Liked: Great location, good warm showers, comfortable beds and good common areas. A great atmosphere - it is chilled but still has a social vibe and partying on weekends. I would still recommend despite the below negative comments, but maybe for travellers more organised than me!

Disliked: I had a mixed experience at this hostel. The hostel itself was great. Great atmosphere, lovely people staying there and really great location. The staff were quite helpful, until I asked for another night's stay. The woman at the desk asked me to wait 10 minutes while she checked availability. After 10 minutes standing waiting I asked again and she said there was no room, although I know she hadn't checked anything further. Anyway, I was happy to move as there was no room. BUT the next day I spoke with people staying there and they said there were heaps of beds free in their room. This seems very strange and I spoke to a number if other people who had the same experience as me! I guess make sure you book online for the number of nights you really need to stay and hope your plans don't change! Also, the fridge is apparently for "leftovers only" which means no milk or fresh stuff to cook with. Careful it WILL get thrown out.

Liked: Awesome locations, great tips from the staff. The bar area and living room is nice to hang out! Really close to perfection :)

Disliked: It would be great of there was breakfast to start the day. The room I was in is really bright early in the morning. That's the only two things...

Liked: Vibes is a great chill out hostel with a great "vibe" and all of the other offerings one would want in a hostel! Spacious rooms/comfortable beds, a plentitude of bathrooms, 2 common areas to relax and hang out, one including a game room and bar! The offerings of Wednesday night ladies drink free and a free "welcome drink" only add to the greatness of the hostel! Santiago the owner/bartender is awesome and will help you with anything you need! Very knowledgeable about the area/how to maximize your time in Quito. Their Mariscal location is great... immersed in the nightlife of the area with lots of restaurants/bars to choose from. Would definitely return to this hostel again!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: The location is perfect. Just 1 min walk from ecovia station. Very safe area.

Disliked: The bathroom wasn't really good. Not really hot shower I had during my stay and it's quite difficult to take a shower as bathroom was unisex and no space to take of your clothes and leave them and toilet was in the same room, which means you meet an awkward stuation. For this, I change the hostel because I really couldn't relax at this place.

Liked: The location is great, it's about a 1 minute walk from the Ecovia Station named Manuel Canzares which was very handy if you are tired of walking. The facilities are good, they have two tv's with cable to watch any show in English which can be nice if you're travelling a lot. The beds were comfortable and the service from the likes of Santiago was very helpful!

Disliked: Maybe they could arrange more to do during the off peak nights like Mondays. It sounds like from the experience of other stayers that the weekends there are a lot of fun but nothing really went on during the week which was a shame, I'd definitely like to re-visit on a weekend though!

Liked: Great atmosphere, three lounge areas, clean rooms and always a nice sized group of people to hang out and drink with at night. Very communal for a solo traveler and easy to make friends. The owner is such a nice guy and very helpful. BEST place to stay in Quito. Right near the clubs/restaurant district and a short 25 cent bus ride to old town. It's the best hostel in the area, it's the place to be. One of my favorite hostels in all of south and central america! AND ladies night wednesdays free drinks for girls :)

Disliked: Nothing because it's amazing
