We stayed here at Hostel Loja for four nights, we arrived on one of the afternoon speed boats (around 5pm) and they had arrive to pick us up, which we were not expecting! The hostel is a short walk from the main strip, and has lots of convenient stores around. The room was great and the bed was comfy, the... More

Our visit at Hostal Loja has been incredible. Our room was cleaned daily. The room itself is spacious and it's clean to start with. This has been one of the better hostels we've stayed in while Island Hopping. The water is a little fussy, but there is hot water. Neither of us had a cold shower, adjusting it was tedious... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights in June and I definitely recommend it if you're planning on traveling to the area. AC worked great, comfortable bed, clean, very spacious, dresser with night stand and even a table with chair in the room. We stayed on the bottom floor in room 2. The courtyard has hammocks, tables and chairs.... More

Simple clean rooms with good bathrooms and comfortable beds. We had to single rooms, which were great value for money. The lad who did most of the work was really friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again.

Liked the central courtyard and the very friendly family. They helped with recommendations and advice. Wifi good in reception but non existent in room. Rooms can be a bit noisy from other guests in the courtyard. The worst thing for me was the the bedroom smelt very badly of damp. I stayed 2 nights and by the time I left... More

Breakfast and service take it from 'average' to 'very good'. Location and room overall is very average, all you need, nothing fancy. Wifi didn't reach the second last room of upstairs, but it was not a problem going to the reception use it. Price-quality ratio is good since the breakfast is included. Recommendable for travelers.

Clean rooms with aircon, hot showers and big breakfasts, but DO NOT RECOMMEND BOOKING TOURS OR TAXIS THROUGH THEM. We booked a Los Tuneles tour and the guide (Fabian Salazar, license no. 127) did not respect park or guide rules, and gave tourists the wrong impression of how to behave in the Galápagos by touching wild animals -- something that's...

We stayed 4 nights in Loja and we liked it. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff is friendly and the breakfasts are very excellent (and huge!), and can be served - in a lovely courtyard- very early in the morning (which is nice when you have to leave early for a tour). The hotel is a 5 minutes walk to... More

We stayed two nights in the hostal. People were very friendly, they welcomed us with a fruits snack and they managed to help us to organize all our activities on the island. The place is not very close to the Main Street, but 5 min walking is not so much. Breakfast is good with fresh fruits and scrambled eggs.

Stayed for two nights. Room rate was excellent compared to other similar places in Port Villamil. Has a nice yard where the free breakfast is served in the mornings. Breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit, juice, bacon, toast. pastry, coffee/tea. Right next door to a supermarket. Port Villamil is a small town so not far from anywhere. Taxis are available...
