The White House was a pleasant surprise. Vary comfortable, clean, close to everything. Vary secure felt safe. Management was helpful and friendly. I usually don’t do reviews but this one really deserved one. Price was good also.
Gordon, mx5 night trip
Good 6.0
Not really what we expected
One big motivator for selecting this location for our stay was the "24 hour shuttle" available for $30 (round trip) from Baltra. This was attractive as it is quite difficult to travel from Baltra airport to Puerto Ayora ($5 bus, $1 ferry, and then a $25 taxi or $5 bus depending on your arrival/departure). Upon booking our stay we attempted to contact the hotel multiple times to arrange the shuttle and had our hotel in Quito attempt to arrange with them on our behalf to learn they would not provide any help with transport. The WiFi is terribly slow and unreliable. The only toiletries provided are tiny bars of soap. Additionally, the surrounding area is delapidated. We would have enjoyed Puerto Ayora more if we had stayed somewhere else (perhaps closer to the port). The listing should be updated to correct these incorrect details.

Clean, comfortable and good value.
This was a very comfortable place to stay and the communal kitchen is a nice convenience. There is a large (for the island) grocery store 2-3 blocks away. It is only a short walk to Baltra, which is a major street with anything you might need and runs straight to the harbor.

Fantastic place to stay!
You won't find a better value for your money on Santa Cruz! Air conditioning, good WiFi, hot shower, nice shared kitchen, a wonderful courtyard area, and the most friendly and helpful of hosts. It is family run, and every member of the family treats you like their own. It is centrally located and within walking distance of any place in town. I had 10 nights here, and every single one of them was great! I would absolutely stay here again, and I highly recommend this hotel!

Very good 8.0
simple hotel with great staff
Check in was easy and hassle-free. The owners were very gracious and kind helping me contact my tour operator for my airport transfer. The rooms are basic and clean, only stayed 1 night so I didn't get to spend too much time in the hotel. I like the open spaces in the place, nice to enjoy some fresh air in a hotel.
