More of a guesthouse then a hostel, I stayed here for 3 weeks while going to school and felt right at home the whole time. It's out of the main tourist area, in a safe family neighbourhood but only a 10 min bus ride to Mariscal Sucre and 15-20 mins to the historic area of Quito. The house is beautiful, well maintained and the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, Rosario comes in for 4 hours each day (except Sundays) and makes sure everything is spotless. One morning, I dropped a tube of chap stick and it rolled under the bed where I couldn't reach it so I figured it was gone, but when I came home from school, it was on my night stand, lol. The kitchen is well equipped, the patio is beautiful with a great view of Quito and Cotacachi volcano on clear days. Lugiania gives you a lot of info on the area and how to get around. The area was safe enough that I would walk the 6 blocks from another students residence at 11:00 at night and not feel nervous (as I said, it's a family neighbourhood). There's lots of shops and restaurants in the immediate area. The only downside is there's no internet connection but there are 3 internet places within a 2 block area that charge about 1 cent/min. Lugiania was working on getting wifi at the time I was there.
