    This hostel is clean and very well organized. Close to the airport and easy to get to the bus station. The staff are amazing, very resourceful and helpful! They provide great free walking tours and other activities every night in the hostel. The breakfast is also good. It felt like home staying here.

    Clean, cozy and very heart-warm hostel Josselin and Pilar (owners and mom and daughter) were very welcoming and so sweet to talk to. This hostel is in a very calm neighborhood, fairly close to the bus station. Would highly recommend to stay here :-)

    Good location for airport but not for downtown. 45-55 mins on bus. No identification on front of property to say that you have found the correct place. Neighbours had to tell me which one. Otherwise pleasant owners. One girl speaks English well. Breakfast was an omelette and couple of pieces of toast with jam. Juice and tea. No hot water for showers though and no A/C.( in my private room anyway). Arranged Uber for me to airport for $2.00. Don't have access to kitchen but will boilwaterfor tea.

    Nice, friendly staff and hostel was good for a stopover in Guayquil before our flight. Probably wouldn't recommend for longer than that, the location isn't great and the bed was uncomfy and rickety.

    The owner is nice but its really far from the main part of the city, and not actually that close to the bus station/airport (if you're walking briskly its 45 minutes). There was a bunch of confusion over free breakfast and regular breakfast, and its a familys apartment with 2 rooms of bunk beds so its not a meet other travelers type of hostel. GYE is also pretty warm and the AC isn't turned on until 2200 so hanging in the room during the day is a no. No use of kitchen.

    The place is a little hard to find with no signage outside. No lockers but you can leave your valuables in reception. Would have been nice to have some keys for the place rather than relying on the owner to let you in and out all of the time (we felt a little annoying each time ringing the bell). Also there was some confusion with breakfast, I booked free breakfast but it didn’t show up on their system. This was sorted in the end.
