Hostal de Ricky Montanita Reviews
AVOID! Jul 14, 2010
In one night at this place, 1 girl was allegedly raped by several employees and a few other rooms were burglarized.
Bring your own padlock and don't trust the ones they give you if you must stay here. DO NOT leave your door unlocked if you are in there at night.
The rooms are as sketchy as the staff. Trust your gut if you look at the place and go elsewhere.

Hostal de Ricky - cheap accomodation Jul 01, 2009
The Hostal de Ricky is a small hostel located very close to the terminal and the highway.
I decided to crash a night here, since I arrived when it was already dark and didn't want to carry my big backpack. The location is convenient if you are looking for a place close to the terminal or bus stop and it's not that far from the beach or party area, but being so close to the highway is not very good if you want to sleep. The noise of the trucks, buses and people wouldn't let you sleep long.
Cleanliness was ok, but could be much better. They give you mosquito nets, but they seem to be dirty. Bed was comfy enough or I was so tired... nevertheless it was ok. The bathroom was ok too. I had a private bathroom and hot water.
It seemed to be relatively new, since they were painting and things were unfinished. They don't give you breakfast, but have a communal kitchen, so you can cook your own meal. There's no internet, but for what you are paying you can't ask for more. Oh well, I have to say that the owner was kind.
I'd recommend this place to crash 1 night, if you are arriving at night with heavy luggage and don't want to walk to look for another one.
Part of the First time in Ecuador, but definitely not the last one :) travel blog
