Jose and Juanita Helpful Hosts
We were met at ferry when boat arrived. Jose very helpful with luggage--from dock to room. Relaxed and easy-going hosts. Room clean and staff kept it so. No chairs TV very poor quality.

Enjoyable stay on Isla Isabela
Close to beach and restaurants. Room was comfortable. Hostel caters to many young adult groups. Breakfast was ample with delicious fresh juices. Not a five star hotel but was fine considering the price.

Decent hotel for the price
This location is cash only so remember to bring lots of it! Our group of 7 was down to $.60 when we got back to isabella because we assumed the hotel would take a credit card.

Perfectly adequate
For being a "hostel", it seemed pretty nice. Got a double room (two twins pushed together) with private bathroom. Big room with vaulted ceilings. Cleaned daily. Good room AC unit. Hot/cold water was kinda spotty. Juana and her husband put a lot of time and effort into running the hostel and are very pleasant and caring. Breakfast 7-9 included egg, juice, coffee, yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit. I assumed there would be a 10% and 12% addition of fees/service charge, but there wasn't. Good location near the center of town. Less than a mile walk from where the ferry drops off, but mostly dirt roads, so would be worth the $1-2 cab ride if you have rolling luggage. We caught the 6am ferry on our last morning, and Juana arranged for her husband to drive us to the docks on time for $2/person. Biggest downside was the large, rowdy college group overlapping our stay. Not the owner's fault, but that's what you get when you stay at hostels.

A great place on Isabela
If you are still alive after the bucking boat trip over, Jose and Juana will warmly welcome you, show you the island, and serve you a wonderful breakfast. This is a very simple place, but with big rooms, a fair price, and air conditioning. Everything is nearby or a $1. Taxi ride away. Do look into the 2 airlines that fly to Isabela. The sea is rougher due to global warming, guides have told me.
