, though it is less than a ten minute walk. The place is locked down like a fortress, so if you worry about safety, then this is a good place to consider. It was quiet at night for me, so I was able to sleep well.

The owners and the door staff were professional and helpful. However, the breakfast and room cleaning staff were poor at best. They were unfriendly in general and condescending towards many foreigners. I am traveling from the U.S. and though I am not fluent in Spanish, but I understand it and speak it reasonably well since I had been in Ecuador and Peru for two months before my stay here. The breakfast staff would pretend that they didn't understand me and bring me something other than I had asked because they assumed that I didn't understand what I said and would get upset when I politely just repeated the same request in the same exact way I said the first time in Spanish (and of course I would then receive exactly what I asked for). So, in sum, they were condescending if they thought you didn't speak or understand Spanish, and then still were when they found out you did. Unfortunately, I was there for several days, so this got very irksome.

On the other hand, the rooms and facilities were very clean, and there was always hot water. Some days I had problems with internet connection, but overall the connection was ok.

In terms of pricing, I think the rooms were definitely too expensive for what you were getting. I had a TINY room with a shared bathroom for $13.44 (my choice because it was less than half the price of a room with one's own bathroom). Having been in Quito for over a month and having done some traveling throughout Ecuador and Peru, these rooms were very overpriced. I paid $12 a night for a double bed and private bathroom in another hostel in Quito.

Were here now, with about a week to play in quito, and it's lovely. Our room is clean, with nice linens, a garden space and nice communal space. The breakfasts have been hearty, delicious. Its a good enough neighborhood, and for the rate, $38 ensuite, it's very nice. The owners' English. Is good, and with a longer stay there's airport pickup, which worked out nicely for us.

Room Tip: It's a great hostel.

We spent four nights in total there in between our several trips to the jungle of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. It was a nice and secure place to relax. Rooms were large and clean and Laundry service was incredible fast! Staff and especially the owner Carlos were very friendly and helpful!

During our recent vacation in Ecuador my brother and I stayed twice in February 2012 for a total of 4 nights. I have nothing but praise for the staff. From the free airport pickup by Daniel to the friendliness and invaluable assistance in organizing travel and tourism plans, (Carlos) to the friendly service during breakfast, everyone was exceptionally friendly. The hotel is conveniently located close to town and the airport. Free internet allowed us to stay in touch and plan our trips.
In fact, I am coming back to Ecuador this summer and have no need to look for a hotel in Quito. I already have reservations at the Travellers Inn
