Would be nice to have a locker in the place to put valuables.

Everything you ask you get


Macondo Hotel was perfect in every way. Felix and his wife I think never stops working. The room was cleaned every day. Breakfast to order was delicious with unlimited coffee. I tried some other restaurants in town, but Macondo's food was the best. Fish, chicken, shrimp; every meal excellent. Super clean everywhere. They even did my laundry. By far my favorite place to stay in Ecuador. I hope to be back soon.


Felix is very nice, He let us have our room at 5am. The hotel is located on the main square. Our room was very bright and clean. We had a great view of tthe park. Therew is a nice roof top patio. We had hot water the whole time we were there. This has more of a hotel atomsphere than a hostel atomsphere. Laundry was expensive.


excellent value for the money. nice rooms and good beds. foul smell in the bathroom. about five blocks from the beach -- and it is a five block town. wifi was hit and miss.

This is a beautiful Hotel with down to hearth staff! I did stayed there for 3 nights and everything was perfect! Felix the owner, by the way he speak English, is a very good cook! He make dish as you like, it's very tasty and cheap! The room was clean everyday with the bed done. The terrace on top of the building is awesome. Basically you have you room with TV and bathroom for 9$ a night!! Thank you Felix!!


Brilliant hostel, really enjoyed our stay here. Very helpfully staff and good food.


Felix was very accommodating and friendly. He went above and beyond to try to make our stay very enjoyable, he has great customer service skills! The specials for dinner was also very delicious, and we were very appreciative of the efforts that he put into making it great. His culinary background was very apparent. We would definitely recommend this to future travellers, even though it is not directly on the beach it is very close and there are plenty of shops around.

The owner is a very friendly guy. He will give you recommendations if you ask and makes a delicious breakfast. The Hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and is super quiet because it is away from all of bars. The room was very clean, the only problem was the hot water was inconsistent. Other than that it I had a great stay and would definitely stay there again.
