Blue House is a very nice place to stay while in Quito. Relaxed and clean with lockers and nice breakfast. The location is great and very close to all the nightlife. The hostel is very secure and entry is monitored by the staff 24/7.

When I got better I actually decided to stay a little longer because the atmosphere was excellent. It was easy to meet people and there was a...

Stayed in this hostel for a week and had a great time. The staff are really friendly, it's cleaned daily, and it's in a great location! Right in the heart of Mariscal, with a huge choice of places to eat, bars and clubs. My two personal favourites - the pizza place across the street ($1 a slice) and Aladdin, around...

Clean, lots of space to socialize, free breakfast and prime location! This hostel far exceeded my expectations as a solo traveller visiting Quito. Wifi was available, staff were friendly and helpful, and you could arrange tours directly through the hostel.

Blue House Hostel is a great backpacker place in the middle of New Town. Is has a large cozy common area and the wifi and breakfast is great.

My partner and I had a fantastic stay in this hostel. The staff all speak excellent English, and are all extremely kind, helpful and friendly, with abundant patience for my bad Spanish :).
