Ecuador cheap hotels will help you travel for less, whether you are on a mission to explore the whole continent of South America on a budget or simply want to see one country for as little as possible. Affordable accommodation is one of the top reasons budget travelers plan a trip to Ecuador.

Travelers who aren’t looking to splurge will be very comfortable in Ecuador budget hotels, where for about 25 USD or less a night, you can have a private room in a comfortable little hotel.
Some travelers don’t expect this affordable accommodation to stretch to the capital city, but this simply isn’t true. Cheap hotels in Quito Ecuador are just as popular as they are in different parts of the country, and in Quito, there are more to choose from. If you’re only looking for a place to rest your head and budget is very important, you may want to consider hostels.
