    What else ...

    Quito is situated in a beautiful valley in the Andes Mountains offering incredible views and the historical district, just a few blocks from the hostel, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site so the exploring opportunities are endless! Due to Quito's position it is also very easy to travel on time off to explore the many beautiful places that Ecuador has to offer. Ecuador is a small country but has so much to see including the coast, Amazon and mountains and as it is small it is easy to travel around. If you like hiking Ecuador is paradise as there are many mountains and volcanoes to climb. Due to working in the hostel, it is easy to meet people to travel with and you will make friends from all over the world.
