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

Out of the hundreds of places I've stayed, this place sticks out. It's my first one star review. First, we needed a place when we couldn't book this night in our preferred spot. We walked in 2 days before to book and didn't check the Tripadvisor reviews for this place (big mistake obviously). The lady behind the desk begrudgingly dragged... More

At the time of writing this (December 2014) there was a lot of construction going on in the neighborhood (think jackhammers) and it seemed like the projects would be ongoing for some time. On this fact alone I would recommend some of the other hotels. Was charged 35USD a night for a room with two beds, hot water, an old... More

We stayed 2 nights after staying in flamingo hotel. The rooms are ok. But The people operating the place are not nice and will do not more then the minimum neccesery. The place is overpriced and you will get more in cheaper price in other hostels around.

The only thing going for this hotel is its location, the cafe next door 'Ramy Subs' and the $15usd pp p/n. Otherwise it is totally a shamble. The owner never even got off the phone when I wanted to check in, nor managed a smile the whole time we were there. Then on check out they tried to over charge... More

Clean rooms, hot water, uncomfortable beds. Hotel owners unfortunately have a problem with people in that they don't appear to like or want to help or even great their customers. Quoted one price and tried to charge more. I think they would be happier retired or in another profession which does not involve the human race. Its a shame as... More
