This hostel is just outside of "downtown" San Cristobal and was our favourite accommodation in all of the Galápagos. The rooms are huge with fridges and microwaves and the entire place is beautifully decorated by the lovely Laura with bright colours and quirky figurines. Along with the jaw dropping garden courtyard, the best part is Laura herself. Incredibly sweet and... More

Located close to everything but it has a beautiful garden oasis. Room was basic enough but clean and comfortable, which are the main criteria for me. Laura is a welcoming host and gave a good price on the room. It was a quiet time of year when I was there but I can imagine it is very popular in the... More

On 12 May 2016 I requested a room by e-mail. I got a confirmation by e-mail on the same day. The day after I got another e-mail saying that no room was available. I asked for explanation and I was told simply that the situation changed the day after..No apologies, not even a story to justify what cannot be justified,... More

I stayed here with my mother for a few days. Laura and her husband Tomas were extremely helpful on all fronts, giving us good information on where to go on San Cristobal as well as the best ways to get from A to B. Laura in particular was extremely friendly and helpful. Our rooms were always spotless, showers always had... More

I highly recommend La Casa de Laura. It is such a great place. We paid USD 20 per person and for the service you get it is a great price. I loved the atmosphere there. It has a beautiful garden where you can relax in hammocks. Also to the centre it is just 5 minutes by feet. The owner is... More

La Casa de Laura is such a beautiful place, with a nice back garden and great view of town. Price is good, very affordable and cheaper than other hostels. Customer service was excellent! We were a group of 7 and stayed there for 2 nights. Will definitely recommend it!

Great little place. Only stayed one night but very affordable. Clean and tidy. Great hammocks with a lovely enclosed garden. Wifi is a bit slow but a great place to rest and relax in. Off the main drag and away from the bad smell. Walking distance to everywhere.

Very lovely owners, that's the first thing I want to say. The price is cheap, but depending on what price you put for a breakfast (not included), there are alternatives who compete in the same price range with Casa de Laura. Only the "reception" wifi worked. The wifi for rooms didn't work. Not a major issue. We happened to stay... More

My friend and I stayed here for 8 days. The rooms were clean and had their own shower and toliet. Some rooms have a small fridge. The garden out the back with hammocks is a great way to relax after a long hot day. The owners are helpful and friendly. A small book Exchange is offered. Fresh cold water is... More

We stayed here for one night on our last night in the Galapagos as we were leaving from San Cristobal Airport. We found the room to be very basic and reasonably clean. It isn't a new hotel so there are signs of wear in the walls and furniture. The bathroom was fairly small and the shower was interesting. They use... More
