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!

What a gorgeous little place. We booked a private room with shared bathrooms. The room was a bit old and tired but ok. Breakfast was generous and staff were friendly. Great little place.

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.

Good location. Maybe 10 min walk from zocalo. Difficult to communicate with some of the staff if you don't speak Spanish. Not the most helpful. If you do any of their tours, keep in mind there may incur additional costs.

Super atmosphere, nicely decorated, very big and clean kitchen and common areas to chill out like the beautiful garden and the library. Beautiful rooms with lockers and service (they make youre bed)

The breakfast was amazing. The kitchen was really big and clean. Wifi was good. During our stay a couple of kids had got the master keys and were snooping around in people's rooms.

Pretty awesome hostel and cheap too! Awesome breakfast with loads of options and even eggs :) Staff don't speak English that much but they are real friendly. They even let me have an extra breakfast when I came super early on my first day. The hostel is super cozy and pretty, though their kitchen is quite small

Awesome breakfast

This place has really cool character to it, and the Italian guy that checked us in and out was incredibly helpful. Only real issue is the masses of dogs that join in choral harmony at night, but I suspect this isn't an issue specific to this hostel, but San cristobal in general. Recommended for sure

This hostel is just perfect, incredibly organized, helpful staff, spotlessly clean, and a really relazxing place to be in. Great value for money, which includes a simple and tasty breakfast. 5 stars all the way, this feels like a home away from home !

The hostel was excellent, comfy and calm. The free breakfast was delicious and the kitchen was well-stocked so it was easy to cook there. The staff was generally extremely kind and helpful, although the night guard was quite rude.

Excellent hostel. Made my stay in San Cristobal better than I thought it would be. Tasty and big breakfast, good dorms with plug sockets next to each bed, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a cozy feel to the hostel. I could of stayed longer. Location is great too, not far from everything.
