The first night I stayed there I took a private room but with no private bathroom, which turned out to be an only cold water shower. When referring that to the reception they said: 'well, there is hot water only in the rooms with private bathrooms'. Later I took a room with a private bathroom for the hot water. There... More

I personally didn't have a great time at this hostel, we stayed 2 nights in early April when we passed through Guayaquil so there was no point in switching hostels. The atmosphere wasn't very welcoming, as the owner after checking us in quickly just sat around with his friend watching TV. The kitchen wasn't well equipped, or it wasn't at... More

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
