My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Hostal Coloma. We stayed for 4 nights in June/21. The location is an easy 5 - 7 minute walk from the main pier. We received a warm reception from the owner upon check-in. The rooms are clean and standard sized, though do include a small kitchenette (sink, microwave, bar fridge). The shower water is warm (which seems to be not entirely common here). The breakfasts were fantastic - something a little different each day, with rotating fresh juice. There’s a wonderful little common space for guests to relax after a long day, with soda and beer available for purchase. We really enjoyed our stay, and will book again if we’re ever back in Puerto Ayora.
My girl friends and I came for a leisurely trip to enjoy what the Galápagos has to offer. We did not have any tours scheduled before we arrived. We were just going to “go with the flow” Surely, without the help of the owner and her excellent staff we would have had a more difficult time coordinating tours. She helped us coordinate trusted tours and we had a great time and saw a lot of beautiful nature in the Galápagos . We had really NICE breakfast everyday with new variety daily. The rooms were comfortable and beds were great, new towels everyday and laundry service if you want. AC is good too. They also have bikes to use and it was awesome, since id rather ride a bike then walk. Overall we had a really fun, comfortable, and SAFE stay here. I would highly recommend. Her hospitality and customer service is just incredible which means a lot to me. Super fun and would stay again if I have the chance. Thank you very much…
We traveled to 45 countries but have enjoyed our time in the Galápagos most of all. The hostal is only 2 blocks from the cities restaurants and ferries. The location could not be better. Every single detail was attended to by the husband and wife team. The rooms are very large and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is serve by a local woman who is an outstanding cook! Fresh vegetables and herbs are growing everywhere on the property. In fact, the guests outdoor seating area is under a grape arbor. The owners not only live onsite but the husband has a dental office next door... which came in handy for us when our daughter had a “tooth emergency”. We will be back!!!
The staff was super amazing and kind! The hotel is super cozy and really nicely decorated. It matches the whole Galapagos style. Ximena was super helpful and helped us with everything. The breakfast was great!
Ximena the owner makes sure your stay is perfect. From arranging airport transportation and local activities to a great breakfast each morning our stay was perfect. The rooms are large, clean and ours had a microwave and a fridge - perfect for leftovers or lunch stuff. Do not expect an Intercontinental or Grand Hyatt, but for a budget hotel in a great location Coloma is the best. We stayed 2 nights before a cruise and 4 nights after and wouldn't change a ting if we were to do it again.
