My friend and I stayed here for 8 days. The rooms were clean and had their own shower and toliet. Some rooms have a small fridge. The garden out the back with hammocks is a great way to relax after a long hot day. The owners are helpful and friendly. A small book Exchange is offered. Fresh cold water is... More

We stayed here for one night on our last night in the Galapagos as we were leaving from San Cristobal Airport. We found the room to be very basic and reasonably clean. It isn't a new hotel so there are signs of wear in the walls and furniture. The bathroom was fairly small and the shower was interesting. They use... More

Extremely good value, went as part of a tour group and loved the relaxing vibe of the place. Clean room with twin beds, warm shower (with added resident gecko which was a novelty!). Just an overall tranquil place to stay on the island. Very close to all amenities also.

This is a simple accomodation, but with warm showers and airco, so it is really a good value. Laura is a perfect host, she just speaks Spanish, but that was no problem for us. She helped us planning our trip and took the time to explain everything. The hammocks in the garden were lovely. The wifi was good for Galapagos... More

It was a very nice stay in Casa de Laura. We loved the hammocks to chill down and just relax in the beautiful garden they have. The rooms were nice and clean and have aircon (really nice because it was really hot). The couple who owns the hostel are very friendly but don't speak any English. There is no breakfast.... More

Located are the end of a short dead end street, the only nighttime sound heard was the early morning rooster which would have been drowned out had I elected to use either the ac or the overhead oscillating fan. Showers were hot, all hammocks are shaded, friendly backpackers all around sharing travel secrets, and friendly owners. The price was $25... More

We stayed twice, 8 nights at the beginning of our holiday on San Cristobal and 3 at the end. (Our son had stayed the previous year and recommended as he knew it was the sort of place we would like.) We were welcomed and despite us having only very basic Spanish Laura did her best to communicate with us and... More

I contacted Laura a few days before I arrived to San Cristobal to make a reservation, which she confirmed. Upon arrival, she tells me she doesn't have a room for me as she is all booked out. So I had to look for another hostal. After the cruise I went back as it actually seemed like a nice place. She... More

I visited the Casa de Laura at the end of July 2014 and stayed there for more than a week. I didn't take a boat cruise so I had time to explore this island and what it has to offer: beautiful beaches, nice scuba-diving locations, relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous sunsets, some good restaurants. At Casa de Laura for 20$ per night... More
