The location is great, close to everything in Puerto Ayora. You can fill in your water bottle as they have free water, wifi is good in the common area, not so much in the rooms. little kitchen with essencials, hot running water, clean and quite place. The staff is super friendly and always ready to help with tips or recomendations. A low budget place that has all a traveler needs.
Only some rooms had hot water, mine did not and my friend only had lukewarm shower with no pressure. One of the three of us had hit shower. Toilet seats either old and filthy or too small for the toilet. Location was close to the action and the noise. Luckily the air conditioner was loud enough to drown out the street noise and slamming doors. Linens clean and bed comfortable. Did not get value for the price paid
The place was ok for the price but then when the air conditioning broke at night, I called the front desk, one person came, I explain the problem, he said he was going to get help but never came back. I rang the bell of the front desk 40 minutes later, several times, nobody showed up. I had to sleep without AC. I did not mind the basics of the place because it was cheap but the fact that there is nobody to help with an emergency is not acceptable!!
This place is not a hotel and cannot be qualified as a hostal either, no atmosphere whatsoever. Very unfriendly receptionist. This must be the worse place I have stayed while backpacking. I stayed in room 6 which is in the first floor. There is a light on outside the window which is on all night, cannot be switched off. As the curtains are the cheapest type there is no darkening at all. The bathroom is really disgusting... smell of urine and with the hot weather it just stinks the room too. No chair, no hairdryer, no tv or music, no control for the AC which makes engine noises. I should have paid an extra dollar or two for a better surrounding. Each day I felt elated by the island beauty, the feeling was spoiled as soon as I went back there. I do not recommend this place.
No English speaker not even close. No hot water, no breakfast, beer only out of a bottle, no tv, SLOW internet. Location is good and close to the street restaurants and four blocks from the bay and a mile from the Darwin Research center. They also turn off the room refrigeration when you leave. You come back to a hot room. Pay a little more and go a little more up scale.
Stayed here three nights and liked the place. This is a comfortable little hotel well located in Puerto Ayora. Very good price, balcony outside the room, hot water and shelves to put you clothes and stuff. Downstairs had good kitchen you can use and fridge for your beer water ect. Only complaint I have is noise from air conditioner. At $35 it’s good budget option. Good location.
Our room was comfortable with a large bed and a single bed but these left little room for anything else and you could barely open the door to get out. The bathroom was very smelly as it had no natural ventilation. Shower was just okay. The communal areas are very tired and in need of re-decoration. Central location.
Had to find this hostel last minute as our original plan fell through, and I'm glad we did. The owner was so kind and helpful and offered my group of 12 our own beds because she had extra availability. The location is great, just a short walk to the port and the main street for restaurants. Rooms had AC and super comfortable beds, and free drinking water was offered downstairs. Would 100% stay again.
We (unfortunately) stayed here for three nights on our trip in santa cruz. We stayed in room 6. The room was spacious, and sparsely furnished (no table, just two beds and a small wardrobe), with a small bathroom. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting: it smelt strongly like stale urine (!!!), there was no hot water, no water pressure, and the shower drain was blocked with by hair and debris from the previous guests. The sink was leaking. We had no towels (upon asking at the reception we each received one, in a rather ratty/frayed state). The room and bathroom were very shabby, with cracks and dirty walls, and the door was difficult to open and close. The hotel looks really nice on the outside with its bougainvillea and flowers, but do not be fooled! We would never recommend this hotel, nor stay here again. …
The owner of the Crossman is very kind and accommodating. The room we stayed in was clean and simple. There was AC and a TV (which we didn't use). Breakfast was included in our stay. It was pretty typical with no frills and maybe could use a few tweaks to improve but it was sufficient. Location is good. Not a far walk from town and easy access to the road that takes you to Tortuga Bay. Also close to the street where all of the restaurants are located. We would stay there again.
