  • Description

    Description

    A Flashpackers hostel with restaurant/bar, in Quito and Cuenca, Ecuador.
    Our hostels have dorms and private rooms.

    In the restaurant/bar you can enjoy the comfortable atmosphere with travelers and locals alike.
    We aim at creating a more green environment by not having T.V´s, canned goods, or microwaves.

    We recently changed the location of our hostel in Cuenca to place with a rooftop restaurant/bar with a spectacular view of Cuenca and the Cajas mountains, so we need a lot of help in marketing, social media, socializing, party planning, and other activities.

    We are located near the main tourist area and in your free time there are many bars, restaurants and clubs within walking distance. In Quito a short bus ride will take you to the historical center to see the cathedrals, museums and plazas. You can also hire bikes and tour the city on your own or view the city from a height using the cable car. Volunteers will have the ability to get a discount on Spanish lessons in a local school if they want to improve their Spanish.

    In Cuenca we're directly across the street from a local farmers mercado 9 de Octubre, the Plaza Civica, six blocks from the bus station, three blocks from the main plaza "Parque Calderon" and a 5 minute walk to the tourist area "Calle Larga." Our Cuenca location boasts an amazing rooftop view of central Cuenca and the Caja mountains.
