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.

The hostel is located very close to the airport/bus terminal.

    The staff were really friendly and helpful. Great location if you have an early bus or flight the next day. Hostel is minimal but good value for money. I would stay again :)

    Good place for a stop over on your way to the coast. Comfortable beds and decent showers, neighbourhood was a bit sketchy but you don’t have to venture out if you’re only there for one night. Host was friendly and helpful on arrival, giving us tips on our next leg of the journey. WiFi is also exceptional here so no complaints about that. Recommended for a nights stay in Guayaquil.

    Very cute small place, good to stay for one night. Unfortunately it’s way too hot in the rooms not enough fans. The fan was only for the bOttis bunks

    This is a really chilled out hostel with relatively good facilities, great wifi and a nice communal area to watch Netflix. The staff were really friendly and super attentive!

    The beds were dirty and the room lacked much needed aircon. However the WiFi was blisteringly fast and Netflix was a pleasant addition.

    Would not recommend even for a bed to sleep in. The mixed dorm is disgustingly hot- I had a better night sleep on a cheap night bus than this hostel. There are way too many beds squished into one room and there’s no space to put your bag in the room. Location is in the middle of nowhere. No social atmosphere. The one positive was that the owner Michael is absolutely lovely and went out of his way to help out with organizing Uber’s and recommending places to see.

    We got the private room which was damp, miserable looking and had stained sheets (which the staff changed quite quickly in fairness!). When we were being checked in, the employee left his earphones in. Michael himself was quite nice. The security is poor as nobody locks the door. There was a problem with the water and Michael had to jump out our window after 10pm to correct and didn’t put things back. So strange! Location is poor also.
