Welcome! Bienvenidos to Hostel Revolution - a friendly, small, chilled Backpacker hostel in the historical part of Quito. Our hostel was created by Backpackers for Backpackers and provides an excellent base for travellers who would prefer to stay in the Old Centre of Quito. The La Mariscal area (Gringolandia) with its bars and international restaurants is only 10 minutes away by cab or bus. From our hostel you can visit Quito’s best asset - its beautiful Historical Center. All the main sites and attractions are within an easy 20-30 minutes walk! Our location near Park Alameda also gives our clients easy access to the 3 main bus lines. These are the Trole line (green stations), the Ecovia line (red stations) and the Metrobus which runs along Avenida América. Hotel Revolution is a small capacity (22 people) chilled out hostel in the historical part of Quito. HR is in a colonial type house with wooden floors & decorative plaster ceilings. We have several common areas: a comfortable TV lounge with lots of DVDs, a rooftop terrace with tables and a great view, and a bar/common room where you relax over a few drinks and socialize. Guests who want to save money and cook their own meals can make use of our fully equipped kitchen. We offer free coffee and tea to all of our guests. We have two computers with internet access for guest usage and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel. We have plenty of bathrooms and showers with lots of hot water. Our hostel provides a non-smoking indoor environment. Smokers can use the balcony or the terrace. Important information We do not have 24 hour reception because of our smaller size. The earliest check-in is 8.00 am and the latest is 11.00 pm. If you will arrive outside of these hours there is no one available to let you in. If your flight arrives after 10.00 pm you cannot make it to our hostel before we close so please do not book your first night’s stay in Quito with us. There are many other hostels which offer a 24 hour reception. * There is some noise from passing traffic as Los Rios is a major street. * We are officially within the historical centre of Quito which is quieter at night. If you want to stay where the clubs and higher priced restaurants are consider staying in La Mariscal (but it is only 10 minutes bus/cab ride away if you want to visit.) * A Valid passport is required by all guests. * Consider lengthening your stay in Quito by becoming a Volunteer.
