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.
sbeaumont24 We have nothing but praise for Casa de Romero and it's owner Andrea. She arranged for transport from the airport on our arrival and also found someone to go with us to the Immigration office to help translate and make sure we had the right documentation. As for the hostel itself, it is modern, clean and most of all welcoming. Breakfast was great too. Thanks for all your help Andrea!

mhourani What can I say. This house is a little taste of heaven in the midst of Guayaquil. I cannot recall in the past ten years of travel ever meeting more helpful, courteous, and generous people. Antonio, his sister and Johnny made this stay more than excellent. If you are looking for five star American do not book. This is better. The rooms are not large but more than spacious enough for two people. Air conditioner was the biggest asset in this city. Bathrooms were very clean. Great internet service. Would I stay again? I already did. On my way back to Guayaquil from Cuenca, I needed a room for one night and there was no doubt in my mind to book here again. I was even treated to pick up service from Antonio from the bus depot. And the best part of that is it was his pleasure and his suggestion to pick me up. I was made to feel so special. Again guys Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness. When i return to your great country, I will for sure call and be your guest.
