The dorms were hot. We stayed here because it was close to the airport. The common area was nice. The front desk guy was friendly. We walked to a restaurant and the streets were dark so although it was likely safe, it was difficult to feel comfortable in the area.

Clean rooms, air conditioning works and convenient for close to airport stay. No hot water at all. TripAdvisor states it supplies free breakfast but we were then told in the morning that it would cost $5USD per person which we declined.

Rooms were nicely air conditioned in the humidity of guayaquil and beds were very comfy. Absolutely impossible to find, there are no signs up anywhere and you have to ring the doorbell to get in. Showers were cold- we managed as it was quite nice in the heat to have a cold shower but if we'd stayed longer than a... More

This place is awfull, the rooms are not so good, and, the worst thing of all, the staff is very rude and never helps you with anything. I wouldn't reccomend this place to anybody. People should think twice before of make a reservation here

Perfekt lokation if you are taking a flight to the Galapagos. It Is close to the AirPort and Close to the busstation. The rooms are clean and the beds are fine. It is quiet so it is easy to sleep. There is not much to do here but for one night it is perfekt!

I made a reservation at the Murali Hostal via email about a month in advance, and received a confirmation. A couple of days prior to arrival I sent Murali Hostal another email just as a reminder, and got a confirmation again. On my arrival, they had my reservation in their book, but no room was available.

We have enjoyed staying at the Murali Hostal near the Guayaquil airport several times. We have also had friends stay here with satisfactory results. HOWEVER, for the second time this year I had made a reservation by phone and upon arrival was told there was no room available. This last time we were shuttled to one of the owner's hostals... More
