We stayed here for one night and for that one night we thought it was OK, the breakfast was included and the rooms were affordable so great for our budget the showers were cold though and we asked to use the kitchen but they said only at night so we decided to move to a cheaper hostel which had a...

The 'mum' in this hostel is the nicest woman you'll come across. Helped us with anything she could even though she didn't speak English and my Spanish is limited. Nice beds and hot water. The rooms are a bit cold though. The breakfast is what you should look forward to, a dorm is 10$ including breakfast which includes a bowl... More

Didn't have a good stay here, Although most of the family are very helpful the girl that works at the desk during the day is extremely rude, When I said I wanted to cancel my reservation early because my friend who lives in Quito wasn't allowed to come in for lunch.. I questioned her about it and she said that's... More

We wanted to sleep in a Hostel we found on Hostelworld (Vibes). Luckily we chose the Galapagos Hostel on the other side of the street. It was cheaper and the family which runs the hostel is just amazing. Location aswell, just one corner to all the party hotspots. We also enjoyed one evening watching DVD's at the hostel. They have...

We had an amazing time on this wonderful cruising catamaran. From the outset, the crew were generous with their time and went over and above the call of duty to ensure that their guests were well cared for. Spent just under a week island hopping in the Galapagos and had one of the best times ever with my two daughters.... More

The owners of this hostel are very rude and offer very bad service. Since I had a flight at night I asked if I could stay in the common rooms for a bit and to change clothes before I would leave and they didn't allow me and even got angry. Besides, they charge you 5 dollar if you leave your... More

They kicked me out at 7 am for coming back too late while they were sleeping.....weird right? I was so nice and had to explain while they didnt speak english. So rude and not helpful about anything. I only booked it because the other hostels were full. I now see why no one else was there.

Stayed here for 4 days. Very friendly and family feeling! The owner is very nice, and will help you with anything you ask. The breakfast is very big and good. Only two problems is that the family speaks only Spanish, so if you don't know Spanish it's a problem. The other problem is that you can't leave your bags in... More
