A little shabby but lovely place to stay, amazing comfortable bed and good hot shower, decode could do with a touch up. WiFi wasn't brilliant but overall very central, nice family running it, good for the cost.

Hostal Quito Cultural is a beautiful Hotel. The owner had some of the best hospitality I've ever experienced! He was super helpful with all our needs and questions and as a bonus could speak fluent english. Also it was right downtown near the plaza grande, so very convenient for going for a walk and seeing lots of shops, food etc.......

Mateo and his wife make a wonderful breakfast for all guests. They are quick with a help, the speak great English, Spanish, Portuguese for sure. The place is clean and quiet. It is a hostel so expect a hostel but it is so much more. The art and plants are comforting and interesting.

Strangely quiet, where was everyone else? Great location during the Foundation day fiestas, right in the heart of the city and less than 5mins from Plaza Grande. But it seemed very empty. I went to Community Hostel for beer and socialization. Good private rooms with bathrooms. amazing view from my window and balcony of the parades. Very large clothes closet....

For me, this was not as expected. Primarily vacant, in every sense, it seemed like we were on our own. We requested separate beds, but got a room with one. There was absolutely no hot water. The phone in the office rang unanswered in the early morning. We answered the door for the taxi...

Super central, our hosts speaks spanish, english, brazilian and even a bit of french! Hotel is not new but beautiful, very sunny and colorful. You just feel good to sit on hammock or sofa on the roof top with beautiful view on the city! La Calle Chile is very busy around 5-7 pm (pedestrian street) but from 9-10 pm you...

At one time this hostal must have seen some glory days because it has those basics for being nice. But on our visit, the following will ensure I won't visit it again: -the cobwebs, dust, some broken items -holes in our room's wall left over from a previous painting, -general sense of "dingy dirtiness around", -the convenience store breakfast (like...

We stayed there for 2 nights and the place was OK. It's 2 blocks from the main square in old town which is convenient for sight seeing. One the other hand you get the noise from the early morning traffic. The room was clean although getting old. The shower took a long time to get warm but had good pressure....

I stayed here for 8 days in March 2016. I was already in Quito and booked my room in person. Mateus was really friendly and showed me round and let me pick the room I liked best, and gave me a good deal as I was staying over a week. I chose to be on the top floor where there...

Quito Cultural is located right in the centre of the historical centre of Quito, 2 blocks away from the Plaza Grande and easy walking distance to all the other sights in the historic district. You are right in the middle of the Quito atmosphere, but also very safe and secure. The rooms are set around a lovely covered courtyard and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hostal Quito Cultural born of a XVIII century building at the hands of a French architect, this house currently consists as a heritage of Barrio San Marcos the oldest in Quito. With a rich pre-Columbian history, the capital of Ecuador was founded on the ruins of an Inca city, but offers everything a modern traveler may need. Still one of the best preserved historical sites in Latin America and the UNESCO declared world heritage. The location of the hostel is convenient because it allows travelers to move around the old Quito and know all the baroque jewels, like the monasteries of San Francisco and Santo Domingo, as well as the church and the college of the Company. The hostel rooms have all the amenities to make guests feel comfortable and can enjoy their holiday as they deserve, our main seal of the fraternity is offered by our staff. ... more   less
