This is a hostel located on Los Rios near Calle Caldas. This is a very small hostel with 9 rooms which are over three floors. There isn't an elevator so keep that in mind. The room I had was a single with exactly that a single that had a shared bathroom next door to my room. The rooms are no-frills yet forward, clean with a small dresser & mirror, a bedside table & light. There isn't any A/C or Heater as this is Quito. It covered what I needed at quite a reasonable price. The breakfast is offered at $2.00 USD. The rooftop has great views of the city especially the lights of the rolling hills at night. The hostel sits on a top street in the neighborhood so by foot a little uphill walking will be necessary. Old town is 1Km away so within walking distance. One might consider a cab at night in this neighborhood It's a family run hostel that has a pool table in the lobby, television with cold drinks for sale. The staff was quite friendly the Manager 'Xavier' was happy to assist me in confirming my booking of my flight to Colombia over the phone. They can assist in booking tours as well. I was sent to this hostel after the booking I made at the Colonial House which could take me just 5 nights during the week I was in Quito. Keep in mind that the lobby does close at 10PM (22:00hr) which means so does the rooftop terrace in which you're free to store any perishables in the refrigerator or cook a meal on the terrace.
