10/10 Exceptional

Get affordable accommodation
Gabriel and Blanca are wonderful hosts. They made our trip pleasurable by providing personalized service and help in any way we wanted and patiently answered all our questions. The hostel is on the outskirts of the town - so a 15 minute walk to the port, or a $2 cab ride. Rooms, beds and linen are clean; breakfast on the terrace is great. Its in the residential area of the town, so there are kids playing on the street and roosters crowing.

8/10 Very good

This property Called itself Ariana’s Galápagos Suites but its actually a hostal. It is situated on the edge of town - a blessing for some, not so for others. Check-in was easy and the woman checking us in was very nice and informative. The room was decent but could've been so much nicer (for example the balcony doors were difficult to open and close and there were tons of scuff marks and foot prints on the walls - what?!). The AC was very welcome as it was hit and humid for most of the time, the water pressure was good and there was a moderate level of warm to hot water, the toilet flushed wonderfully and the balcony was a nice addition to the room. The upstairs terrace was also nice as were the beach towels and the daily room cleaning. One of the main reasons we booked this place was because it said it had bicycles. NOT! that was a big disappointment especially because of its location. We wound up renting bikes from a local place for about $240 for the week for 2 bikes. Also the wifi is pretty bad on the edge of town and I totally expected that I’d be able to pay for the balance of the room by card. But no. Due to poor wifi, I had to dig into my cash supply and pay $336. This is a cash place for the most part and that put a fairly decent dent in my week’s budget. All in all a decent place to stay. If they had bikes as advertised staying on the edge of town wouldn’t be as inconveniencing.

The owners are very hospitable, breakfast was good and the rooms are large and clean. The property is a quick cab ride to restaurants and shopping. It’s a great option for a restful evening after touring all day long. The owner is very helpful providing advise regarding tours, etc. We had a great time in Galapagos.

Room was big, comfy and clean. My only issue was the distance to town (but it was easy enough to grab a taxi) and a rooster that would wake me up every morning at 4am and wouldn't shut up until some time later in the day. Also wifi not great and i had no wifi at all in the room.
