This place was great. Not much going on, but there is the nicest garden and it is good if you need some Quiet days. Simon, the french manager is very helpfull and theres a great atmosphere. And the great dog Flaca!

This little hostel was charming, comfortable and had a great breakfast. The only thing I would say against it is that they advertise quiet time after 10 p.m. but some of the staff (and guests, too) broke their own rule until the wee hours of the morning the night my friend and I had to leave early the next day. If anyone is in the courtyard, everyone in the hostel can hear them. The rule is a good one and it's a bad business practice to advertise something only to have staff break the promise.

Great hostel. The staff are incredibly helpful and have a handy guide book with trips and tours. The breakfasts were great-amazing bread and home made jam and 2 eggs per person. The coffee machine is turned on at 4 which is lovely if you have an early start.

Unfortunately there where no lockers in this hostel. Other than that it was a really nice place with a lovely garden, really nice and helpful staff, cute animals and an amazing breakfast. You get easily in touch with other travellers and when I arrived early in the morning I was invited to have breakfast right away. It is placed four blocks from the city center but I gladly walk that distance to stay in a hostel that nice.

Probably one of the nicest hostels with the nicest staff. The breakfast that's included in the price is wonderful. The place is homey though not that close to the center but for some that's a good thing ( for us it was ). The loftiest hostel bathrooms I ever seen! Comes highly recommended!

We loved La Posada del Abuelito! After being on a bus for 12 hours, we arrived to find ourselves in a lovely, peaceful garden with bursts of color and plenty of places to sit and relax. There was someone playing Spanish guitar, so it was like walking into a paradise. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, and they provided us with lots of blankets because San Cris wasn't the warmest. Marco was extremely helpful and professional, and the breakfast was hearty and delicious!

Highly recommend this hostel. We arrived early in the morning after an overnight bus trip and were luckily able to check in right away (private room). We were also invited to have some breakfast (yes, the jam is awesome!). We booked two tours through the hostel. The village tour to Chamula etc was excellent - Ceasar is a fantastic guide. The staff also arranged for us to have breakfast before we left for the Palenque tour at 5am! That was a nice surprise. The staff were welcoming and helpful.

Great place, great breakfast and kitchen facilities. Hot showers and bathrooms were always perfectly clean. We had a double room so didn't stay in the dorms but it's one of the best hostels I've stayed in.

What a great little place! Great place to relax, meet other travelers, read, or just hang out. Very quiet but everyone chats over the free breakfast (the jam is amazing) or in the little nooks around the place. The beds are super comfy with 3 large blankets for the cold San Cris nights and the water is hot hot hot! Very clean, very comfortable, friendly staff. I was very sad to leave!
