We arrived in San Cristobal with a reservation at another hostel that apparently had closed without us knowing. Walking around we found Casa Mabell and couldnt be more relieved after a long day of traveling. The owner is a sweet older man who gave us a great room with aircon, a kitchen, great wifi connection and an ensuite bathroom. It... More

We stayed two nights at casa mabell, which was exactly what we were looking for at the time. Spacious, good wifi, good hot water, and under cover balcony for drying clothes. There is a kitchenette with fridge and hot plate. Drinkable wster is provided. Well located and good price. I'd recommend it.

I stayed two nights at Casa Mabell and I would highly recommend it. The accommodations are reasonably priced and simple ; a very clean room with a comfortable bed, satellite tv, a dresser, side table and air conditioning. Some rooms come with an in suite bathroom, mine did not. Not a problem since it was located right next to my... More

I stayed in the upstairs apartment. It is 1 bedroom, but actually has another bed in living room rather than a couch, so great for friends or child in this room. Mercedes met me from the dock, her husband helped me with my luggage upstairs. She was very helpful. Later, I had a problem with an island transfer and needed... More

At less than half the price of similar hotels on Santa Cruz, Casa Mabell was by far our favourite accommodation on the Galapagos Islands. We had the downstairs room (s) and were very happy indeed. A very comfortable bed with cable TV, fridge and a piping hot shower. Unlimited fresh drinking water and kitchen facilities are upstairs. There is even... More

I visited Casa Mabell with my husband and 3 kids. We had a room on the first floor it had 2 rooms one master with AC and the other with fan. There were 2 restrooms which was nice since it was 5 of us. TV, and the fastest WiFi we experienced in Galapagos. The price was excellent! The room connects... More

We were busy with day trips and exploring the island every day so we didn't need a fancy resort. Casa Mabell provided us with a clean place to sleep and shower that is extremely convenient to the town. It's right in the action (not that there is much!) and about a block away from the waterfront/pier. We found it on... More

Came with family of 6. Mercedes and her husband were very hands off but always checked to make sure everything was good whenever we crossed paths. The wifi was solid, the beds were comfy, it was always clean when we returned and overall it was just one of the best stays while in Ecuador for me.

My family and I stayed at Casa Mabell for 2 nights. The location is very close to the pier (less than a minute walk), you're right in the heart where all the restaraunts and souvenir shops are. There's a bakery nearby for morning pastries. The owner is very friendly and the place is very clean. The only con I would... More

Casa Mabell is located two short blocks from the main pier in San cristobal. There's good pastries and restaurants within that same walking distance and lots of tour places to book your excursions. Town is small so you can walk from the airport to casa mabell in 15 minutes(we did). They keep it clean and were very friendly with us.... More
