8/10 Very good

Very basic but did the job. The offered coffee was not very appealing, but they provided bottled water in the kitchen.

8/10 Very good

Good economy hotel in Santa Cruz
The room was clean, no frills. Fresh towels every day and very nice housekeeping. The front desk was helpful when they were around, not overly friendly. We did not use any tour services on site. I think my favorite part was the woman who came to clean up during the day. I didn't get her name, which I regret (my spanish was very rusty and she was a native-only speaker), but she was very nice and always asked about how we were doing. We even saw her out in the town one night, and she asked how our night was going. Overall, I thought this was a very nice stay for the cost.

6/10 Good

Not really what we expected
One big motivator for selecting this location for our stay was the "24 hour shuttle" available for $30 (round trip) from Baltra. This was attractive as it is quite difficult to travel from Baltra airport to Puerto Ayora ($5 bus, $1 ferry, and then a $25 taxi or $5 bus depending on your arrival/departure). Upon booking our stay we attempted to contact the hotel multiple times to arrange the shuttle and had our hotel in Quito attempt to arrange with them on our behalf to learn they would not provide any help with transport. The WiFi is terribly slow and unreliable. The only toiletries provided are tiny bars of soap. Additionally, the surrounding area is delapidated. We would have enjoyed Puerto Ayora more if we had stayed somewhere else (perhaps closer to the port). The listing should be updated to correct these incorrect details.

Clean, comfortable and good value.
This was a very comfortable place to stay and the communal kitchen is a nice convenience. There is a large (for the island) grocery store 2-3 blocks away. It is only a short walk to Baltra, which is a major street with anything you might need and runs straight to the harbor.
