Aleida was recommended to me by a friend. I really didn't know what to expect.
i wrote an email to reserve and I got this nice response from the owner. she didn't have a single room so she offered me the administrations room for the first night. she organized a pickup at the airport and she was waiting for me at the door when I arrived.
Elena, the owner, is super great. it's like having a family member taking care of you. she helps you with anything she can,
The hostel is super clean. I had a private room ( she gave me the "brides room") with bathroom. the view was great, no annoying noises at night. great bed to sleep on. and a small television. there is a central living room that is great if you just want to read a book or watch some tv. there is also a book exchange and the have this cute garden where you can enjoy the sun in the morning.
the staff is super nice as well. they were like my sisters.
the location of the hotel is very central. 2 blocks from one of the main bus lines that take you anywhere in quito and 5 blocks away from fosh plaza( bars and club district)
the breakfast is simple but you can ask for more. ( no charge). I love coffee and there was always coffee. if not Elena made it with lots of love.
in Aleida you can also cook your own food. the supermarket is at 5 min walking from the hotel. I cooked there every day and I even shared it with Elena.
bottom line: If you want a small clean place to stay where the people treat you like people, Aleida Hostel is the place to go.
