I chose this hostel because it was cheaper than the others and was in a good location. That said, a lot of times you get what you pay for when paying less and this was no exception. The staff was friendly enough, but the breakfast was meager even by South American standards, overall the cleanliness might not work for the faint of heart (though they were repainting during my stay), the beds were pretty worn, and it can get really loud at night with the pack of barking dogs which live on the corner. It was not without its merits however: close to the shenanigans on Ecuador, cheap drinks, good locale, on site laundry, wifi throughout the hostal, and a really good vibe.
