“* excellent hostel in ecuador”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2011

actually i stayed 1 week in this hostel. i supposed to stay 2 days but this hostel was so attractive- especially staffs was so kind. (they always care you but no bothering)
kitchen is convinient for using. and common room is enough for sharing information with other travellers.
i use sigle room include bathroom, it was just $7. and i can see great view in my room.
wifi was fast. everything was perfect,
i strongly recomend here.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

For $6 a night, I had a private room (double bed), cable TV and ensuite bathroom. The room and hospedaje are in excellent condition and very clean. The bed was comfortable - I never had such a good night sleep elsewhere during my trip.

In addition, there's free wifi, common lounge area where you can watch DVDs and communal kitchen. There's laundry service but there's a proper washing area if you want to do your own.

Location-wise, though not in central-central it's still within walking distance from the bus terminal (about 5-10 min) and to the central square (abt 2-3 min).

All in all, excellent value!
