10/10 Exceptional

Central location, makes it easy to go to Cotopaxi
It has a nice vibe. I'd go there again. Restaurant and bar are particularly nice. Avocado toast for breakfast!! Great to have a family room available. Staff and volunteers were so helpful. The free walking tour was informative and enjoyable. Laundry service available. Staying the night before taking their shuttle to sister property at Cotopaxi is a particularly good idea.

8/10 Very good

good stay
lots of activities and easy to meet people. Location is good. The hostel sometime charge more for taxi compare to if you call yourself or use uber. For example, uber from airport to hostel is about $25 but the hostel will charge $28. However when I transfer from hostel to airport, I paid $20. the food is good @ the hostel but you probably can find cheaper and different type of food elsewhere. the staff is very responsive. It's fairly noisy at night till around 11 pm or so. Overall, it is a good stay.

2/10 Poor

The only reason that i booked a room at that hostel its because my bus for my jungle trip was departure-arrival there. The guys at the reception didnt want to help me with taxi, he just tell me walk at the corner at street there should be one ( there were none...and i was waiting in the street at 23:45 in a location not that safe) and the wifi didnt works in the room , only in common area... So its a epic fail!!!

I liked the view in the rooftop, and the prices at the restaurant were half percet less as customer but in the rooms they didn't have heater, I got frozen! and they didn't have parking. So in the night i couldn't sleep well because i was checking everytime my car was ok. I had to look for another place to kept in Quito another day. The stuff was friendy but there were problems with communication before my check-in.

A wonderful and beautifully unique spot with a great community. The rooftop is a perfect place to hang out and enjoy the views of the city. Would absolutely stay again when in Quito.
