    Not a lot of hostels let alone good hostels in Guayaquil. This is the best one as you can see online. It thought it was great. Good staff, great patio, good vibes all around. I wish they had hard liquor and kept the beer fridge better stocked and open later but it’s honestly a non issue.

    very pleasant hostel, nice patio area, super cleaned. Only downside is that rooms are very hot and no a/c fan only.

    Night staff member Maria was super helpful. Morning staff was not all so talkative but nonetheless kind as well. They have an excellent deal with a local tour guide who does free walking tours. Two, one in the morning at 10:30AM and the other at 5:00PM. Great guide too! Definitely would recommend him. Overall, the hostel is quiet, breakfast is simple & filling. The only down side is how hot the rooms can get and its also a little far from the center of city. Still a great deal.

    Nice area, really good pool and large dorm rooms so plenty of space for all of our stuff. Clean bathrooms although no hot water, and was quite expensive for what you get I think. However, staff really nice and breakfast was good, so was the kitchen. Overall would recommend for a stopover in Guayaquil.

    Very Good

    Overall, a cute hostel. The pool and patio are nice. The gate outside makes it seem safe too. The breakfast was pretty small (I don’t even eat that much) but it was good. A few issues— no access to the kitchen during certain hours. I wanted to heat water up for tea before bed and they said no because the kitchen was closed, which was bizarre to me...I just wanted hot water. I’m sure she could’ve helped me if she wanted to. Also, we had a private w bathroom but a cold shower was the only option.

    The pool is what makes this place. It was much appreciated after a humid walking tour around the city. Location isn't fantastic, you are a long way out of the city centre in a neighbourhood such we were repeatedly told was quite dangerous (though we didn't see any trouble). Also breakfast was a bit on the stingy side, though they have an extensive kitchen to make your own food in.

    It is apparently the best hostel in Guayaquil. This might be true but it is a pretty average hostel and an even more average city. We came here because it was cheaper to fly to Galapagos but I would rather pay to fly from Quito and skip Guayaquil and Nucapacha all together. The rooms were hot, the area was average and the place was expensive. The pool was really nice though so if you need to stay then make sure you give it a go. Paying a $5USD deposit to use a towel is a bit disappointing though

    Staff was amazing. But just not very nice and didn’t have any atmosphere. Was in a pretty sketchy neighborhood
