I loved the quiet, but I didn't love climbing 4 flights of stairs in the heat. I would recommend asking for a room on the first or second floor. I had a single room which was very small but perfectly acceptable. The air conditioning worked very well. The wifi doesn't work in the rooms, however. Breakfast is $5 so I... More

The hotel provides the very basics. Hot water is plenty and AC strong. Poor breakfast. Don't eat here unless already included. Hotel owner also arranges tours on the Galápagos Islands. Internet speed is very slow. Okay for the price. The entire port city is within walking distance. I recommend against taking the ferry to other major islands October to January.... More

A few highlights from our three night stay (and we didn't even have high expectations, based on the price): 1. The sheets were not clean. We found spots of blood on the fitted sheet, so we slept in the other (smaller) bed. The next day we returned after the room had been 'cleaned' to find the same spots of blood... More

This is a really great budget hotel. The air conditioners are REAL air conditioners, not dehumidifiers. Showers are hot and they don't use the electric shower heads (they're dangerous....I've been shocked before by these). Staff is very friendly and helpful. The only complaint I have, if pressed, is that the wifi only works in the common area next to reception,... More

We enjoyed this hotel. Location is good, it's very, very clean and the staff are very friendly people. The room was pretty big, bed was good. Wifi could be better. We got a good deal on the price, cheaper then what we could find online. Good quality for this price.

This place is located near the tour agencies in the harbour/pier area and it is near the busy food street as well. This makes the location very good - though you will not get a room with a spectacular view. The rooms are clean and the staff is nice - you can buy breakfast at the hotel, but you might... More

The hotel was clean, the air conditioning worked, and they had free water in the lobby. It was also one of the cheaper options. The wifi only worked in the lobby and was unusably slow, but that is not uncommon on Galapagos. Also, you could hear sounds if anyone was moving around in the hallways. Not bad for the money,...

I stayed here for 4 nights and have no complaints. The room was large with plenty of closet space, and was cleaned daily. Fresh towels were provided daily too. There is no view to speak of, but it was worth the price, and conveniently located.
