I arrived at 2am to a friendly hostelier and a clean, cozy room. The cute couple who runs it are both very kind individuals, always quick to help you with something. The atmosphere is muy tranquilo. When I played my guitar in the dining/common room area, everybody was happy to have music while they ate or checked emails no matter what their age or where they came from. Wifi connection is strong in kitchen and dining room/common area.
They will make you eggs of your choice for breakfast, and it inlcudes bread, fresh squeezed juice, coffee, and tea. Bathroom and room were always impeccably clean. The shower takes a few (maybe 5-10) minutes to warm up and after waiting it still never gets hot, just semi-warm. I personally don't find that to be a huge set-back. They were very kind to let us keep our things there while we travelled through Ecuador. Overall, I enjoyed it very much and will choose this hostel again upon returning to Quito!
