    Extra stars for the staff!! Honestly one of the best group of people I've ever come across working at a hostel. From the driver to the front desk staff, to the woman cooking breakfast, each person was so kind, welcoming, and helpful. The rooms themselves are pretty basic but have everything you might need in accommodation. They offer breakfast for $2 which includes coffee and orange juice and your choice of food. I will definitely stay here on my way out of Ecuador.

    We were staying at Dreamkapture during the protests and the staff were really helpful. Good value and walking distance to restaurants and a big mall. Near to the airport. Kitchen was often dirty and the bathrooms didn't have hand soap. Stayed in 2 rooms (either side of Galapagos), one was much nicer and bigger than the other.

    A bit off the beaten track but usefully close to the airport. Staff were mostly very friendly and it felt safe in a not so amazing area. A good place to stay when stopping in Guayaquil

    Nice hostel but it's in an area of the city not well known. Make sure if you get a taxi they know exactly where they are going!!! Show them on your phone if need be otherwise they might get lost and charge you double like what happened to me! The taxi should be $5 from the bus station, if they try to rip you off please tell the staff and they will help you they care about you. About the Hostel: It is cleaned regularly and the beds are comfortable. Nice friendly, helpful staff.

    Stayed for a couple of nights before heading out to Galapagos. Has everything you need and a huge supermarket nearby. Atmosphere was a bit flat but didn’t really need/want it to be much busier as was sorting stuff out etc. Would happily stay again.

    Hostel itself was great. Room was average, but the hangout areas were cute, quiet, and breakfast was on spot with an amazing juice. Location wasn’t really close to anything useful.

    Nice hostel, especially if you are coming and going by bus or plane it is close to both terminals. The hostel has some last minute deals for the Galapagos, worthy of checking out. small pool and kitchen, I have stayed here a couple times and will be here again later this week.

    The location is kind of sketchy and I didn’t really feel safe walking down the street at night. The staff are incredible and super friendly, the rooms are a little small and it gets really hot at night. I would probably stay there again just as a layover but not as a place to crash.

    Good stopover place if you’re transferring through Guayaquil. The main bus terminal is 15 mins by public bus and costs 30 cents. Nothing really to see by the hostel. Staff are super nice and friendly.

    Hostel is conveniently located close to the bus station (10 mins) and airport (10 mins) so was an easy stopover for us travelling to the Galápagos. Sam on reception was also really friendly and helpful. Otherwise we found the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms needed to be cleaner. We had a bedroom close to the kitchen and there were unfortunately lots of ants. The WiFi doesn’t work in bedrooms and there was no locker or safe in the room.
