Hostal El Taxo - Hotel Quito - Ecuador

This friendly family-run hostel that is a hidden gem for budget travelers looking for a cozy atmosphere with unbeatable value. Both crucifixes and posters of Snoop Dogg and Bob Marley punctuate El Taxo’s walls, setting an atmosphere that is simultaneously homey and youthful, local and foreign. The spacious dorm rooms are painted in cheerful colors and include bright, spotless bathrooms with hot water. The common area has a working fireplace, leather couches, fresh flowers, and a large cable TV and DVD player. With a mixed clientèle of young Europeans, Americans and Israelis, Hostal El Taxo retains a youthful buzz but doesn't seem to suffer from the noise or mess that often accompanies other budget hostels. As such, it would even be a place that families with children could comfortably stay in. After 6 p.m. during the weekends, El Taxo opens up it's chilled-out outdoor bar and BBQ area in the front patio, which is the perfect place to hang out and have a drink before heading out into the Mariscal’s late-night chaos.
