    My boyfriend and I are traveling on a budget through Ecuador and we stayed here in a private room for $20- twice! We absolutely loved it. Best AC we found on the trip and the breakfast, though simple, was also very yummy. We still think that it was one of the best rooms that we could find for the price and the staff is so helpful. They also have a very friendly cat and dogs. I would strongly recommend!

    My friend and I have been staying in Ecuador for 3.5 months and this is by far the best hostel we have stayed in. The facilities and staff were amazing and the complimentary free breakfast was also great!

    Excellent hostal overall. Olav was fantastic and extremely helpful. VERY close to the beach and excellent little shops and restaurants close. Stray dogs are super friendly so no stress there! Only warning is cards are not accepted so be prepared to have enough cash available. Doors DO lock so no stress. Also whole place locks at night. Overall, recommend.

    We really liked this hostel. The staff are lovely and the breakfast is really good! It’s in a good location in Puerto López with a lot of restaurants around and a couple of minutes walk to the beach (although it’s not the nicest beach). The guy at the front desk gives really good recommendations and is a really nice guy! Would definitely go stay again

    Cute little hotel right next to the beach. Breakfast was great, staff was helpful, and the coffee shop right next door was spectacular.

    The staff were very friendly and the location is convenient. The WiFi was a bit spotty in the room so to use it I would sit outside on a hanging chair and it worked well there. There were ants in the bathroom for some reason and they would never leave. They enjoyed going into the toilet bowl and after flushing, more would go in there.

    Great location and friendly staff, tours offered by the hostel to Isla de la Plata. Okay breakfast, good for a budget stay. Only qualm is lack of security, no lockers or keys for room and front doors wide open all day.

    This hostel was okay but didn’t really have any atmosphere at all, not the best place to meet someone. The bed was the most uncomfortable thing ever and the room was a million degrees at night! Kitchen and breakfast were both great.

    Pictures seem different to the place. There were no hammocks or social areas and the pool was green when we arrived. The owner did spend the last 2 days of our stay treating the pool. Moved rooms twice as our Aircon didn't work and also as the other needed to be fumigated from mosquitoes. Neither was our fault and seemed reasonable to move but we were told he wouldn't move us again. The rooms themselves were clean and breakfast was pretty good with fresh juice, eggs and bolones.
