    good value

    This is a good home base if you are looking to hang out in Santa Elena for a few days. It's a nice hostel with private rooms. I wouldn't suggest sharing 1 bed, they were very soft. I'd upgrade to the bigger rooms with two beds. The walls are a bit thin, but that's very typical with all the places around there. If you want more, you need to pony up more money. Great location that is central to downtown Santa Elena. Overall, I'd return. Oh, and they have lots of monkeys and coati.

    Not enough hot water. Heat Insulation and sound insulation are bad. But we like the location and staff.

    Mixed

    The location is great if you don't have a car. The staff were welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is simple but adequate. Night security effective! Our major complaint was the state of our bathroom, old and worn with not enough hot water to take a decent shower. I don't mind simple but hot water is a necessity.

    Great staff!

    The staff was very nice and friendly. the place is beautiful and really well situated. The only problem I had was an old matress, it was caved in the middle. Otherwise, I loved the place.
