“Just wow!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Hostel Revolution, I stayed for 3 nights, very clean, hot water for showers, internet, TV room with a large selection of movies, the beds in the dormitory are wide and strong (it does not move when you climbing in and out of bed). Good location, everything is within walking distance of the hostel. The staff is helpful, welcoming and always cheerful. I recommend Hostel Revolution to spend quality quiet time and enjoy Quito. I'll be back :)

This nice Hostel, runned by a great english-speaking, friendly and funny owner is laid a bit out of trouble, but in 10min walking distance to the historic center. Beds are really comfortable and extraordinary wide (as well it's everyday bedded by the cleaning stuff). Everything is very clean, especially the shared kitchen. Nice atmosphere with with bar and tables in the common room! Definetly worth to stay there anytime again!!!

Hostel Revolution is probably the best place in Quito for travelers who look for something personal and quiet. We stayed here for some days and had a great time. The dorm rooms are very spacious. Also, every bed has an own locker which is perfect. The kitchen is definitively the best we have seen so far during 9 months of traveling. The whole hostel is very clean and there are a lot of bathrooms. No waiting in the morning :) The WiFi is very fast and you have connection within the entire hostel. From the hostel it is only a 15 walk to the Old Town and a 20 minute walk to La Mariscal. The staff is very helpful and friendly! We hope to be back one day!

Fantastic hostel. I used this as my base while checking out surrounding towns and the Galapagos. Not too big so very easy to get to know other travellers. Probably the cleanest hostel I've stayed in in South America. Great kitchen, very well stocked with anything you could possibly need. Great friendly vibe with fantastic staff! Highly recommend. Thanks for the stay

Revolution is run by friendly and helpful staff and set just off one of Quito's main parks, making it easy to get to both old town and the Mariscal. Great fast laundry service 2 mins away too. The rooms are spacious and lots of bathrooms and areas to chill. Good kitchen with lots of food on the communal shelves when I was there and free hot drinks all day. Only downside was the pillows that were SO uncomfy, like rocks!

I stayed a couple of days in the Hostel Revolution and really enjoyed it. The owner is very helpful and eager to make you feel at home, there is a kitchen that is well equipped to prepare your own food and the rooms are simple but clean. There are hot showers as well and even a small TV/DVD room. The reception doubles as a smallish bar in the evenings, selling reasonably priced beers (there also is a happy hour where its actually cheap). Bonus points from me because they have a guitar lying around as well which I was happy to use on their rooftop terrace :) All in all a nice place to stay, not too far away from either old town or mariscal (it kind of sits pretty much halfway between both and a bit up the hill to the east). Only downpoint is the slightly dodgy location as it apparently becomes pretty unsafe in that area at night. I didn't have any problems though, but the owner's anecdotes on my night of arrival (lovely person though, very very nice) were a bit of a downer.
