We were there before we traveled to the Galapagos. We booked online the private room which was perfect, very clean comfort and the air conditioner was awesome. The price is a little high so we had to move to the dorms. The dorms are separate males/females so if you are couple it's not the best. Breakfast is really tasty and...

What a disenchantment after all the lovely pousadas in the highlands. This hostel is faceless and demure. The staff had a had time smiling from time to time and messed up our booking when we came back after two weeks. Since they had not reserved a proper room for us we had to sleep in a freshly painted and smelly...

The hostel is located in a residencial neighbourhood and close to 2 shopping malls with food plazas. The staff is friendly and helpful and gives good information how to get to different places by bus. They serve a small complimentary breakfast which is nice because in most Ecuadorian hostels there is no breakfast at all. It was hot and humid...

I've been staying somewhere remote and full of mosquitoes and snakes, so this has been heaven! I found the staff very friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were clean (until other guests showed up and made it gross) A short walk to the mall and even at night nearby restaurants (including a famous hamburger stand that people line...

This hostel has more rules and regulations than a prison. Even the book-swap is locked up after 6pm! The rooms are small and tight, barely room to walk around the bed. The windows look out onto an airless central well, or are very high up like those of a cell. All is minimal (not minimalist): minimal towels, minimal toilet paper,...

Dream kapture The hostel is located 10 minutes walking from the large City Mall. It's 20 Min from the Malecon. The neighborhood is average and somewhat sketchy at night. Staff told me to not bring cell phone or lots of money. I booked a private room with private bath for 22USD. SCAM1 That totally changes when you get there. If...

The main draw back of this hostel is the location which can't really be helped. There area it is in feels a bit unsafe after dark (especially for two female travellers) and all taxi drivers warn you it is a dangerous area. This doesn't really filing you with much confidence. However, it is a good place to stay for a...

Safe, relaxed & quite. Friendly staff. Good breakfast (included). Nice little pool to cool off in. Kid/baby friendly. Plenty of places to eat close by. My wife loved this place and we both recommend it if you are padding through Guayaquil.
