I was staying in Las Gardenias for 4 nights during February 2015 and must say that it was probably the best hostel of my whole 3,5 month south America trip. The price of 15$ is really good for the nice rooms, a good working hot shower and the wifi. But most important is the incredible friendly family that owns the... More

Great hostel with amazing people running it. The rooms are adorable and it is cheap for the accommodations, location, and service. Hot water, comfortable beds, wifi, etc. my favorite are the hammocks. So relaxing. Did I say it has the greatest family running it! Homely feeling.

As far as the hotel is concerned, the location is central to the port town......although this is not hard to find....you'll understand once you go. The rooms are very clean, private, bath rooms functioning fine, the mattresses comfortable, and very well priced. Artwork and furniture even unique and good quality. An amazing value and possible to negotiate if staying multiple... More

Rooms are clean and spacious and the terrace outside is a nice place to chill out in a hammock. As... More

Spent 4 days at this lovely place and Gardenia was a lovely host! Always smiling and always helpful. Rooms were big, clean and the most affordable I found on the island. She doesn't speak English though, so get ready to practice your Spanish! Best value on Isabella, and I looked hard. Place is just 1 block off the start of... More

Our Spanish speaking ability is almost non-existent, and same for the Owner's English speaking abilities, but she spent as much time as we needed to communicate effectively. Always smiling and often cooking up a delicious storm, our host made our stay quite pleasant. Her elderly (93 years old) father (very cute and nice man) and daughters help around the guesthouse,...
