10/10 Exceptional

This has been the most perfect stay of my life. The property is located in the center of everything (the Port, restaurants, pharmacy and medical services, banks, among others. The staff completely understands what the guests need. Breakfast is very flexible in the menu, on-time, and exquisite. For families and couples, the property is perfect. We are planning to go back next year. Congrats!

Budget Accommodation
Good friendly people and nice rooms with AC. Bed & breakfast type of accommodation with big beds. Average breakfast, quite basic. But courteous when needing very early breakfast (before 7am). Water provided. Because this is a family hostel, expect some noise from the family's conversations in the evening. It was a bit annoying because we were waking up 6.30am (scuba, island hoping) - we did not complain because the owners are very nice people. Payment only in cash which was weird for a registered hotel.

Great Service
Really great value and helpful. Helpful not only with regular things like tours and taxis, but also advice on coping with changes in vacation plans due to Government actions and protests. Plan to return.

Friendly. Accommodating. Easy. Definitely recommend for travelers looking for a clean place with AC and friendly staff. Breakfast included was tasty and simple, and fresh made. I didn't realize we pay the hostel directly upon arrival- I thought I had paid Expedia, but I double checked with Expedia and on my credit card activity, and that's how it works. Wifi is slow, but it's slow everywhere in Galapagos- so I don't consider that a negative. The host was friendly and very helpful. I also appreciate that the location was NOT in the heart of town to create some distance from noise. I also felt very safe at this place.
