We were shown our room and it was huge!!! We had a giant comfortable bed and pillows and so much space we could have swung several cats tied together end to end and still had room to spare. Everything is immaculately clean and top end furnishings more in like being at home. It's very friendly with great meals if you want to eat in and a big table everyone eats around and shares travel tips and stories. Staff are friendly and helpful and mainly travelers themselves... All have perfect English.
The very best bit about the hostal though is the free walking tour. Ovi gives a funny, factual and diverse tour covering history, food, and crafts. You visit the beautiful buildings, the lively markets, a trafitional Quito sweet shop, tour the woodwork shop of a master sculptor and get a description and tasting of yummy yummy fine chocolate. A brilliant intro to the city.
