I stayed at the hostel for a week. It was a truly relaxing place. The hosts were super welcoming and friendly, the accommodation and the whole hostel was comfortable and clean, the work was easy as well… The work schedules were sometimes a bit unpredictable, but you have a lot of impact on that too. If you have plans to go on a tour one day, no problem. Then you just work later in the afternoon instead. The bar is a really cool place to go for yummy drinks and dancing. It’s the perfect place to interact with locals and other travelers. Muchas gracias for having me, was a pleasure 🤗

I really enjoyed volunteering here! The hotel was lovely, and Miguel was very welcoming and helpful & his friends too. The room was a great place to stay too whilst discovering the beautiful island :)

Couldn't have hoped for a better first experience at Worldpackers. I was welcomed with open arms by Miguel and his lovely family at their hostel and bar. I worked closely with Miguel, a guy who was open to talk and worried not only about my work as a volunteer but also that I make the most of what the island has to offer. The work itself is not difficult and exhausting. It consisted of manual work (painting walls, cleaning, sanding wood) and serving at the bar. I hope one day to meet them again, it was a great week in Isabela. Will be missed.

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it was honestly amazing! This is a family run hostel and they all were super kind and accommodating and wanted me to enjoy this experience and most of all the island. They were flexible with my schedule so that I could partake in activities and had good recommendations. I learned and improved some Spanish while doing the easy tasks for the hostel/bar. Perfect location and I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to see Isabella!

I had a great time at hostel Galapagos. I worked a few hours everyday with Miguel at the bar the hostel has, and had the first part of the day free to do tours and explore the island. It’s a really relaxing place, and the ocean view from the bar is to die for. The family is really nice and I will miss staying there!
