I have been staying there for about a week and I believe it was a great quality/price deal, perhaps the best you can find across the Galapagos (which are far more expensive than Ecuador inland overall). I never take the time to write review and I didn't even have a personal account in Trip Advisor before now. Yet, when I... More

Gringo Kevin, thanks for your personalize tour of Puerto Ayora waterfront area and many excellent tips. I stayed about week and half and had very positive experiences. In fact, very good accommodation and price! Felt like home away from home feeling. He was very understanding and flexible with the reservation. He would return your money if your plan changed while... More

My correspondence with Kevin was good. No language problems since he is from USA. He was prompt in his replies and provided detailed instructions on getting from the airport to the B&B. After checking in, he gave us a personalize tour around town pinpointing good places to eat and shop, have laundry done, places to visit and how to get... More

If I owned a hostel I wish I could run it as well as Kevin and his lovely wife. As everyone has mentioned, exceptional rooms, a kitchenette, AC, the place is clean and spotless. There is nothing that is missed. "Please don't use my white towels on the beach, I will give you a beach towel". He emailed me a... More

This hostel, while not centrally located in Puerto Ayora, is a great spot. It's clean, airy, comes with loads of extras (drinking water, kitchenette, A/C, on site travel guide [Kevin]) all at very reasonable rates. Walking to the center of town or taking a taxi was no problem at any time of the day or night. The owner, an American... More

This place is ideal if you are planning an independent trip and are trying to keep costs down. The rooms are spacious, pleasant and have lots of added extras eg free purified water, a sink, microwave and hotplates and a fridge. This is great if you want to avoid eating at restaurants the whole time. Kevin was great and was... More

My friend and I had a great experience at Galapagos Best Home Stay. Kevin is more than accomodating and has an encyclopeadic knowledge of the attractions on Santa Cruz. Rooms are spotless, beds are large and comfy and the shower is the best we have had in South America. Thanks for a fantastic stay!
