Property Description

Our hostel is also our house, so it feels like home. On top of our undivided attention, you will find a fully-equipped kitchen, an air-conditioned living room with a 50” LCD, super-fast internet, a washing machine and even a piano. We will make you feel at home! We love to share our vast knowledge regarding South America in general and Ecuador and Galapagos specifically. We are very flexible, and will be happy to assist in any problem and answer any question.

The hostel is located very close to the airport/bus terminal. You can find all you need within a short walking distance: banks, supermarkets, food (McDonalds, Dominos, KFC, PizzaHut, Wendies, Papa Jones, and a LOT of local food). 3 malls (Mall del Sol, CityMall, RioCentro Norte) are within a 5 minute taxi/bus ride. The neighborhood (Alborada) is a very safe one.

    Hostel is exactly what I needed. Proximate to airport and rooms are solid. Juan is the man and the staff is great, which is the primary reason I'm leaving a review. He went out of his way to coordinate a COVID test for me and was super helpful with everything else during my stay. Will be back here if I'm ever in Guayaquil.

    I loved staying at this hostel. I booked a 4 people dorm & I was the only one in the room. The bed I was super comfy. Lucy at the front desk was wonderful. Location is super lovely too, just kind of further away from the attractions. But, there’s a bus stop nearby so that helps. :)

    I had a nice stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the employees, Juan, even walked me to where I could get a print out of my covid test and offered a wake up call Next door is a falafel restraunt where you can buy a tasty falafel meal for only $5.I met a lot of other friendly travelers. The only criticism is that it was so hot. I couldn't sleep because I was sweltering.. I would have liked some AC or at least more fans.

    Michael and his staff are very hospitable. He helped us plan a last-minute Galapagos adventure! This is great place to stay when arriving/departing from Guayaquil because you are minutes from the airport/bus station & shopping malls! Staff is very friendly. Highly recommend air conditioned room. Towels included and laundry available - you can even get a Falaffel in the evening. Enjoy your stay!

    Pros: AC worked in the dorm, free towel to borrow, and the staff was helpful in getting me a taxi to the airport in the morning. Cons: No lockers in the dorms. Bathroom and kitchen are tiny and not very clean. Didn't seem to be any common areas (or I just wasn't shown them). Atmosphere was strange, didn't feel very safe there. The other guests in my dorm were loud at very late hours and intrusive of my personal space.
