    The hostel is very nice, especially the outside area. It's 5 minutes from the center of town, 3 minutes from the water. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I had a wonderful time.

    Out of the five places we stayed at on the Galapagos Islands, Gosen was by far the best. The host/owner is insanely hospitable, and went above and beyond to make our stay on the island great. He even walked us around town, helping us book tours and ferry tickets. It was obvious that he took pride in his hotel, as everything was spotless. There was also delicious coffee available throughout the day. The best part was that this place was somehow within our budget. Best bang for your buck!

    We got locked inside the Interpretation Center (they just pad locked it from the outside while we were roaming about) and our guy here ran down and flagged the staff as they were leaving...would've been a long Night at the Museum :p Would definitely stay again...oh and the complementary coffee was on point. Also easy to meet people as your communal areas are right as you walk into the hostel

    Close to the harbor so that's great, and the rooms are very cute and clean, but its a bit expensive for what you're getting, and the atmosphere is a bit lacking despite its "hang out" space out front. No talking outside after Ten pm is a big buzz kill, and no free tea, only coffee.... which a lot of people don't drink. Overall it's decent.

    We stayed for three nights, we felt there was a weird atmosphere, like we were intruders in someone’s home. When cooking in the kitchen or just relaxing felt as though the owner was staring at us made us feel very uncomfortable. He was also very abrupt when talking to us, in terms of making sure we were quiet after 10, that we needed to pay NOW and check out NOW. Unwelcoming atmosphere. The place overall had a good location, nice rooms and was very clean however Wifi was bad, no hot water.

    When I arrived they said they were full and had not seen my booking. They then helped me by phoning another hostel they work with. This was was worse quality than was expecting and further from waterfront. I stayed 4 hours and found alternative accommodation.
