TravelPod Member ReviewsHostel Nucapacha Guayaquil
The worst hostel I have stayed in yet. The bedrooms were were dingy, dirty and smelly. The walls, strangeyl, were covered in mirrors that were all mouldy and it all seemed to be a very strange set up. There was a large swimming pool, but I wouldn't dare go in it judging by the colour of the floor. The staff were friendly enough and the breakfast was average.

After strolling through the plaza and looking in on a mass in the huge cathedral, we started walking down towards the river front. On the way we stopped in at a museum with mostly original works of ...
... scene with a missing baby Jesus. Most impressive were the endless tall ceilings that gave the church a hollow feel.
True to the description of our guide book, iguanas were everywhere! They sunned on the grass, stood frozen near the turtle and koi fish pool, crowded themselves on a square of concrete chewing on stems of palm leaves. They went about their business despite the onlookers. As hideous as any creature could appear, many ...
... area. Instead of staying in a hostel, we are staying with my dad's work friend, Gustavo, who lives in Guayaquil. He picked us up from the bus station and brought us to his apartment. Gustavo is a nice man and it is kind of him to let us live in his apartment. He also took a day off work to give us a tour of his city. We have been excited to meet him since we started our travels. We went out to dinner with him to a Mexican restaurant. Afterwards he drove us back to ...
