I picked this hostal out of the blue. It turned out to be a great decision. First, its location is unbeatable. Our suite overlooked La Ronda and for two of the three nights we had front row (balcony) seats to Festival La Ronda. This was totally unexpected and a perfect adjunct to a family vacation.
Secondly, our plans to visit the coast fell through. Gloria and Hernan stepped in to drive us to the coast. They attended to our every need and we felt like royalty. More importantly, we became extended family of sorts. These eight days were fantastic and we spent every one of them involved somehow with Hernan and Gloria. Did this tour cost money? It did but I have no idea if the price was good or bad; all I know is it met our needs and assisted us in a travel crisis.
Hernan and Gloria and their family manage this hostal. It is not without some problems such as have been mentioned and the beds are pretty typical of Ecuador (not especially comfortable). But, its clean and incredibly reasonable and the location is without equal. You feel like a member of their family the minute you walk through the door. If this is the experience you hope to find in Ecuador, you need look no further.
