Stayed here for the first two nights of our Galapagos trip. Nice garden downstairs, I stayed in a room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Clean and comfy, I've never really stayed in hostels before so can't compare, but no complaints at all. Had breakfast on the second morning which was lovely. Great little rooftop area with hammocks as well.... More

Nelly Saltos is the owner of Casa de Nelly, a small villa in San Cristobal, quite close to the ocean. Nelly picked us up from the airport and even drove us back when we discovered we had forgotten a bag. The room (for 4 people) was extremely comfortable and clean. We had a small kitchen at our disposal (not very... More

We stayed for 3 nights as a couple. I had been in San Cristóbal earlier and wanted to stay close to the beach La Playa Mann, as well as close to the Malecón. For that it was perfect. The price is probably a bit high for backpackers, but affordable to most. Unfortunately, we were not offered breakfast. We did not... More

After a night in a cheap backpacker's, the family wanted more space and light. Found Nelly by walking by. Super-friendly lady. Got a beautiful 3-bed-room on the top terrace. AC worked well, never had any major water temp/pressure problems. Drinking water dispenser in room - great for filling bottles for excursions. Great value, nice views, good dining recommendations, easy to... More

I stayed here for two nights as part of a trip round the galapagos, no complaints at all!! After my luggage was lost by my airline, the lady who runs the place was so very kind, lending me some clothes and couldn't be more helpful. Would happily stay here again, and plan to in the future!

We can confidently say after having spent a month on Santa Cruz, Isobela and Cristobal, that good hotels, dining and value for money is virtually non-existent on any of the Galápagos Islands...BUT there are literally a handful of exceptions and Casa de Nelly is one of them. Our room was superb, excellent views, clean and windows on three sides that... More

We came to San Cristobal after a cruise, with no accommodations booked in advance - just with some hotel names written down. After looking at several places on the malecon, we went to check out Casa de Nelly, which stands practically on the "outskirts" of town (a few minutes' walk, anyway). Nelly showed us around. For the first night, the... More

We just recently came on a school based trip with teenagers and the rooms were all so close together that they could spend lots of time in the rooms and in the courtyard area. The breakfast was wonderful and the people were so friendly! We walked into town and to the beach, and always felt safe and happy returning to... More

This is a great location just a few minutes walk to the Malecon. The rooms are spacious and everything works. Our room had a refer and there is a common kitchen where you can cook if you choose. We paid a bit more for a top floor room with a view deck. Worth every penny. Nelly and her staff go... More

We stayed for two weeks at Casa de Nelly, located a bit away from the main fray of the malecón and near lovely Playa Mann beach. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the A/C is absolutely wonderful to have on this sweltering island. There's a kitchen that guests share, and other than the usual diffusion of responsibility... More
