Reviewed 12 September 2009

Hostal Belmont is well-located - a short walk to Old Town, and a cheap US$1+ taxi ride to new Town. It is in the same area as Secret Garden. There's a travel agency called Capedm on the same street that can book tours in Ecuador and give travel advice. Nearby eating options include a chifa, some small local eateries and a huge market with many stalls serving local menus.

The hostal has small but clean rooms (but no dorm beds). Very basic. Some come with ensuite bathrooms, others with shared bathrooms. Hot water is a hit and miss. All rooms cost US$6 per person. There's a common room with a selection of movies on DVD. The WiFi is sketchy, but at least it works and it's free. There is a terrace on the highest floor which offers good views of Quito and the basilica. There's also a small kitchenette and a washing machine for guest's use (use of the washing machine is FOC if you stay 3 nights or more.)

What won us over were the friendly and helpful staff who ran the place. The Ecuadorian couple were always ready to dish out travel and safety advice at their own initiative. The man walks with a limp but was always ready and willing to help us with anything. These good, kind people will be what we remember most dearly about our short stay in Quito.
