Hostel Overview

Located in the La Tola section of Old Town Quito, Community Hostel is a mere five blocks away from La Plaza Grande, the heart of Colonial Quito’s historic churches, architecture, and sightseeing. We are nestled in an active neighborhood among local wood workers, family businesses, a bustling Ecuadorian local marketplace, private shops, etc. We are a ten-minute walk from two beautiful parks, El Alameda and El Itchimbia, which offer unparalleled views of Quito, beautiful outdoor walking trails, rowboats on the stream, and the famous glass house of Itchimbia. A quick five-minute cab ride away is La Plaza Foch, the busy and active tourist district of New Town Quito ample with restaurants, bars, clubs, and nightlife to satisfy all your partying needs. To relax from your busy night of partying, take a ten-minute cab ride to El Teleferico, where you can take the cable car to see the view of Quito from over 4000m.

We offer several styles of accommodation to fulfill the needs of every traveler, including dormitory, private, and single gender rooms (female only). Our beds are the most comfortable in Quito, handmade by a local artisan carpenter. Sip on some complimentary tea or coffee from one of our two seated balconies and take in the beauty of an Ecuadorian sunrise or sunset while overlooking the city.

We offer complementary laptops, fully loaded with skype and internet access, and free wifi within the hostel so that you can quickly and easily keep in touch with your families and loved ones.
