Let's face it, if you're a young solo traveler, you're not going to find any backpacker hostel in San Cristobal. So for a hotel, this place is pretty nice. I paid for the honeymoon suite on the top floor, haha. You can get a much cheaper room, but for $80 a night it was well worth it. Great view of the bay.
All the rooms have nice aquatic paintings and artwork allover the walls. Cable TV if you can understand Spanish. Free breakfast at the Muana Coffee Bar below the hotel. Muana has some great food as well during the day.
Location, excellent. Convenience store and ATM across the street, restaurants and bars right around the corner. And you're right by the pier with all the cute aqua puppys (sea lions). Their constant barking may bother some but I find the little boogers so adorable it just made me laugh rather than annoy. You'll get used to it.
Internet access is available in the lobby room, but is very slow, if it works at all. But hey, you're in the Galápagos Islands. Forget about the internet for once!
