Two guest kitchen, computer room(no need to visit those internet cafes), a superb view at 7 $ for dorm or 15 for double room(both with shared bathroom) is great. Also a rather calm hostal in comparison to the two in which I stayed in Mariscal

This hostel was very organized. You can tell that someone who backpacked owns this hostel. Everything is well thought out and quiet comfortable. It's also very clean. The staff was extremely helpful too. We really did like it and would recommend it.
We only had one issue and it wasn't even with the hostel. It was with a man from Canada that thought because he had been going there for the past four years he had a right to tell you to get out of the TV room or to keep quiet (even when we weren't being loud). He also yelled at people to wash their dishes and told them they couldn't use the kitchen anymore. Just very bossy. We would say that if you come across this type of attitude bring it up to the attention of the owner.

Casa Bambu has one of the nicest and organized hostel kitchens I've seen, with assigned spaces in the cupboards and shelves in the refrigerators, of which there are 3 (or 4?). There are also 2 kitchens! one on the first floor and one on the second, and plenty of cooking gear. Yes, I'm kinda obsessed with kitchens in hostels, having experienced ones in which theft is rampant and pots, pans and utensils are limited or just plain small and unusable for more than 1 or 2 people at a time.

Aside from the kitchen, Casa Bambu has other virtues. The terrace is huge, with awesome views of Quito. The staff is super friendly, helpful, and keeps the place clean. For its home-like atmosphere, it's a particularly good option for travelers with extended stays in Quito. The only drawback is the sketchiness of the street come nightfall. Take a taxi at night.

The steep climb is rewarded by the laid back atmosphere, nice breakfast choice and view from the terrace. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and spaks reasonable english. Good position for the 'new' city with nice restaurants at 10-minute-walk radius, transport connection is ok but taxis are the best option after dark.

We stayed here three times while traveling over Ecuador. The first time we had a room upstairs - nice and spacious with a comfortable bed. The shared bathroom on the floor was kept clean and the kitchen is the best. Each room has a designated shelf in the fridge as well as a lockers for food storage. Never had seen this before in Ecuador. Everyone here really enjoyed cooking. The roof terrace is amazing: comfortable seating areas and a great view. They also have breakfast service, which we never tried since we had our own stuff, but it always looked great and the orices were ok. The second and third time we stayed downstairs and were not so enthusiastic. Our room was next to the pissoir (why would that be in a hallway?) and the room was not as nice as well as the mattress, which was worn out. But: We would always come back to Casa Hood. Prices are great, the staff is super friendly they have 4 computers as well as a TV room and you cant beat the view!

casa bambu - clean, comfortable with great facilities; 2 kitchens, 4 computers, pool table, pingpong and a terrace with a beautiful view over quito. the only problem is the hill to get to the hostel, but at least it's good exercise :-)

At first we did not go to Casa Bambu, because there was no foto of the rooms and we were afraid, that it might not be enough comfortable for us (i'm a mother that came to visit my travelling daughter with her little sister). After we left, Maya and her boyfriend decieded to check Casa Bambu because they were looking for a place with a kitchen for the guests. They really loved the place and the roof with the hammoks and the great view. I would have loved it too!!! Next time!
Lonly Planet sissapointed us a lot, but this time they they were very helpful!
