What makes us different?
We are a Boutique Hostel
We’ve already learned the difference between a Hotel and a Hostel, and now is the turn to get to know what it takes to be a Boutique Hostel.
Being designated as Boutique Hostel isn’t easy at all, this means you should be fashionable, small & luxurious, but also, carry a strong personality and be unique. You should be able to deliver a mind-blowing experience to your guests and make them feel at ease around your place.
On the other hand, paying attention to details is always a must and makes a big difference between a Hotel, Hostel, and Boutique Hostel. If you put in a little bit of extra effort, you will be able to amplify your guests’ experience.
As we mention before, we are a unique Boutique Hostel located in the heart of a warm beach town on the Ecuadorian Pacific Coast. Our uniqueness is expressed in our Living Art Gallery all over the Hostel and in our friendly hospitality, which makes our guests never want to leave CoCo Bongo.
