The Posada Colonial is in a great location in the heart of old town. Close to everything; restaurants, transportation, markets, entertainment...... The hostel is set in a beautiful old home. There are several large rooms, some with their own bathroom and some with a shared bathroom. There are a large communal area, a tv room and a well-stocked kitchen for...

Very happy with my time at this hostel. Old building with unique layout and architecture, but facilities are well-maintained. Spacious room, good price for location and accommodation offered. Staff was very helpful! Breakfast (not included) wasn't anything to call home about though.

Family room for four was lovely wood floor with balcony. La Ronda is at end of street with restaurants, bars and nightly parades....at the weekend. Hostel is out of earshot. Good view from roof terrace. Good for historic centre. Good breakfast. Top value.

Excelent hostel, clean facilities and friendly staff. Perfect location to discover the secrets of Quito. Competitive prices, 10€ per night in our case. They kept our package for a day even after the check out.

Monica and her son Ivan are very helpful (though quite reserved hosts). Ivan speaks good English. There's good wifi and a communal computer you can use. Desayuno (breakfast) is $2.50 and the typical...

My girlfriend and I had a great stay here. We asked for a private room, and got a 4 bed dorm room to ourselves with an attached washroom. It was perfect for us to spread our stuff everywhere :) The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were also comfortable enough with English (and our guidebook level Spanish). The location...

My friends and I spent a total of 6 nights at La Posada Colonial, returning to the same room each time we returned to Quito. The staff were always super friendly and helpful, in both English and Spanish (though they certainly preferred to speak in Spanish) -- I was a little concerned at first about my lack of Spanish, especially...
