I had a very good experience in Hostal Flipper. I was in a single room which was very clean, with personal bathroom that was also clean and tidy, bed was comfortable, owners friendly and approaching. Managed to negotiate the price to 20 USD for 2 nights. The Hostal is very central and the noise from the street is easily blocked... More

Stayed for one night here in a double for 20 dollars. First impressions were good with a clean outside and a clean room with streetview balcony. The room is set back from the beach by a few blocks. WIFI was okay - up and down in the room. Unfortunately our bathroom was filthy (hadn't been cleaned - with shXt on... More

Great choice in Puerto Lopez as it is central yet away from the noise. The old lady who runs the hostel is very friendly and helpful. She is also willing to negociate on price out of season. It was very clean.

I don't normally take the time to write a review but I felt in this case I should warn anybody thinking of staying at hostal flipper. The staff are a disgrace. The first problem was the male owner kept harassing us to book a whale watching tour which we were happy to book, but as we explained several times to... More

Spotlessly clean rooms with a fan and mosquito net located just round the corner from the bus stop (literally one minute walk). Not on the beach front but only a 2 minute walk away. Restaurants and shops all nearby. Showers were hot and powerful. Owner very friendly, he can give advice on how to get to Los Frailes and other... More

Located just down the street from the bus station, this hostal is fairly quiet. The rooms are clean and basic. Towels are small - an Ecuadorian standard - and hot water is available on request. At least that is what the friendly owner/manager said - it was a hot day so we opted for cold water showers. Short walk to... More
