Why Community Hostel is the Best:

Unbelievable Food

We have been learning about food and how to provide the best of it day by day, where we are today has been thanks to all of the chefs, and friends from around the world who have taught us there secrets. It doesn’t matter if they were a proffesional chef or just teaching us grandma’s recipe, we have found the best of it and that is what we bring to you every day!

Creating a Community

It starts with our communal dinners and ends with friendships for life, At Community Hostel, we thrive off of creating an ambiance that allows for people to meet and connect with each other, wether it is over breakfast, dinner, beer, a night out or a card game we do it all. Walk in our doors and feel connected to a group of travelers, locals, and life enthusiasts.

We’ve been to a few hostels in Quito, this one is by far the best. Location: this is a very conveniently hostel, so close to the markets, means a cheap and delicious lunch is just around the corner. There's a bakery right below it, and you’re only minutes walk from the vibrant historical center. We definitely preferred the old city centre to the party suburb of Foch. Which by the way is only $2 away by taxi.

Community is a good hostel located in a really good location in the historic center of Quito. The vibe is awesome, I have met a lot of great people! There is a really helpful travel agency and the breakfast was perfect.

The staff were all amazing. This hostel hires real chefs to cook, and the food is always awesome. (for real, you'll think they stole it from a 4 star hotel restaurant) Lots of comfy couches, hot water and friendly people. This is the only place to stay in Quito.

The staff definitely keep this place in the number one spot. They're all really friendly and really helpful. The hostel itself is amazing and feels like a house. Good internet. Hot showers. Amazing $3 breakfasts. Amazing $5 dinners. Rooms are really spacious and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The dorm room beds are like queen sized. They brew their own beer which is really good too. Every night there's some sort of event going on so you if you have nothing to do you won't get bored. Stayed October 2016, travelled solo
