Me and my 2 year old daughter spent the night in Dreamkapture while visiting a friend in Guayaquil. I was very impressed with everything. From the excellent service, to the very nice air conditioned room, the large comfortable bed, the lovely little swimming pool, and the delicious breakfast. This hostel will be our regular stomping ground whenever we visit Guayaquil.

Ah. The moment you realise you are too backer-y for a backpacker hostel. We have been travelling for about 9 months through central and South America and we are used to private rooms being cheaper than this place. I can only put it down to the fact that people who are not skint backpackers like ourselves stay here for a... More

Arrived early in the morning from Peru to find that my girlfriend (who'd arrived from Colombia) had already been checked into the room. What a pleasure of 2 days on buses. Staff were super friendly and hugely helpful. Loved the breakfast - now that's quality and value for money. Location: located near to some local restaurants and take-aways and also... More

Stayed here after flying from Galapagos before heading into Peru. It was safe and had a good breakfast included in the price. WiFi worked well but the room was very small for 2 people. It served our needs.

Good hostel for a 1 night stopover on route to Montanita/Galapagos. Very good directions from the airport and 24 hour reception is very useful. Bed was comfortable but mosquito nets would be very useful, and it was very hot in the room (I had a room with a fan). Nice free breakfast and very good staff on the reception desk,... More

We only stayed a night after arriving late from the Galápagos. The hostel is fine, secure and clean. Pancakes for breakfast, who could complain about that. There is a small dip pool to chill out in with a beer and hammocks peppered all over the hostel.

This hostel was good, the facilities weren't super new but it was nice. The free breakfast was good, with coffee, juice, eggs and toast. The staff were helpful but the location is a bit away from the city centre.

Friendly welcome, and good clean private rooms. Great social areas and reasonable breakfast. We were only there for a quick overnight before heading to the Galapagos, but we found it very difficult to find somewhere nearby to eat. Fine if you are meat eater, but not for this veggie. Ending up in a shopping mall eating Subway! Less than ideal.

Things I liked were that they served breakfast, and they didn't serve the same thing every day. They let me check-in early and the rooms were clean. It is a cute hostel with the animals and pool and the safety and security seemed good. Something a bit strange was that when I asked if the area they instructed me to... More
