I work on Galapagos, every year I spend a few weeks to do research on these islands. I've been to all inhabited islands, stayed at various places on each. Every year I ask around for new recommendations. I'm so glad a friend of mine recommended La Jungla in Puerto Vilamil on Isabela Island. The Hostal is at the very end... More

I spent several days here with a friend in a room. The fact that it is at the end of the town, with nothing between you and the practically private beach is amazing. Can't be beat! Plus you're away from the noise. There is also a kitchen to use, which is nice if you have an early morning tour and... More

Great location with the best view around the island. The owner is a great man full of histories (if you speak espanish) and marvellous host. In front of the hotel you have the longest beach in Isabella and is practically for you. Totally recomended.

The first time I have felt let down by Trip Advisor. The La Jungla is plain old run down. Pablo seems to be in it for the money with no real interest in providing a positive experience for visitors. He is much more into his tour business. Also he is not the most dependable fellow, neglecting to take us to... More

At 15 usd it was cheaper than my first place on santa cruz and suited my budget more. It was therefore a pleasant surprise that the room and private bathroom was loads nicer and the water is proper hot and heated by an external heater. The owner is so nice and helpful and helped me with lots of information and... More

We bumped into the owner (Pablo) when we arrived to Isabela and he seemed nice enough of a guy to at least check his place out. We ended up staying here for three nights and it was an absolute pleasure. We had a fabulous ocean view from our bedroom, free WiFi, a shared kitchen, and 24/7 hot water. All for... More

We had a great stay at El Jungla! the rooms were spacious and nice, big kitchen (could be cleaner but was fine), 10 steps from the ocean, very quiet at night, really nice! and Pablo and his family will welcome you and propose you tours (Papis tours) that you should definitely take! they're good prices and greatly organized! Great memories!

It's ocean front, i had a huge window over looking the ocean on the second floor. Reliable hot water, wifi, comfortable beds and a small cafe. It is an eclectic little place, none of the linens match but it is clean and you can't beat the price. No air conditioning but great ocean breeze made it perfectly comfortable. Owners are... More

The owners are really nice people and very helpfull . They don't speak English, but you can easily manage with basic Spanish. The location near the huge beach at the... More

We had a huge room with a gorgeous view of the ocean. It was clean, although this being the tropics there were quite a few bugs to deal with. No air conditioning but it was fine for a couple of nights. The staff were all very friendly and helpful even though we didn't speak much Spanish. Breakfast was delicious with... More
