El Cafecito is a cozy hostel setting with an equally charming café/restaurant. It poses as a house with a nicely kept garden from the outside, while on the interior appears as the perfect calm setting to grab a cup of our astoundingly high rated coffee. The atmosphere welcomes people into the family in a home style setting. El Cafecito is known to locals and travelers alike as the perfect place to taste some of Quito’s best coffee and tastiest treats in a mellow, relaxing atmosphere. We have a variety of coffee beans from around the country, including some of the most aromatic in Ecuador from El Cafecito’s own coffee bean farm. Our well rounded menu includes freshly baked treats, lunch and dinner courses and a variety of cold refreshments as well. Breakfast can be served daily upon request.
Our property sits on the edge of the main touristic area. We are within walking distance of everything in the Plaza Foch (restaurants, bars, etc.). For those wishing to explore some of the beautiful city by foot: Parque Carolina (20 mins), Parque El Ejido (15 mins), La Basilica del Voto Nacional (40 mins), and the rest of the Centro Historico (35-40 mins) are all easily explored. For those wishing to venture out a little further to El Teleferico, Parque Metropolitano, or even one of the neighboring cities, taxis and busses are easily accessible.
The rooms carry the same vibe as the accompanied café/restaurant. We have both dorm style rooms, as well as, single and double bed private.
