    I stayed one night and it was exactly what I was looking for. The staff was super attentive and helped me with some laundry even though I arrived late and left early in the morning, the place was really clean and close to the airport and bus station. Very happy with my experience.

    I stayed at this hostel for three nights last after arriving from Lima, Peru. The advantages of Villa Maria were obvious from the start with the warm welcome, the very clean facilities and the proximity to the airport. But the main advantage became clear when I was sick with food poisoning. The owner and her daughter took me to the Medical Centre, and the owner gave me personalized service back at the hostel, bringing freshly squeezed apple juice, porridge, probiotic drinks etc. I remain very grateful.

    Very chill cute place with very kind staff who are more than willing to give you advice. It is a very convenient location too as it is a 2 dollar Uber to bus terminal/airport and 4 dollars to the downtown hub. If you’re looking for rest and convenience this is the place for you!

    The owner is amazing, she helps you with lots of information, she's always willing to provide the best options, and she is a very kind lady. The hostel is very good, accomodations are too. Location is a bit far from the city center, but you pick one bus and you are there. The owner explains very carefully which bus to take, etc.

    Maria is a wonderful woman and I am beyond grateful for her hospitality while staying with her. She brought me a lite breakfast each day for free, and the $4 breakfast was very extravagant! Will recommend to anyone looking for a cheap and pleasant stay in guayaquil
