8/10 Very good

Nice hotel - complicated booking system.
Unfortunately there was an issue with their booking system and, although hotels,com showed that they had 3 nights free, they contacted me the morning of my stay to say they could only accommodate me for 2 nights, and I had to move for that last night, which was a bit annoying. But, saying that, the hotel was very comfortable for those 2 nights, quiet and breakfast was very tasty. And the room was very clean.

Great Service!
The staff was amazing. My wife was sick when we arrived. They went out of the way to make sure she was comfortable and had everything she needed. It was also one of the cleanest hotels we havw stayed at in Ecuador.

Espectacular hotel completamente nuevo todo. Lo mejor es el servicio pues te atienen los dueños y pasas como si estuvieras en casa. El restaurante la comida deliciosa y se adaptan a tus requerimientos. Hay un estacionamiento grande en el hotel. Yo le daría 5 estrellas y no diría que es hostal, sino un hotel mejor que muchos q los que he ido.

Dejligt, roligt og hyggeligt sted med høj standard
Vi havde 5 dejlige overnatninger på dette familiedrevne hostel. Værelset var lyst og enkelt, men smukt indrettet. Sengen var meget komfortable, badeværelset dejligt stort og med en god bruser. Morgenmaden god og personalet/familien der driver det er utroligt søde og servicemindede. For os der ikke kan tale ret meget spansk var det også dejligt, at den ene voksne datter talte et rigtig godt engelsk. Beliggenheden er også god, tæt på markedet og i gå-afstand til busstationen. Det eneste vi savnede var noget skabs- eller hyldeplads til vores ting. Det havde også været rart hvis vi havde kunnet se ud af vores vinduer :) ( de var sandblæste og slap derfor kun lys ind).
