...not because you couldn't stay longer, but because, you know, Guayaquil isn't the greatest place on earth to hang around. That said, it's clear that the staff take pride in running a clean and comfortable place. It was a welcome respite from the bustle of GYE, and we felt totally safe and secure. We stayed in the Cacao room - two twin beds, shared bathroom with one of the dormitories. The room was more than comfortable for two men and our packs. The beds are comfy, the linens are great quality and clean, and the air-conditioner is quiet and powerful. The hot shower was great, but they may want to work on the plumbing; our shared toilet didn't really flush. Brekkie is somewhat slim, so spring for the eggs et al for an extra $2 or so.
El Manso's location rocks; adjacent to the Malecón, 7 blocks from some great nightlife, and only 15 minutes ($5) from the airport. Stayed here twice, and it's the perfect overnight transit stop.
