Our family of 4 stayed here in for one night, On the plus side,,,the rooms were clean, the beds comfortable. It is a little hard to find, even for the cab driver...once there, however it is relatively close to everything. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the main square and closer to the river. It is quiet and small...if you want a lively atmosphere there are other options in town. The owners are very sweet...they are still renovating many parts of the historic villa so, there was some minor work going on when we were there. The garden in the courtyard is lovelyThe internet is free and reliable.
On the down side...for a hostel (in Ecuador) it was a little pricey...and while we were supposed to have our own bathroom (shared between the 4 of us)...we did not. Also, we were charged extra for a so-so breakfast which was supposed to be included in the price of the room.We would have breakfasted elsewhere had we known we would be charged.
Quite a few Spanish students were staying here...it is probably a good deal for an extended stay. However for a short visit, I would recommend staying closer into town--it appeared there were other options at about the same price point.
BTW we are fluent in Spanish so language is not an issue but, many of the English only guests had a hard time communicating and asked us to translate as only one of the owners speaks passable English...and she is not there all the time
