    A hostel with lots of character in the heart of historical Guayaquil. Big shared rooms with comfy and clean beds, big open window, with a couch and separate kitchen stem off of a narrow central staircase full of art. Photographs of India can be found throughout and give the impression that the guesthouse is kept by travellers. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the high-ceiling and airy cafe area was great and helped get my vacation in Ecuador off to a good start. Thank you!

    Nice hostel. There's a lot of common space which is great, and the location on the Malecon couldn't be better. The included breakfast is forgettable... mostly breads and spreads, fruit, and granola with the option to buy add-ons like eggs, pancakes, or bacon. The lockers in my shared room were awesome. Big enough for all of your stuff (bring a lock!). They also had filtered water available for free which was really nice. Definitely recommend and would stay again!

    The location is the best part about this hostel! Directly on the riverfront and in the middle of downtown. The dorm was super spacious and the locker big enough to fit two large backpacks! There's also a spacious roof terrace. However the cleanliness was so bad, it made me feel uncomfortable.

    I am bitterly disappointed that my second stay at Manso was not as expected. I booked a mixed dorm - no security lockers and the main door was left unlocked. no bottom or top bedsheet and the mattress protector was dirty. The bathroom was beyond filthy. The floor was dirtier than the streets outside. There is no way this has been cleaned for months. It doesn’t matter what the budget - there shouldn’t be any compromise on cleaning.
