Hostal Macaw is a small B&B run by one family. Their hospitality is superb and the rooms are clean and comfortable. They were extremely helpful with other travel plans as well. I would highly recommend a stay here!

A few people told us to be careful in Guayaquil which had us nervous but at this hotel we felt very safe and welcome. The rooms were spacious and very clean and the employees all very happy and helpful. We had to leave a little early for our flight in the morning so they even provided bagged breakfast for us...

Hostal Macaw was our first accommodation in Ecuador on a group trip. We arrived early and enjoyed the time on our own because Fanny and Rodrigo were so helpful and knowledgeable about Guayaquil and the surrounding area. And, our room was nice and the common areas exceptional.
