I only had the brief pleasure of spending one night here arriving late via bus before an early flight so I sadly missed breakfast. I stayed in a private room en-suite and the room was tidy, had a fan and a great shower. Both members of staff who I met were very friendly and it is an ideal location for... More

Stayed in the DreamKapture Hostel for one night whilst stopping in Guayaquil and it was a pretty pleasant place with clean and tidy dorms, the dorm I was in had fans in too which was great as it would have been so humid without! The breakfast is decent too with scrambled eggs, toast and jam, juice and a nice coffee.... More

Friendly staff. The rooms and bathrooms are clan, good wi-fi. Is a quite hostel, good to relax. Breakfast includes eggs, juice, french toasts. The only downside is bits location, 30 minutes by bus from the center.

From the money grubbing manager who talks down to everyone and yells at his staff to the "pool" that is more like a fountain than an actual pool - and sits right next to a cage of birds and iguanas so when it rains the guano flows right in to the pool (I saw no one get in this gross... More

arrived at the hostel and already the feeling wasn´t very home-like. breakfast is an egg with two toasts and if you want more you have to pay. book exchange costs money (what!?!). If you want to stay at the hostel after 5pm on your checkout day, for example you have a night bus, you have to pay. kitchen is lacking... More

The aircondition was really noisy, so i couldnt have it on while I was sleeping because the sound was really loud. The breakfast is not good.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, once in room 12 and another in 13. No issues and everything was just fine. Staff were friendly and spoke English. Breakfast was great, scrambled eggs one morning and french toast with fruit the next. Easy 5$ taxi ride to bus terminal/airport which was priority for us. Would stay here again!

This hostel is located in a neighbourhood quite far away from the centre but can easily be reached from the airport and bus station by taxi. I liked that the hostel provided a Spanish description of how to get there that you can give to your taxi driver. Also the communication beforehand was great and very informative. There's a fairly...

Spent three days while visiting Guayaguil. Our room with AC was great . Soft sheets, comfortable beds.CLEAN. The free breakfast was delicious. The Owner, Marie, went out of her way to help us as we could speak very little Spanish. She arranged an affordable sight seeing tour, called taxis for us and explained where we were going and made sure... More
