Liked: I liked the location mainly, because it is within walking distance of both the Airport and the limmense bus station. Even in hot weather it´s posssible to carry a pack to either destination. Landmarks are easy to find and the area seemed safe at night within several hundred metres of the guest house. In the bus station you can find anything you want , supermarkets, fast food, any type of shopping and of course buses to any destination. This needs some research as I don´t speak spanish . Buses leave from three floor levels and is quite confusing if you are in a hurry.

Disliked: The door to the shower didn´t close so well and some other bathroom fittings were loose. But the bed, TV, windows and air-con were all fine.

Liked: Clean and big orthopaedic bed was great.

Disliked: Hard to find above a pharmacy. In a dodgy area with few facilities. Very high price. Promised early breakfast before flight, but no-one awake. Had to let ourselves out and hail a cab in the street. Always like to be positive, but, sorry, at $45 per night, this is not good value for money.

Liked: Really friendly welcome and arranged for Felippe (driver/taxi) to take me places which took away another hassle as I only had a short stay. Have wi-fi and lots of eating options outside the front door

Disliked: Location is noisy (altho it was fine for me) and would need taxis if going into central Guayaquil but for an airport stay it's perfect and much better value than other places in town

Liked: The hostel is nicely decorated with really comfortable beds, good pillows, good-sized rooms and wifi throughout. It is 10 minutes from the GYE airport, so good for an overnight stay. There's a good and incredibly cheap Chinese restaurant within a block.

Disliked: It is really hard to find. My shuttle driver and fellow passenger, both from GYE, had a hard time finding it, even after calling the hotel. For future reference, it is in an area known as "Sauces 2" and is directly behind the Sana-Sana Farmacia. It has a minute sign "Tabuba" on the wall to the right of the door, which cannot be seen from the street.

01 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very friendly and informed staff. Excellent rooms with television and air conditioners. But the location tends to be better suited to those people able to speak spanish since the guest house is within a Guayaquil neighborhood. Still it is the absolute best lodging I have experienced in Guayaquil. Nothing like the horrid Manso Boutique near the river walk.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
