First, I was born and raised in Guayaquil--my house was 5 min from the location of Iguanazu so I felt the neighborhood was safe enough for this visit. We went to Guayaquil for an outpatient surgical procedure. We needed a place to rest for the post-op (5 days), yet close to the clinic which was located in the neighborhood of... More

I had a fabulous time, I traveled alone to attend a family wedding. I am not used to traveling alone and had reservations especially since I had never been to Ecuador. Needless to say I was so pleased of my accommodations and of the people that I met. I felt very safe, welcomed and relaxed. I napped which I never... More

This is a charming and beautiful old estate converted into a hotel. It is quiet, away from the crowded airport area. There is a pool, large veranda area, and private grounds to enjoy. There are some marvelous views, but I enjoyed the gigantic surrounding Mango trees the most. A short walk away you will find many restaurants with a variety... More

Wow! This is a wonderful hostal located close to everything without being in the busy, noisy, city. The hotel is perched on the side of a mountain and the views of the city are awesome. So peaceful and quiet. The beds were comfortable and the staff were so pleasant. There are lots of outside tables and sofas so you can... More

Extremely musty/moldy smelling rooms. Lobby is home to a stinky canine. No hand rails on the steep stone stairways - really dangerous. Old noisy wall ac units. Doesn't take credit cards - unless the owner is on the premises and then she might. But she charges a lot extra when she does.

We were only in Guayaquil for a night before flying out to the Galapagos. We'd arrived after a long bus ride from Banos without a reservation. Thankfully, they had a room for us. It was more expensive than other hostals in Ecuador, but maybe those are Guayaquil prices? It certainly had great amenities. The pool is delicious in the humid... More

Before arriving to Hostel Iguanazu from the mountains of Loja, I was already impressed by the presentation at the website and brochure photos, and an enthusiastic review from another traveler whom I had met briefly in Vilcabamba. When I arrived, at least from outer appearance, Iguanazu lived up to its reputation, and was quiet, and aesthetically pleasant. But this was... More

The hostal was very accomadating. The staff was very friendly, and always helpful. The Junior sute was very comfortable, and had a home-like feeling. The overall atmosphere was great. And Gacho, the resident bulldog was ridiculously cute, and friendly. I look forward to staying at Iguanazu again.
