The place seems nice, good location. BUT. The manager of the place has a terrible attitude who just made us take our stuff and run away from there. The prices are double then the one right at back of that place with the same conditions. There are good places in the Galapagos- this place is NOT one of them.

This is a budget hostel centrally located. It was the perfect hostel for us as we were looking for something cheap (but clean and with a good location). We had a room on the fourth floor with a nice view over the harbor. No air condition in the room but for us it was enough with a fan. The hostel... More

We changed hostel after two nights to find a cheaper deal. We found it at Hostal Elizabeth. The bed was really good (but fairly small) and it was almost impossible not to bump your head somewhere going the way up the stairs to the third floor where we stayed. The bathroom was also very small, and even though the shelves... More

We spent two nights at this hostel. It was really basic but totally fine for the price of $35. I really want to emphasize that there are plenty of budget options in puerto ayora (also on Isabella and san cristobal).This is not the only one which offers a room to stay in for cheap money. You can easily arrive in... More

We arrived on the San Cristobal Boat mid morning very hot and tired and in the middle of a parade. We saw the Hostal Elizabeth sign from the dock and booked our stay. we were on the third floor and had a wonderful view of the bay. Very friendly staff, very very convenient location. The fan was sufficient for us,... More

This hotel is quite ok. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The owner is very nice. The location is very good, everything is in walking distance. The wifi is slow but it works. The rooms are not very big but ok. The negative thing: the beds were very uncomfortable and it is quite noisy during the night. The price is... More

We only stayed one night because it was so small that you could'nt go to the toilet or have a shower without leaving the door open. It was also dirty, very noisy,unsafe & expensive for the lack of quality. We found significantly better accomodation for a cheaper rate one street back from the waterfront. The owners were very helpful when... More

We stayed two nights and he helped us a lot to arrange things like round trips, booking boat tickets and wich tasty food to eat among many other things wich made our visit to the island an easy stay. The location is just a little walk from the harbour if you arrive from a boat.

We were traveling on a budget and couldn't afford a nicer hotel. Santa Cruz is more expensive and more touristic than San Cristobal, and this hostal is in the lower price range you can expect to pay on this island. That's ok, we accepted that we weren't getting anything fancy or super comfy, but the hostel was actually *very* dirty... More
