Nice patio area Jun 05, 2010
Although this is in a very rich superb of Guayaquil, the location isn´t close to anything of tourist interest. Its about a 4 dollar cab ride down to the ¨downtown center¨, which is 40% of the nights accomodation which is a drag.

There´s interenet access, a pool, a bar area, breakfast is included, a tv with loads of movies, and a huge kitchen available for use. There are two dorm rooms and a lot of private rooms ranging for 1-4 people.

The staff are really friendly, and some of them know a fair amount of english. One girl inparticular is really great at recommending places and giving directions. Thumbs up for hiring her!!!

New, modern hostel Sep 26, 2009
Nucapacha is a relatively new hostel, set up by two girls who used to work at Dreamkapture (the only other real hostel in Guayaquil).

Its in a nice quiet neighbourhood which has all the bars, restaurants and shops you'd need. Buses are pretty easy to town (25c a ride).

Hostel has pretty good facilities - nice big swimming pool being the most noticable! Dorm rooms are massive, bathrooms clean (cold showers only), wi-fi available, TV room as well.

Cost of standard dorm is $10 a night which is higher than you'll pay in the rest of Ecuador, but the lack of choice in Guayaquil at the moment means the prices are still high. HOLA hostel members get a $1/night discount.
