The hostel is close to the main street, restaurants and the beach. Rooms are clean and include fan and air conditioner. The lobby is big and comfortable, in just some minutes you start to meet people and share experiences of the islands, for me was really good as I was travelling solo. I totally recommend this place.

The room was clean, spacious, the shower was warm and the personal was friendly and helpful. There was room service everyday. A bit unecologically they exchanged the soap and towel every day. Internet only in the common areas. You can bargain quite a bit here.

We stayed at this place for a week and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. The include Cable TV and fan (extra cost for aircon). There are hammocks in the courtyard which are a nice touch and you can buy food in their resturant if you can´t be bothered going out. :) Wifi is free and accessable from... More

The hostel is within a block of the main street of the bay. It has a private bathroom and comfortable beds. It is a very charming hostel with a nice patio area. Also offers wifi. Esther, the owner, is a doll and she has a helpful staff. I would highly recommend this place.

We were booked into this hotel from a travel agency in Quito and were pleasantly surprised. This was the one high point of that travel agency bookings. The hotel is small (20 ish rooms) but has only one main entrance, which makes it more secure. It is near downtown Puerto Ayora on the island of Santa Cruz, near discos, Darwin... More

OVerall it's a good hotel for the basic things it offers. It's a familly run business so you get a more personable service. I recommend it for people searching for a decent place in Galapagos. It's good for backpackers and budget travellers. Cleanliness The room was cleaned and the thin towels were changed every day. Even though they are still... More

The hotel itself is decent, clean and not a bad price. However we booked a snorkeling trip thru the front desk (Hester). She promised a safe trip in a big boat. We paid our money and got to the dock but were handed off to a local fisherman who only spoke spanish and had a small rickety boat with NO... More

We were booked into this little hotel on Santa Cruz. It's very homey and very, very clean. Rather spartan room decoration. AC is an additional charge. Fans are provided. It is really only hot in the middle of the day, when everyone is out. There is a common area with an outdoor kitchen and small garden. It is set back... More
