Let me tell you that the extorcionistas and abusers are you, tariffs are established at the reception and when you make the payment of the room, you got upset to the point of striking a person of seniors and to call the police out uencing like rats, thieves to the hotel towels were carried brash. If there are scammers and...

The service is ok, rooms and beds are rather small, sanitation is excellent, wifi available, but when shared with so many others , it in reality does not work at all. Breakfast at the first floor, but be quick it is only served once.

We spent 2 nights here. We paid 35$/night for a double room (June 2016, low season, hotel was almost completely empty). The lady at the reception (who seemed to be the manager) was very friendly! The room while small was very clean and nice. Shower/bathroom too. Shower worked very well. Wifi was ok, good signal also in the rooms. Aircon...

If ou are in Isabela, stay on Insular. Excellent hotel, nice clean private rooms, with hot shower and air conditioning and WORKING wi-fi (yeeey!!), in Puerto Villamil center. The staff is very friendly and there´s a lady that can make our laundry for a few bucks in there. I strongly recommend this hostel! =)

We stayed here for 7 nights in January 2014 as part of a 3-week tour of the Galapagos Islands. It's a $25pp a night place popular with backpackers, for this we got a comfortable double bed in a smallish room on the first floor at the front with a fridge, working a/c, tv and a bedside lamp.

I was quoted $40 for a double room for two people. The room was on the top floor, across from a noisy bar that kept us awake all night on the weekend. The room was clean, but small and the shower had hot water, that was not properly regulated. You had to work not to get scalded if you turned...
