gatta Overall, I was very satisfied. The location is just 5-8 streets away from being ideal (ie./ right in the center of the action) depending on how motivated you are to walk to the key tourist spots; if not, taxis go by every minute or two, as do the buses. The building is very secure, which made me feel good right away. The owners are a lovely couple and their son. (The father speaks and understands English sufficiently). When I arrived the lady of the house gave me a map of the city, pointed out all the key spots, and pointed me in the right direction. Even though I don´t speak/understand Spanish very well, I found it very easy to get around and felt quite safe (and when I ventured near an area that the locals thought was unsafe - they made a point of telling me!) For a quarter I was able to hop on a bus and take a ¨tour¨all around the city. When I saw something that piqued my curiosity, I jumped off, then jumped back on another one until I saw something else. I even caught the bus to the bus terminal, luggage and all. One of the nice passengers on the bus helped pull my suitcase on-board. The room was clean, supplies were on hand and the air conditioning was powerful. I kept it on while I was awake and was able to sleep quite comfortably with it off during the night. I thought it was odd that there was no blanket (only a sheet), but found it to be just right. The continental breakfast was served with a smile as well as juice, roll w/ cheese and jam, and coffee. (Bottled water in the lobby was also accessible the whole time). :) The only drawback to this place is that they don't take anything except cash for payment. If I was ever fortunate enough to be back in Guayaquil - I´d stay there again and recommend it to others looking for a safe, bargain place to stay.
