We just loved Hostel Revolution! Sandra is by far the greatest host we've had in our trips. She's very nice, interesting to chat with and her recommendations for what to do in Quito are great- she's always willing to help you out. The hostel is very very clean, especially the bathrooms. The rooms are very nice and the kitchen as...

Good location close to the historic center! Spacious and clean dormitory! Comfortable bed! A spacious and full equiped kitchen at your disposal. Hot showers (important in Quito!) Very nice and helpful staff. Sandra, the owner, makes everything to make you feel confortable here.

Spent a few days here, and it was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Rooms and bathrooms immaculate, location quiet and there are security cameras even though neighborhood doesn't seem sketchy. Easy walk to Old Town and groceries and market are nearby.

I believe Hostel Revolution is one of the best hostels in Quito if you looking for something quiet and home-like. Its location is very convenient as it is walking distance from the historic center and also La Mariscal. Also bus stops are super close if you are interested in going to La Mitad del Mundo. Hostel is kept superclean and...

The owners and volunteers were really friendly and helpful as soon as i arrived. Had cheap 1.25 big beers in happy hour as well as lots of films available to watch which made for a relaxing stay when not out exploring. Comfy beds excellent wifi and good showers. Got the ecovita to the bus station takes about an hour and...

Nice, clean, welcoming place. But the owner is WAY too hands on, I felt like I was a 15 year old on a school trip, everything came with a look, groan or comment. Again, lovely place and lovely owner, just not at all for me.

HostelRevolution, Owner at Hostel Revolution, responded to this review

When capital letters in a review are necessary to make a point it usually lacks the substance. A future guest cannot benefit from the review that contradicts itself in every sentence, to the point of incoherency. Here are the facts. You arrived early in the morning, after a night on the bus. I made sure that you and your friend...

Perfect central hostel whether your passing through or plan on spending some time in quito. Sandra was extremely helpful and always happy to give advice on all things. The hostel itself is immaculate and kitchen is fully equipped

Sandra runs an amazingly tight ship at Hostel Revolution: fantastic central location, friendly staff, advice and a daily happy hour! My friend Nick and I returned on several occasions whilst passing through Ecuador. The motivations were always the same: to have a feeling of home while travelling foreign lands. I would highly recommend Hostel Revolution to anyone considering Quito as...

As we are sitting here in the TV room, hanging out with our new travel friend from Finland we called Sandra, the owner of this hostel, over to let her know we felt at home here. We actually stayed 2 nights, then left to Otavalo and stayed a few nights there while doing excursions. Now we are back in Quito,...

“The first floor dorm can be a bit noisy sometimes, being next to the common room. No big deal but perhaps the ones upstairs are more quite?”
