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...

My traveling partner and I stayed here for one night while on our way to Galapagos. It was lovely, staff were friendly and helpful. We had a room on the ground floor near reception so was a bit noisy and I think there were better rooms, but we were ok. We didn't eat there as we left before breakfast and... More

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.

Booked by email and received prompt and helpful info back from owner. Only stayed one night but staff were very welcoming and even made me a breakfast box for my early start to airport which is a 5 min taxi ride. The hostel was very clean and comfortable and there was a big shopping mall in walking distance with lots... More

My wife and I stayed at the Macaw transiting in and out of Ecuador in December 2015. The location is great - a 20 min drive from the airport, though we weren't conscious of any airport noise. The whole place was very clean and tidy with character afforded by the timber doors and fittings. The breakfast is legendary - great... More

We stayed in a ground floor room with 3 people for two nights at the beginning of our trip in December and for one night at the end of our Ecuador trip in January. This is a delightful place run by a husband and wife, Fanny and Rodrigo. The place is maintained impeccably, the shower is great, the room had... More

Spacious room, air conditioned and spotlessly clean. Very friendly staff and a nice cooked and continental breakfast available. There is a nice courtyard to relax in and wifi is available in the foyer. You do need taxi to get you to the sights but there is a great locals fish restaurant round the corner if you fancy eating locally

They take such pride in the hotel and their service. Very professional. Although out of town a little, it is a short walk to a major shopping mall and only a $5 taxi to town. Some of the staff spoke little to no English but the owners were mostly around so we made sure we grabbed them for info and... More
