Casa Agua Canela is a great base while exploring the city of Quito. The place feels like home with cozy rooms, a living, a big and spacious kitchen. Even a nice patio and roof top terrace are available for guests to use. Two of the city's major public transport lines pass at two blocks from the house making it super...

I have lived for 3 months in Casa Agua Canela and I can not imagine a better place to stay in Quito. The owner David, Andres and Luly are super friendly and really willing to help with any problem.

I spent 4 months living there and my room was clean all the time, also bathroom and kitchen. The owners are always there to help for everything you need. Location is also good, just 10 minutes walking from la Plaza Foch and 10 minutes cab-driving from the historical center.

This Casa was a short 5min walk from our excellent Spanish School (San Cristobal Spanish School). It was also only a 5min walk to Santa Clara market (where we ate breakfast everyday - try the Llapingachos!). David, the hostel owner was super helpful, friendly and very accommodating. The private room and ensuite we booked fell a little short of expectations...

The hostel is clean and functional, and David, the owner, is very friendly. He was particularly reasonable when we could not arrive on the first night we booked due to delayed flights, he didn't even consider charging us for this. The price is cheap and the rooms are budget to reflect this. I'm not sure about all rooms, but our...

Dear Guest We truly apologize to not letting you know beforehand about the tempurpedic mattress (http://www.tempurpedic.com/mattress/difference.asp) we have in that specific room. As far as we know the material of this mattress adapts to your shape, weight and temperature to deliver a good night sleep. But it seems that it didn't work for you and we most likely will replace...

David and Andres are wonderful hosts! They helped us to get oriented quickly and we really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. When we return to Quito we will stay in this beautiful apartment again! The location is perfect. The neighborhood is walkable, close to a small park and various places to buy groceries and supplies. There is a bakery...

Casa Agua Canela is a wonderful little hostel perfectly located in Quito. David was extremely helpful and accomodating throughout my 2 month stay - nothing I asked of him was ever too much trouble! The newly refurbished rooms make for a very homely environment and the rooftop terrace and internal courtyard are great places to relax. Would definitely recommend.

We have 10 available rooms ( 5 singles and 5 doubles/twin beds ) and a fully furnished one bedroom apartment ( fits 3 people - 700 square feet approximately) with private kitchen, living room and bathroom . A terrace where you can sunbathe in a comfy chair and an indoor patio with plants. It's located close to the main entertainment and tourist mecca, the "Mariscal" district, but yet provides a peaceful neighborhood for those who want a little peace of mind.
