    Super relaxing and chill hostel. Michael’s Hostel is located in a friendly Guayaquil residential neighborhood so you feel like you are actually living like a local, rather than just staying in a hostel on a busy, business street. It is also pretty close to the airport and bus terminal. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially the owner, who woke up early to help call a transport for me.

    Great location, just a 30min walk from the bus terminal and the airport, therefore just a quick ride with the taxi. Kitchen pretty well equipped, only two bathrooms tho. Each bed has its own fan which is necessary due to the humidity. Staff was very helpful and showed me where I could get a free yellow fever vaccine. Met a lot of fellow travelers there.

    Very Good

    The hostel was clean and only a $2 Uber ride from the bus terminal. However, I had booked a 4-person dormitory only to find out upon arrival there were none available and was put in an 8-bed room instead. The receptionist was very kind in dealing with this and pro-rated my payment to make up for the larger room. But it still shows a lack of organization. They were also unable to provide a key to the room.

    It’s a little Close to the main bus terminal in Guayaquil! The Uber to the hostel was $1.90 and a 10 minute Uber ride. The hostel is in a residential neighborhood so not much going on at night. Inside the hostal it was a bit quiet for being a Friday nigh as well. Good place for a clean and quiet stay but not very good to meet people. It’s advertised that breakfast can be purchased but when I try to buy one the said that the cook was not there. I would still stay there if I need a quick stop in G

    This hostel was okay. The staff was helpful and nice, and the kitchen was great. There wasn’t really anywhere to sit comfortably outside, and the beds felt like they were falling apart. It is located outside the city center, which is great if you’re just popping by before a flight or a bus. It’s easy to find food around, and we felt very safe. I wouldn’t spend a lot of time here, but alright for a night or two.
