Liked: The stuff, the food and the facilities are great! The neighborhood is quite far from the touristic center, but it's in a very quite and beautiful area.

Disliked: The room had only 1 fan for 7 people and it's very hot in Guayaquil. The shower didn't have hot water, but it wasn't really a problem because of the hot weather. There was not enough plugs for charging cellphones or cameras.

Liked: So cheap and convenient! It was located 5 min by taxi from Airport and close to shops. Also, it had a pool which was a winner for us!

Disliked: The only tables to eat on were located outside..so when we made dinner in the kitchen we had to eat outside with the mosquitos.

Liked: Stay here just for the pool! Breakfast was good, evening staff person was nice, rooms simple but fine.

Disliked: The day staff were rude, dismissive, uninterested in helping, tried to charge us $5 more than the Hostelbookers rate! Forming sentences either in Spanish or English is generally considered good form rather than simple grunting as someone.

Liked: The pool!!! it was so hot, that it was nice, having a refreshing swim.

Disliked: It was dirty, the showers didn't seem to be cleaned at all. The walls are really thin, so its hard to sleep after traveling all day when some people are partying. It was very busy and there weren't enough tables or seating areas.

Liked: there´s a pool. and a bunny pet

Disliked: everything, the water on the pool didnt look clean, they give you a small breakfast and I had to wait 1 hour each morning to get it, the bathrooms floor are wet and filthy from people going in and out of the pool, the stairway to my room in the lower level was wet and people would slip on it all the time, there is a fat ecuatorian boy "working" there that was really rude and inmature, played music really loud, and made offensive comments when asked to lower it. Also the breakfast is on the patio, but it was raining, I had to grab a table and chair and take them inside by myself and dry them to use them

Liked: Location is handy to shops and supermarket. Feels very safe. Good kitchen. CUTE bunny rabbit. Beds pretty comfy. Well priced.

Disliked: Filth. Black feet from walking around barefoot. Not at all clean. Swimming pool needs a good Chlorine hit. Lazy and non-helpful staff watching TV all day. Just about beaten up by aggressive Finnish guy inside the hostel. Cooked dinner and stored leftovers for lunch following day; by morning leftover were thrown out. To be honest I couldn't wait to leave.

Liked: This was by far the nicest, friendlyiest, comfiest and most relaxing hostel we have stayed in the whole of South America. The girl on the desk was above and beyond helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and reasonably priced. The breakfast - which was brought to your table - was amazing.

Disliked: Nothing. The location,staff and hostel itself were perfect.
