“Basic not so clean cheapy”
Reviewed 22 November 2012 via mobile

The rooms are basic and not so clean. Location is central (although I do not know what could be considered not central in this small town:-) The owner booked us on several tours which were good. All in all a basic but cheap accomodation possibility.

I stayed 3 nights here and really liked it. The Hostal is only one block back from the beach and a couple of blocks from the main plaza. The staff were super helpful. I was traveling alone and as you generally need 2 or more people for tours to run they helped me link up with other travelers and made sure I was well looked after on the tours.
The room was small but nice - having the mini fridge was a big plus. It was cleaned daily and towels were replaced. The little outdoor courtyard was also a nice spot to relax. Overall I really enjoyed my stay here!!

We booked one of the $150 2-day inclusive tours of Isabela from Puerto Ayora, and this was our hotel. It had two beds and a bathroom, and the room was decent size and had air conditioning, a mini fridge and a TV with a few channels. There was a nice outdoor patio with hammocks and cushiony chairs. The location is towards the west end of town near a couple bars and only a block or so from downtown. The management wasn't over the top friendly but not rude and overall we had a good experience. I don't know the independent price, so I can't comment on it outside of the tour but it worked for us. The garden hose in the yard was very helpful in cleaning our shoes after the muddy Sierra Negra hike.

Room Tip: The inner rooms by the patio are probably the best option.

We stayed here for 5 night as part of our Galapagos adventure 2-wk program & it was terrible. The room was so small that we have to open our bags on the bed & then close it to store it at the corner. The paint in our room is peeling & there's mould on the showerhead. Cleanliness is also not a priority in this hotel. Our sheets & towels were not changed for the entire 5 days. Am pretty sure there's bed bugs too. Found out that the room is really cheap at USD15 per night including breakfast but if you can, pay more and stay somewhere else. When we arrive, the room next door was being painted and was already rented out the following day although the paint fumes are still so strong. David, the owner, is quite helpful and location is good but there's so many other hotels in Isabella to choose from. I will not stay here again.

Very close to walk to town & restaurants. Room included dinner & it was an easy walk into town to the designated restaurant where you gave them a ticket for your meal. You could accept their meal choices, or select something else and pay the difference in price. Service was incredibly slow, so be aware of this if you have to leave early for a tour. Single rooms are VERY small & dark, but you're not in the room that much anyway. Once the AC was turned on, it drowned out all outside noise. Cable TV in the room if you understand Spanish, which I enjoyed. Hot water is available, but there's NO WATER AT ALL between 10pm-5am since they turn off the pump. When leaving Isabela via the ferry, you need to be at the dock by 5:30am, so there's not much time to get ready since the shower doesn't work until 5am. Hot water finally flowed at 5:10am. Quite a bit of space under the door so quite a few ants were in the room every day, which means you close any bag on the floor every time unless you want ants in everything. Since there are other hostels nearby, I would not stay at this location again.
Check in was easy & folks were very nice.
