Aside from day trips to Cotopaxi, Pichincha, Otavalo or Old Town, Quito is not a city where I would spend too much time. But, If I ever go back I will absolutely stay at the secret garden. The hostel was social, enjoyable, clean, had good food and the VIEW IS AMAZING! The reception and restaraunt/bar is located on the 5th floor (narrow staircase, be careful) and has the most magnificent views of Quito, an aesthetically beautiful city. The prices are reasonable and staff is friendly enough. The Tour coordinator on the ground floor is really helpful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Secret Garden Quito is a friendly Australian/Ecuadorian/French family run hostel conveniently located in a quiet, authentic cobble-stone street in central Quito. Our 'barrio', or neighbourhood, is one of the few remaining Colonial districts and even our building is protected by a United Nations World Heritage listing. With a big improvement in security in the Old Town in recent years, plus 24 hour police patrols, our neighbourhood now enjoys a level of safety and security equal to (or often better than!!) most international capital cities.But there's more!!Our beautifully restored colonial building features a rooftop terrace/restaurant/bar with breathtaking views of the historical Old Town. Feel free to browse our hostal book exchange, chat with our friendly Ecuadorian and foreign staff, check your email (free use of computer and free Wifi), or just relax listening to any of our wide selection of music. ... more less
