“Solid no frills budget option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We flew to Galapagos independently and this was our first accommodation. It is located in heart of Puerto Ayora just near the main port. Rooms are basic and clean with private bathroom with electric showers. No breakfast, no kitchen facilities but there are cheap eating establishments nearby. Wi-fi. Owner friendly although not overly flexible. Not much to say but good choice for those on a budget

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

We found this to be the nicest, most cost effective place in Pto. Ayora. What else do you need in a hotel but a clean comfy bed. We were seriously 2 blocks from the ocean and all the shopping/restaurants. This was recommended to us by a friend as an awsome little place to stay and we are glad we did. It was very low cost but was clean and had great staff and service.

Room Tip: AC costs more so check the weather and see what you need.
