Overall not a bad place to stay, it is clean and breakfast is good. However the reason they get a 2 star is because I was treated to rudely by the owners. Firstly my friend was not allowed to wait out on the tables at the front while I put my bags upstairs, this is one of their rules, no...

We've stayed here for several nights, coming back to Quito from different parts of Ecuador. A very nice place to stay for this price. Room was clean and really quiet, we didn't hear any noise from the street. The owners are very friendly, you do really feel you are home. Breakfast is nice, including fruit salad and fresh juice. And...

I stayed at this hostel when I first arrived in Quito. The owners seemed nice enough but they put me in the room outside in the back and it is not nice. No windows just a cement block. If you do decide to stay here, make sure you get a room in the main house.

The overall stay was descent and pleasent, good hospitality, the breakfast was great and untipcally rich, facilities were clean, showers were hot but difficult to control- as the temperture changed all the time. The one thing that annoyed me the most (and really made me leave on a sour note) was the fact that I was asked to leave the...

Had a lovely stay at Hostel Galapagos Natural Life. The staff were absolutely lovely, very friendly and welcoming - especially Luz who gave us a bracelet as a gift when we left!! Lovely breakfast too with a fruit salad, bread, scrambled eggs, coffee etc. Another bonus being no bunk beds in the rooms! Much as gracias por todo!

My wife and I stayed at this hostel during our first week in Quito while we were looking for a place to live. The hostel is in La Mariscal district which is the main party/tourist area in Quito. There is plenty of different types of transportation available in the area (taxis, blue bus, Echovia, etc) so you shouldn't have any...

The 'mum' in this hostel is the nicest woman you'll come across. Helped us with anything she could even though she didn't speak English and my Spanish is limited. Nice beds and hot water. The rooms are a bit cold though. The breakfast is what you should look forward to, a dorm is 10$ including breakfast which includes a bowl...

Didn't have a good stay here, Although most of the family are very helpful the girl that works at the desk during the day is extremely rude, When I said I wanted to cancel my reservation early because my friend who lives in Quito wasn't allowed to come in for lunch.. I questioned her about it and she said that's...

We wanted to sleep in a Hostel we found on Hostelworld (Vibes). Luckily we chose the Galapagos Hostel on the other side of the street. It was cheaper and the family which runs the hostel is just amazing. Location aswell, just one corner to all the party hotspots. We also enjoyed one evening watching DVD's at the hostel. They have...

“We stayed in the private room, which meant we had our own shower. Was also in the back so we probably did not get as much noise from the street.”
