This was our first hostel in ecuador, so we weren't sure on what to expect. We got in late, and the worker had no problems accommodating us. Not much to say about the place, so I'll just get into the pro and con list. PROS Huge pool, + Free, decent breakfast + Reasonable location for access to Malacone and area... More

Nice pool, nice rooms, nice staff (very helpful). Good wifi, good hot water. Definitely a great place to stay. Kitchen is really well equipped, free selection of spices thrown in and free purified water which is a nice change than forking out for bottled agua constantly.

We got to Guayaquil and when we called them they were able to accommodate us at the last minute. The staff are friendly and breakfast was good. They also have good security. Shopping centre was only a couple of blocks away. The downside was our room. We got a room with bunk beds and the fan was a small one... More

I stayed here on two separate occasions and was pleased both times. The staff is super helpful and the hostel as a whole is kept really clean. It was so nice to have a pool to swim in as well on sunny days! The kitchen is fully equipped and the included breakfast was delicious and filling. It's located in a... More

Nucapacha is your average hostel of pretty good value. The service was good, the breakfast basic (scrambled egg, two slices white toast, one cup coffee). There was an excellent swimming pool the two times I visited, but the 2nd time two young boys using the pool were noisy and out of control and I avoided it. The location is just... More

This hostel is in a good central location to get to grocery store, ATM and restaurants. They have keep up the garden and pool. I found the front desk and the owner very helpful and friendly. I found the kitchen staff to be not friendly and in fact was rude to several of the clients. Maybe a miscommunication but I... More

I spent 5 months in Ecuador and Nuca was the very first place I stayed. It's in a great location and the staff went above and beyond to help me with my visa, recommending places to visit, and generally helping me to settle in. I was there for three nights on my first visit, and went back several times. It... More
