    Excellent and convenient location, beautiful building. Spacious dorms with a lounge area built in. Lockers were large enough to fit all my belongings and there is a security person at the hostel front door during the day. Bathroom could’ve been tidier but hot water was great! Staff was friendly and spoke English. Would definitely recommend!

    Manso is a great deal for a traveler on a budget. Location on the riverfront can't be beat. Imo. I ( The rooms are huge (well, mine was... Sandalwood) and everything ensuite: bathroom, kitchenette, sofa, lockers. On Malecon, it's near the cathedral, the Torre Morisca, Cerro Santa Ana - the hill with 444 steps. And if you're adventress like me, you'll tack on the extra 48 steps to the top of El Faro for a 360° view of Guayaquil.

    I loved this beautiful quirky hostel. It was in an amazing building with the best breakfast on terraces over looking the busy streets and the Malecón. They even had circus silks! The dorm room I stayed in was spacious and bright

    Guayaquil is expensive for Ecuador patterns, so for Guayaquil prices, I think this hostel is a good option. The best thing is the location. Everything is in a walkable distance and there's a balcony where you can get some breeze from the Guayas during the hot nights.
