    Great hostel. Perfect location close to the bus terminal and airport if your only staying for a night before moving on. Walking distance to dominos pizza 5 mins and supermarket. Great WiFi and comfy beds. Good kitchen and friendly staff. Can’t complain.

    Some folks said it was a sketchy neighborhood but it's just a normal working class hood. I walked from the airport and once I was within two blocks two different people offered me directions. While I didn't really care to stick around Guayaquil for too long I enjoyed my stay at Casa Michael. Even the local cats seemed happy and almost friendly.

    Very comfortable hostel in a nice area (the centre is a bit far away, but there are buses close by). Staff was super-friendly and could speak English as well. Very clean bathrooms, hot and cold showers available as you wish. We stayed in the dorm room for one night, it was really warm during daytime but the hostel offers fans in every room which makes you cope with the temperatures easily. Big recommendation!

    Very good place to spend a night before/after a flight. The location is far from the sightseeing places, but is calm and full of good restaurants, also close to the airport and bus station. The staff are quite helpful. The lockers are located in only one part of the building, so some rooms have easier access than others. The common area was a great place to hang out and meet other travelers. There weren't many power sockets to charge phones/laptops. Quick laundry service.

    Owner was super nice and super friendly! Location though was kind sketchy, but it's not to far from the airport, so for people using guayaquil just as a layover it's not that bad

    I found the location convenient for my overnight layover en route to Chile. But, my private room was a bit disappointing: Peeling wallpaper, accordion door to bathroom was torn, broken and wouldn't close. There was no curtain (as pictured) in my room. The worst: the patio sliding doors did not lock. My host tried to lock but couldn't. He assured me that I would be safe because the patio was still inside the hostel. Coming from L.A & N.Y. that was not ok. But, in the end, I was ok. Good B'fast!

    A good place to stay if you are stopping over in Guayaquil and need to be near the bus terminal/airport. Shops/restaurants are all nearby - didn’t feel super safe walking around at night but just keep your wits about you. Also location wise it’s in a residential block which all looks the same and we managed to get lost so having a phone on you would help, but again just to wary when out and about. The hostel has a kitchen so it’s a great way of saving money and staying in.

    Pros- the owner was very helpful and assisted me personally with my travel plans, it was available at 8pm the night off, the $3.50 breakfast was on point Cons- the location is nowhere close to downtown or the airport or anything else, it was sketchy enough at night when I got there that even my Uber driver asked if I was sure if this was correct, there were no lockers or place to securely put anything, one of the workers got annoyed when I asked for a towel or a blanket, the shower was freezing
