This hostel was located close to the bus terminal and airport and had many restaurants in easy walking distance. Lots of security in the neighbourhood made us wonder if the area was safe but it was absolutely fine to wander around at night. The wifi didn't work in the rooms, only in the communal area but breakfast was cooked to order.


Hostel was fine for a one night stopover. Rooms were pretty shabby and the curtains let in all the light from the corridor. Staff never noted that I had paid and wouldn't let me leave the next morning until they had confirmed with other staff, also forgot to call my taxi that I had booked. Breakfast is wonderful, coffee, eggs etc.


This was an ok hostel. The staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful, but they weren't rude either. It could've been a bit cleaner. It was a bit far from the city, but it's in a nice neighbourhood. The breakfast was pretty good though. Having a top bunk was a bit difficult too - there is less room between the top bunk and the roof than between the bottom and top bunks .


We really enjoy the stay over there, the people where really nice with us and gave us exelent turist tips!!!! im extreambly gratefull with them cause i forgot my ipad in the bed during the chek out, and when i came back to fetch my stuff they told me they{ve found it, and gave it back!!!!!! :) cons: only that there is no air conditioner nither hot water, but none of them where a problem for us!


We liked it, had 3 days before going home from Ecuador, and it was a nice place to stay. 5$ from the airport. It had a good kitchen and a big supermarket near by. The pool was nice on the warm days, it is not crystal clean, but we have never seen a crystal clean pool anywhere in South America. The staff was nice. It is located a bit out if centrum so it is a quiet place, which we liked, but others might want to stay in the center.. We would come back.


Only stayed one night before heading to the Galapagos.


I had no problem with the distance - just stuck around the hostel area to get over jetlag, Close to the airport in what I thought was a safe area. All good!
