Review: 593 Boutique Hostel, Quito

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!

Breakfast:
+ included in the price

breakfast at 593 Boutique Hostel Quito

juice, cereals, cheeses, ham, bread and jam are available in a self-service buffet.

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.

Common zone:
+ 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.

Hot water:
+ yes and the showers are great

Location:
+ 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.

Rooms:
+ 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.

Security:
+ 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.

Welcome:
+ the staff were very friendly and were willing to help with any question.

The hostel had a relaxed atmosphere.

Wifi:
+ yes, all over the hostel

Extras:
+ 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!
