Comfortable, affordable, clean, with a beach cabaña vibe. Just looking at this place you can feel yourself start to relax. The food is great but you definitely have to try the blended iced coffee. Better than Starbucks at half the price.

While visiting Bahia, Ecuador I stayed two nights at the Hostel Coco Bongo. The main downtown shopping area is just two blocks away. The hostel is across the street from Bahia's most beautiful palm lined park. Staying there was quiet and comfortable. Also, the food was great. They serve both American and Ecuadorian breakfasts and real Italian pizza. There is... More

As soon as I arrived in Coco Bongo I was made to feel very welcome. The location was really good and it was great to sit outside, have a cold beer and a chat. I shared a dorm room which was clean but, unfortunately, had to leave too early to have breakfast the next morning. I would definitely recommend it.

Great americana... More

I was so happy with this place! The staff is extremely friendly, the hostel was clean, they had hot water and there is a nice little porch you can chill out on. The atmosphere is great with bright colors and tasteful decor. There are tiny lock boxes in the rooms for a passport/money. The location is good and the hostel... More
