We stayed here due to its high acclaim on multiple websites. We found the atmosphere to be friendly, the food awesome, the services fine, and the location great. The room itself was not particularly clean and the noise caused by people coming and going was a negative. The hot water was inconsistent and be aware that they charge for all (delicious) meals. Really good for single travelers since the roof top deck lends itself to meeting people. The staff all spoke English and we felt secure. If you don't like hippies, this not the place for you.

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
