The hostel was pretty basic, but we had all that we needed - private double room with en-suite shower room, basic breakfast included in the room price, free internet access, and good, cheap laundry service.

The staff seemed pleasant and helpful enough.

Very good location for bars, restaurants and other tourist "needs" such as convenience stores and second hand book shops. However, the noise from the street outside was quite loud at night. Not so bad that it prevented us from getting a good night's sleep, though.

In May, I went to visit Quito, and was going to stay at this horrible place for a week but decided to leave after one night. The description on the internet is very deciving. There is no telephone in the rooms. They mention cable t.v., but there is only one t.v. in a gathering room, so be prepared to fight for the remote with whoever happens to be there. Even the restaurant is out of service. The staff is umfreandly and unprofessional, and this includes the owner. When I arrived, I asked the guy at the desk for information about places I wanted to visit, and he did not know much about anything. Later that day, I happened to come across the "owner" by the front entrance. In a nasty tone, she asked "Can I help you" and when I told her that I had just arrived that day, she just walked away and could not even say welcome. For the same price, I stayed at the Windsor right on Amazonas Avenue and had a great experience with them.

In an excellent and quiet neighborhood, this hotel, once a private mansion, offers very clean and comfortable accommodations for a very reasonable cost. The common rooms on the first floor are large and inviting and very clean, a great blessing in Quito, and offer satellite television, free access to high speed internet service, and a dining area in which you may host visitors. The house has a private enclosed garden, as well. The kitchen offers snack and light dining service for moderate cost in the afternoon and evening, and you can buy bottled water, beer, etc. cheaply on site. There is an inexpensive laundry two doors down, as well. The staff is fabulous and helpful. We loved this place so much we used it as the anchor site for our explorations to the Galapagos and into the Andes, coming back to continue to explore colonial Quito between trips outside the city. Would recommend to anyone and will come back.

Service is terrible at this hostel. There is a lot of noise at night (not in the street but inside the same hostel). Rooms have bare walls and you have to wait ages for hot water. The worst thing about it is that the staff is really unfriendly, if you complain they won't care. I'm from Ecuador and I've been to incredible places that cost half of what you pay here.
