Awarded 2014 Best Hostal in Ecuador, The Secret Garden is a friendly Australian/Ecuadorian run hostel conveniently located in a quiet, authentic cobble-stone street in central colonial Quito. Our 'barrio', or neighbourhood, is one of the few remaining Colonial districts and even our building is protected by a United Nations World Heritage listing. With a big improvement in security in the Old Town in recent years, plus 24 hour police patrols, our neighbourhood now enjoys a level of safety and security equal to (or often better than!!) most international capital cities.
But there's more!!
Our beautifully restored colonial building features a rooftop terrace/restaurant/bar with breathtaking views of the historical Old Town. Feel free to browse our hostal book exchange, chat with our friendly Ecuadorian and foreign staff, check your email with our free Wifi, or just relax listening to any of our wide selection of music.
We have agreed a list of prices with selected taxis to the main destinations in Quito and around, this is safe and fair price guaranteed!
