We loved this friendly hostel! Ana was wonderful. She helped us navigate our way around this interesting island. The sunsets from the balcony were spectacular. We highly recommend it! Ana speaks English very well, which is very helpful if you do not speak Spanish.

Staff were very helpful and friendly providing a map of Puerto Ayora upon arrival and ensuring I understood where all the attractions were. I arrived with a sunburn on my nose the they took me out front cut some aloe from one of the aloe plants growing in the garden, peeled it and provided guidance for use. The hostel was very clean and had lots of area outside to lounge and have a drink with some beautiful views from the upper elevations.

Anna the owner is amazing and tips incredibly helpful! They give you the remote for air con so you can turn it on and off as you please. It's a $1 cab ride from town and they clean your room and make your bed on a daily basis! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice well run hostel

This was an amazing hostel considering the price. The Galapagos is very expensive and this hostel´s staff, facility, and amenities were very nice considering it was 20$ a night in Galapagos. The only issue was that it was rather far from teh center of Santa Cruz, but taxis are only 1$. Considering how much you saved it is well worth it. I was recommended this hostel from another friend and I would do the same for anyone staying at Santa Cruz.

Nice clean hostel and reasonably priced for the Galapagos. Drinking water, AC, towels and good wifi included. Maybe a little bit further from centre of Puerto Ayora(15-20 min walk) than some people would like but it is very safe. All in all very good hostel.

Two complaints - 1. No one is ever at reception, which makes it a pain to check in/out, get the wifi password, ask for recommendations, etc. You can call Anna's cell (her number is left at the front desk), but only of you have a cell that works in Ecuador. 2. The hostel is about 20 minute walk to town (the port or Charles Binford street). It's a bit far and cabs are sometimes hard to catch.

An adequate place to stay, and good if you want to make your own food. Nice that they provide free water. It could have been cleaner, the floor was particularly dirty, and the plates and cutlery all needed a good wash. We bought washing liquid and cleaned everything, and then boiled water to sterilise it all. The shower was quite nice, there was enough hot water for us both, although it sometimes went hotter or colder randomly. Quite a long walk into town, but felt fairly safe and taxis only £1

Good facilities. Clean. 20 minute walk from the town centre. Felt it was overpriced. Cheaper options closer to the town.

The hostel is quite a walk away from the centre and with 20 dollar for a 4 dorm also quite expensive. Rooms are clean though, and they have lockers. Internet is very slow.

We stayed in room 2- private with own restroom. Showers were hot, free water, and housekeeping daily to tidy up. Couldn't ask for anything more for the price! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of recommendations and a map of the city. The location of hostel is about a 15 min walk from the city center. We always walked there and back but we read in other reviews taxis are about $1. We never felt unsafe in the area, day or night. We definitely recommend!!!
