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.

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
