We organized our Galapagos cruise through Dreamkapture. They have an excellent and well structured website. Their communication was professional and prompt and the documents were clear. However, their main message is that very cheap last minute cruises don't exist or are not attractive. This appears not to be true. We were just on the Galapagos in August 2014 having paid... More

The hostel is in a really good location especially for those who are staying overnight for connecting flights and buses. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless and the kitchen is well equipped and again clean. The breakfast is good and most of the staff are very friendly. The hostel can lack atmosphere but this is more due to the fact... More

I didn't even stay here as despite being a female traveller on my own and arriving in Guayquil at 2.30am, they didn't answer the door. When I called, the guy who answered said they had no reservation in my name and hung up, knowing I was standing outside in the street. I did see a missed call later, which to... More

I stayed here for 1 night a few days dog while transiting through Guayaquil. The hostel is really close to the bus station and airport, just 5USD for each taxi trip. I was greeted by 2 of the staff when I arrived and shown around. The staff were welcoming and went out of their way to answer some questions I... More

Stayed in the dormitory of 6, the place was immaculate clean, hot water and staff was friendly. The breakfast was excellent considering that they change it every other day, one day eggs next day had French toast, coffee or tea AND juice :) the only downside is that they charge $5 a week to hold your belongings while u go...

I was a bit sceptical of this hostel as there were so many bad reviews but I thought it was great. I arrived at Guayaquil airport and emailed them from there, got a response immediately. The courtyard is great, plenty of plants and singing birds.

We were there before we traveled to the Galapagos. We booked online the private room which was perfect, very clean comfort and the air conditioner was awesome. The price is a little high so we had to move to the dorms. The dorms are separate males/females so if you are couple it's not the best. Breakfast is really tasty and... More

What a disenchantment after all the lovely pousadas in the highlands. This hostel is faceless and demure. The staff had a had time smiling from time to time and messed up our booking when we came back after two weeks. Since they had not reserved a proper room for us we had to sleep in a freshly painted and smelly... More
