My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and were unable to extend as they were booked. The welcome and ongoing service from Mercedes was wonderful. Our room was large and very comfortable, with an attached private bathroom next door. Extremely clean and good Wifi from the common area. Location just off the Main Street so perfect for getting to... More

My friend and I stayed there for two nights after meeting the landlady by chance at the pier when we arrived on the island. We rented the ground floor apartment: two separate rooms, one with double bed, shower, toilet, fan, AC and TV, and the other one with a single bed, toilet and fridge. The rooms were perfectly neat, the... More

Spent one night here before departing on our Galápagos cruise. Great price, clean and a wonderful air conditioning unit in the room. The owners were friendly and the facility was very clean. Wifi worked great and we felt very lucky to get such a great deal on the room after shelling out a small fortune on the cruise.

We rented the entire 3-bdr apartment as a group of 4. It was great having a kitchen which we used mostly for breakfast. The balcony was a nice addition although it would be nice if there was more than one comfortable chair (the rest were plastic deck chairs). It is very hot in San Cristobal so the a/c in the... More

This is an extremely good deal. Very clean, great location and a real shower with hot water. The TV, AC & wi fi worked excellent. There is a common kitchen area which we didn't really use but it was nice to have the fridge to cool our wine:) Mabell was also kind enough not to charge us for the extra... More

Probably one of the best accommodations on the Galapagos that still has a reasonable price. The three of us stayed at the apartment no. 1, which was spacious, clean and functional. The rooms are cleaned every day and you get every day fresh towels, although we considered this not really necessary. Everything is pretty new. And if you don't need... More

Dear Luke, Thank you very much for writing a positive review on Trip Advisor, we really appreciate it. And we apologize for the WI FI issue. Unfortunately there is only ONE internet provider on the island (CNT-which is government-owned) and their service has been pretty bad the last two weeks. The issue was not only at our hostel, but in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Mabell is your best option in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno, San Cristobal Island, the capital of the Galapagos Archipelago. We are a family-owned hostel so we can provide the best rates to our guests. We are located only a block away from the main dock/pier and 5 minutes away from the airport. Our hostel is always impeccable, we clean the rooms everyday. All rooms have access to a full-equipped kitchen or mini fridge. We also have hot showers, Free WiFi, Ceiling fans and optional AC. We can candidly say that all of our guests have had a great experience staying with us. Please read our reviews at Trip Advisor. We are ranked #1 out of all the hostels on the island. The neon blue Galapagos ocean and its nature are literally down the street! ... more   less
