Just stayed one night, but the hostel is really quite nice (cosy garden!), close to the airport, has hot water and a comfortable bed. Bit noisy as most hotels/hostels seem to be. Could not wish for anything more for that price.

Stayed one night before Galapagos and came back for another two afterwards. When I returned I had not reserved a room. The dorm was full so the owner Christopher was nice enough to put me in a 3 bed room (to myself) for the price of the dorm until the dorm had a free bed next night. Decent scrambled eggs...

I stayed at Dream Kapture for one night before my flight to the Galapagos and had a fantastic experience. We were 2.5 hours later in the night then we said due to our bus being late and were still met with a smile. I thought the dorm was really comfortable, in fact one of the most comfortable beds and pillows...

We organized our Galapagos cruise through Dreamkapture. They have an excellent and well structured website. Their communication was professional and prompt and the documents were clear. However, their main message is that very cheap last minute cruises don't exist or are not attractive. This appears not to be true. We were just on the Galapagos in August 2014 having paid...

The hostel is in a really good location especially for those who are staying overnight for connecting flights and buses. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless and the kitchen is well equipped and again clean. The breakfast is good and most of the staff are very friendly. The hostel can lack atmosphere but this is more due to the fact...

I didn't even stay here as despite being a female traveller on my own and arriving in Guayquil at 2.30am, they didn't answer the door. When I called, the guy who answered said they had no reservation in my name and hung up, knowing I was standing outside in the street. I did see a missed call later, which to...

I stayed here for 1 night a few days dog while transiting through Guayaquil. The hostel is really close to the bus station and airport, just 5USD for each taxi trip. I was greeted by 2 of the staff when I arrived and shown around. The staff were welcoming and went out of their way to answer some questions I...

Stayed in the dormitory of 6, the place was immaculate clean, hot water and staff was friendly.

I was a bit sceptical of this hostel as there were so many bad reviews but I thought it was great. I arrived at Guayaquil airport and emailed them from there, got a response immediately. The courtyard is great, plenty of plants and singing birds.
