We stayed there as a couple in one of the double rooms for two nights. The friendly lady at the desk was so nice and helpful we felt very welcome from the first moment. The room was clean, the attached bathroom too. We had a large double bed which was compfy. The hot shower worked well all the time. They... More

It was very cheap and really close to everything. The interior was really basic, but everything worked, hot shower, and clean. The Wifi was good, even it didnt reach my room (No 7). This room was also close to the street, but I couldn't hear any noise in the night.

Didnt like it a lot. Not that clean but very cheap. Didnt like the bed or bathroom, not that clean and a bit old/used. Very near, easy access, nice owner, just stayed for 1 or 2 days, never felt confortable :(

The rooms are basic but the sheets and bathroom are clean. There is a choice of a room with fan or air con (slightly more expensive). No hot water, but with the hot weather we didn't need it anyway. There were quite a few bugs in the room. Book exchange with good range of English books, and a few other... More

We flew to Galapagos independently and this was our first accommodation. It is located in heart of Puerto Ayora just near the main port. Rooms are basic and clean with private bathroom with electric showers. No breakfast, no kitchen facilities but there are cheap eating establishments nearby. Wi-fi. Owner friendly although not overly flexible. Not much to say but good... More

We found this to be the nicest, most cost effective place in Pto. Ayora. What else do you need in a hotel but a clean comfy bed. We were seriously 2 blocks from the ocean and all the shopping/restaurants. This was recommended to us by a friend as an awsome little place to stay and we are glad we did.... More
