I traveled through Ecuador for a month and this was by far the worst hostel in the whole country. We arrived at noon and were very pleased with how everything looked. The older woman (owner?) asked us to return to the front desk to pay before we left for the day. We both took showers and then returned to pay. She was chatting with a few other women and there were kids running around. So we pay her and go on our way. When we return that night at around 10 PM, she accuses us of not paying. She didn't even remember talking to us and her daughter even confirmed that she did talk to us again but didn't see money exchange hands. We argue with her for about 20 minutes and tell her that if we have to pay again we would rather pack up and leave and pay more money somewhere else. And that is exactly what we did. If you do stay here, get a receipt! Or take a picture of money exchanging hands! Stay across the street at the Sol Inn.

So my girlfriend and I arrived in PL in the afternoon so we had time to check out a lot of hostels in the area...this is by far the best collection of ammentities- at Hostel Machalilla they have clean rooms, hot water, a kitchen to cook the fresh fish you just bought from the boats in the morning, and many comfortable places to relax and enjoy the wonderful weather in PL. Eating lunch on the rooftop balcony was the best! The owner´s son was very helpful in setting us up with a place to rent surf boards, a guide that spoke English for our tour of Isla de la Plata, and giving us information about the area- he speaks English and is learning German. Overall, the total family you will find that runs the place is very helpful with any information you need or to make your stay better. I wish I could have found Puerto Lopez sooner, instead we spent time bouncing around Canoa and Manta before landing in Paradise. So visiting this little town will make any trip to Ecuador better...and staying at Hostel Machalilla is a must!!!

Room Tip: Room 5 is quiet and stays cool all day!
