We loved staying here. The place has a cool garden, pool table, free coffee, great breakfast and much more. Only one minor remark: the guest kitchen could be slightly better equipped (we had to borrow heavily from the staff kitchen to cook our meal). Definitely recommend this place!

Stayed in 2 different private rooms which were really spacious and very clean. Hostel has good friendly vibe and decent common area with a billiard and foosball tables. The showers weren't that great in either room but had decently warm water. Good wifi and the $3.50 breakfast was worth it. We would stay here again.

The $3.50 breakfast is definitely worth it - delicious and made to order. Everyone working at the hostel is really friendly and little touches like free purified water, tea and coffee go a long way. Advice on travelling to other local areas is available as well as a link to a local tour company. The place is a little tired... More

I travelled throughout Ecuador for 2 months and this was my favorite hostel. I came back at the end of my trip because it felt like home. The breakfast is a bit more expensive than at the local restaurants, but the lovely fruit salad and real coffee are definitely worth it. A few of the rooms have 3 beds, and... More

This hostel isn't flash, new or fancy but makes up for its age with old world charm and fantastic staff. We stayed in a room off the garden away from the main building that may once have been stables but is now quite adequate accommodation. It was a little cold at night but warm blankets are provided as is towels,... More
