We stayed here for two nights after a 5-day cruise. It was really easy to walk from here to Tortuga Bay and the little mangrove sanctuary - worth the 15 minute walk or so if you have time to kill. The location is great - it's nice to be off of the main street, but very close to walk. The... More

The main issue as others have noted is the traffic noise. This budget hotel is located just two blocks from the main shopping/restaurant area but somehow is on the corner where it seems all the local traffic is turning so there is constant noise. I had my window open - then I shut it and the noise was exactly the... More

Hostal Germania is a budget hotel located two blocks from the main Puerto Ayora pier. This place is one block away from the path that takes you to Puerto Ayora main attraction: Tortuga Bay. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is courteous and will answer any questions you have regarding tours to... More

The rooms in this guesthouse are lovely and clean with air con. Our room was cleaned every day with fresh towels and soaps laid out. The man who owns and runs the guesthouse is lovely and he is very helpful. He arranged our ferry crossings to Isabel island and San Cristobal and he even waled us to the ferry at... More

While the island is beautiful, I told the owner Rafael that he was the best part of our stay in the Islands. Without his assistance, our trip would have been a complete dud. He was friendly, helpful, patient, and funny. The hostel is well located, clean, and our room was especially spacious (#2). A nice light breakfast was included each... More

The rooms are noisy but the location right by a road makes it very noisy. There was noise from neighbours, dogs and traffic all day long and from early in the morning. It's a 2 minute walk down to the harbour though so the location is good in that sense. The rooms are quite big and there's free wifi. The... More

Fantastic service, great breakfast, kind and attentive owners, great price, fantastic rooms. This place is pure class, its a shame they are a minute or so walk from the sea front as they deserve a more fitting location- this is the best place for early morning walks to tortuga bay and is opposite the fantastic serene laguna ninjas. The rooms... More

The room was nice, big, and clean equipped with a tv and wifi internet service. The hostel is located in a quieter area close to the main center of the town. When the owner and his family were present, the service was friendly. However, they often weren't home or at the front desk even when we had scheduled a time... More

I stayed at this location several times during my two week trip to the Galapagos. The proprietor, Rafael, was kind and accomodating, allowing us to leave our luggage while we explored other islands. He assisted us with travel planning, tickets and tours, which were significantly below the going price from the travel agents in town. The room was clean, cool,... More

I stayed here with my husband for our first 2 nights in the Galapagos. It was very clean and comfortable with a decent amount of space. We enjoyed our 2 nights here and then we moved on to another hotel because the price here was a bit over our budget. You can definitely find rooms that are clean with aircon... More
