Very good location, good bed to sleep, big room, nice breakfast. The only thing is if you would like to sleep early, has a Bar downstair with too much noyse until midnight, but this is not a problem while you can socialize downstair....


We had a reservation for a room with private bathroom. On arrival I received information that the system has reserved a room without a bathroom !!! We paid for a room with a bathroom that is on the booking amount payable upon arrival !!! Deception practiced in all the hotels in Ecuador, where we lived !!!


This is a fun place to stay, hostel with restaurant/bar at the edge of the historic center where it's easy to meet people. The facilities are good, breakfast with several options is included in the price and staff is very helpful. Hot water and pressure is a bit unreliable and the noise from the bar (approximately until midnight) might disturb somebody, but I would still recommend this place and happily return.


It seams that everyone likes La Cigale, it is very lively and the food is excellent as well as the service. We went to check different restaurants and bars but La Cigale was always the most crowded till 12 midnight which could be a problem if one likes to sleep early , in that case a room in the back would be more appropriate. The staff was very friendly and helpful . We enjoyed our stay there.
