“Good cheap basic accommodation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Santiago and the crew ar very help, place was undergoing reno's when we were there so bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. Fun party hostel, cheap drinks and close to old town. Be earned, there is no party bus.. But you don't really miss it!

santjago the ower and his staff are very friendly but the hostel is verage. No character, a bit smelly and no comfort, the location is good when you like to stay in the new town, next time i would prefer to stay in the old town

I don't think you can expect much from a hostel in Ecuador so this one is more than enough for the price. Friendly helpful staff, basic but enough for breakfast, enough facilities, bathrooms could have a bit more privacy. Good water pressure and heat. Overall fairly happy.

We stayed here in November 2012 for over a week and it has a good relaxed feel to the place. We chose the room with the doublebed and as a result received eggs every morning. It has a Dvd player and pool table and bar and is located pretty centrally in thge "Gringo" district.

Value- great, location- great (Centro Nuevo), staff- excellent! I would really recommend this place - good idea to book in advance, especially if you are getting in on national holidays or high season.

The staff at this hostel are absolutely amazing. Super helpful. I really enjoyed that they let you hang out and use hostel facilities after the check out. Often you'll have a night bus and have to wait until 9-10pm and it's really nice to be able to hang out and use wifi and the kitchen. The hostel has really good common areas and a bar to hang out and meet people. They also have two big flat screen TVs for chill nights and new released movies.

If you are debating if you should stay in Centro Historico or Centro Nuevo - stay in Centro Nuevo and just go to Historico as a day trips, it's super cheap an easy by the bus (red line) that's located a block from the hostel. All the restaurants, bars and tour agencies are located in Centro Nuevo and the area is much more upscale and nice to be in.

I absolutely loved my stay at Vibes. We stayed for about 5 days before and after New Year's. Everyone was really friendly and the bar was always a good time at night. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are generally clean. Great location, close to la Mariscal. One of the best hostels I've come across in South America!

My friend and I stayed here for nearly four nights. The owner is so much fun, he assisted with everything from directions to local common sense. The hostel is safe, clean, and fun!
It is located very close to everything and gringolandia has lots of police for you to feel safe!
