When I first arrived, I was happy enough. I tried the Blue House next door first, but they were full, so I settled on the Galapagos next door. I stayed for 5 days ... and paid in advance. The owners don't speak English, but with a translator, I was assured there was lots of hot water in the showers. There... More

This was my first experience of Ecuador - and well a little scary :) No english spoken here - except by the daughter. The older couple definitely tried to be nice, but not exactly party people... You have to be buzzed in and out every time, which I guess is good for security, but to be honest is a bit... More

No lockers! Comfy beds, not bunk so you wont hit your head. Showers were good aand warm. Wifi is ok, only reaches in the dining room downstairs. Breakfast was great, hostel was clean enough. There was a huge issue with leaving our bags at the hostel and hanging out until 8pm, but eventually the old couple let us do it,... More

Serious faces if you check the rooms before booking, after you say yes you get a smile. Breakfast is perfect!! The 'mom' of the house is very kind, but when you meet the daughter, then things are too difficult! Please find a job somewhere else and let your parents run the business!! Rooms are ok, not very special and the... More

The family that run the place is really nice and is doing everything they could to help you and to make you feel as at home. The breakfast is really... More

We arrived at 1am and there was surprisingly a half an hour of traffic just in the surrounding 3 blocks due to it being party central for locals and Gringos. The immediate area was not too threatening like people seemed to hint at. The hostel itself is safe and only open by buzzer once they confirm your identity and room... More

Good points: Clean hostal and good beds. Skinny breakfast Bad points: Staff was really unpleasant and indicated prices are not true. Skinny breakfast. I understand now why it's the only hostal of the street with available room after 15 p.m . Next time i'll go in its neighbor.
