    Прекрасный хостел в минуте от пляжа, ресторанов, баров, магазинов, транспорта. Удобная кровать, чистота, отличный завтрак и кофе, всегда готовые помочь хозяин хостела Мигель и его помощники. Там же можно заказать туры, взять велосипед на прокат. По сравнению с другими хостелами города несравненно лучшая цена и качество. Очень рекомендую!

    I’ve been travelling for 9 months and the owner is by far the best Hostel owner I’ve met. He was so welcoming and helpful; he recommended local, authentic places to eat, invited us to learn Salsa and even invited us to eat some amazing Shrimp that he had prepared. The dorm I stayed in was nice, it had 2 bathrooms! And the overall location of the hostel was amazing. Thanks for having me!

    The location is perfect. Was there three nights, and had the entire dorm to myself. No partying or anything of the sorts, which was exactly what I wanted after being in Montañita. Miguel (aka Ecuadorian Kelly Slater) and his assistant William were incredibly friendly, and helpful in all my needs throughout my stay. Miguel’s dog is such a good boy and joy to see. Day trips to Los Frailes and Ayampe are super easy from this location. Highly recommended if you’re in Puerto Lopez!

    I couldn’t book through hostel world (my problem not the hostels). Decent place. Great location, accommodating, hot water, powerful shower. I wasn’t told about breakfast until I had left, so don’t know about this or try it. There was drinking water available, which is always good. Could put food in the fridge, couldn’t use the kitchen. When I stayed in the dorm room there were no lockers or anywhere to put valuables, but I was on my own so it was fine. Comfy beds. Great sleep for price.

    Very conveniently located near the beach and bars / restaurants, and helpful staff. 8 bed dorm large and comfortable with air con that worked and kept the temperature perfect. The water in the shower was cool to warm, but never really hot. The kitchen on the roof top was a little dirty, we decided against cooking up there. Great little sandwich bar with local craft beer in same building. Seems expensive for what you get compared to other hostels in Ecuador, but a good and safe choice.

    stayed here for one night, everything was perfectly nice for a hostel in ecuador. The AC was broken, but the staff was doing their best to fix it. Literally an empty hostel which was unfortunate but understandable for Puerto López at this time. nothing to complain about, nothing to write home about.

    Got a nice upgrade from dorm to private due to low occupancy. Two adorable, friendly dogs! There’s a kitchen on the rooftop terrace but also a sign warning that it’s “private” (and it’s not kept very clean anyway). Drinkable water only sporadically available.
