It is a good stopover since it is close to the bus terminal and the airport, there is a mall with a big supermarket nearby and the hostel has a decent kitchen. The atmosphere is not great, probably since all the people are only there for one or two nights and there aren't really any common areas- a few tables, chairs or hammocks would help! also, 10$ for a dorm is a bit steep since the hostel does not offer any extras. that said, the staff was nice and guayaquil is wirth a day- parque bolivar!!


We only stayed there for one night.. It's not a bad place but it's in a dodgy part if town. Very conveniently located to the airport tho it's literally right down the street so if you're only there for a night before you fly then i definitely recommend it


Er only stayed one night, came with the bus from Lima and went one the next day to quito. Close to busstation and airport. Right next to a mall, we are probably going back for over stop before flying out, it is fine for a one night stop.


it's good on me. Simple is best. Close to airport by taxi. Thank you.

Good stopover place. Pretty basic but close to the airport and bus station. The pool did not look swim able, but it is walking distance from the mall del sol. Wifi worked really well


Definitely not worth the price and misleading description. We stayed here on two separate occasions,first in the private shared bathroom, second stay in the dorm. The private room was full of bugs, the light didn't work (had a dim lamp) and I very uncomfortable bed (can feel the springs). The dorm room fan didn't work, the window didn't meet the wall (full of Mosquitos), no curtains. This night, a staff member was in reception drinking loudly with a friend until 5am. Didn't sleep at all!


Close to the airport. We had an issue with Grasshoppers coming into our room all night and crawling over the bed - wasn´t very pleasant.


It's nice for a stop over inI guayaquil for a night. One bathroom for the hostel, staff friendly butno English.


We got here later than expected after a 31 hour bus ride. We were hoping to get a beer and small snack but nothing was open in the neighborhhood. It was 10 at night but it was also saturday even the sol mall was closed. The hostel is closer to the airport than the bus station. Rooms are basic. The owner was nice.i think that i would look for something closer to more bars and restaurants.


Good if you are passing through. Big shopping mall next to hostel and can watch English films at the cinema with Spanish subtitles. Fairly noisy outside our room at night and early morning. We stayed in the room opposite reception. Close to airport and bus station.


Perfect for layobera from the airport or bus terminal but for visits to Guayaquil it is far from everything. "Kitchen"/lobby/chillout space is all one small room and the only indoor space besides the dorms.

Great bolt hole for Airport. Not close to city attractions if this is your plan.


Let's say this hostel served its purpose. It is close to the airport so we stayed there one night before our flight. For visiting Guayaquil I would not recommend it.


we just stayed there for one night. The hostel is located close to the airport so we could walk. We just had one stay before we went to the Galapagos. It is enough for a stay and the staff was really fun and helpful. Additional breakfast for 2 Dollar was also good.


Hostel was great, small clean double room for only $11. Mall across the road, owner was great and really helpful. Even had a small pool.


Good, sincere hosting. Good company.

We only stayed one night, but we really enjoyed our stay. The facilities were very clean and well maintained. The host, Paul, was very friendly and helpful. Go check it out if you are in the area!


Paul was very friendly and welcoming. After a week on a boat in Galapagos, he made me feel well cared for. The private room with bath was clean and I slept like a baby!


The oner of this place will help with any problem, the hostel is very close tithe mall, air port, bus station. It's not a place to get crazy but its the place to stay for the night you are in Guayaquil.
