Nice place, travel service disappointing. I only stayed there to get some last minute tips to galapagos, but was told to just check the webpage - not very helpful when you are about to travel and thus no internet. Dorm had too few power sockets and beds not great. BReakfast delicious but small. All in all it was fine but slightly high price all things considered. Think it said there was a pool but didn't see any except something that looked like a little fish pond without fish.no aircon in dorm
We had such a wonderful experience at Dreamkapture. It was a lovely place to land in the middle of a city of 2.3 million people. It is a little oasis, complete with beautiful flowers, many parakeets, turtles, and gorgeous plants. Oh, and I can't forget the wading pool, which is also such a nice meeting place for travelers from all over the world to share their adventures. The entire staff was so professional, informative, friendly, and extremely patient. Monica deserves a bonus! She's super!

Hostel is a good place to stop over on way to/from if you need to break journey. It is in random part of town with not much nearby except shopping centre. Taxis unlikely to know where it is so be prepared to drive around for a while! Otherwise nothing wrong and I'd stay there again for a night to break up journeys
Great little hostel, staff is welcoming and helpful, location was a little hard for taxi drivers to find for some reason but it is close to the airport, breakfast in the mornings is wonderful!
Great location for us as we were mid travels, area felt safe to walk around and we really enjoyed local restaurants. Would stay here again if in Guayaquil
These people make such an effort it is like staying in a hotel!! The best bed I have slept in during the past 8 Months in South America big comfy and extra pillows :) All the little extra touches are so nice the owner even insisted on carrying my heavy backpack up the stairs. Would not stay anywhere else.
Stayed for two nights whilst trying to organise a bus out of Guayaquil - this hostel is ideal for layovers, quite close to bus and air port terminals. Good wifi, clean room, comfy bed (had a private double) and reasonable shower. Kitchen was strangely under equipped (two pans!) and breakfast, whilst nice, was a bit small
good hostel close to the airport and the bus terminal.. perfect if you only want to travel trough guayaquil!

Great hostel. Very clean and rooms large and comfortable. Kitchen was adequate and a good cheap laundry down the road. Also close to a shopping mall bus station and airport.
When I arrived at the airport in Guayaquil, all I wanted to do was sleep. I had already booked Dream Kaptute before coming and the taxista (and later taxis I took) knew exactly where it was without the address. The staff was very nice as well as free breakfast. The only issue in my room was that the electric shower didn't work. You do need to take taxis or buses to other places like Malecon or the bus terminal. I wouldcstay there again.

The staff were wonderful and helpful. It's not in an area close to the malecon but is closer to the commercial district , airport and bus terminalwhich is what I needed. It was clean, beds were comfortable, there's a nice area for sitting upstairs at night which is away from the TV area. A good breakfast is included.
Great hostel! Very clean, the staff is bery helpful and friendly and the rooms are spacious. It is away from the city centre which is great and quiet. And for those who want to venture in town for the day then it's only a 30mins bus ride. There's a mall about 5-10mins walking distance with shops, a food court and a cinema.
Good place. Good location. Very safe. Friendly staff.
The staff is very efficient and helpful. They checked me in quickly, helped me to carry my luggage, provided directions for food and shopping, and secured a taxi early in the morning for me (even waiting at the door for the taxi super early in the morning)! The 6 bed room for women needs curtains above the door. There is just too much light that comes in. The mattresses need to be replaced, because they sink down in the middle.
Stayed her twice, first for one night to catch an early bus, second time for two nights-stayed in dorms and private rooms. All clean, breakfast was lovely and staff were friendly. Not much in the way of location- the first night when asking where to eat we were directed to a food court in a shopping centre and after a beer each in the hostel they had ran out. Second visit however, we found a fantastic strip of crab restaurants- which was Delish and the bus to the city centre was easy to navigate
Lovely hostel with comfortable beds. Bathrooms were clean. Kitchen facilities but didn't use them. Breakfast that wee included varied each daily are we're delicious. A big plus for us was the travel agency dealing in Galapagos tours. Chris has a great knowledge or the islands dealing with all the cruise ships. A one stop shop for booking last minute with all the info that you need rather than trawling through the Internet.
Nice place but a bit far from the center. Good breakfast
The location was perfect for me, I was just staying and going to the airport in the morning. But the neighborhood it was in seemed kind of dumpy and their wasnt much around. You had to take a taxi to see any good parts of the city.
