Jonathan and the rest of the staff were all helpful and very well-organized. They helped us plan our 4-day stay on the Galapagos, including helping us book trips and lending us resources (such as wet suits and a GoPro) when needed. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with AC. Breakfast was simple but good. Thank you!

This family run business is friendly, very helpful and always willing to help. As a solo woman traveler they have taken excellent care of me, going up and beyond to collect me when I have needed it. Jonathan and his brothers run an excellent establishment. I shall definitely recommend this place to others. They have made my stay on the Galápagos Islands very pleasurable.

The service was outstanding. The staff very attentive and courteous for anything that we needed. The only minor negative was, we needed to ask for toilet paper most of the time. The WiFi was weak. Otherwise, great stay.

Great location for a home base to explore the Galapagos. The best part of this hotel has to be the staff. They are so accommodating and can help set you up with whatever you need or want to see. Definitely recommend.

Great hostel close to town amazing staff
The Galapagos dreams team were amazing and went above and beyond for our every need They even ordered food for our kids so we did not have to run out after a long day of adventure. We had a special birthday party and they arranged a cake at the restaurant in town. All travel and tours were coordinated and the hotel was clean and comfortable. We had the daily breakfast with eggs bread and yogurt and the free and always available coffee and tea were appreciated. Very laid back code good for families and backpackers alike Would recommend in a minute

Wonderful little hotel -- affordable and conveniently located a few blocks from the village. Staff are friendly and helpful. Jonathon, in particular, was extremely helpful in getting us from the airport to the hotel and arranged some excellent days trips, including two surf boats that enabled us to reach some off-shore breaks. Would definitely return to Galapagos Dreams and highly recommend the hotel to others.

Great price, great people!
The room was perfect for us! Jonathan was a pleasure - helping us with our tours and snorkeling gear for our upcoming cruise. Swinging back to Galapagos Dreams after our cruise was like visiting friends!
