It is a bit far off the centre, but this is reached easy by bus (number 52). The hostel is great, with a good breakfast, fantastic wifi and an amazing pool. The rooms are very big, but it is crazily hot at night. Luckily the hostel provide fans in the rooms. Also there is a bar, where you can purchase... More

I began coming to Nuca Pacha in 2014 after travelling through most of Ecuador. I had seen many hostels, hotels and otherwise and when I discovered this gem I was massively happy! It's location is a big draw for me: located in the beautiful district of Urdesa,  Guayaquil. The staff here are absolutely awesome!...happy people that are attracted to a... More

Nucapacha has a nice pool as well as a good equipped kitchen with free drinking water (Guayaquil is very hot so you have to drink a lot!). They serve a decent breakfast. The staff always gave me good information. I used Guayaquil as base to explore the south of Ecuador and left some of my stuff in their storeroom for... More

This place was recommended to me by airport information desk and only a $5 taxi ride away to a nice peaceful neighborhood of restaurants and markets. The poolside bar sold really cheap beers and many were using their laptops on the poolside patio. There also was a computer available inside. I had a private room upstairs with a bath and... More

We quite enjoyed this place. It had a nice relaxed atmosphere and the pool was a nice touch. Good value for money especially with breakfast included. The internet was average and did not reach our room. Staff were friendly, kitchen was good. At one point we needed something printed and this could not be done due to the printer apparently... More

Great neighbourhood and close to many cute bars and conveniences. The room was clean and safe and the hostel staff were really helpful too! Unfortunately the pool was closed when we were there, but I imagine it's PERFECT for a dip when the weather is so hot!

I was in the city for business and decided to try a hostel for a change. The room was basic but clean, the internet worked fairly well, the beer was cold and well priced, didn't get a chance to go into the pool but it was big, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful when I wanted directions around the...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights just passing through Guayaquil. We stayed in a double room with its own bathroom. The hostel itself has a good vibe, friendly people and within easy walking distance to supermarkets and the main street where you can find some good restaurants (some terrible ones too, avoid Fanaticos, unless you want salt...

Guayaquil was our first stop in Ecuador and this hostel didn't welcome us in the slightest! The room was appalling, poorly lit and smelt of drains. The beds were old and didn't seem clean. The staff weren't overly friendly and when we asked for another cofffee at breakfast we felt like it was far too much to ask! There was... More

Dear Emma. I am truly sorry for making you get the worst impression of our city. I have located the room you guys were and we are looking into the smell you mention, although i am surprise of the old beds since the matresses are pretty new and the beds are constantly under maintenance, still we take very serious this...
