The location is very good in the middle of town. It is a fifteen minute walk from the ferry dock. It is about two blocks in across from A small school. the owner, Carlos, who has a store and tour agency a block towards the water is very helpful and speaks excellent English. You will find him in his hammock.... More

I stayed here in August 2014. I suffer from motion sickness so for my trip to Galápagos I did not opt for a cruise, but instead to sleep in the islands and take day trips. This hostel was an excellent option, very clean, good towels, good breakfast (lots of fruit, coffee or tea, eggs, yogurt, fruit juice, bread), near to... More

My wife and I were traveling with friends, and were the only guests at the time (late December 2014). Obviously the hostel was quiet, but so was the neighborhood. So restful sleep was no problem. Staff was very helpful and friendly, though you may need some rudimentary Spanish language skills to communicate effectively. Breakfasts were on time for us to... More

Rincon de George, named after the sadly deceased but legendarily fecund and long-living giant tortoise, is a cheap and cheerful hotel right in the heart of a great little town. We came with a large group so I had a chance to peer into most of the rooms: they're all pretty much of a muchness, rather on the small side... More

My girlfriend and I had a great stay here for 3 nights at the end of March and into April. The hotel was very close to everything in town, and very clean and new. We were the only ones staying there those nights, so it was very quiet. We had a choice and for some reason I picked the small... More

Great hostal with everything you could need (mini fridge, television, somewhat spotty internet, friendly service, option of relatively inexpensive laundry service). Walk just 2 minutes to get to the few restaurants on the island and beautiful beaches. A little over a mile walk to the main pier where you can walk another 15 minutes to snorkeling or take boats out... More

Really clean hotel, located near the Laguna where you can see flamingos and other animals. The bed was comfortable and the room/bathroom, very clean. Unfortunetely, too small if you have a lot of lugage. As this hotel does not do a lot of publicity, many rooms were empty and everything was very quiet. We paid the extra 5$ per person... More

The hotel room was exactly what we were after: reasonably priced (we paid $25 per person per night for a twin room with private bathroom) and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did a tour to the volcano ($35 per person) and snorkelling in Las Tintoreras ($30 per person) with Carlos as our guide, and had a... More

We are a retired couple from Canada and have visited South America several times. We feel this is one of the best places we have stayed. It is clean, quiet, and well maintained with air conditioning, fridge and TV. Carlos speaks English well and is a naturalist guide. We went on two tours with him and were impressed with the... More

We stayed there three nights as a family. Apparently the price was higher than indicated in the previous review ($ 120 per night + $ 25 for breakfast for the five of us). The hotel is indeed clean, beddings are ok (although a bit stiff), and the owners are nice and welcoming. However, given the price range on Isabela, there... More
