    The staff is so friendly and helpful. The hostel has a very cozy environment. The only thing missing was air conditioning but there’s a small pool where you can cool off.

    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.

    Classic stopover hostel for me. Not much going on at all but perfect when you need a good nights sleep after landing late and moving on. A few good places to hangout, or have a drink on the upper floor. Was impressed by how large the property actually is, clean but no soap in washrooms. Breakfast costs $2, about 5km to airport.

    Staff are great here, really friendly. The pool is tiny but still a great addition to the hostel to cool off on a hot day. Breakfast was nice and worth the $2. The downside is the jungly vibe doesn’t end with the decor - there are ants everywhere plus some crickets and other creatures. Our room was insanely hot too, even with the fan on high. The location is a bit of a pain because even though it looks close to some places on a map, the one way systems mean you have to take long routes round.

    I booked a 4 bed bedroom and I got stuck with a 7 bed bedroom so we had to share the room with other girls. According with the person who checked us in they DO NOT HAVE any room for 4 people. I complained to 2 different receptionists and asked to speak with the person in charge. I deserved a compensation for the mistake and the person in charge ignored our request to speak. The sheets were not clean and the bathroom had NO HOT WATER to shower.
