This place was an absolute gem to find during our 3 week island-hopping tour of the Galapagos. Its a gated hotel at the top of the hill a half mile from town. We were given a large room with a kitchen area at one end, this had a table with stools and a tablecloth, a fridge with a big jug... More

We booked "budget" hotels on 3 islands through Sharksky and this was the nicest of the three. The room was comfortable and pretty quiet despite having only screens (no glass) on the windows in the front of the unit. There was a concert of some sort on the edge of town we could hear pretty clearly on the Saturday night... More

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved every second of it. The room was massive and clean, the showers had a really cool design, the beds were comfortable, there was airconditioning, a safe, and a little kitchen. We also had a pool just outside our bedroom door, and they offer free bicycles for their guests (save you from... More

Alexandra and her husband are very kind people who run a great establishment. the rooms are very clean and comfortable and the pool is a great addition after a long day exploring the fantastic island. Its not far at all from the Malcon and serves a great breakfast. Its already a Tripadvisor winner and if it carries on as is,... More

We stayed in Pimampiro Hostal for the first night of our 5 day backpacker tour we booked with Sharksky ecoadventures. We upgraded our hotel options to include this hotel based upon Trip Advisor ratings and were really happy we did. The hotel is a few blocks up the hill from the town, but this is not a problem as it's... More

We stayed there for four nights after coming back from our Galapagoa Cruise. It's a lovely place and the people were very friendly. The breakfast was excellent and our cabina very big only for two people! The hosteria is located a little bit away from the port. It's ten minutes walk but no problem at all. We loved this place...

We stayed at the Pimampiro Hosteria, Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, from July 6 - 8, 2012. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were met at the airport upon our arrival. The breakfast provided was delicious, and the rooms were clean and spacious. We enjoyed a balcony view overlooking the pool & city. The walk to and from the waterfront is... More

Of all the hotels we stayed at on the Galapagos Islands, the Pimampiro Hosteria was by the far the best. The set up was cool, the food was delicious, and there was always someone there to answer questions or make a cup of tea or coffee. If I ever return to San Cristobal, this will be my first choice of... More

A delightful find, on a hill about a ten minute walk from the port town. Four of us stayed here for two nights before our Galapagos Cruise. Very friendly service, especially from the manager who gave us accurate info about day walks we might take on our own, and from the cheery breakfast staff who went out of their way... More

I've been several times in San Cristobal island with groups and this is one of the places where I come back with a happy face! Alejandra & Fernando the owners are always with a big smile in their faces. Suites are great, a lot of space. In warm period the pool is a relaxing option after local visit. Breakfast is... More
