I don't know how this place has such a good review on TripAdvisor. It's one of the worst hostel I've stayed at. The first room I was given looked alright from the start but after returning later in the evening I noticed that 1) the toilet was leaking and starting to flood the bathroom and 2) the room was crawling...

We stayed here for a couple of days but left for somewhere nicer but it wasn't too bad. No hot water and no Wi-Fi (despite this being prominently advertised) but clean and friendly. Super convenient for the port if you're going on day trips and some rooms on the top floor have ocean views.

This seemed a very rustic hostel. Ok for people on a budget for one night, which was $30 for a double by galapagos standards. Tiny bathroom, I had to poke my knees out the door whilst diagonally sitting on the loo! The sink tap was actually under the sink as the one on top didn't work! The shower was cold.... More

Very convenient location right on the seafront near the harbour . Rooms are very basic and slightly ramshackle but generally clean. Despite being held together with duct tape and rubber bands, the shower also worked adequately. The manager/owner lady was somewhat stern at first but actually turned out to be very helpful and accommodating. All things considered Hostal Elizabeth was... More

The people were generally nice enough to us, rooms were clean enough and had every thing we needed but the bed was SO hard I've never felt anything like it, i looked in the windows to some of the other rooms and they looked like maybe they had softer mattresses so maybe we just got unlucky I'm not sure lol....

Comfortable rooms, hot showers, great location, reasonable price. Manager was friendly at times and short with us at others but overall was a nice lady. The wifi was very temperamental. We were told this affected the whole island. This may be true so will not judge too harshly for this. The sheets were changed and the rooms cleaned daily! We... More

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
