We stayed at Hostal Quito for the first night of our trip, left for a couple of nights to the cloud forest and then came back. We were in 306 the first night and 206 for the next five. We loved it. Great views! We had a room to ourselves and a private bathroom. Everything very clean. We found this to be more of a hotel than a hostal. Our room was warm and we had lots of Alpaca blankets on our bed. Loved those so much managed to SQUEEZE a couple into our suitcases to bring home. (Purchased at Octavolo market) We always had hot water. Breakfast was served quickly. Consisted of a large glass of fresh fruit juice, coffee, a roll with cheese and then followed with a small but adequate omelette. Staff was friendly and helpful. We have poor Spanish skills so we did use translator on computer to help us once. They were great with directions and bus transfer info to wherever we wanted to go. Walk out the main door and can go in any direction to many restaurants and stores. Very good location. Two blocks from Plaza Grande. In the heart of Old Town. Definitely recommend.
