The hostel sent me an email the day before of my arrival to inform me that there was a problem with the rate in booking website...

This place is awfull, the rooms are not so good, and, the worst thing of all, the staff is very rude and never helps you with anything. I wouldn't reccomend this place to anybody. People should think twice before of make a reservation here

Perfekt lokation if you are taking a flight to the Galapagos. It Is close to the AirPort and Close to the busstation. The rooms are clean and the beds are fine. It is quiet so it is easy to sleep. There is not much to do here but for one night it is perfekt!

I have been there for 1 night cause I had a flight the next morning. It is very close to the airport which is great, you can walk to the airport. They offer Hotel rooms and they do have a dorm. Never ever sleep in the dorm. I have chosen the dorm and I have been there alone. You have... More

I made a reservation at the Murali Hostal via email about a month in advance, and received a confirmation. A couple of days prior to arrival I sent Murali Hostal another email just as a reminder, and got a confirmation again. On my arrival, they had my reservation in their book, but no room was available. If you read the... More

We have enjoyed staying at the Murali Hostal near the Guayaquil airport several times. We have also had friends stay here with satisfactory results. HOWEVER, for the second time this year I had made a reservation by phone and upon arrival was told there was no room available. This last time we were shuttled to one of the owner's hostals... More

Murali was our 'base camp' while we visited Ecuador for 12 days. When we were in Guayaquil the staff at Murali made us feel like we were at home. They graciously waited on us and although we could speak NO Spanish, we always were able to communicate. The location was very convenient to the airport and bus station which was... More

We stayed at this hotel twice, when arriving and leaving Ecuador, and were pretty satisfied both times. Since we were traveling with our cat, we needed a place that was pet-friendly, and they were happy to accommodate us. The rooms were clean and quiet, and the AC worked great. The location is super-convenient to the airport, and they provide a... More

At first we thought it was a bit pricy but it was worth every penny! We only stayed for one night to catch a flight the next morning. The hostel, which is more like a hotel, is perfectly located close to the airport. The room we stayed in was spacious, had air condition, bathroom and was really clean. The bed... More

Thanks to the good advice and recommendation of one of the Airport information staff, i found Murali, it's located just a walking distance from there, unless you come full of luggage, you won't need a cab to get there, once there, it's a hostel with the comfort of a hotel, because I'm backpacking I always take the dorms, but they...
