The space

Comfortable, nice, clean and private single or matrimonial bedroom with private bathroom, hot water, drinkable water and wifi. Clean towels covers and sheets and cleaning service once a day.

Guest access

You'll share the house with other guests, in a friendly, healthy enviroment, from where you can be familiarized with the city and it's wonders. You have access to touristic information and connections to travel around the country. There's a shared Tv room at the house's living room and a nice terrace to enjoy a sunny day, read a book or have breakfasts.

There's a kitchen that you can share at the house (people staying for longer terms have the priority).

We offer laundry service, tours around the country, birdwatching tours and transfers to the airport.

Interaction with guests

I live at the house with my daughter and husband. We usually welcome guests ourselves and share time with them, we're national guides and speak english fluently. If we're not at the house, our employee will be always willing to help you (he doesn't speak english though), there's always somebody willing to help you at the guest house.

The neighbourhood

Though in a calm street, you'll be steps away from Plaza Foch, the place you want to be for food and nightlife, coffee shops, all types of restaurants, bookstores, hospitals, pharmacies, churches, travel agencies, souvenir shops, the artisan market, malls, gyms, Spanish and dancing lessons, ATMs, etc.

As any other City Center anywhere, you have to take care walking by yourself at night, but you can always take a taxi for a dollar or two and get back home at night if you went out alone. The house is very safe inside, we control who gets in or out and have good locks and an alarm. Our staff is very trustworthy.
The guest house is only open for people with previous reservation, so you and your belongings will always be safe as there's no people from the street allowed inside.

Getting around

The house is surrounded by transportation options, there's Ecovía and Trolebus a few blocks away from where you can get almost anywhere in the city. We can call a cab for you that will pick you up at the door or you can get one on the street just a few steps away from the door.
For a 2 dollar taxi ride, you can reach the old town in only a few minutes. If you like to walk, this is a great place for you since you can get to El Ejido or La Carolina parks by foot.
Parking spaces are hard to get in this neighborhood, you can rent a place for the night around the corner like we do and during the day you can park at the door (the parking meter is 0.40 cents/hour).

If you're coming from the airport, you'll get to the city in 45 minutes to one hour on a taxi that should charge you around 25 USD.

Other things to note

Everything is arrangeable just talk to us.

The hostel is open, clean, cosy and well decorated with a lovely terrace. It´s central, situated right next to La Foch. I felt at home from day 1 thanks to the lovely, and helpful receptionist. She was a great guide and friend during my first month in Ecuador. Recommendable place to stay in Quito!

GREAT PLACE! We stayed here 3 separate times during one visit. Very accommodating, quiet, clean, friendly and great location. Beds are super comfy and the patio is a nice place to plan your next day / wind downIf we go back to Quito, will definitely stay here again.

A great place to stay in Quito! Easy walk to the main square but far enough to have the best night's sleep our entire trip. The lady working there was a huge help in figuring out bus transport for the following day. We will certainly stay here again when we return to Quito!

Look no further and stay here. The house is great, cozy and clean. Excellent location close enough(couple blocks walk) to the plaza Foch while still having some privacy. Lorena is an excellent host. Highly recommended staying here

The experience at Lorena's place was great. Because of our flight delay we arrived at her place a full 24 hours late. She was very accommodating, staying in touch with us and being there to welcome us when we arrived. She gave us a tour of the property and told us about the surrounding neighborhood. She also gave us tips on which areas to stick to and which ones to avoid. We had an early flight the following day that needed us to be at the airport at 5AM. She made sure there was a taxi waiting for us at 4AM. We'd definitely stay at Lorena's place the next time we're in Quito.

I'm a guide in Ecuador with 10 years of experience, I love to work with people, I usually guide in the wilderness. I'm spending a lot more time in Quito lately because I'm a mother now.
My partner and I organize tours around the country together and love to host our clients and guide them around. He's been a guide for about 26 years and love to share his experience with our guests. For us this is a very serious matter since we love to travel too and we know how important it is to find the best place to stay, with the best services.

Looking forward to meeting more new people from around the world.

It's been a great experience so far!
