We stayed in top floor very spacious apartment with view over the town offering good sunsets. Very smooth check in and welcome with good tips provided. 10 minutes walk down hill to waterfront. We found restaurants in back streets provided better value for money, bigger helpings and provided accurate receipts than some on the waterfront. Plenty of shops with supplies as we had breakfast and lunch in the apartment. Wifi so-so; improved on walkway to apartment. Quiet neighbourhood. Slept OK. Good hot water for shower. Thanks, Stephanie and Eric.

before you book check to make sure the huge renovation which is happening right now has been finished. It was a building site, in fact I would say it is actually dangerous to have open at the moment. They began work before 7am, bits of concrete and building materials falling off the new floor above us. The owners apologized and I suggested they actually give us some of our money back. However, that didn't seem to be an option. When the place is finished it is clean, great pool, owner is kind and very friendly. Only 4 stars because it is a bit far to walk from the waterfront. Oh, and forget the 'balcony' it is a walkway, not a balcony.

It was our first time at a hostel, and it exceeded our expectations. We were very well taken care of here. Had rooms 3, 4 and 5. Very clean rooms, great showers, Maria made a very good breakfast each morning. It is helpful having the owners on site. The pool was very clean. We all enjoyed our stay. We came from a newer and more spacious place that did not have air conditioning, breakfast or a pool. Thank goodness we booked Stefanys. It was a big improvement. Yes, we all agreed that we would come back here. USA folks- I can't speak for all hostels here, but Stefanys is a fine family run motel. Good for singles, couples and families with children. Nice bargain. Most taxi drivers knew where Stefanys was located. If they did not we told them that it was run by Giovanni. No problem, everyone knows him! The center of town is a 15 min walk down hill. Cabs are usually $2.00 for a ride to Stefany's (4 of us). Bring sun screen, bug spray, after bite and lots of small cash (dollars 1,5,10s). There are many affordable laundry mats here. No need to bring lots of clothes to lug around.

After travelling west to east across the date line, spending some 36 hours in planes or in transit, Stefany's delivered the perfect chance to unwind for 3 nights before joining a cruise. The place itself is quaint and maintained spotlessly. The hosts are family friendly and have helped with many minor emergencies from collecting lost baggage (by the airline) from the airport, to helping locate power chords list when bags had clearly been opened during their list period. Stefany's is about 1klm from town up a gentle hill. Our 8yo daughter made walk twice a day easily. There are several sites easily in reach if a day walk, but Stefany's will help organise taxis and tours. Rooms are comfortable, beds good and our had ensuite in room. Tariff includes simple breakfast, free internet and use of a small refreshing pool. Air con is in room, that some may find reassuring. We thoroughly recommend Stefany's Lodge.

Stefany's is across from a park which on one night of our stay hosted a VERY LOUD party, with dj and canned music, which made sleeping impossible between 10pm and 4am. The hotel tried to quiet the UNBELIEVABLY LOUD party, but why take a chance on a sleepless night when there are other choices?

My friend and I stayed here for our first two nights of the tour we had booked on to. We felt so welcomed here! Breakfast, whilst sitting down by the pool, was delicious. Our room was so so clean and fresh, with aircon and fresh towels. We also had a fridge which was already stocked with a selection of drinks (at an extra cost). It was about a 15/20minute walk into town - we felt quite safe to do this even in the evenings. A little bit of basic spanish is very useful! We had a great time here :)

This small lodging is very comfortable, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size, the pool is clean and a good depth, with a pool bar too. It's a little walk down to town, but a taxi ride will cost you $1.50 if you don't want to walk.

we moved here from another place which didn't suit us. What a shame we did not come here first...! Such a lovely warm welcome by the friendly Stefanny and her family. It was so refreshing to feel wanted and not just another guest. The room on the second floor was excellent. We had a sea view but bearing in mind it is a 15 minute walk from the sea here you only get a glimpse but we didn't mind that. The room was spotlessly clean and we had a fridge too which was great for storing our own drinks in. The fridge was also stocked ready with soft drinks and beers for when you arrived. Perfect. The AC worked perfectly and was quiet. The bathroom was spotless too and we had the biggest fluffiest white towels we had had in ages :-) Breakfast was lovely and served down by the pool (which we also used and it was great) Overall, i can't recommend this enough and would definitely stay here again if i am ever lucky enough to return to Galapagos one day. Thank you Stefanny, we had a lovely time at your lodging house

The rooms here were very nice and comfortable. Good showers, very clean. It is not directly in town but a short walk up the hill, so some take a taxi. Staff were very nice. The pool is pretty and with nice murals around it. Beds were comfortable and very clean. Aircon was useful .
