Hosteria Itapoa in Puerto Lopez, Ecuador is in the center of Machalilla National Park, and only lies 20 meters (65 feet) from the beach. The hostel set in a charming area surrounded by lush grounds.

"The new cabanas near the front offer A/C"
"Definitely choose a cabana with private bathroom"
"Cabins are best. Room at back was a bit dim. We moved to a cabin as soon as one was available"
"I only stayed in a cabana with AC, but many guests I net loved their rooms that had only fans. We all had hot water though which is a bonus,"
"Get a cabin near the common space if you want wifi."
