Can't be beat location steps from the malecón. All rooms have air conditioning, I had an ensure bath that was clean and had hot water. Breakfast was included: eggs, toast, fruit, coffee and tea. Laundry was $5 for a medium/large load. Would absolutely stay there again.


Very lovely hostel at a great location. The staff is very friendly. Bathrooms could be better.

A really beautiful and unique hostel right on the Malecon. Comfortable, stylish, and a very good value for the money. Not much of a community or socialization among guests, but that's the only drawback if that is important to you.


i have been twice in Manso Hostel In Guayaquil, I will return.


Great hostel, very kind staff and a beautiful location. They could have more activities in the hostel itself though, like movies or something more to do!


Manso boutique was a very comfortable hostel. The air conditioning in the room was perfect after a hot day in Guayaquil. Very clean and in a good location. The staff was very friendly, the only thing is I felt they weren't very knowledgeable and a little forgetful


Good hostel in an average city. If you must stay in guayaquil - this is a nice place. Clean, safe, good location and staff... The facilities and atmosphere let it down.


The location of the hostel is perfect, right on the malecón 2000 close to the main street and close to Barrio Las Peñas (20min walk). The hostel is more like a hotel though. Breakfast is included and simple. Rooms are pretty small but clean. AC is working perfectly, Wifi as well. A television in the room or in a shared room would have been helpful to relax in the evening. Despite being a little bit more expensive than the other hostels we stayed at in Ecuador we were quite satisfied.


The only advantages of this hostel are for the excellent location (on the malecon 2000 and v near 9 de Octubre for shopping) and the lovely helpful staff. I felt the female dorm room was really an extension to the cafe. There wasn't a comfortable area to relax in the evening, and in the morning the staff in the kitchen were easily heard in the bedroom. The dorm is small but has good personal lights and air conditioning.


Hostel has a great location, close to everything, it's clean, helpfull staff... only drawback is loud traffic infront/under it.


Excellent location, would stay there again. Had a small issue with extra night bookings but got worked out. Paper thin walls, rooms are very noisy. Earplugs a must.

As you can tell by the name, it’s more of a hotel than a hostel, so there’s no common area, just their (tasty) restaurant. But the A/C in the rooms, the super friendly bilingual staff (only place in Ecuador where they gave me a bus schedule brochure, so helpful), the closeness to all the tourist attractions, makes it a great place to stay in Guayaquil.


Great staff, good lunch, perfect location, decent wifi. The A/C in the room is great, too bad they don't have it in the cafe/common area.


Very clean and confortable place, very nice and heplful people are working here. Perfect location in Guayaquil.


This Hostel was are really nice place to stay in a not very pretty city:) The staff was were friendly and spoke even bilingual. We would definitly go there again.
