    Good stay
    This hotel was good for its location and very good for breakfast but the internet connection was the worst I had in all 3 islands of Galápagos that I have stayed.

    Very Good for the money
    Nice, quiet hostal, with a small swimming pool, free breakfast, free drinking water close to all services in Puerto Ayora. Staff pleasant and accommodating.

    Well priced hotel
    We were a family of four on a scuba diving trip and were looking for a reasonably priced hotel with 4 beds. North Seymour provided us with this option - nice room with 4 beds and a small balcony and one bathroom. The room was clean and staff were helpful - the small breakfast was adequate for our needs. Overall we had a great stay!

    Very good 8.0
    The staff was really helpful. The room was always neat and clean. The room was spacious. It was a definitely a good value. It was a little farther walk to Charles Darwin St. than I had expected, but it is close to the access path to Tortuga Bay beach, so if you are a surfer it's a great location. It is also quieter because it isn't on the main drag. Breakfast was fine except they usually didn't have fruit which is one of the things they say they include, but they always had bread, jam, ham, cheese, one kind of egg, some type of rice and usually a type of platano dish. coffee or tea. You could certainly fill up if you are on a budget. Bottled water dispensers were always available to fill up your water bottle which is important since you can't drink the water. The pool was more like a large hot tub size and was pretty murky, so we didn't try it out.

    Very good 8.0
    Clean and comfortable budget hotel. Room was big enough for our family of 3 adults. One double bed and two tein beds beds provided in room #1, 3rd bed wasn't needed, but eniugh space to move around. Bathroom was little small and towels provided seems to be worn, so we used our own. No hair deyer in the bathroom. Breaknfast was good for all three days we stayed. Eggs, rice and plantains are served every day but dofferent ways and you can request eggs to be done the way you wanted. Bananas, bread, coffee, tea and juice were also served. Overall excellent value for the money and 15-30 min walk to the port.

    Great staff ; great breakfast; great price.
    The hotel is right off the Main Street of town, about s 10 minute walk from the port. The breakfasts are great- and that is worth 6 dollars a day. Cold water always available. And there is a little pool to cool off in after a hot day.
