    BoutiQuito is such a nice and pretty hostel. It’s a perfect place to escape from Quito’s busy en noisy city centre. The view from the hostels common room is amazing and so peacefull. If you want, they can even prepare a delicious breakfast for you. There’s a very nice common room to hang out, meet people or read a book, but if you’re looking for a party hostel, maybe this is not the place for you. Just sit back and relax!
