Beds were comfortable and rooms furnished well, but for $40 usd a night we got much better places elsewhere. The bathroom needed a good clean - the obvious things like toilet were cleaned daily, but walls and crevices had lots of dust. We also weren't provided with water like everywhere else in the Galápagos (at $2.50 a bottle on Isabela... More

The accommodation itself is really basic, my girlfriend and I stayed in a double room with private bathroom that was ok (clean, ac, comfortable and shower with hot water even though some times didn't work). For $5 each we had breakfast included which was simple but tasty (nice bread, butter and jam, eggs and coffee or tea) and it's totally... More

Hostess was a very sweet lady. Showers had the best moderated hot water I had on all of Galapagos island! Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Wifi also worked really well! Good location downtown and affordable rate! Would definitely stay here again :)

It is a family running business and they are very nice and kind. They booked the next accommodation for me. It is centrally located. The room was big. I used the kitchen fridge to store a couple of stuff. They serve breakfast for $5.00 but I did not buy it.

Stayed here for my 5 days at Isla Isabela and couldnt be more satisfied. Large comfy beds and nice showers. Not always hot water but this has come to be a standard for us in Ecuador. Wifi was not good, but we didnt find any better on Isla Isabela during our stay either. Free drinking water at the reception. The... More

I was staying in Las Gardenias for 4 nights during February 2015 and must say that it was probably the best hostel of my whole 3,5 month south America trip. The price of 15$ is really good for the nice rooms, a good working hot shower and the wifi. But most important is the incredible friendly family that owns the... More

Great hostel with amazing people running it. The rooms are adorable and it is cheap for the accommodations, location, and service. Hot water, comfortable beds, wifi, etc. my favorite are the hammocks. So relaxing. Did I say it has the greatest family running it! Homely feeling.

As far as the hotel is concerned, the location is central to the port town......although this is not hard to find....you'll understand once you go. The rooms are very clean, private, bath rooms functioning fine, the mattresses comfortable, and very well priced. Artwork and furniture even unique and good quality. An amazing value and possible to negotiate if staying multiple... More

I stayed 2 nights at las gardenias with 2 of my friends. We were welcomed by Emma, the owner's sister, and Pedro who truly love their island and made us feel at home upon we stepped in the cozy cottage. Rooms are clean and spacious and the terrace outside is a nice place to chill out in a hammock. As... More
