“best little sleepy beach hostel in ecuador”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Ayampe is a special town - small, undeveloped, beautiful empty beaches, great surf, and three places with excellent coffee! Hostal Los Orishas is 40 yards from the beach and has a handful of small clean comfortable rooms surrounded by hammocks and fronted by an open air restaurant that serves delicious italian food and coffee and good mojitos at a most reasonable cost. We had an amazing week.

We stayed here for three nights in an upstairs room and really loved it. The room was clean and comfortable, with a nice bathroom. The view to the beach is a little restricted but it is nevertheless a little oasis with a great vibe and the beach is just around the corner. The Italian owners are very friendly, the food at the restaurant is delicious.

It is difficult to find local food in Ayampe and hostals and restaurants (serving tourists only) have prices that were well above what we were used to in Ecuador - just a note!

I was here for a month and a bit working over the internet, learning how to surf, and hanging out with the amazing hosts Gabi and Marco. The rooms are great, good water pressure and hot water in the shower and the over all vibe of the place is very peaceful and welcoming. During my stay they had their families visiting from Quito and Italy and they all treated me like I was the long lost cousin, what a great time! I would recommend a stay here for anyone who wants to unwind a bit, have some italian food and maybe a surf in the ocean 200 meters away. I can't wait to go back!

We lodged at los Orishas for more than a week in August 2011. The hostal is very close to the beach (so close that we could hear the waves of the ocean from bed... amazing) and is located just in front of the laguna in Ayampe, a very small and quiet pueblo near the "city" of Puerto Lopez. The rooms are clean and cozy and the staff, Gabi, Marco and Giuseppe, is very friendly. Last but not least: great food!!
