Casa Bambu, Quito


Casa Bambu hostel

Conveniently located a ten minute journey from both Old Town and Mariscal, Casa Bambu is somewhat of a sanctuary for the newly arrived traveler in Quito. The owner, a friendly Dutchman who has lived in Quito for 16 years, ensures that the hostel is maintained to an immaculate standard at all times. There also seems to be more of a community atmosphere in Casa Bambu than your average hostel, in part due to the large numbers of people living there long term.

For the many positives that can be said about Casa Bambu there are clearly some negatives. The kitchen is not wonderfully stocked with equipment, there is no WiFi, and it is part way up a hill. Having said that people, and the views of the surrounding mountains from the pretty terrace far outweigh the negatives. To be treated to the experience of spending the evening listening to a concert for free from the Casa De Cultura, whilst watching fireworks shower over the city below, is truly one of Quito's highlights.
