Due to my flight crew job I travel a lot and I slept in hotels all around the world, BUT: I have never seen a hostal with this comfortable atmosphere. Staff is great and helpful! Every evening coming home from excursions, staff heated up my chimney in room and I could relax and enjoy a nice dinner.

Although the staff at PapaGayo did their best to ensure a comfortable stay ... the owners, Gulliver's Travels/Tours need a review of their customer service. There was no free drinking water - a small bottle cost you $1.70, which is the most I've paid in my two months travelling Ecuador. You are charged a $1.00 for each extra coffee at...

This was a great hostel, nice warm fire, fantastic food, good wi-fi, and good hot water. I would definitely stay again, but in a private room instead of the dorm. The dorm was a lot cheaper than a private room but there were two drawbacks to the 4 person dorm we stayed in: 1. The room was very small with...

Quiet place with very nice surroundings. I stayed in the "Sucre" room wich was very nice and comfy with a fireplace. It's a bit cold at night, but with a sweater, it's just fine! The service is very good and the chocolate cake is excellent!! The meals are good and affordable and there's many options on the menu. The living...

Gorgeous! My partner and I stayed in 'Victoria' room an it was beautiful. Comfy double bed with duvet and llama blankets, potbelly fireplace in the corner and lovely fresh roses on the dresser. The main lodge had an inviting livin area, free wifi, chocolate cake and tea after our excursion and a super cute sausage dog called Boris. The staff...

A friend and me stayed 5 days in Papagayo, as it was included in our tours with Gulliver Expeditions. After 2 months travelling in South America this was planned to be a time to experience the volcanoes and nature around Quito and we weren't disappointed in the least. In Papagayo we had a awesome, calm hostel, with helpful staff and...

We booked a week with Gulliver-Expeditions. Staying at the PapaGayo-Hosteria we did daytrips to different places. We went to the volcanoes Quilotoa, Cotopaxi, Corazon and Ruminaui. We went by bike, horses or just walking. After travelling for some time through Southamerica we had ridden many horses and mounted many bikes-> With Gulliver we definitely had the best equipment/animals (clean, well...

Not sure why so many people give an excellent rating, since it is far from beeing more than average! The place and the scenery is very nice and during the day it is enjoyable...but at night it gets freezing cold and it is not fun to spend the night there. I have to say that we slept in a dorm,...

Dear Sabrina, We appreciate your feedback, we take it seriously so we can improve our services and specially our two dorms. Our Hosteria is not a hostal, and our goal is not to sell dorms, however due to de demand of climbers and similar turists, we still offer economic options. All our standard rooms and suites have private bathrooms, with...
