We were thrilled to use the Nucapacha Hostel team to organise a 1 week Galápagos Islands boat tour, on the recommendation from a friend. We had limited time and Carolina and her team did an amazing job of presenting us with a range of options for the Galápagos for the dates we provided. They also went above and beyond to...

I stayed their twin room, and dorm room too. It's close to bus terminal, airport and you can use the kitchen. If you want to stay quiet, get a private room because dorm room is quite loud and close to bar.

The best thing about this hostel, other than the attentive staff, is the pool area. A spacous courtyard with seating, a hammock and a bar, next to a well maintained pool complete with slackline-and all surrounded by Ecuador's plentiful fruit trees. A vey relaxed and clean place to spend a few days, and there's always fruit juice with breakfast. Would...

I stayed for 2 nights and had a good rest, the pool is great to refresh after a really hot day in the city. The dorm was comfortable, but a little bit warm. I would like the staff to have more info about other close-by destinations, in order to plan a better trip. Very well located, nice breakfast and clean....

I only stayed one night but it was great. Breakfast was included and was delicious eggs, jam, bread, juice and tea/coffee. Water was hot, everything was clean. Staff incredibly helpful. I didn't go swimming but I could imagine in the heat of a summer's day the pool would be a massive asset!

Central location. Clean room. Friendly staff. Basic breakfast included. I can warmly recommend it for a stay in Guaquaquil. Staying in Urdesa is an even better choice than staying downtown, in my opinion.

This hostel is pretty nice, has a good kitchen and a common area, there's an outdoor area with a bar but hostel was empty so the bar was unattended.
