“SCARY!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

Hotel is small and creepy!! Power goes out for 3/4 of the day so there is not hot water and no light. Elevators don't work so you gotta take the stairs. Breakfast at the bar was good. We stayed one night and left and gotta another place to stay. Also not a safe neighboor hood!!

Room Tip: No good rooms unless you dont need a shower!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2011

I paid almost 40 dollars for the single room - a bit expensive by ecuadorian standards. The room was very basic: medium sized room, a TV with cable (including couple of english language channels), a bed with rather hard mattress but a very nice pillow. There was a safe in the room, and a little closet. The shower, however, was excellent - hot water 24/7 with great water pressure.
There is a small restaurant at the hotel that serves anything from breakfast to dinners at decent prices. The dinner plates go anywhere from 4 to 7 dollars. Though, you can go to one of the local dining places and have a simple dinner for 3 dollars.

Ask for the rooms at the back of the hotel (al fondo), as their are generally quieter than the once in front, facing the noisy street.

When I stayed here, my single room was $30 per night, more expensive than a single room at most hostals. I was expecting something nicer, but what I found was merely adequate. My room was spacious, the TV was in good condition and had a few English channels, the staff was accommodating enough, and there was a small restaurant on site. However, nothing was significantly above average. The location was nothing special and, although the rooms were okay, the hallways and rooms seemed dark. I could stay here again, but there a better options available.
