Very basic but good if you are coming from or have the next day a flight/bus somewhere, as it is close to both the airport and the bus terminal. We stayed there one night after a bus ride from Peru and before a morning bus ride to Montañita. Shower doesn't have hot water but it's hot enough outside.

This was an ok hostel. We stayed here for one night as we were getting connecting flights to the Galaopgos. The hostel was basic enough. Room are only ok but do the trick for a one night stopover. In fairness the prices were cheap. The owner was also nice and help us print out our tickets for the flight and... More

This is the perfect hostel if you are arriving late or departing early from the airport or bus terminal. An easy taxi ride after dark, or walk if you are feeling up to it. The staff is great, rooms are everything you need...bed, towel, bathroom with warm water. The hostel is safe and only 1 block from a huge shopping... More

This simple hostel has a good location with its proximity to the airport, the bus terminal and a big shopping mall. It is very useful for short stays in Guayaquil. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are okay for a short stay.

Stayed here three nights. Very nice location within walking distance of airport (15 mins) and new bus terminal (30 mins). Big shopping centre just around the corner for those that prefer to do grocery shopping and cook their own meals in the kitchen (small but sufficient to get cooking done). Quiet neighbourhood and English-speaking owner make it a practical stop-over... More

I was looking for a hostel close to the airport and to the bus Terminal, and of course with a good environment, good price and in a safe place. I found it. It is called the Funky Monkey hostal. IT seems that this hostal is related to the one in Montanita. So I would definitively recomment it !

I wasn't expecting much of this hostel due to the reviews. I only stayed the night, less than 12 hours but for a stopover from the airport or bus station it's perfect! Good wifi, I was in the 4 bed dorm which has plenty of space, a fan and a comfy and clean bed. My taxi driver did have trouble... More

We stayed here for 1 night before our Galápagos flight and had been travelling for 2 days so just wanted some sleep. The receptionist and his friends were playing music and laughing/ talking loudly until 2am - it's. Small place so you can hear everything. Around 4am who I assume we're more friends began banging on the door outside, ringing... More

I am used to budget hostels but we found this exceptionally basic. The bunk beds were very uncomfortable, the one fan in the room did nothing to keep it cool. Although there is wifi there are no computers or communal areas. We found the owner of the hostel was not very accomodating, we asked for a map, which he didnt... More

The hostel is very basic. No computer area no breakfast, basic kitchen.. The owner wasn't so nice to us although we came 4 and asked to stay for few nights when he didn't really had much work anyway.. We didn't like him! And it was quite expensive . The only really good thing about the hostel is that it's close... More
