A really lovely relaxing hostel.The staff were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful art in the hostel aswell.The best breakfast we had on all of our trip along the coast of Ecuador. Thanks very much!🙂
We had an amazing stay at Coco Bongo Hostel. All the rooms are painted with these incredible murals! There is a lounge to have a beer at night and in the mornings you can take breakfast on the patio with view on the park across the street. The food is delicious. The pizzas are very original and breakfast is exactly what you need to start a day at the beach, which is only a five minute walk away. Thanks Coco Bongo and Catfish!
Had the pleasure of enjoing this black bean burger with crunchy & chunky fries Just right! Made with a lot of love and attention In the beautifully paintend open patio Good food. Good atmosphere. Great company What a perect way to have lunch!
I can't fault this place and nor do I want to. Amazing food especially the pizza. Great coffee. Really interesting decor in the restaurant/ bar downstairs. Huge bedroom with the best bathroom I've seen in a hostel and the entire building is earthquake proof. Best of all the friendly, helpful staff. I'd recommend this place to anyone. And a massive shout out to Sean and Catfish. They give Coco Bongo it's heart and soul.
You are right in the middle of everything at Coco Bongo. The room are all remodeled and really nice. The food, the different coffees and teas, the deserts. The owner has the culinary skills that are so unique, you feel like your eating at a 5 Star restaurant. My wife Annabelle and I will most certainly return.
