Socially this place is great, excellent roof terrace where you can get wifi and I found the set up really easy to meet other travellers and hang out with them, breakfasts were fine, dinners nice, staff helpful. Travel agent in the building is useful, I found the bedrooms fine, and the other areas of the hostel are very lovely with plants everywhere. The bathrooms are a bit rubbish, with way too few and not particularly nice. Queues in the morning and they try and clean them in the busiest periods too and then send you to the even worse ones when doing so. Otherwise recommend this hostel.
- 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
