We booked this hotel for 3 nights in July 2014. We paid $50 per room per night. The room and bathroom were clean but I do not recommend this hotel. My first impression was not good - there were too many warnings: "If you spot towels, you must pay $15", "Mattress urinated all be paid in full" My second impression... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. It was very clean, with a nice sitting in the lobby in hammocks. We stayed on the 4th floor (lots of stairs), and there was construction on top starting every day at 7am, but it didn't bother us because we left the hotel early. The hotel is two... More

Really enjoyed my stay at this cheap and cheerful hotel close to the center of Puerto Ayora. Reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the downstairs open lobby with the hammocks and couches is a great place to sit and relax. Room was small and basic but bathroom was adequate with hot water so no complaints from me!

We were kind of hesitant about this hotel after reading the reviews, but it was one of our better cheap hotels on a 6 month trip. Our room (and the hallways) felt renovated, and was quite spacious. Yes you do need to walk the stairs, but come on, it's only 3 floors max. The receptionist Daniel is VERY nice, speaks... More

Nice simple hotel located downtown puerto ayora. Staff is nice and prices négociable. Wifi is weak generally speaking and the breakfast really simple... The other guests were nice and quiet. The hotel is decent and clean but be ready to climb stairs :)

If you have a room numbered after 9 be prepared to walk up LOTS of stairs without any assistance with luggage. I was first given room 31. After climbing approx 10 flights if stairs the aircon in the room was so unbelievable noisy I had to ask to be moved. I was moved to room 9 which was marginally better.... More

Excellent staff, location, and price. The room was clean and the shower worked fine (always a possible iffy feature in a low cost hotel). Free breakfasts were enough to keep us going until lunch. Although we didn't take advantage of this service, I think it would be a good place to arrange tours.

Great location being only 2 blocks back from the main esplanade and restaurant street. After complications with our ferry to san Cristobal of an afternoon, we had to change our plans and stay over night at hotel espana again. Walking in on late that afternoon, the male receptionist was super friendly and organised a room for us. Forgetting that we... More

For $40 a night for two people in a private room with bathroom this is a bargain. Rooms are very clean, spacious with two beds and fresh towels and soaps are provided. Bathrooms are clean, huge and hot (good pressure) water is also available. Air conditioning is installed. Location is ideal only two blocks down from the water (about 5... More
