No problems whatsoever with this hotel, has a good clean pool and sun area out the back and is in an excellent central location. Breakfast was included and was more than adequate. Staff were helpful enough and knew the area and any questions I had

Also, they charge you 12% on top of that for bank charge when you pay by crédit card (same in every shop in thé Galápagos), but they do it while you pay through Paypal (no charge from their bank, so...

I got stuck Island hopping from San Cristobal to Isabella in Puerto Ayora because I didn't buy my 2nd ticket from Santa Cruz to Isabella in advance. I had already stayed 5 days in a different hotel, but it was quite far from the docks and Hotel Castro is only a block from the dock, perfect for my 6 am... More

Wasn't planning on staying here, but the hotel we booked had overbooked, and we were directed here. The hotel is very old, but has a lot of charm. I loved the charm!

Although it's clearly an old building (some parts of the ceiling seem to be falling any minute), this place is a walking distance from the center of Port Ayora and pretty much everything you need - a supermarket, ATM's, restaurants, taxis, etc. The rooms were very clean, and the towels changed everyday. The room was spacious and quite hot, but... More
