We stayed at Hostal La Posada at the start of Semana Santa. First time in Ecuador and first time in a hostel sharing a room with friends. My friend arranged the entire trip and also for Jaime (the manager) to pick us up at the airport (for an additional charge). We headed straight to the hostel then to our huge room. We had 4 beds and our own bathroom and shower. The room also had a small balcony and awesome views. There is hot water, wifi, a rooftop patio, kitchen and a large common area. Jaime is very knowledgeable about Quito and very helpful. It is maybe 50 feet from La Ronda.
Jaime and Miguel were very accommodating on our way back from Montanita when our 10-hour bus arrived at 4am. The hostel was completely booked for Semana Santa but Miguel allowed us to stay in the common area until the morning when things opened up. Jaime also arranged for a taxi to take us back to the airport. A very nice hostel and reasonably priced.
