We stayed at Casa Mabell for 4 nights on San Christobal and I can't think of a better place to have spent our time. The flat our family enjoyed was clean, spacious and included a full kitchen and air conditioning in each bedroom. The price was extremely reasonable and the owners were also very helpful in assisting us in seeing... More

We stumbled on this hotel when we arrived in San Cristobal. It's about a 15 second walk from the malecon, several restaurants, a lavanderia and several tour operators. It was $40 ($45 if you want to use the aircon), had a wireless router in the room, a covered deck to hang swimsuits and towels, and two rooms that included a... More

We found this on airbnb when we became a little frustrated with the lack of available cheap options on San Cristobal island. What a find! We got a great deal and our stay was really comfortable. We got by talking Spanglish with both Mercedes and her husband, and very much enjoyed our time there. It's also in a great location!

Very good value for money. We stayed in 2 places in San Cristobal, Casa Mabell (for around $40) and Casa Playa Mann (for $225). Obviously Playa Mann is much better, but there's no point spending that much money in Galapagos accommodation in my opinion. $40-80 is more than enough (even if you can afford more). The owners are humble and... More

When we arrived we were kindly greeted and shown two different rooms and allowed to pick which we preferred. Rooms are spacious and clean and the location can't be beat. You get access to wifi, air conditioning, clean drinking water, mini fridge, kitchen complete with stove, appliances and dishware. Unfortunately the airline changed our flights so we had to cancel...

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 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
