"The facility is nice and new especially the kitchen. I felt very secure, in order to enter the hostel you need to be buzzed in via camera. Relaxed atmosphere."

Liked: The facility is nice and new especially the kitchen. I felt very secure, in order to enter the hostel you need to be buzzed in via camera. Relaxed atmosphere.

Disliked: Staff was friendly, but you had to go up to them to get information, and it was kind of unclear who actually worked there because no one really introduced themselves, but once you figured it out they were great and helpful.

Liked: Good location to get to La Rhonda in old town, and right near all transport links if you want to visit new town, comfy large beds, dorm with 4 beds is a bigger room than the dorm with 6 beds, strangely enough! Breakfast is gorg!! Good sized bathroom, staff couldn't do enough! Good common rooms!

Disliked: Couple of the girl staff, (I think volunteers) were really loud and made it a little awkward for the guests one day and night,

Liked: Great atmosphere and very clean facilities. The place feels new.

Disliked: The WiFi was particularly slow and would not work at all at times. There are also only 2 bathrooms for the entire hostal. This can be a problem in the mornings and at night.

Liked: a great hostel, sorry i only had one night to spend there. really nice kitchen, good breakfast (costs extra), friendly and helpful staff, free coffee (with milk!), fairly social as lots of people sit around the big table by the kitchen. the old town area is nice, full of beautiful churches. did not go on the free walking tour but it's a nice touch.

Disliked: the neighborhood shuts down really early - if you want nightlife stay in new town. also as previously said longish bathroom lines in the morning, but take a shower at night and you'll be fine!

Liked: There are 2 community areas: huge dining table and comfy living room downstairs. This made it easy to meet people and share travel stories / tips. The staff cooks great breakfast and dinner. But there is a second kitchen if you prefer to cook yourself. I really appreciated the size of the dorms & beds. Such a comfy sleep! Stay here if you appreciate a laid back quiet atmosphere.

Disliked: They know it's a problem but there are only 2 bathrooms so you may be waiting a bit at peaks times in the AM & PM.

Liked: The atmosphere at this hostel is second to none -it was one of my all time best experiences. First, the environment created by the staff was just magnificent. They have daily activities provided by the staff that promotes an environment for everyone to get to know each other. Second, the location is just great. Third, it is very very clean at all times of the day. Fourt, the beds and rooms are very nice, comfortable beds, and clean. Fifth, the amount of volunteers at the hostel provide for a great environment. Daily breakfast for $2.50 (changes daily, but primarily fruite and some type of bread), really good dinner for $5. Also, we got to hang out with the owner, and even went out for dinner with him as well. Without hessitation I would stay here again. Also, there was a person that said this place was better than the other hostel i was considering to stay at -Vibes. He claims the atmosphere was a factor that made him try a new hostel and move from Vibes into this hostel. Hope this review helps.

Disliked: There was only one downside to my stay -there are only two bathrooms. Thus my overall rating went from a perfect 10 to a 9.5. I suggested they put up a board to sign up for bathroom showers ahead of time, so that we can all plan accordingly. I think this could help out a lot.

Liked: Great atmosphere, staff very helpful and nice, beds are spacious, comfortable and have very good matresses. Good lockers attached to the beds. Thanks so much to Lauren, Ovidio, Soledad, Andres and all the staff

Disliked: The only thing was the hot water, which goes on and off almost all the time. That was a minor problem though, since everything else was great at the hostel.

Liked: Super clean, staff were nice and dorm beds were super comfy. Not a bad spot either as you can walk around some of the stuff in Quito pretty easily (daytime only, of course).

Disliked: They only have two bathrooms for 24 people which is a total deal breaker. You always had to wait and on the rare occasions I didn't, I felt like I'd won the lottery. You also then resort to calling out towards your dorm going "I'm done if anyone wants in". It's such a major flaw in an otherwise great place.

Liked: Best hostel I have been to by far! Amazing staff, great food and wonderful facilities. The kitchens are huge and well-equipped, the hostel is really really clean and the beds are super comfortable. If you want a quiet night in, there are great common areas and movies. If you want a crazy night out, just ask Marco and Karla where the party is!
