beautiful city, lovely people and culture, prices are affordable, but not that safe in general. The crime has been rising in Quito. Wouldn't recommend staying in the historic area if you want to go out at night (because most locals won't leave their houses once it's dark due to crime, especially important for women to note this). In the daytime, relatively okay to walk around but i wouldn't recommend taking a computer to a coffee shop (it's not that type of city and would raise eyebrows). I recommend dressing down and not wearing jewelry and taking uber if you need to get around. Knowing some Spanish will get you by further. If you're looking for nightlife you can check out the Zona Rosa which is pretty safe at night and is a good place to stay if you want to go out at night. Meals on average are $2 for a full plate of food juice and dessert. The safest neighborhood to stay in is near the park La Carolina which is might as well be an entirely different city (this is basically the "rich area" but is nice to stay at because you can also go out here at night and be safe). Also this area tends to have more modern apartments available on AIRBNB with aircon/heating/internet that sort of thing. InaQuito/Baton are the safest neighborhoods for nomads.
