We stayed for 5 days in this house right at Av. Charles Darwin. The shower was hot and had WiFi in our room which was really good value for Galapagos. The owner was extremely friendly with us and we can definitely recommend this place.

We stayed here for a few nights. The rooms are not luxury but clean and the price is compared to other places on the galapagos very cheap. Felipe helps you with everything and knows all about the galapagos!

Spent 4 nights at this place. It's cheap (for Galapagos), very clean and great location in the center in front of the ocean. But what stands out the most is the owners dedication to service beyond anything I have ever seen, a true WOW-experience. Felipe would not only help us with recommendations and guidance to all the sights on the...

It was a nice room, had a nice breeze off the ocean. You can see the ocean in the distance. The bed was decent. The shower...
