We came on Friday and other places were checked were booked out or way out of our price range. Older Lady at the reception was not very welcoming. We didn't like smelly room at the ground level but she offered us the other one on the floor facing the Street. For strange price $33,60 for the double room with the... More

I only stayed one night here and then changed to a different hotel. There are much better options right around the corner (read my review of Hotel Espana). The air con is NOT air con. Dont be fooled. The shower has one of those electric shower heads which are dangerous (I've been shocked before). And it was also only semi... More

The staff were really grumpy and unhelpful. The room was a bit grimy and smelled awful. The shower was tepid to cold. It's cheap for the area ($12) but I wouldn't recommend staying here at all - best to pay a little extra and go elsewhere that doesn't make you feel uncomfortable just being there.

Positives - the hotel was very cheap half the price of most other private rooms in town - despite the stories below we did stay here for three nights to save some money as Galapogas is very expensive and you want to save your money for tours. Also location is very good. Negatives First sign of trouble was when the... More

I stayed in a 3-bed room in Salinas for most of my stay in the Galapagos Islands. Originally I was in Galapagos Best Homestay, which is a LOT better - but far from the centre. So on a whim, my friends and I decided to switch to this one which was cheaper, right in the centre and next to the... More

The women on the front desk was rude and grumpy. The room was fine but the electric shower gave you electric shocks when you turned it on and off and even when I was in the shower! This was worrying and made me very paranoid. On another note - DO NOT USE the Galapagos Evolution Dreams tour provider attached next... More

Wasn't the best place we've stayed but nice enough for the price. Free Wi-Fi was very slow but that's the case all over the island. There was no hot water, but again this was common in the places we stayed. Room was clean and our beds were made for us every day. A bit of light came in through the... More

The location of the hostel is convenient... And that's the only good point of this hostel. They say there is wifi, it never worked for me, there is no hot water in the "low price" rooms (20$ is not what I called a low price, but anyway), in the room the walls are not complete so you have no privacy...

We stayed there as a couple for one night. After a couple of nights without AC and less sleep we tried this more pricy place in hope to rest better. We inspected to room on the upper level which was clean and offered a compfy bed. The AC was new, worked well, almost noiseless. Nevertheless we were not happy with... More
