I just visited Mompiche in February. The Hosteria Gabeal was recommended by my great uncle who lives in Quito. It was a nice hostel, located at the end of Hostel Row. It had a lot of space and was a great price. Myself and my friend had a two bed private room with private bathroom for only $10 per person... More

We try very harder to make a reservation by phone, mail, facebook several times, without any answer. A couple of days before arriving Mompiche they answered the phone, and told us that the only reservation way was make a bank transfer...impossible for a non-local. So, we decide to go directly to Gabeal a couple of minutes after reaching Mompiche. Once... More

I stayed only one night at Gabeal and overall it was a very good experience. The room was clean and had a great little porch with hammocks. The space is great--- very spread out in a town that has areas with many hostels in a small area. There are many hammocks and tables on the beach front to enjoy the... More

This place is a gem! Clean rustic rooms (the shower water is a bit salty, but hey--it is the beach!), excellent beach front hammocks and evening beach bar with quality offerings and very fun folks. Come here to chill out and kick off the shoes. While there, Spend a morning visiting nearby Portete (an island a short ways away). WOW

For you Gringos out there who are not familiar with the Spanish word "hay", here's a quick Spanish lesson. Hay translates to "there is", "no hay" translates to there is not. It's a very useful word, and one we encountered almost everyday at Hosteria Gabeal. My husband and I try not to expect Four Season accommodations when traveling through the... More

The private ensuite rooms are incredibly cheap, and get cleaned often. Such a nice atmosphere and environment with a bar on the beach and really friendly staff. The hostel welcomes all sorts of travellers from young budget, to older couples and even families. Its a great getaway, though there is not much in the town if you are looking for... More

Located on the beach Hosteria Gabeal caters to individuals, couples and groups. They have daily cleaning service and comfortable rooms for the price. The restaurant offers typical Esmeraldas cuisine, however it is not the best in town. It is currently expanding and will no doubt be the star hostel in Mompiche. This hostel has an outdoor bar, music and a... More

Gabeal is a great hostel with nice rooms and good service. I've gone several times, throughout the span of around 10 years, and will be going back as soon as I get the chance! The staff are nice and always willing to help. They are sometimes not at the main desk, but it's because they're helping someone out with something.... More
