Stayed for 4 nights in May and couldn't have picked a better place. Took the small room beside the bar which was pretty hot, but they fixed the fan and got us another small fan practically right away which made the stay easier. The location couldn't be better and being able to relax and read in the hammocks was a... More

We spent two days there. Definitly the best hostal and location on isabella island. If you want to combine excellent breakfast with surfing and a great sea view caleta iguana is the right place for you.

The casa rosada is a very nice place to stay on the Isla Isabela (i.m.o. the prettiest of the main Galapagos Islands). It is located right at a beautiful beach, with a nice beach bar included (so there are always people around). The dorm is nice and the bathroom is cleaned daily. Breakfast is included. Decent WiFi. You can rent... More

Dear clients, Thanks a million for your nice comment about your experience with us! Yes, our location is one of the best, if not the best in town! We have most beautiful sunsets with a clear view because no one is next to us, we have a surfing and swimming spot right in front of the Hotel, an iguana garden... More

I did not stay at their hotel but I used them to arrange activities for me. Emilie (pronounced Emily) was very helpful and patient with me. She also got me pretty good prices on the tours, in comparison to what others quoted me . She also had good follow up and reminders on timing for pickups etc. We did the... More

We had the best time here. Great value. Could stay here for months. Laid back. Friendly and at the quiet end of a beautiful beach. Emily makes everyone feel welcome and organises some great trips. Share the bar with iguanas.

The location of this hostel is absolutely amazing. Right on the beach at the end of a sleepy main street, with iguanas basking on every surface. The service from Emilie and the other staff is great, and the breakfasts were fantastic. Emilie helped us organise an amazing snorkel trip, and we hired bikes to visit the Wall of Tears. The... More

Dear guest, Thanks for your review. We just want to correct once information mentioned in this review. The shared bathroom upstairs is not for ' a few rooms' it is for 2 rooms, what we believe is very reasonable. And yes, we are on the beach, so sand travels with our guests inside the hotel! We clean all day long,... More

Great location and atmoshpere. Fun bar, it was really laid back and the bartender had good taste in music. Emilie is the best and so very accommodating. She made reservations for the best snorkeling ever, a last minute flight (saved us from taking the 2 taxis to get to San Cristobal that day), and for a last minute hotel on... More

Having booked our stay months out we were very excited to get there from seeing the photos online. We wanted a beach front, chilled environment where we could swim everyday, hang out in the hammocks and explore the island. Once we got there we realised it was everything we wanted and more. You can go there as a family, couples... More
