The street on which this little hotel is located isn't so attractive. But once inside the gated property, it's lovely. The pool was a hit with our teenage son. The one drawback is it's a bit of a walk from the commercial area. We took cabs, 1- and 2-dollar rides when we wanted to go down the hill, into town...

This is a lovely little complex at the top of the hill on San Cristobel island. We had a great view of the water, the room was clean and airy, the breakfast delicious, and the staff were wonderful. The pool is an added delight. Much recommended!

Alejandra and Fernando are really nice. I spent new years there with my girlfriend and we stayed for almost 10 days. Breakfast is great and rooms are cool. Best ones are upstairs.. Its a little far from the beach but you can just grab one of the bikes in the hospedaria.

This place was an absolute gem to find during our 3 week island-hopping tour of the Galapagos. Its a gated hotel at the top of the hill a half mile from town. We were given a large room with a kitchen area at one end, this had a table with stools and a tablecloth, a fridge with a big jug...

We booked "budget" hotels on 3 islands through Sharksky and this was the nicest of the three. The room was comfortable and pretty quiet despite having only screens (no glass) on the windows in the front of the unit. There was a concert of some sort on the edge of town we could hear pretty clearly on the Saturday night...

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved every second of it. The room was massive and clean, the showers had a really cool design, the beds were comfortable, there was airconditioning, a safe, and a little kitchen. We also had a pool just outside our bedroom door, and they offer free bicycles for their guests (save you from...

Its not far at all from the Malcon and serves a great breakfast. Its already a Tripadvisor winner and if it carries on as is,...

We stayed in Pimampiro Hostal for the first night of our 5 day backpacker tour we booked with Sharksky ecoadventures. We upgraded our hotel options to include this hotel based upon Trip Advisor ratings and were really happy we did. The hotel is a few blocks up the hill from the town, but this is not a problem as it's...

We stayed there for four nights after coming back from our Galapagoa Cruise. It's a lovely place and the people were very friendly. The breakfast was excellent and our cabina very big only for two people! The hosteria is located a little bit away from the port. It's ten minutes walk but no problem at all. We loved this place...
