Traveled with a group of friends; we arrived exhausted after a long drive.Owner Jaime and his assistant Josue were welcoming and had our rooms ready, that felt good... but they forgot the tissue paper for my bathroom and it took a while to receive it. The owner recommended a simple restaurant nearby, and saw to it that the car was... More

Stayed on the way to Peru. Clean room, WiFi, hot shower and air conditioning. The area is not touristy, but most of the locals are friendly. Close to the airport. Really nice staff who even got up at 3.30am to see us safely to our taxi. Recommend a stay here.

Clean rooms, good size, with nice bathrooms. The hostal is well-priced, close to the airport, but not in a great neighborhood. The hostal owners are very friendly and willing to call you a cab to wherever you need to go, but do not speak much English, so I would anticipate it could be hard to communicate your needs without much...

The guest house is less than ten mins in the car from the airport which is why I chose it. It's basic but serves its purpose well. I needed a place to stay overnight, arriving at the airport night and leaving in the morning. The guest house organized an airport pick up which was great since finding the house can... More

We stayed here for two days - the night before leaving to Galapagos Islands, and the night before heading back to the United States. The guest house is a great location if you want to be close to the airport since it is a 5 minute drive. The cost for the taxi is $5 each way. We always brought a... More

We came from Cuenca to get to the airport here in Guayaquil. My husband and I were very pleased when they greeted us and showed us to our room way earlier than check in time. The hosts are friendly and speak pretty good English. Food at breakfast is simple, but good. Staff is great. The room is clean and simple... More

The rather difficult to find door on a small street opens up to a surprisingly modern home. We were the only guests, but I expect the noise level would be high from guests coming and going. Certainly the door bell resounded throughout the house. The enclosed parking as promised turned out to be not so enclosed with an asleep guard... More

I've stayed twice at the Tabuba Guest House, and I'm about to arrange another stay for my wife and children over the Christmas break. The operators (Jamie and Vanessa) really care about their guests, making sure that you enjoy your stay. The rooms are very clean, roomy, and well equipped with adequate linens, cable TV, internet and AC. There is... More

After spending the past 1 and 1/2 years traveling outside of Ecuador, there is sincerely nothing more refreshing than returning to a place where you feel cared for and safe and just totally relaxed. In Guayaquil that place is Tabuba. Since my first stay with them over two years ago, I have been back 4 times. Each time, everyone at... More

This is my second review. The first was written practically hours before my second trip to Ecuador. I was to stay in this guest house for the second time. I thought that all had been checked - the hostal, the pick up driver, etc.I thought those people reliable, which is why I booked my second stay and made sure that... More
