Ayllus Guesthouse might not be in the city center of Quito but it is certainly off the beaten track. The family will most certainly do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. But what’s to do around the Middle of the Earth (Mitad Del Mundo)?
A steep hill going on the mountainside awaits you for a variety of hiking options with an amazing view over the city of Quito that you certainly won’t find in your travel book. With either English or Spanish, the family can advice you on your options. Though, you don’t want to forget your phone with a GPS signal at home. Most of the trails are unmarked. With the right amount of adventurous mindset, you will, however, not be disappointed. Within a few minutes, you will find yourself at the foot of a hill. If you are lucky enough you might even be able to see the peak.
The warm family house in the south of Quito can accommodate big groups up to 14 people with doubles or single rooms with a newly renovated common area and a football/soccer field the evening entertainment is taken care of as well.
Ayllus Guesthouse is located in a very safe neighborhood and offers private parking, hot showers, Wifi, barbecue options, a colorful garden and a flatscreen in your room.
If you want to have a little different experience during your time in Quito and tranquillity is in your mind, this place should be in your top priorities.
What could be better than staying with a local family and their freshly renovated homestay when you are in/around Quito.
