My son and I stayed here one night prior to flying back home to the U.S. The staff were quite friendly and helpful. The rooms have names, and we stayed in "Ginger". Nice large room with a view. It had a large bathroom, nice furnishings, cable TV, and very effective air conditioner. Our room was set up with a single... More

-I stayed there for 4 or 5 nights, I can't remember exactly the amount since I had to cancell some nights due to a sudden trip to Cuenca. -I stayed in their shared room for men, so maybe my opinion could differ from others. -The personnel really desire to help guests, they're mostly young locals working part-time. It was my... More

Dear Chocolate: Thanks for your kind comments about our staff. I am kind of worried about your remark about the couple in the upper bunk bed. I read that your stay was in September 2013 but your comment is from 3 days ago. Would you be so kind to let us know when did you stay with us? We need... More

In a nice safe area along the riverbank, close to sights and shopping. Staff is helpful and there is a computer for guests to use. Two vegetarian entrees offered: quinoa burger and lentil burger. $5 taxi to airport. Walk to the "iguana park" but don't walk under the trees as you might get "rained on!" Was in the women's dorm...

A beautiful hostel. Ideally located on the Malecon, this hostel offers a nice atmosphere, with lots of colours, stylish decoration and a boutique. Extra clean and with AC, which is quite useful with muggy Guayaquil. Complimentary breakfast was really very good.

Stayed here for two days and it was the perfect location. Close to the airport and bus station. Really safe. Right beside the water, walking distance to las penas and beautiful buildings and churches. Complimentary breakfast was delicious. Serving eggs to order and fresh juice. Have vegetarian lunch and dinner options. Staff was friendly. Only downside was it was a... More

We took the 'white room' which was really big and beautiful! Huge shower and great bed. The hostel itself is beautiful and has really atmosphere. Location is excellent-right in front of the boardwalk and in a good safe area. Very much recommended!

Air conditioning, quiet and comfortable rooms, squeaky clean, cheap food and friendly service - what more could you want? Located right on the Malecon this hostel is just perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Loved Manso! We only stayed for one night, but they had all the amenities that we needed. We had an early flight to catch, and they were overly compensating and packed us a breakfast to take with us. It was a simple cheese sandwich, apple and juice, but the fact that they went out of their way to pack it... More

This hostel made a good impression on us from the moment we arrived. The man working at the desk picked up both of our 55 lb suitcases and carried them upstairs for my friend and I. Although we arrived at 5 a.m. and we were too early for check-in (which is around 2 p.m.) they got us a room as... More

I booked Manso with Expedia - rather inexpensively - and just one day before check-in, I read the fine print and realized that what I thought was a great promotional rate would entitle us, two adults, to an "economy room with single bed and shared bathroom"... We were fully prepared to see how bad it was and pay for an... More
