The hotel is located in a very safe neighborhood and provides good service as breakfast. The only problem is the noise coming from the swimming pool area where guests meet and talk loudly forgetting that the rooms are just next door.

... Was a pretty ok hostel, not a fairytale land, but a pretty ok hostel. As said, far away from anything interesting, but relatively cheap, including decent breakfast, friendly staff, decent WiFi, lockers and decent showers. Now I think about it I should have titled it decent. Close by a street with many places to eat, from the hostel 3/4...

It is a bit far off the centre, but this is reached easy by bus (number 52). The hostel is great, with a good breakfast, fantastic wifi and an amazing pool. The rooms are very big, but it is crazily hot at night. Luckily the hostel provide fans in the rooms. Also there is a bar, where you can purchase...

Nucapacha has a nice pool as well as a good equipped kitchen with free drinking water (Guayaquil is very hot so you have to drink a lot!). They serve a decent breakfast. The staff always gave me good information. I used Guayaquil as base to explore the south of Ecuador and left some of my stuff in their storeroom for...

This place was recommended to me by airport information desk and only a $5 taxi ride away to a nice peaceful neighborhood of restaurants and markets. The poolside bar sold really cheap beers and many were using their laptops on the poolside patio. There also was a computer available inside. I had a private room upstairs with a bath and...

We quite enjoyed this place. It had a nice relaxed atmosphere and the pool was a nice touch. Good value for money especially with breakfast included. The internet was average and did not reach our room. Staff were friendly, kitchen was good. At one point we needed something printed and this could not be done due to the printer apparently...

Great neighbourhood and close to many cute bars and conveniences. The room was clean and safe and the hostel staff were really helpful too! Unfortunately the pool was closed when we were there, but I imagine it's PERFECT for a dip when the weather is so hot!
