Great decorations
Staying in small hotels sometimes can feel crowded due to small rooms, but the decorations and large community spaces made it seem like home!

Really relaxed vibe, only a short walk to the beach and main hub of San Cristobal. Owner super friendly and although we didn’t use the kitchen as we only stayed a short time, it would be really handy for a longer trip.

2/10 Poor

Awful hostel with an obnoxious owner
Awful experience. The owner claimed to have not recieved my reservation and then lectured me on how lucky I was that he had a room that night. This is not a hostel but a cheap guest house that has very thin walls and was extremely noisy. Despite speaking minimal english, the owner was extremely condescending and I ended up leaving 2 nights early and he would not refund me the money. There are much better places to stay at on the island.

6/10 Good

The owners gave me a difficult time when I wanted to rearrange my booking. They told me I had to pay for my entire stay when the cancellation policy stated I owed one nights fee for changing my reservation. Another person I had met at the hostel had to share his single room with another guest, yet was still made to pay full price.

Great location and nice management. They really treat you as part of family rather than customer.

Ood l9cation, great value
Angel was nice and responsive. Very quiet property at night, with the exception of a rare barking dog. Good location off the main street with a bakery and laundry nearby. 5 to 10 minute walk to waterfront. Lots of fun watching the sea lions there. We enjoyed using the central kitchen where we met other travelers. Has a great courtyard with hammocks and a comfy seating area up stairs with a large screen TV. Overall great value for the price.

6/10 Good

The host was very nice and helpful and the common areas were quaint, but not as nice as the pictures. Location was okay, but adjacent to some pretty run down areas and abandoned buildings. The electric shower has exposed electrical plugs and wires is very dangerous to shower if not very careful. Host should fix this before renting to more guests. All the rooms are sliding closet doors with a small luggage lock, so consider elsewhere if traveling with any valuables.
