After we landed in Guayaquil, the taxi brought us for 5 dollars to the hostel. The hostel is situated in the center of the city, on the 7th Floor. (Elevator available) We arrived around 3 AM in the night, but that wasn't a problem as we warned them. Our luggage was still in Miami. The staff of the hostel helped... More

Centrally located in the DT area. Hostel situated in a high rise apartment building so the security is awesome and the view good. The sign is a little hard to notice next to the front door, could be bigger! We only stayed for one night in a private room with AC (very important for AC) room was clean, beds where... More

We stayed a total of 9 days at different times in a period of 3 weeks. We stayed in the 3rd and the 7th floor. No differences. We always returned because they made us feel home. The rooms are excellent and especially very clean. Breakfast is excellent too. The location makes you feel being a local. No better way to... More

The office is situated on the 7th floor. Our room was on the 3rd floor of this high rise building. It is rather unorthodox as far as previous experiences go, but it really seems to work. The two ladies at the reception were rather helpful and efficient. They assisted with travel arrangements and answered a host of questions. The room... More

We stayed here for a short stay while in transit to the Galapagos. The hostel is quite nice but on the busy main street behind a locked gate, which makes it seem a bit of a dangerous area. The hostel kindly arranged an airport pickup which was good as we had heard a lot of bad things about the city... More

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.

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.
