The location is in a quiet upscale residential neighbourhood, close to the river. Two buses going to El Centro stop at the corner of the street and you are at most a 15 minute ride away. Also close to a Supermaxi. A taxi ride to El Centro is $2.50.
The Hostal is modern and very clean and comfortable. Blanca and Pablo are very kind and helpful hosts who speak good English. I prefer this location over a more central one in El Centro which is less secure and has more street noise. Do not count on every night to be peaceful though. Like in every residential neighbour hood there are always dogs in most houses who are kept outside. There will always be one who starts barking at random and sets off a bunch of others. Better get used to this in Ecuador...
I paid $28 for a single room on a daily basis and $150/week.More
