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

I loved this little hotel. I travelled to the Galapagos with 3 children age range: infant- 6 years old. I stayed here for nine nights and would definitely return if I went to San Cristobal. I had the room by the pool which was two rooms, a common area with a couch, tv, and a kitchenette area, and a bathroom.... More

I agree with all that everyone has been saying about this place. Very friendly owners/staff, probably the best condition of most places I've seen in San Cristobal, perfect breakfast. One caution..it's across the street from a "Galapagos Fried Chicken" and party room. We had a noisy stay in Quito and were looking forward to some quiet here...but there was a... More

We stayed here for two nights during a Galapagos tour. The rooms were fairly nice. There was a trick with the shower (only turn the knob enough for water to come out, or else the water was cold instead of hot!), but otherwise it was great! The pool seemed lovely, but what I remember most was the breakfast. It was... More
