Galapagos travel advisor - Mainao hostel review & details

Galapagos hostal Mainao

"Hostal Mainao is a brand new Galapagos Hostal Mainaohostel in Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos archipelago.

The idea of Hostal Mainao started 10 years ago, it was actually a 6 room home to share with my 2 daughters, Maile and Naori. What we had in mind was to have a place for our vacation time, as time went by my daughters grew and the house became a little too big and empty...

We decided to start offer hostelling for the many tourists that came to our Island taking advantage of our local knowledge and the strategic location of our property. We are well away from all the noise in the port so our guests enjoy some peace and calm yet close enough to visit town.

My experience with travellers as a tourist guide has given me knowledge of their expectations regarding service and infrastructure, I have applied these to my hostel. As I gained experience being the owner-hostel manager I started the construction of new quarters, today Hostal Mainao has 10 rooms, we plan to have 4 blocks with a total of 16 rooms.

The style of construction is similar to quarters in Arabia or Marroque with nice gardens and inner patios. Our small hostel is haven for guests in search comfort and tranquility. The name Mainao is inspired in the combination of names from my daughters MAILE & NORI.

Welcome, you are invited to visit us in the Galapagos Islands."
