the hostel is clean, staff is very friendly and breakfast is very good. If you are looking for a place to just sleep and would like to wander around the city all day, this is the perfect place to stay!!. The location is close to the malecon and 2 blocks from the iguana Plaza. Very good relation price-quality.

The people, service, breakfast, .. Everything is perfect. things are done... More

A very nice and friendly place. Just across the road is a supermarket and guests have use of the kitchen which was great when it poured with rain and we didn't want to venture out to find a restaurant.

Great staff, good breakfast and very well maintained property with air conditioned in the middle of Guayaquil. There are lots of restaurants nearby. The river is just 4 blocks away. It is 2 blocks from the giant cathedral and iguana park. Cool city. Lots going on.

This place was awesome. The staff were very friendly and had many recommendations. The breakfast was good - toast and eggs with different jams. The rooms were nice with AC and a great shower (especially coming from 1 month in Peru). There was also a kitchen which was we used to prepare dinner one night. A large grocery store was... More

An apartment right in the center of Guayaquil, close to the Malecon. You can walk towards the colourful colonial neighbourhood Las Penas, its just a 20 min walk. The reception of the Casa is on another floor than the apartment, you get a key for the building enterance. Really nice people work there, they sell excellent unique trendy t-shirts. They... More

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, though bathroom without window/aircon leads to mould, breakfast ok. Located very central. Windows are thin and Guayaquil is a loud city. Even at night... For an overnight stay it's quite ok.

I stayed there during in the last days of August, 2014 and another night after returning from Santa Cruz. Upon booking my room I received an email from the hostel offering the airport pick up - take it! It will save you time and headaches and you will be perfectly safe. The hotel is clean, the staff goes out of... More

OK for overnight. Very near the boardwalk, which is a nice place to spend some time. Room and bathroom needed upgrade. Staff was friendly. They arrange for a trusted taxi driver to pick us up at 3:00 am and even accompanied us down the building to the cab.
