Chilled atmosphere during days and fun activities during evening including drinking games, salsa, clubbing. Breakfasts were delicious. Pizzas were great. Stayed here twice during my trip. Staff all really helpful

The location was pretty bad, a sketchy 25 min walk being necessary to reach the central place with bars and restaurants. I really don't think this place is a good one when you want to hang out at night...

Room tip: Try not to choose the dorms that have windows, they are close to the street and there is a lot of noise outside, even at night.

Thanks for you comment. Minka Hostel is located in the historical center and it is clearly indicated in all websites where we advertise. Also, we always warn the distance between Plaza Foch (which is not in historical part of the city) and us. Nevertheless, trolebus, ecovía and metrobus (main Quito line buses) are within 2 blocks.
Anyway, we hope that this misunderstood has notspoiled your visit to our city.

The staff is awesome , it's clean, beds are comfortable. Only the showers have some issues like it's either too hot or too cold,but other than that I loved it. They also make really great food if you want to have breakfast and dinner there.

This is a really tidy backpackers, especially for Ecuador. Rooms are clean, service is great and the communal areas are awesome. It's a walk away from the historic centre, literally right beside the massive Basilica cathedral and the three main transportation lines so the location was pretty good. Showers were a bit meh but the shared rooms are definitely good value for money.

Room tip: The communal facilities are great so go for the shared rooms as the privates I thought were too dear.

I stayed for two nights would definitely stay again. The beds are really comfortable and clean. They have a big common area to hang out and great to make new friends. They also have pizzas and beers at night and breakfast operation ( the pancakes are the beast!!). Really helpful staff and it is really close to the old town and a 5 minute taxi ride to Mariscal. Highly recommended!
