Clean, comfortable, icy cold air conditioning. No kitchen facilities, there is a fridge/freezer but it's a bit smelly and not very cold. Good location. Poor wifi even by Galapagos standards. Cheap enough at $40 per night for a double room.

Close to everything. You can do almost all walking. Try Tortuga Bay (more or less 7km walk) or Darwing station (more or less 5km walk). Dive centers are really close, resturants, suvenir stores. The hotel is decent and cheap. A good place to stay if you want to save money.

Great staff, very clean and modern hostel, very close to everything. Nothing offered in the rooms: no hand or face towels, no toiletries, no hairdryer, no water glasses, no hangers, no lamps, no clock or alarm-clock, really nothing, just two beds, two towels, A/C unit and TV. Kitchen was remodeled so no breakfast. No real tour ticket counter just inter-island...

We stayed here for four nights and found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. The room was clean and comfortable. It was also very affordable. Perfect location as we were able to access almost everything by foot. Check in and check out were also very easy. Definitely would stay here again.

We stayed here twice because we like it so much! The first night was New Year's Eve, because the hotel we originally booked was awful beyond words. The Hotel Espana had a double room available, so we grabbed it. We were so pleased to see the room was pretty, and incredibly clean. It looked like it had been recently remodeled....

Aside from the excellent location, this place offered a cool meetup spot and a helpful staff during the day. Downsides, the wifi is terrible, the breakfast is a waste, and the night staff is uninformative. Check it out. You cant beat the price and it sleeps very comfortably.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. Small family-owned hotel, just a few blocks from the waterfront and restaurants. Attractive lobby with plenty of seating and decent WiFi. Clean and comfortable rooms with good air-conditioning. Breakfast was $5 per person and it was delicious and plentiful, with organic orange juice and bananas from the owner's farm in the...

A nice, inexpensive hotel. No negatives. Large, clean, quiet rooms with comfy beds. Friendly, helpful staff. Perfect location two blocks from the main pier. Most restaurants and shops less than five minutes walk. Plenty of hot water. Good AC in rooms. Inviting lobby area with painfully slow internet (an island wide problem, not so much the hotels).
