Such a wonderful hostel, home away from home. Gorgeous set up, hot showers, amazing breakfast, good coffee, walking distance to everything. Could have stayed here for weeks :) a comfortable break from the sometimes daunting hostel experience.

Loved this hostel. The staff were lovely and the layout is very relaxing. Only thing was that noisy rooster or whatever it was outside the female dorm (not in the hostel). Woke up a lot earlier than me!

I absolutely LOVED my stay at this place. I stayed in the female dorm but was the only one in there for 2 out of 3 of my nights . The hostal itself has a great friendly atmosphere - highlight was the fire in the common room at night! The staff were super friendly and made me feel at home and the location was great too. Breakfast was AWESOME - can definitely see why their jam is so famous! My other favourite thing about this place was the kitchen. So well equipped and very clean. Thanks so much!!

I absolutely loved this hostel! It is a bit far from the ADO bus terminal, so we had to take a taxi. But it is a 5 minute walk to the city center, so very convenient. The atmosphere in the hostel is amazing. The common rooms make sure you can interact a lot with other visitors and creates a nice ambiance. The kitchen is well equipped, and the private rooms are very pretty. Simon will tell you his English is not that good, but it's perfect! A must-visit!

Very nice hostel, we loved the garden which gave it a special atmosphere. The kitchen was one of the cleanest kitchen I have seen in a hostel and the breakfast was very good, especially the bread and the homemade jam. The room was very cool, but out of the 4 nights there, they "forgot" to clean the bathroom/empty the garbage 3 times (once we even tried to remind them, while once we had to point out that it was still dirty and the staff didnt look particularly happy).

Such a nice place, could have stayed there forever. Great atmosphere and comfy beds. The only place to stay in San Cristobal

This is a great place to stay at if you're looking for something more relaxed. If you're looking for a college hostel environment then this probably isn't for you. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable about the area. It's also very conveniently located in the city center.

We had a great stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful with assisting us to book tours and they helped orient us to San cristobal. The room was comfy and the breakfast was delicious.
