    My son stayed here and said it was a great stay!! He was able to cook every day and relax and of course, the owner is so nice and accommodating. They sometimes made food for him also and he felt safe there especially during the pandemic. Thank you so much!! :)

    Conveniently located near the airport and bus terminal - ~1.5 hour walk to downtown Guayaquil, or just take a cheap cab. the owner is friendly and very welcoming, which helped to make it a great stay. Good choice for those transiting through Guayaquil, I would return.

    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!

    Not a bad place to stay to catch a flight or bus. The staff weren't so friendly and didn't know useful info, like a number to call a taxi early in the morning. The room was cold for me with the AC on; they had it set at 18 C and I couldn't change it.

    Are you going to the airport in the morning? Are you taking a bus? If the answer is no then don’t stay here! If the answer is yes than crash here! I was spending $10 a day on cabs going into the city to see my friends because I didn’t pay attention to how far it is out of the city! Also try to uber here! My cab spent 20 mins looking for the place
