Hostal Coco Loco was the best part of our trip to Ecuador. In fact, it was so good they couldn't get us to leave!! We went back TWICE after we left originally... the first time we left to travel south down the coast in search of a new place to explore and surf, but when we got to our destination,... More

If you are young backpacker looking to meet people it is the best place to stay. All the staff are super friendly and make you feel welcome. The dorms are lovely and cheap and it's in the perfect location right on the beach front. There is good wifi, warm water, rooms are cleaned ever day and there are occasionally community... More

Great vibes, friendly place, they were full when we arrived and let us store our bags there while we found somewhere else in town to stay. Marco the bartender makes the best fresh fruit cocktails. Katie, Tim and Elizabeth were all great fun and i had my 32nd Birthday party there. We will be back! x x

This was by far the worst place I've stayed in Ecuador. And my standards are generally pretty low, so that says a lot. The regular dorm was full, so I was charged $10 to sleep in a shared room upstairs on a mattress on the floor. I asked why It cost more(regular dorm $6) and was told it was because... More

Went for Christmas and New Year and Elizabeth, the owner, pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a great time. Coco Loco is a really sociable place with a great atmosphere and I would definitely go back and relax in a hammock if I end up in Canoa again!

When you first walk into the frontyard of the Coco Loco you feel like you just arrived in paradise! Palmtrees, Sun and warm sand under your feet and the first thing you want to do is to jump into one of the hamocks. The service is more than amazing. They gave me the warmest welcome and i felt home from... More

We stayed a week at the Coco loco and we really enjoyed it. There were so many people to meet, for the rest of our trip we were bumping in to people from the there. Such a nice place to hang out and relax.

A great place to meet people, run by wonderful staff. It is easy to get stuck in Canoa. The owner Elizabeth is well engaged in making sure the hostal runs to its best. Common area always has people hanging around at all times of the day.

When I arrived, the hostel was fully booked for the night and, but I got a bed for the following three days. While I was there, Liz told me "get a room in the hostel next door for tonight, but come hang out with us later". I did hang out there and met everyone from the hostel. That shows how... More
