- Yanapuma Foundation and Spanish SchoolE8-125, Quito Canton, Ecuadorrecommended Yanapuma Foundation and Spanish SchoolReally good with one on one lessons. the school founds the foundation and expect lots of support and helpful advice about traveling in Quito and Ecuador.Jon Jared
I took lessons and volunteered here. They have a great approach and are really supportive. Let me know if you need a contact. They also can provide recommendations from previous students.
- St. Gallen HausGuanguiltagua N37-04 y Diego Noboa, Quito, Ecuadorrecommended St. Gallen HausGreat spot in a terrific neighborhood away from the not so great elements of the Mariscal.Jon Jared
I stayed here for a few weeks and it´s a really good hostel. It´s located in El Batan, which is in the North of the city. Directly in back of it is a huge park and it´s relatively easy to get to the Mariscal, shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.
- Posada Del MapleJuan Rodriguez E8-49 y 6 de Diciembre | La Mariscal, Quito, Ecuadorrecommended Posada Del MapleNicest backbacking hostel in all of Quito. The Maple provides a warm, safe, family feel and - for a hostel - its has a really cool interior design. It's also perfectly located adjacent to the bars, ... read morerestaurants and shops of Mariscal Sucre on a lovely tree-lined side street. Most of the lodging is dormitory style, but you can generally at least secure a room for your group. And if not, the other travelers at this spot are generally amiable folk. Great spot.Arlo Hemphill
Here's a nice, economical hostel in the Mariscal District. It is very clean, safe and friendly - and they have a fantastic breakfast patio.
recommended La MariscalFun place. This is best part of Quito to hang in if you are a younger, international traveler. Lots of great bars, restaurants, Internet cafes, shops, etc.Arlo Hemphill
Although not the prettiest part of town, La Mariscal is the hands down best area to be for learning Spanish and staying in town for any duration as an international traveler. The neighborhood has many good shops, bars, restaurants and a gazillion Internet cafes. It is also fairly central, making it a good base of operations for exploring other parts of the city.
