I would possibly give 2 ½ stars because host Santiago is friendly and tries to be helpful. But the room is very basic with a comfortable-enough bed, some closet space with a few hangers, and big windows that let the lights from the neighboring windows shine in at night, which made it difficult for me, at least, to sleep. The room’s bathroom is across the hall, and there is enough hot water. You must provide your own towels, but there is a washer and dryer to clean them. Breakfast of Nescafe coffee, toast and an egg was available. The apartment itself is cleaned twice weekly by a maid, but is verging on the shabby. It is also very noisy – from street traffic and barking dogs (can be typical in Quito) but also from the other apartmentsI left a week earlier than planned because it was so difficult to sleep. Also, there were many problems with wifi connection, and there are not many inexpensive restaurants within quick walking distance.
