Excellent accueil et services. Bienveillant++ Parle Anglais Excellent accueil et service (responsables très attentifs, parlant anglais). Je recommande vivement cet hôtel !!! agréable, confortable** (sécurisé, wifi, douche chaude, bon petit déjeuner inclus), pas cher (8$ la nuit, 13$ la chambre seul) et bien situé (restaurants, vie nocturne). Je remercie chaleureusement Rodrigo, sa femme et sa belle-fille (médecin), très humains et attentionnés, pour leur aide précieuse (avoir une consultation médicale, se rendre à la police pour porter plainte…).

Great Hostel! So happy to have met Rodrigo and family! They took very good care of me answering all my questions and giving me directions to some interesting markets. My room was very clean, comfortable and quiet with a hot shower. Can’t say enough about the the the nice people who run the place. Oh, and as far as the location goes it is right in the central area a short walk away from a wide variety of venues.

Excellent Service Although the place is not fancy, it fulfills all the needs of a traveler. The owners go out of their way to help with advice and directions to other areas of the city and/or the country.Definitely good value for the money.Gracias!

Easy going, basic hostel. Family atmosphere. Fast Wi-Fi. Good value. I stayed here for 3 nights during my solo bicycle tour through Colombia and Ecuador. I speak Spanish and was therefore able to communicate well with my hosts. (The adult daughter Viviana spoke English).This hostal was next to the Blue House, which had received good reviews and which I intended visiting. I decided to visit this one first. I liked the family (Luz, Carlos and Viviana) and they offered me a spacious private room (#2) with private bathroom and 2 beds for $13. Normal price was $15. This included a hot breakfast. This price was about half the price at the Blue House and at other similar hostals in Quito. I ended up staying 3 nights (my entire stay in Quito). I enjoyed my stay. PlusesIt was peaceful and the family were easy-going. They had a large storeroom for keeping my bike and other guests’ luggage while away on tour. The Wi-Fi was fast even at night – as fast as mine in Seattle. The free breakfast consisted of instant coffee with water or warm milk, plus hot cocoa if desired, banana, eggs to order, several slices of toast, and a fruit juice. Quite good. My on-demand hot shower was hot, provided I kept the flow to a minimum. A soap dispenser was provided. My bed had 4 soft pillows and several thick blankets. There were a half dozen hooks for hanging my clothes, plus extra shelf space. 500 m to the NE was a SuperMaxi supermarket (open 09h30-20h00 daily) which had a good selection. Viviana spoke English, and was helpful with a free city map, on which she marked various places of interest. She took the time to print out the names of each place, which was appreciated. The area seemed safe. I saw no suspicious-looking characters. There were many other hostals in the area.MinusesWi-Fi signal was strong in the dining room, but weaker in my room, where the internet was slower. I lacked a desk in my room, so I used my laptop in the during room. Not as convenient, but it had the plus of ensuring that I socialized more with guests. This I enjoyed. As a special concession, I was allowed to hand-wash my clothes in a bucket and hang these on a line out back. This I prefer to do. Normally, they prefer folk to have someone do this, for a small fee, using washers and driers. I prefer not to waste electricity and water on my few cycling clothes.Breakfast hours were 08h30-10h30 (-0930 on Sundays). Rather late for a cyclist like me, who likes to be on the road by 06h00- 06h30. The hostal was located about 4 km NE of the Old City, which may not be convenient for some folk. I was fine with this, as I had my bike, and there were bike lanes on several main roads.SummaryThe room was good value. I would stay there again.My rating: 4/5. Location as measured with my GPS: -0.20427, -78.49073

Basic hostel, mixed service We arrived to the hostel in the evening after returning from the Galapagos very tired. I had corresponded directly with the hostel to arrange our reservation, and had a confirmation email. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation on the calendar and until I could locate the confirmation the staff were not especially welcoming of us as guests. The room we booked was not available, though they did find another option for us for the night. There was plenty of hot water and the beds were comfortable. We were asked to purchase bottled water as the tap is not potable and the hostel doesn’t offer filtered water. We were given good tips on restaurants nearby by the gentleman.The breakfast the next morning was basic and minimal, not to the description on the website. When we asked for seconds for an item we were told there would be an additional charge. The way it was presented really put a sour note on us, especially since not everyone in the family opted to have breakfast. I was really hoping for a better experience as friends of ours recommended this place.
