    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.

    After a delayed flight, which meant I couldn’t check into my originally booked hostel in Miraflores. (check for 24hr check in guys!) I booked this at midnight while waiting in line at passport control. Within 5 minutes I’d received an email with the low down on taxis and Uber. Once I arrived at the hostel, someone was waiting at the door to let me in. Being a girl, travelling alone, this made me feel secure and looked after. If you are on a layover, this is the place to stay!

    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!

    Super nice woman who runs the hostel, she gave me some watermelon on the house when I arrived! Close to the Airport which was great since I had a 6:00AM flight. Super clean as well. Only issue is that there wasn't a real window in the room I stayed in so it got pretty hot. 2 fans, however so it was manageable.

    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.

    What a wonderful hostel. This is really one of those places where you feel like you are at home. Staff is amazing, and is always there with a smile on her face ready to chat and offer help. Just hanging out in the common room, she has come by a number of times offering me drinks and snacks. It is quiet, small and very chill. The location is close to the airport and bus station, and there is a busy street nearby where you can find restaurants, supermarkets etc. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic place only 10 mins from the airport. Ideal if you are only staying one night. I was getting a connecting flight to the Galápagos the following day. María is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great too. María even helped me set up my sim & arranged for a taxi to the airport! Would thoroughly recommend this hostel.

    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

    The owner was so helpful, we were able to leave our luggage in storage while we spent a week in the Galápagos. She also let us have a shower after check out for free which was awesome. Hot water, decent WiFi, close to airport and bus station... ideal for a short stay.
