“It's ok”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

This hostel is ok. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. There is free internet. It has a kitchen, which is not too clean but it is usable. The beds aren't comfortable. There is a nice outdoor area. However, it was a little uncomfortable to hang out there on a Saturday because the owner's family was there. So it was awkward. There is also a church next door that can get annoying because you can hear the loud music and the kids will come play. Also, the rooms can be loud especially if you get the room next to the owner's kitchen; you will be awakened at 7am with the sound of a blender and pots and pans.

Room Tip: Don't get the room next to the owners kitchen.

Clean and comfortable. It is a great budget option. A great place to meet other boaters I hear, but we were there a bit early and didn't see any. It can be a bit loud. The owner, Juan, is very attentive. There is a private cooking area, but I wish there had been potable water available.

Clean Beds though not so comfy, sort of hot water, open kitchen, good for kayakers and backpackers, nice garden and hammock area, free internet. Try the maito restaurant right across the way for some of the best Amazon fish of your life!

We only stayed there for one night before heading off for a jungle "experience" but this place was good value for the $5 each we payed. The rooms and showers were clean enough, it was quiet (although this was low season), and there was free internet.

BUT the rooms aren´t the prettiest and there´s no breakfast or book swaps or any of that added crap.

So... It´s good value and fine for a stopover visit, just don´t expect anything spectacular

A Welcome Break is in a good location and there are usually other kayakers around, which is nice if you are boating. The rooms are ok and the beds are clean, not super comfortable though. The bathrooms are shared and were broken most of the time we were there. Make sure if you are in a triple to get a good deal. Typically they charge $5 per person each night, but you can get them to lower the price to $4 which makes it super cheap. Nice guy owns it and he speaks English. It's also safe to keep your gear outside there.

This place was simply perfect! It was cheap, free internet, really clean, the beds were comfy and the shower had nice hot water. The common area was a bit shabby but the hammocks and the surrounding garden can make you change your mind very easily! The next door Pizza place had really good food. My friend had lasagnas, she said it was ultra tasty. I had a pizza personal and as a pizza lover i have to admit that it was the best cheese i had in ecuador so far.

  • Liked — free internet
  • Disliked — common area too close to the rooms - no noise after 10pm
