10/10 Exceptional

I can't say enough god things about Mayasa!! They were in a remodeling/expansion phase when we visited, so they were still ironing out a few things. The hostel is really charming with open courtyard areas. The rooms are basic, but nice. A full breakfast with fresh juice, fruit and eggs is included every day. The hostel is in an awesome neighborhood with lots of restaurants, bars and squares, etc. The staff, particularly Juan, were soo nice and helpful! Mayasa would be a great place to meet other travelers. I highly recommend this hostel! One recommendation for the staff would be to add some hooks to the hotel rooms for hanging coats, etc.

4/10 Fair

Nice but private rooms are noisy
After a wonderful stay at Masaya Quito, we were expecting the same here. The room was nice but not as lovely as the Quito Masaya, but the big problem was the level of noise. The hostel’s only two double rooms with private bathroom are right by the bar and hostel staff allowed noise into the early hours. The place was nice and clean, breakfast lovely and mostly helpful service, but in my view due to the noise it’s not ideal for couples staying in the private rooms - better for those who are looking for the true hostel experience.

8/10 Very good

The Masaya Hostel is located on a beautiful street in the Candelaria neighborhood. It is very secure and the rooms feel very luxurious for a hostel. Our private room had an enormous bed and the linens were good quality. The breakfast was very varied with lots of fresh fruit and pancakes with homemade jam. The shared bathrooms were always clean and tidy. There was some work going on in the hostel and there was some noise as all rooms lead onto an interior patio, but this wasn't a major issue. Highly recommended.

6/10 Good

Nice hostel overall but some major issues.
This place is quite nice for a hostel, but unfortunately there were a couple of issues which ruined my stay. Front desk speak English and are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite nice but very cold, and my bathroom had a strong mould smell and I got sick as I am very allergic to mould. As the room was so cold I would get changed under the bed covers. Unfortunately I left my only warm pair of pants (trousers, not British pants) in the bed when I checked out. I returned the next day but they were nowhere to be found. It seems someone decided they wanted to keep them and didn't bother to put them in lost property. This is very disappointing and the main reason I would not recommend this hostel.
