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.

    Great place of a great guy, who is always want to help you with tour way around Colombia and how to go to Galapagos and where spend the time over there. Fully recommended for 2 3 nights stay or 1 night before moving another place around Ecuador. 10 min tops away from the airport and bus station.

    Stayed here a night after landing late and before heading to the west beaches. Does the job, clean room. Had a bad experience with a few people in the shared dorm but not the hostels fault at all. Juan at the desk is awesome

    This is a good hostel with amazing staff who are really friendly. It's not the closest hostel to the things to do in Guayaquil and it can get quite hot in the rooms, which are quite basic, but it is worth it for the friendly and helpful staff.

    Good hostal at a good price. Perfect for a night before or after flying to the Galapagos. Has a good enough kitchen and lots of options of supermarkets/cheap restaurants nearby.

    Meh. Good place for a one night stopover but other than that nothing special. Kind of expensive for what you get in comparison to other hostals. The hostal is oddly separated so you can either end up on the side with the kitchen and lockers or the other side which feels quite isolated/no lockers. Stayed in a tiny room with tiny bunks, no windows, and one of the walls was a door that you could hear everything from the other room. Tucked away with a nice park and neighborhood out front though.
