As observed by others La Jungla is nicely located close to the beach at the edge of town. The hotel manager is helpful and knowledgeable. What makes me complain is the fact , that I had to go twice through lengthy discussions with the manager about unclear conditions using the bicycles and the (very early) check out. To avoid, double... More

Searched really long for a cheap stay. Found it in "la jungla" for 30 usd per night, per room (2 persons). Price doesn't includes any food or beverages, which is normal for the island. Unfortunately the kitchen can't be used by guests. Still, the place is super nice and clean. Hostel is directly at the beach and offers an amazing... More

FINALLY somewhere on the Galapagos where we didn't feel like walking cash machines for the business operators. Sandra was a fantastic host and runs a wonderful hostal. Our room was delightful and clean and the bathroom lovely. And she gave us a really good price for 6 people. Sandra cooked a mean breakfast for a good price too! She knows... More

At the far end of town, but close to the beach, it is a cheap place to stay that offers value-for-money breakfasts and a comfortable, though basic, place to stay. Free wi-fi was included, and each room has its own private bathroom which though small is sufficient. My room also included a free gecko and cockroach (which I didn't mind,... More

I traveled to Isabela for one with a group of students. We had a wonderful stay at La Jungla! The rooms were clean and very spacious. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and fell asleep to the sound of waves on the beach. I hope to spend more time on Isabela and would definitely return to La Jungla.

Amazing viene, amazing beach and amazing Sandra. Here you have everything. Relax, good breakfast, bike to rent, sun, sea, and the helpful Sandra, she is the manager, a guide, biologist, chef, most helpful person I have met in Ecuador. Good deal. If you can choose the "Algodon" room.

Clean, good AC, good breakfast (5USD), supremely helpful owner (rearranged our ferries when storms stranded us here for an extra night). Comfortable beds and great views from some of the rooms (make sure you ask for one with a view, not to be missed and a lovely breeze). At the far end of town from the port, by the entrance... More

Nice and friendly hostel. I had a perfectly clean double room for myself and payed the lowest rate you get on Isabella. It's the last house by the beach, so the closest you can get to El Faro, thus perfect if you surf. I would definitely come back, muchas gracias!

Stayed here for 3 nights in a seaview room. Clean, spacious and a wonderful view. The hostal is 5mins walk from the centre in a very quiet area, close to most of the attractions. The staff are professional and very helpful. wifi connection was very slow though!

A nice hostel with great location and view of the beach. We walked in and wad showed a room with oceanview at the bottom floor which was very nice, she also showed us a room that didnt have the same view and standard for a cheaper price. If you wish a nice breakfast can be included in the price. Sandra... More
