I arrived at the bus terminal from Cuenca and have a flight to Galapagos for the next day, so I booked online for one night. It was around 4pm when I arrived, even if I had a copy of map but I couldn't find the location as there's no address written on the corner wall. I tried to ask the... More

The dorms were hot. We stayed here because it was close to the airport. The common area was nice. The front desk guy was friendly. We walked to a restaurant and the streets were dark so although it was likely safe, it was difficult to feel comfortable in the area.

Clean rooms, air conditioning works and convenient for close to airport stay. No hot water at all. TripAdvisor states it supplies free breakfast but we were then told in the morning that it would cost $5USD per person which we declined.

Rooms were nicely air conditioned in the humidity of guayaquil and beds were very comfy. Absolutely impossible to find, there are no signs up anywhere and you have to ring the doorbell to get in. Showers were cold- we managed as it was quite nice in the heat to have a cold shower but if we'd stayed longer than a... More

This place is awfull, the rooms are not so good, and, the worst thing of all, the staff is very rude and never helps you with anything. I wouldn't reccomend this place to anybody. People should think twice before of make a reservation here

A couple of days prior to arrival I sent Murali Hostal another email just as a reminder, and got a confirmation again. On my arrival, they had my reservation in their book, but no room was available.
