I stayed in Hostal Amalur for three nights in the beginning of december. Location is quiet, two streets or three minutes by foot away from the beach. The cleanliness of the room was sufficient for me, but there was some sand on the floor and apparently it was not wiped under the bed - room was cleaned once during my... More

We ended up staying here for quite a few nights longer than expected. The guys who run it are friendly and fun. The food is good compared to other options in the town at this time of year. And despite the weather not being great we had a brilliant time.

Loved the place. Rooms are clean and very well decorated. The atmosphere of the hostal is very pleasant. The staff and owners are friendly. The food is great and at a good price. Hot water is available. A Good place to spend a couple of days and enjoy Canoa

This is probably not a good place to stay if you want to meet people (or maybe it´s just the quiet season now), I was the only person in my 3-bed dorm ($10 at time of writing). But the food is great (eggplant is highly recommended), the beds are comfy and mosquito-netted, and the room and bathroom are very quiet... More

We took another trip to Canoa, this time with our daughter who was visiting from the US. For us the only place to stay is Amalur. We had a great visit with Lorena, Diego and Luna. We have known them for three years now and they are part of our family. So if you want a clean, relaxing and friendly... More

We spent 2 nights in Canoa, and very much enjoyed this Hostal. Although the rooms were kind of small, it was sufficient for our needs. It was good they provided fans and mosquito netting. The setting was very nice as well, not far from the beach. The restaurant was really good as well!

The owners speak good English and are very good hosts. We'd stay there again, as the showers were hot, the place is cute, the food is good, and it's close to the beach. The rooms vary in their amenities and prices.

The owners, Lorena and Diago were the friendliest people we met in all of our two week stay in Canoa...Lorena arranged for all of our travel into the cities and arranged our transportation to and from the airport in Manta! The staff were also super nice and friendly and made sure our apartment was very clean and towels and sheets... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hostal Amalur and had a great time. The owners were really nice people and gave us a lot of help in planning our stay not just in Canoa, but travelling further up the coast. The rooms are nice and clean and come with mosquito nets, and the bathrooms have hot water. There is a lavenderia... More

My friends and I somewhat randomly ended up in Canoa for the weekend and stumbled across Hostel Amalur. While we didn't have reservations, and the hostel was pretty much booked up, the owners went out of their way to accommodate us and were so friendly and professional our entire stay! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food at... More
