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.

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,...

This hostel has a very safe, warm, clean, and home-like feel to it. I love the peaceful crowd that this place draws. It is located just a couple blocks from the best food and beer in the San Blas neighborhood for when you want to go out. The owner, Sandra, is very cool and does a wonderful job making everyone...

This hostel was really great! The hostel is really clean and has a relaxed atmosphere. The hostel is not for party people, but if you are looking forward to meeting new people or just to relax after walking around Quito, this is the place to be. The owner Sandra really treats everyone as friends rather than customers. She organized quiz...

Easygoing staff, great dormbeds, good kitchen to prepare your own food. Ideal to catch a breath from citylife yet close enough to a couple a bars and secret garden to go out and grab a drink. Loved it!

“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?”
