Your hotel was very easy to get to, in town and close to everything. It was quiet and clean and great value. We appreciated the water cooler and morning breakfast. We have already recommended your hotel to other friends that plan to visit. Claudia was most helpful in helping us find out way around and describing the various options for... More

A little hotel, on the Main Street of Sam cristobal. It's clean and complete. Own fridge, airco, hot shower and decent beds. A good place to stay a night or 2 before taking a cruise. The Galapagos Islas is a must see if you are in Ecuador. The nature and the landscape is so different from what I have seen... More

The rooms run off an outside corridor (windows onto the corridor )and are a good size, clean and have a fridge .TV, A/C.Unbeknown to us the delightful owner of the hotel had sent a car to pick us up from the...

I give this property a "very good", mostly for the great value here. The Señora who runs the hostel, and the office supply? store on the street front is very kind and helpful. We looked at a lot of other places for similar money, and they were either full(some we couldn't understand why), or just didn't stack up. Rooms are... More

As a college student on a low budget, this was simply exquisite. The two women who run the place are incredibly friendly and welcoming, offering up anything necessary. The rooms are cleaned daily (not spotless), and new towels and soap are given. We went in a big group during low season, so were able to get a lower price. The... More

For reason we had to move from our first hotel, and we picked this one and we will go back to it. For 10$ less per night, we got more comfort, like very clean ensuite room, including your soap, shampoo and towel, fridge in the room and a little lady always there all day to welcome you and inquiring how...

This is indeed a 2 star hotel so expect 2 star amenities. Paid $65 per night per room. Rooms are OK size wise but very basic, almost back to student days. Small (Sat) TV, fan, airco. Bathroom also very basic. Breakfast is included but at a cafe nearby (good food when you get there). Free wireless in front lobby. No... More

Very clean and comfortable. 5 minute walk to airport or to the waterfront shops and restaurants. We paid $40 with AC and fan (a must in Galapagos). Good wifi in lobby. Electric hot water shower with good water pressure..

We booked this property via a reputable agent before starting our cruise in from San Cristobal. I needed to choose a property that was more affordable and I had read the review for this hotel in the Lonely Planet. I had previously tried to reserve a room via email, but did not hear back from the owners. The property was... More
