Hostal Gaviota Azul, Loja, Ecuador (October 2018 - 1 night). Hostal Gaviota Azul is located across the road from Loja bus terminal on the lower corner. A room for 2 people cost $20 and with a private bathroom had the best hot shower out of all 22 hotels I stayed at in Ecuador on this trip! The room had a small balcony overlooking the busy road and crazy traffic roundabout which is quite entertaining. The city center is a couple of kms from here. Recommended.
