    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!

    The owner is very friendly and welcoming! She is more than willing to help her guests with transport and her breakfast for $3.50 was filling and delicious! We stayed only one night before heading to the airport but were pleased with the hostels close location to both the bus station and airport. Would recommend and stay again! Gracias!

    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.

    Great location less than 10 minutes from the airport by taxi. The owner and her mother, who live on premises, are just lovely and welcoming. The room we stayed in was small but cozy and perfect for a short stay. The owner came with us to the market and helped us shop for Guayaquil crabs and her mother cooked up a feast for us! Could not have been sweeter or nicer to us! Not the location to stay for sightseeing as far from central city but for layover between, before or after flights...perfect!!

    Just stayed here a night between long bus journeys so wasn't there for very long. Very close to the bus station and the host didn't seem to mind that we arrived at 2am so that was great!

    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

    Staff here were lovely, the owner gave us watermelon when we arrived and some local food during our stay. We had a double private room which was comfortable, had a fan and enough space for both of us. The hostel also did laundry quite cheaply. The hostel is quite small and located close to the airport but quite a distance from the centre but ubers are cheap!
