Nice hostel, lovely and helpful staff. Felt a little bit small for the number of guests - e.g. the breakfast area doesn`t have loads of space but not really a problem. Really good kitchen, nice TV room etc, close to Copacabana beach, would recommend!
Really nice hostel, great breakfast, good showers. Really cute cat, really friendly and helpful staff.
Nice hostel, there is seldom anyone at the front desk though which we needed a few times so was slightly frustrating..! Other than that hot showers, comfy beds, good location. No lockers but felt pretty safe, guess it depends who you have in your room though!
Really nice hostel, great bar and restaurant, nice dorms. Gorgeous cats!!
Nice hostel, not too expensive for the Galapagos. Not much atmosphere when we were there and also very difficult to find! Would be useful to send out directions once you`ve booked, no one we asked could help us!
Kevin the owner is so lovely and helpful, made the stay brilliant! It`s a little bit further out than some of the other hostels but only a 10 - 15 minute walk and all taxis are only $1 anyway. Comfortable rooms, including having a fridge and tiny kitchen area. Good value for the Galapagos.
Nice hostel - we were only stopping in Guayaquil for one night on our way to the Galapagos. Not too sociable or brilliant atmosphere but that could have just been the time we were there. Staff were nice, however they told us they would book our taxi to the airport for us and it would be sorted for us when we left the next day. Taxi never came - don`t know if taxi or hostels fault. Unfortunately there was a power cut at the time so we had to walk in the rain to get one - I guess we were unlucky!
Fine for a night or two as somewhere to sleep but not really more than that. No receptionist when we turned up, had to wait for him to come back from the shops. Room smelt like eggs every time you turn the tap on. Didn`t seem like there were any other guests in the hostel... however beds were fine, seemed clean enough so fine for somewhere just to stop by!
Really nice hostel in great location. Kitchen is very small but not really a problem. Staff very friendly and helpful - helped us book all our activities in Banos at great prices. Only complaint is the 11pm "bedtime" when after which you cannot use the communal areas, so have no choice but to go back to your bedrooms - bit weird for a hostel when you cant even sit and have a chat until midnight! Other than that would definitely recommend.
Nice little hostel, really sweet Italian owner. More of a guesthouse however and not the place to go if looking to socialise. Kitchen is fine, and bedrooms clean and comfortable. Not the greatest location as nothing is really nearby except standard shops like bakeries and internet cafes but easy enough to get the bus from the main road during the day.
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Staff were so friendly and helpful, atmosphere was brilliant - had so much fun here but it didn't have a party hostel atmosphere throughout the night so it wasn't a problem if you didn't want to go out. The dinner they serve here was delicious and Conrad made excellent smoothies! Would reccommend 100%
Nice hostel, felt safe. Staff were helpful and friendly. Dorm felt so clean and safe, nice atmosphere. We were only spending one night in San Jose on our way to Manuel Antonio but the hostel was perfect for what we needed. They also had a cat!
Decent hostel, rooms are standard but basic, lockers didn't feel completely secure as they were wooden and harder to lock - although we didn't have any problems. My friend realised she left her camera here but when she emailed the hostel about it received no response whatsoever. The location was good though and the hostel was generally nice, good breakfast and the swimming pool and hammocks were good!
This was a nice place to stay, however the nearby area didnt feel like it had much going on other than big chain American restaurants such as Burger King, Wendys, Subway etc. Felt safe to walk around at night though. Kind of annoying that you have to pay to use lockers, or to use the computer with internet, even though it is cheap. Also the lockers are not in your room which is a bit of a pain. Rooms were very basic but alright. It was a nice place to stay but just nothing outstanding.
Brilliant hostel, clean, great atmosphere, amazing breakfast. Staff are friendly, also make great smoothies. This is a quieter hostel, for a party hostel would be better to go to La Terraza, however anyone is welcome to their bar so we just went over there for the night but enjoyed our stay at El Hostal. Would definitely reccommend, also if staying its worth going to Sky Cafe across the road.
Really nice place to stay. It's a bit further out than a lot of the other hostels or hotels but is only about a 15 minute walk to the main street. The walk felt safe as well. The owners are really nice, and our room was great and really good value for money.
Really lovely hostel. Staff are all very friendly and helpful, the bonfire in the garden was really nice. In walking distance of anywhere you would need in the city.

Really good location right next to the Zocalo. It's a fairly quiet hostel which is nice if that's what you're looking for, not if you're wanting to go out and party etc. Lovely staff, very clean, feels very safe (lockers big enough for large backpackers and key cards to each room). Would recommend.
