I rented a cabin in the back garden and it was great (but cold). The cabins are basic but a great value-by basic I mean paper thin walls and a padlock. There are also very nice dorms and private rooms (some with fireplaces) and a lovely patio (plus firepit). This is probably the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at and the staff is quite lovely. I had a mixup with the price of the room and the owner got a bit aggressive when I questioned him but that was the only negative. I recommend this place.
The dorm rooms are very cold because the door doesn't close properly. The staff are lovely and helpful. A central location and secure.
It's been a very nice stay. Breakfast are very good: pancakes! The hostel proposes many tour: el canon del sumidero and others. It's 5 minutes walking from the zocalo. We slept well but as the weather was cold and humid so was the room. Sheets were a bit old. And we couldn't make fire in the chemniney of our bedroom, the wood was too humid. But apparently it's like this in all san cristobal. But overall we really liked our stay!
I found it to be a little disappointing, which is a shame as it wouldn't take much effort to improve it a lot. My "single private room" was nothing more than a bed in a wooden cabin. There was no bedside cabinet or mirror... just a bed. The walls were very thin. The wooden blinds on the window could easily be seen through. Wifi had very poor range and didn't reach my room. On my first morning the breakfast had all gone by 9.45 The shared toilets/showers were clean and the staff were all lovely.
Friendly, simple, comfortable, nice homy feel, perfect for short or longer stay. Excellent value for money. The courtyard is spacious, and there are many options to relax or mingle: couches, tables, hammocks. The staff is very friendly and take excellent care of guests. The general atmosphere sits more on the quiet than the party side. It was perfect for me!
We will definitely return soon!
