    Great value for money! Clean room with a bathroom. Couple of small supermarkets nearby that are way cheaper the ones by the coast. 15-20 min walk from the city center. A very friendly owner that will go out of her way to accommodate your needs.

    Staying here was great! I got a kitchen in my room, and very important an AC that worked very well. Whenever I had a problem the owner was around to help. The only downside was the location which was about 20 minutes walking distance from the down center near the docks. This made it difficult to visit my room between activities, but wasn’t too bad as I got to walk through the explore the more residential areas of Puerto Ayora every day.

    Great hostel and the cheapest I could find in Santa Cruz. Very clean, good AC, hot showers, there’s even a kitchenette in the room (in dorms as well), a grocery store nearby and a small breakfast is included. The only downside is that it’s far from the center (a 20-25 minute walk), but you can get a taxi for a 1.5 USD.

    Ana the owner is amazing and it feels like your staying at your mums house, not a hostel:) Location is about a 20 minute walk to the town and the port but it’s nice to be away from the tourists and be more with locals:) I would highly recommend!

    Really nice clean room with nice hot shower. Small kitchen with a constant supply of tea, coffee and water. Walking distance to the port but maybe a bit far if you're walking in the morning with a backpack.

    Good place to stay on Santa Cruz, slight walk into the main town which was fine. Surprisingly the sheets were changed every night and a towel provided for free were certainly bonuses I hadn't experienced at other hostels- would stay here again

    Dorm rooms are excellent, have maximum 4 to a dorm with own bathroom and kitchenette. place was very clean and had a maid service daily. negatives: It was about 30 minutes walk from the centre, not a difficult walk but could make things difficult sometimes. The staff although lovely coyod never be found when needed, despite knowing when to expect us on checking in and out there was no one to be found and we ended up having to ring to get someone to attend to us. Not what you want!!

    All rooms have private air con and kitchen and bathroom which is brilliant. There’s a family of women who seem to run this place who are very welcoming and chatty. Only downside is the 15/20m walk from downtown Santa Cruz. Although it’s very easy to grab a $1.50 taxi.

    The location is removed from the center of town. It was customary to hear roosters early in the morning and dogs barking late at night. The room had three beds and a bathroom and was in clean and great shape.

    This hostel is fine. The beds are comfy and it's pretty clean. I did not actually see the staff/hostel owner until I was checking out, which was pretty weird. Also, the place was pretty empty. Not much atmosphere and really not good for solo travelers. The kitchenette in room is great, but the communal kitchen was filthy the entire time. It's about as far out of town (Puerto Ayora) as you can get, so expect lots of walking/taxis. Overall, it's an OK hostel, but I would not stay here again.
