593 Boutique Hostel is a comfortable design hostel in the north of Quito. I stayed for two nights in a private room, and here´s what I experienced!
+ included in the price
The lovely Veronica brings fruit to your table and asks how you’d like your eggs
– no guest kitchen which was a shame! I had brought food to prepare so the receptionist kindly let me use the staff area.
+ there are seating areas dotted about the hostel – there is a beautifully designed corner to discover on every floor!
The upstairs dining area has a large sofa with TV and playstation, and table tennis.
+ yes and the showers are great
+ 593 Boutique hostel is located in a quiet residential area that feels really safe. It is near the huge Carolina Park and Iñaquito fruit and veg market – which is well worth a visit for the atmosphere.
– It is a bit far from Quito´s historic centre but there are plenty of buses nearby to take you all over the city.
+ absolutley gorgeous! Every room has lots of natural light and is spotlessly clean.
+ The mattresses are excellent and the beds in the private rooms are huge!
Price: dorm beds are $35 a night (discounts available for large groups). In my opinion this is quite high but top-end price reflects the high standard of the hostel.
+ 593 hostel is very secure. You have to buzzed in at the front door when you arrive, and then are given a key card. Every room has a key and there is a locker for everyone – even in the private rooms.
+ the staff were very friendly and were willing to help with any question.
The hostel had a relaxed atmosphere.
+ yes, all over the hostel
+ each floor has a different theme that represents the different geographical regions of Ecuador – the Amazon jungle, the coast, the highlands and the Galapogos Islands. The themes are represented in the colour schemes and the distinctive murals
+ slippers and toiletries!
These little extra touches made my stay at 593 Hostel memorable.
Stars: ***** I award 593 Boutique Hostel 5/5 stars!
