The location of this Hostel is great. Major transit lines are close by. The staff all speak very good english. The room I had was small but it was perfect for a budget traveller who wants a clean, safe inexpensive room in central Quito.

We stayed here for 5 nights and found the hostal to be very good. It's in a quieter part of town a 15 minute walk to the main square with several restaurants in a street a block and a half away. The room was clean with hot water shower. The owners of the family run hostal speak good English. They...

Located in San Blas this hostel has large, ensuite rooms for a reasonable price. Clean and comfortable with a nice hot shower. There was no fan or A/C in our room but we didn't require either during our stay. Our room was at the front of the hostel in the second building and with only single glazed windows it can...

This hostel is excellent in many ways, the rooms and bathrooms are very nice, the location is perfect, the staff are very polite, the rooftop terrace is lovely. However there is one thing that absolutely needs to change; the fact they lock the front doors so you cannot either enter or even EXIT the building without a member of staff...

Very good location, in the center. There are many shops, bus stops around hostel. The dorms are not very spacious, but clean and with very warm blankets. And it is a liitle bit noisy from outside. The room, bathroom, other public areas were very clean. There is a rooftop terrace with nice views to the city. They accept credit cards....

Good value for old town Quito. Simple hostel, clean, economical. Great WiFi (I work while traveling). The downstairs community room is okay, but the rooftop terrace and kitchen is great. Bathroom and shower is clean and hot water. For a good budget spot near the historic center of Quito this is good.

The facilities are clean and the staff is very friendly. It's central. The only thing I absolutely did not like is that the reception isn't open 24 hours. I felt locked up as if I was in a prison. Because they close everything up. You have to tell them in advance if you want to get out after 22.00

Located near the hostels area of San Blas, this fairly clean "hostel" offers many private rooms that are reasonably priced and offer a good alternative to the crowded dorm rooms of Quito. Staff are courteous, flexible (they allowed me to leave my part of my luggage in storage while I explored the rest of the country), and speak good English....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chicago Hostel was founded in 2003 in a modern building with modern structures and strong bases. These facilities were created to be a hosting business from the beginning. The rooms and bathrooms were not improvised so that they have adequate ventilation, adequate natural light and the system pressure and water temperature was set to supply a large number of people. Chicago Hostel is a family business with friendly and helpful staff, we are located in the heart of the city, inside a traditional neighborhood Quiteño considered part of the Old Town. It also has a good level of security and there is a police station two blocks away from our hostel. Privileged location, very close to the beating heart of Quito within walking distance to the main tourist attractions. We are located one block away from a main avenue where there is a lot of public transportation which could drive you to the rest of the city as La Mitad del Mundo, Teleférico, Airport, Interprovinciales bus stations, local bus stations, etc. We work hard to provide you a spectacular stay, help you with directions, information about transportation, safety tips and several recommendations that travelers need to have a nice and quiet visit to our city. We offer a place where you can rest and recharge your energy for a new day. We offer you a lot of tourist information, besides we can help you with tours inside and outside the city, we offer you a top terrace which has a wonderful view of the city, its surroundings and the idyllic Pichincha mountain. Hostal Chicago is home for tourists from around the world. Enjoy a friendly, fun and intimate atmosphere. Our facilities include spacious and comfortable rooms, full private bathrooms, showers with hot water 24/7, daily housekeeping service, free WIFI, general security lockers, covered and decorated top terrace, free use of kitchen, a Coffee-Bar with a wide range of drinks accompanied by cable TV , good music, WiFi signal and a pool table. Do not expect a five star service, expect a service where our staff strives to help you to get your way and get there safely. This is a spectacular place to relax and unwind in a great environment where prevails cleaning , companionship , friendship and respect among everyone. Do not hesitate ! Looking forward to your pleasant visit. ... more   less
