I stayed at E.Gwada for two separate single nights in February while traveling through Guadeloupe. The hostel provides a pick up service for traveling back and forth to the airport. I enjoyed talking with fellow travelers there. Freddo and Malta (staff) treated me like a friend and it was appreciated. I would return again.

I stayed there for about a month last year. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The host took several tours with us and helped us to get to know the island. We are absolutely thrilled by Guadeloupe and the service offered for a relatively cheap price.

Our mistake: We booked this hostel before reading the reviews. Anyway, as we could not cancel, we arrived and we found ourselves around people that do not know how to welcome you, they are not professionals and they are totally bored. After leaving our things inside, we went to grub a pizza to eat as we were pretty hungry after... More

We stayed at the E. Gwada Hostel twice in January 2014. We occupied a single room for a couple. It was outstanding. I would stay at this hostel again without question. The manager is over the top with his attitude and helpfulness. He is very fluent in English. Travelocity screwed up one of our reservations and the hostel was jam... More

This Hostel welcomes you in a familiar atmosphere where you feel home immediately. The Prices are low and the Service was good, we were very satisfied with our stay there. Recommendable for every traveler who likes to get to know new People and enjoy a natural and friendly atmosphere with a beautiful view over the sea and the neighbouring Island.

My experience at E.Gwada hostel was an amazing one. The staff at E. Gwada made it feel like home. At E Gwada the staff is very friendly and helpful. They allowed two members of their staff to accompany us on our various outings as translators. This was very helpful due to the language barrier. The rooms at E Gwada were... More

E. Gwada was a great place to stay, especially if you are on a budget for a large amount of people. The atmosphere is quiet and you have privacy. You have the option of having breakfast and/or dinner made by the staff. You also have the choice to have A/C in your comfortable room on the upstairs floor, but downstairs... More

My experience at E.Gwada hostel was amazing. The main thing I loved was Jean's hospitality. He is an amazing chef and the entire staff was very kindhearted. The staff gave us two translators,which was vert generous of them. My stay at E.Gwada was excellent. All in all, the experience at E.Gwada was marvelous.
