We arrived and told that the key to our room wasn't ready yet. Later that night they tell us the truth - they had no key and had to switch the locks. Well, for 3 days we stayed there they never changed them. Every time we wanted in our room we had to ask for help. But then I learned... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days. It was very convenient because the bed was very comfortable, the AC worked very well, as well as the Internet. The staff was very friendly. It was not in the center of the "action", so we could really rest at night.

The hostal is located off the main stip a little bit but only a short 5 minute walk away. The rooms are clean and the breakfast consist of scrambled eggs, a rolls, some jelly, a slice of cheese and juice. They have hot water, air conditioning, cable tv and WiFi. The WiFi is great in the common area and can... More

I traveled with my senior father in the Galapagos this February. My father has never stayed in a "hostel" before. Galapagos Dreams was a dream to be at. Jonathan the owner went out of his way to make my dad and I feel comfortable and helped arrange all our tours, including those to different islands. Clean rooms, with hot water,... More

Good location near restaurants and shops. There was great air conditioning in a clean room. Our room on the second floor was quiet. The breakfast was fine. The staff was very helpful. I would stay here again.

I reserved for double room for $75/night for three nights. Jonathan, the owner, canceled it without penalty. I stayed in a single room for one night. it is not a very nice room, but for 30 bucks, it is a good value. Jonathan is also very helpful in answering all kinds of questions, day tours, giving me ride to Tortuge... More

This was an okay hotel for a short stay. Unfortunately they put us in the very first room, right next to the hotel lobby/breakfast area- and the curtains didn't close all the way! I walked out of the shower literally to find myself staring at a worker sitting at a lobby table tapping her cell phone (as they all seem... More

My partner and I stayed for a week with a trip to isabella in between. Firstly when we asked the price for a double, Jonethan said $35, we said ok a little higher than the place around the corner we got offered ($25) but we will go with the reviews, ok. Then he explained $35 each... totally not worth $70... More

My wife and I stayed here through the booking of our tour. We stayed 3 nights and I must say it was the largest and cleanest of all the places we stayed in our 2 weeks all over Ecuador (except for a friends families house). The wifi is spotty (pretty much everywhere we stayed) but the dining area and room... More
