“A wonderful find in Quito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2013

Casapaxi is not just a room for the night-it is your private house! There is a wonderful sunken living room, dining room, kitchen for guest's use and outdoor patio overlooking the city.
The owner Luigina has been running this house for over 20 years & she is an exceptional host, very knowledgeable about Quito & Ecuador. She has a maid come in daily who will make your bed, iron towels(!) and do a quite thorough clean. I speak Spanish so it was easy to ask people which of the nearby buses to take to the various areas and the taxis are very inexpensive so it is very easy to get around. The location is just above the popular Mariscal region and is extremely quiet. There is no Wi-Fi but there are 2 places a block away that charge .75 cents per hour (!) so that was not a hardship.
It is one of the reviews one almost does not want to write so that there will be availability for my next stay!

This was the hostel with the absolute best cost-performance ratio during our 6 weeks in Peru and Equador! We had the "Suite garden view" which actually did not only have garden view but our own big private garden including hammock! The room was huge, including a very clean private bath, a couch and TV and one of the fully equiped kitchens is also only used by this room.
Service there is excelent. Our very symphatic host drove us several times with her car to the bus stop (to go to mitad del mundo) or to the gondola station "teleferico". This was included in the service.
Location is not in the heart of the city, but there are very regular busses to and from the city in just 2 min walking distance ... and we prefered a very quiete and well maintained location to beeing in the noisy central with all night disco next to our room ...

Room Tip: Go for the "Suite garden view" if available - its worth the few $ more! If occupied, the o...

We have stayed here every time we come through Quito, now about 7 or so times over the past 7 years. This is an amazing price for a clean safe place in Quito. The neighborhood is not dangerous (surprised by the other review) but is a little walk down the hill to get to town. It's not horribly far, but if you want to be "in the middle of things" this is not the place for you. The owner is wonderful, she will help you in any way possible!

our recent stay at casapaxi in quito was wonderful. the hostal is owned by the most friendly and helpful woman who really takes care of her guests. it is also in a great location; not sure what the situation was with the other reviewer as it was easy to get to old town via the trole. we have no trouble with walking to reach buses and public transport and were fine with the downhill walk to reach the closest trole stop and then the quick ride into old town. we stayed in the suite and felt like we had our own little home-away-from-home and loved the kitchen. we cooked every night after shopping at a supermarket down the main road (that is a tough hill to walk, but was good for exercise!). we prefer to stay outside of the busy city center and found this the perfect spot for our time in quito! we just spent two months in Latin America and this was the best and most comfortable place we stayed during the entire trip.

The hostel is not close to anything. You have to take 2 or 3 busses to get to old town. It is over an hour from either of the main bus stations as you have to change buses 3 times. The area is so unsafe, you can not go to t he corner store after dark. The owner is very nice and friendly. The kitchen does not have hot water. No wi-fi

We loved this quiet, safe place, with nice and clean rooms and ducks in the garden. It is owned by an Italian lady, who is very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for the price.
