Great hostel, less than a block from the beach. Open horseshoe-shaped block of rooms with lots of plants and hammocks in center. Great location! Great staff, super nice and helpful! Very accommodating!

We spent two nights in Hostal Machalilla. We liked the location - just a few steps from the Malecón and beach, where all the restaurants and travel agencies are located; only one block from the supermarket. Great hot shower with perfect water pressure. Would not recommend cooking here, as there is almost no space for chopping and preparing your food and the stove doesn't work well. Bring mosquito repellent!! If I'd come back to Puerto Lopez one day, I would search for another accomodation.

We had a very nice stay. The hostal is very close to the beach, a calm and open place with space to cook (stove, big fridge, some spices, plates etc.) and sit together. Dennis is a friendly, open person. Cheap place for good value!

Great place! Clean and Maria was very helpful. It was right next to the beach and had flowers, hammocks, and a mosquito net. Would definitely recommend.

We came to Puerto Lopez looking to relax and Hostal Machalilla was perfect for that. The private room was cleaned daily and fresh towels provided regularly. The rooms are set around a well-maintained courtyard with multiple hammocks. It is also in an ideal spot, 1 block from the beach and 1 block from the supermarket. Although not well stocked the kitchen has what is needed and is nice and open. The hostel is connected with an excellent your company and all arrangements and pick-ups can be done at the hostel. We came during low season and never had more than one other guest around during our stay. The manager and staff are extremely friendly and thoughtful. We would recommend staying here to anyone going to Puerto Lopez.

My stay was very nice. I was greeted and shown my room when i arrived, which was clean and had everything i needed. The hostel is in a good location, close to everything in town.
