Hostal Murali told us a driver would meet us at the airport and would charge us $15. for the trip to the Hostal. The driver (Jorge) was waiting for us but charged us $30. This is a 3 to 5 minute ride which a taxi would charge $3 to $5 for. Upon arriving at hotel he tipped the night hotel...

We stayed here after a 10 night trip on a sailboat in the Galapagos...with no air conditioning. We kept the tempterature of the room near meat freezer and it was great. Nice shower, comfortable beds and walking distance to a multipurpose store (like a Super Wal-Mart / Target like place). Great to stock up with before a trip out to...

We stayed in the dorm room before and after a trip to Galapagos. The location is perfect for both the airport and bus station, just a 10 minute walk away. The dorm room is basic without hot water and the sink is downstairs. There are two fans provided in the dorm, and lockers available. The downstairs lobbey was comfortable with...

There is sometimes an english speaking person here, but not always.They work with an english speaking driver [Jorge], who is very helpful and accommodating.The rooms are a decent size but are...

Stayed here in Dec before flying out of Guayaquil. We'll definitely stay again, it's beautifully finished with smart leather sofas, art and ornaments, the rooms are big and comfy with huge TVs and aircon, lovely showers...we paid $56 in the high season and it was a real bargain considering the other (bigger) hotels in the area can be two or...

Like most Hostels in South and Central America, when you show up at the outside door, the look of the place makes you think you should run away. This one is no different. Once inside though, it is very nice. Old beautiful woodwork, beautiful doors, etc. Our room was plenty big, with nice comfortable beds, flat screen TV with cable....

We landed at Guayaquil Airport and were greeted by Jorge who waited for us even though we were well past the time we had anticipated. We had more luggage than expected but some how Jorge managed to get everything loaded and took us to the hotel. The staff unloaded all our luggage and placed it in a secure area until...

I cannot think of anything good to say about this hotel. It is filthy, and I´m afraid to get into the bed for fear of catching something. I´ll sleep on top of the sheets. I am sitting in my room hungry, as there is nothing to eat here or near by. The tub has hairs in it from a previous...
