I stayed here for a week with my mission's group!! I had a great time-homemade breakfast, comfortable seating including hammocks. Lots of stairs to the rooms so it gave me exercise everyday. I'm glad they have pretty good a/c, comfortable beds and hot water for showers. I was here on a mission trip not a vacation so I felt blessed...

Great value for money, clean, comfortable beds, air con in all rooms, consistent hot water, friendly staff, nice communal hang out area with hammocks and sofas. We got one of their smaller double rooms for $30 a night and it was perfect for us. The staff were friendly and even advised us on where to visit while we were on...

I stayed here several times. Good location, day-time reception staff friendly and helpful, single rooms with decent attached bathrooms, hot water, powerful shower, toiletries and towels refreshed every day, cable tv with English speaking channels. Wifi only in reception area and unreliable but this was the same across the island. Only issue is that I had a problem with the...

We were delighted to find that this hotel was right beside where the bus stops, but disappointed that the first thing that the lady at reception said, that we were to pay the bill straight away. This is really more of a hostel than a hotel.It is o'k for the price but has really nothing going for it.Wifi in the...

I recently (12 May 2015) had the pleasure of spending one night in this very comfortable hotel. My room was small but comfortable with excellent A/C and plenty of hot water. The lobby area has several hammocks for guests to relax in. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful about finding/booking tours and excursions to the Galapagos Islands. Based...

This hotel is clean, quiet and has spacious single rooms with shower/toilet and air conditioning. The staff is helpful but not all speak English so try it with Spanish! Wi-Fi is a pain (extremely slow) and only available in the lobby near the reception. Breakfast is okay though the only thing that varies is the freshly prepared fruit juice (yummie)...

Great aircon, clean rooms, Internet didn't work though as the owner was always playing youtube for her kids who were in reception. She was quite unhelpful about it. Good location and reasonably priced though

Good option in Puerto Ayora if you are looking for a clean and large with air conditioning ( a relief in Santa Cruz hot weather ). I checked some hotels and the price is ok for the island average. The hotels is central located,about 10 minutes walk from the pier, but the town is relative small anyway.

Seems to be a pretty basic accommodation. On the main land I would not pay more then 30 for a such room. Single bed, no shower gel ;( air con too noisy, curtains does not block light. Breakfast is not included;( signs on the door, if you piss mattress, if you soul towels... You'll have to pay. Pretty depressing.
