This hotel offers great value, it is clean and tidy with great staff and lovely food. The rooms on the top floor offer brilliant views of the sea front and harbour. This hotel offers extra towels for use if you are snorkelling or swimming.

Rooms are great and clean, kitchen can be used and is well equipped, and staff is really really nice and helpful. It's great value for money and cheap compared to other option in San Cristobal and in the Galapagos. Wouldn't think of a single reason not to stay there.

I stayed 6 nights at this hotel (for 15 dollars a night) following a recommendation from fellow travellers. Only prices are backpackers', the standard is very good with spacious rooms, hot water, aircon and a fan, soft towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner... Well equipped kitchen at your disposal, free tea and coffee. A short walk from the main pier (10...

I enjoyed my weekend stay. Room was clean and comfortable with an ocean view. Bathroom was huge with hot water and staff was very friendly. Location was great, only about a minute trek to the boardwalk and food. Only downside was being on the main street. Lots of car traffic noise.

This hotel was booked for us on a very expensive tour we were on.We were told it was a three star hotel. What a joke. One of the worst hotels we've ever stayed in. Shower was leaking when we first arrived , they fixed it but the cover for the shower head was just resting on the top and there...

Wandered to find a place with a Chilean couple we were with. Found here and at $30 a room we took it. It was fine though didn't have windows to outside. I got partially electrocuted by the electric showers that seem to plague South America and and reception was closed when we came back in time to pick up our...

For sleeping it is ok, but don't expect any other service. The room I got had everything I expected, and it was clean and fully functional. The Wifi was ok, both the speed and the coverage. The breakfast was very petty.

The place is passable, but nothing special. They have a primary building down the street from where my group stayed. Ours met our minimal needs for one night but is hardly a place that I would stay as a destination. In fact this building appeared to be used only for groups and overflow. The main hotel looked nicer. Importantly, the...

Decent room. Great air conditioning and thankful the refrigerator was working. The rooms have tricky locks and you get about three different keys to open up your room. Plenty of closet space and decent bedding made the stay nice. The breakfast was really good. It was much better than other places at Galápagos.
