Details for Hostel Revolution


Welcome! �Bienvenidos� to Hostel Revolution - a friendly, small, cosy Backpacker hostel in the historical part of Quito. Created by Backpackers for Backpackers, who would prefer to stay in the Old Centre of Quito.

Hotel Revolution is in a colonial type house with wooden floors and decorative plaster ceilings. We have a rooftop terrace with great views, ample clean & modern bathrooms and common area/bar.

HR is owner operated by Matt and Maria, an Australian / Ecuadorian couple who have a small dog, Shakira. HR is not a rowdy party hostel but a small capacity (24 people), chilled out hostel for people of all ages. We provide a comfortable base to visit all the historical attractions of the beautiful centro colonial, which are within comfortable walking distance. Being on the northern edge of the historical centre in the bottleneck of Quito we have access to all the main bus lines. For example if you want to check out La Mariscal area it is only 10 minutes by cab or bus, although we think el Centro is much better La Mariscal has some cool bars and international restaurants.

We have a higher ratio of bathrooms to guests than most other hostels due to our smaller overall capacity. We have a comfortable TV lounge with 100s of DVDs, Rooftop terrace with great view, fully equipped kitchen, maps and information, free internet and Wi-Fi throughout the house, a bar/common room to have a few beers and a non-smoking indoor environment. Volunteer needed! min 2 months

Some example of places to visit include:
Alameda Park & the observatory � both recently renovated and restored � 1 block away
Basilica � climb the towers! 10 minutes walk
Itchimbia park � best views! 10 minute walk uphill
Plaza San Blas � 5 minute walk
Plaza Grande � 15 minute walk
Plaza del Teatro � 10 minute walk
Plaza Santo Domingo � 20 minute walk
Plaza San Francisco � 25 minute walk
La Ronda - one of Quitos oldest streets, restored w/galleries & cafes, live music and traditional food - 25 min walk
Old Military hospital � recently restored and now a museum � 15 minute walk
Old Eugenio Espejo Hospital � recently restored and now an events center � 5 minute walk
Central Market � try local dishes and seafood, cheap! 10 minute walk
La Mariscal- see the gringos, travel agencies and international restaurants - 20 minute walk

.................................Transport
One advantage is we are located in the narrow part of Quito and all the main transport lines come past a block or two away including the Ecovia, Trolley and Metro buses! (Trolley can be taken to get to the airport and main bus terminals).

.................................Important information
*HOSTEL CHECK-IN IS ONLY 8AM to 11.30PM (there is some slight flexibility but will need to be confirmed with us BEFORE you book).
*There is some noise from passing traffic
*Luggage store 25c a day
*We are officially within the historical center of Quito which is quiet at night.(with the exception of La Ronda which is a best kept secret!). If you want to stay amongst the discos & where the travel agents are consider staying in Gringolandia/La Mariscal (which is 10 mins bus/cab)
* We are not the type hostel with nightly theme parties etc!
*valid passport required by all guests

Directions


When we receive your hostelworld booking we will email with links to map and photos of hostel to find us easily. Look for the sign 'Revolution Backpackers' . HR is also on both sides of the balcony.

Getting from the Airport
Taxi ranks with official yellow cabs are out the front of the arrival lounge. You need to negotiate a price as the taxis do not use their meters from the airport (around $9).

You can also buy a prepaid ticket from the taxi booth, Once you agree on the price we are about 20-30 minutes away (depending on the traffic). It is also possible to catch the metro bus to the Parque Alameda stop, though we recommend a taxi at night or when the bus is busy for security reasons.

Local Bus
We are one block from the Ecovia bus stop at Alameda Park. The new ecovia has a dedicated lane which allows for quick and cheap transport from the north to the south of Quito (25c) along 6 de deciembre (Mariscal is just 5 minutes away). Also a few minutes walk is the trolley bus system, similar to the ecovia, it runs north to south in quito valley along 10 de Agosto. The Metro Bus, additionally, is very close and runs along Avenida America west of the trolley all the way to the airport and the interchange for the equator line, mitud del mundo.

National Bus
There are now (from July 2009) TWO main bus terminals in Quito, one in the North (Carcelen) and one in the South (Quitumbe) Quitumbe is just under an hour in the trolley bus to the Alameda stop near the Hostel. You need to take the trolley to El Recreo, and then change bus to get to Alameda. From the Carcelen station, take a bus to La Y trolley stop and then take the trolley to Alameda stop.
