Property conditions & facilities

2/10 Poor

I waited at the property for around two hours to check in and not a single person was in sight. I called the numbers available online and none of them were working numbers. There is a sign in the courtyard with alternative numbers, and when I called those nobody answered. The listing states 24 hour reception but that clearly is a misadvertisement. In the end, I had to change hostals.

8/10 Very good

Good spot for Santa Cruz
An excellent location and good value for money in Santa Cruz, Galapagos. Maria, the hostess, is also a good cook, so take advantage of her breakfasts and lunches.
