For a budget location this hostel is very nice. Everything is clean and very safe. The people here are extremely friendly. The breakfast included very delicious fresh fruit. Plaza Foch is a noisy area but I found this location to be peaceful.

Excellent welcome and service (very attentive managers, speaking English). I highly recommend this hotel !!! pleasant, comfortable ** (secure, wifi, hot shower, good breakfast included), cheap price ($ 8 per night, $ 13 room only) and well located (restaurants, nightlife). I warmly thank Rodrigo, his wife and his daughter-in-law (doctor), very human and attentive, for their invaluable help (to have a medical consultation, to go to the police to file a complaint ...).

Big spacious room, hot water in the shower, nice breakfast included and great friendly price. The room was a little cold but we asked and got a heater. Rodrigo was very helpful with anything we needed, including information and Galapagos planning!

This hostel would be very calm, but the street is full with clubs, bars and other hostels. There is a nice staff. The place was clean, and breakfast was good.

Family-owned hostel - the service and accommodations were excellent. It was also a great deal for the two-bed room with a private bathroom we stayed in. We'd had a horrible experience at the Blue House Youth Hotel right next door (they'd given our reserved room away) and we checked-in to Hostal Galapagos upset, travel-worn and weary. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our stay cost half of what the Blue House would've charged us. The staff members were so friendly and warm - they treated me and my travel companion like we were family and made us very comfortable.Their included breakfast consisted of eggs, coffee, fresh fruit juice, a bowl of fruit and fresh- baked bread. It was a delicious start to our day. Unfortunately, we only stayed for two nights - staying here was one of the highlights of our Ecuador trip. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this amazing little gem.

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. Pluses It 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. Minuses Wi-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. Summary The room was good value. I would stay there again. My rating: 4/5. Location as measured with my GPS: -0.20427, -78.49073
