Alright, I love the Galleon House. It is by far the cheapest place to stay on the island. It is safe. And it is right in downtown Charlotte Amelie, just above the city with great views. It has a porch facing the city and overlooking their little pool. In the morning they serve a complimentary home made breakfast. The rooms are a little bare, but comfortable and clean. The air conditioning works, and this place is about half as expensive as any other place on the island. What more can you ask for?
I have read some of the other reviews and have to agree that it is not for everyone. You have to walk up quite a few steps to get up there, and it is not the Marriott so don't expect it to be. I have stayed here twice, once in 2009 and once in 2011, and I never had an issue with uncleanliness or bugs of any kind.
That being said, I love the ambiance of the Galleon House. The owners are really nice. And nowhere else on the island can you get a centrally located hotel that provides you with breakfast for under $100. I would specifically recommend this place to a younger crowd looking to do the Caribbean on a budget.
