Exceptional 10.0
Great and Unusual Place to Stay
The hotel is on the edge of town, but you can easily walk to the Darwin Station, the good restarants and coffee houses and the fish market and harbor. Our host was very helpful with suggestions on activities, how to structure our 5 days there and arranged for our departure from the Baltra airport, including sightseeing on the way. The pool is a great amenity. Breakfasts were plentiful and we were very comfortable.

Very comfortable stay. Gianna was so warm and friendly. Loved the unique property. Generous breakfast. Short walk to town

Castle in the island!
Cool looking castle in Pto Ayora. The hotel is a 10 min walk from the main st on a couple of dark roads (seemed kinda scary but realized this town is anything but that). Hotel is owned by 2 wonderful individuals that will help you booking any kind of adventures you may want to embark on. Recommend walking to the kiosks in town for some local food. Wifi is spotty, don't expect to do much navigating while here (why would you anyway?)

Good 6.0
Not what I expected
The first thing that I want to say about this place is that it is listed as a 2.5 star HOTEL but they actually categorize themselves as a "hostel" (it is listed that way on the exterior door and even on the shampoo bottle in the bathroom). These two labels create different expectations; maybe this place is fine for a hostel but it didn't feet like a hotel. Positives: the hosts are friendly and offered to help book tours. Breakfast was tasty. They provide free water each day (which is great because tap water is not really potable). There's a good selection of TV channels. Negatives: Breakfast is from 7:30am to 9:30am and you basically go sit outside at a table and wait for someone to serve you. This is very awkward. While eating breakfast, birds swarm the table and try to take your food. They are probably rare birds and some people may like to see them, but birds are dirty and who wants them flying all around their food? They really need to move breakfast indoors or install screens or something. The rooms are small and don't get a lot of air circulation so they feel dank and musty. Additionally, there were a ton of ants in the room. Internet is awful; it barely connected. Finally, the hostel is located about as far from town as lodging gets. It is maybe a 10-20 minute walk to town (depending on where you want to go). It doesn't seem like much but at the end of a long tour day, it isn't great to have to walk so far for ANY kind of food or entertainment.

Gianna was great! The room was great and the hotel just a quick walk from everything. Amazing breakfast compared to others we had on the island at B&Bs. Highly recommend. Also Gianna can help you get a tour!
