    The staff at this very inexpensive hostal were fantastic! Friendly, super helpful and with a delicious sense of humour. Our air on wasn’t working so they immediately moved us to another room which was clean, comfortable and cool! They made us a delicious breakfast, sorted out taxis to collect and drop off and were altogether marvellous.

    Great location, good breakfast, very helpful staff

    Great value for the price. All fresh ingredents for breakfast. We loved the side visit to the farm, thanks Luis. Carmen was very friendly and helped us with our Spanish. 20 minute walk to pier and Concha de Perla for great snorkeling. Staff arranged tours to Las Tuneles and Tintoria. Don't miss these. Several tasty restaurants facing the main street across from the town square. Try the set menus for $7. OK WIFI, water took about 5 minutes to get warm. We LOVED Isabella, thanks Cecilia, Luis, and Carmen.

    Beautiful island, wonderful stay

    The hostel is great, friendly staff. We had a delayed flight to San Cristobal and Fernando was very nice and helpful keeping our bags and offering a nice shower after extra beach time!

    Run by Ceci and Abita, the hotel is close to shops, restaurants, beach. The rooms are clean; breakfast is provided in the mornings. Brush up your Spanish because no one speaks another language and that can be a challenge as you negotiate various tours and prices. The women organize tours and pick ups happen right outside the front door so that is convenient. Internet is spotty at the hotel. If you need to check something online, our suggestion is to go to a near by cafe where there's free wifi and complete your work. Also if you booked online, it is possible the hotel expects you to pay on site. Check your bookings prior to going there since it is not always possible to access your records online due to weak network. Not sure if local ATMs work. The town is walkable and Abita can recommend places to visit or eat meals at. All in all it can be a pleasant stay; network connection is an issue even though one is vacationing. Ceci and Abita are very warm people and we wish them both the very best.

    Great location, delicious breakfast, and lovely family running the hotel. The bed was very comfortable and the water was always hot! Best hotel we stayed in in the Galapagos!

    There is a breakfast buffet (bread, eggs, fruit, yogurt/granola, coffee, juice) in the morning and timed so that you can eat prior to your early morning tours. Rooms in the 'main' area get windows and patios, whereas other rooms off the side of the property do not. This is not necessarily a total dealbreaker for these side-rooms but having the option of a breeze passing through at night would have been nice. In general though this was a generally pleasant hotel in a quiet area. It is situated toward the outside edge of town, but the town itself is not very large so you're near everything.
