We went there after booking online, this hostel had some of the best review in the island for the price. The room was good, with a small kitchen, very convenient, and also very quiet. We are really surprise to read so much good comments about the host, with us they were cold, not helpful and we had the felling to annoy them. We thought we could ask them tips about what to do in Ayora, nice walk or nice beach, but most of the time we could see anybody in the hostel. After such a long travel and so much money spend to come in the Galapagos, we expect at least a smile and a « welcome ». Also the location isn’t great, quite far from the center, and uphill. To conclude, the room was clean and good, but the host weren’t as friendly as expected. I guess you can find a similar habitation but much closer to the center.

Pros: - The staff is amazing they are always glad to help you, calling a taxi or whathever you need. - the room was ok is a calm place. - we asked for a breakfast(we payed for it) but was nice. Cons: - it's far away from downtown puerto ayora, you need to walk around 20 minutes to the bridge. one day we woke up in the morning and we didn't have water to take a shower. Could be an island issue. - WIFI was not working ok. (could be an island issue) If you have rent a bike i believe could be a good option,but for us was too far away.

We really enjoyed our stay. It is 10 minutes walk to the centre, but we felt safe, so it was no problem. The owner was so kind, she helped with everything (in espanol ofcourse). She made us feel like home. She even did our laundry and she dried it as well.

The owners were really sweet, helpful and friendly! The garden was nice and cozy. However, the room (esp. Bathroom) was not that clean. The size was alright. Also, it is quite "far" from the center compared to other hotels (around 7-10 minutes). But therefore it was quiet at night.

My girlfriend and I stayed for four nights here. The lady was very courteous with us and carefully explained all the activities we could make not only in Sta Cruz but also in Galapagos in general. I'm very grateful for the family's hospitality. I would definitely stay again in here

Really enjoyed our stay at Galapagos Dove. It had a private and secure feeling as it is surrounded with a fence. Great value for the money. Staff were very friendly. Clean room every day with new towels. Hammocks with palm trees to hang out on outside. Staff helped us make sure we got a taxi to get to the airport on time. It's quite a journey to get to airport across the island, so that was a relief to have help. It's not right downtown (about a 5-10min walk), but I liked that aspect. You can get away from people, parades, parties, etc. Quiet and peaceful. In the morning you can hear birds, etc. I would definitely go there again if I ever return.
