It is the first place my boyfriend and i stayed for 2 nights arriving in Quito and we came back at the end of our trip for 3 nights. We couldn't have picked a better place to start our journey. Elena welcomed us as if we were family and that was warm and reassuring. The breakfast tasted very good. Elena... More

Elana, the owner, is definitely the main reason this Hostel gets such good ratings. She is a warm and wonderful person and works very hard to make sure your stay is comfortable. That said, I found our room (number 13) to be very average. It was small, the bathroom was so cramped that the toilet was almost directly under the... More

My wife and I stayed here on 2 occasions over a one week span. Both times were amazing. Elena, the manager is very accommodating and is almost like having a mother there.

I was in Ecuador doing research, and had to come and go from Quito several times. I stayed at Aleida's every time I was in Quito. What a great experience!

Elena showed sincere gratitude and helpfulness with her guests. Her place is tidy and well kept. We spent $12/night which is very impressive considering how close we were to some main streets on Quito and Plaza Foch as well. If you're trying to stay somewhere in downtown Quito this hostal is great. But if you're trying to get rowdy, this... More

We stayed here for four nights, upon arrival in Quito. We booked ahead and made arrangements with Elana to have a taxi meet us at the airport.

Myself and 3 friends stayed at Aleida's hostel and had a great stay. Elena is an excellent host and is a big sweetheart. Highly recommend you stay here if you're in Quito. Cheap, clean and cozy. As well, it's in a great neighborhood. Elena is extremely accommodating to any of your needs. Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay.

In a nice neighborhood, this exceedingly gracious hostal is an incredible value. My second-floor room, with a full-sized bed, was plenty spacious and featured a nice large window overlooking neighboring rooftops. Everything was very clean, including the bathroom I shared. Good water pressure and hot water. Including tax, the room was $22.40, anc came with a full breakfast--fresh fruit, freshly-squeezed... More

I stayed here for two nights in a single room which was spacious. Elena is lovely and the breakfast (fresh fruitjuice, srcambled eggs, toast, butter, jam and coffee/tea) was great. I highly recommend this place! Btw it's in a quite safe part of Quito.
