“Best hostel in Quito for a great value”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This was our first place to stay on our trip and boy did it set high standards for all other hostels! The staff are unbeatable, the group events at night at fun, everything is clean, showers are hot, and breakfast is out of this world. Two weeks later, this is still the best hostel we have stayed at.

This is a awesome little hostel located in old town. Clean, awesome staff, and great breakfasts and dinners. Great to meet other travelers and have a good time. They have daily free walking tours of Quito. Do it on Monday to see the change of guards at the plaza.

Community hostel was the best hostel ever!
I ended up not being able to leave for a long time!
Staff are wicked always up for having a groovy time and have limitless knowledge of Quito.
The food is amazing. Beds are comfy. Awesome place to meet new people because of the community feel.
Location was perfect with really good transport links.
Seriously wish I oculd go back.

I stayed in Comunity Hostel, service was great and rooms too..... but the internet was terrible, when you are travelling is very important to have it, also they don't have enough bathrooms for all the clients they have and the locations looks unsafe .....any way good staff

This hostel is great, there really is a community feel with big, delicious group dinners and things like movie nights. The staff are helpful and friendly, as well as being very fun, and the walking tour is excellent. As everyone mentions, another bathroom would be good, but the ones there are are excellent and the beds are big and comfy!

The hostel was amazing including the staff :) had a great time playing games at night with everyone in the hostel, they also cooked food for everyone at night for 5$ for a good meal! if you just want to chill this is the place to go, they have a projector down stairs for movies witch is a good thing if you just wanna do nothing, once in a wile it's nice AND if you wanna have drinks and/or go out you can have some beers and wine upstairs play some games and go out with some staff from the hostel. staff was so helpful and nice. free walking tour as well. loved this place..... ohhhhh ya beds are soooo comfy and breakfast is great as well

When the taxi dropped me off in front of the hostel, I was a little worried. It was market day and there was garbage everywhere. But it only took 5 minutes to figure out that this is the best hostel in Quito. The staff is great, the food is amazing, bathrooms are great, and the private queen bed has comfy fitted sheets! The location is better than it looks from the window. It is on the outer edge of the historic center, and you can walk to any of the plazas and La Ronda! Also make sure to do the walking tour, Ovi does an amazing job and he is a great basketball player too!
