Best hostel I've been to after travelling for 8 months. Great facilities, great breakfast, nice rooms and hot water. Couldn't recommend it higher!

Nice place to be. Huge dorms can be hot 'though, might be a good idea to get one of the dorms with aircon. Awesome breakfast. Alan is a nice guy, very pollute who manage the place. Good tips from him. Would come back definitely.
Delightful spot. Cooking arrangements more than adequate. Beautiful patios and gardens. Staff very helpful. Price most reasonable. Would recommend it to anyone. Talking to some others who had stayed at many hostels, this was their favorite by far.

Amazing hostel. Very clean and beautifully organized. Staff is very helpful. I totally recommend!!
Very unusual for a hostel, but a rule which I valued greatly was their noise curfew from 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM. Not a party hostel and I liked that very much. Not every traveler wants to stay up all night getting drunk, being loud, obnoxious, and partying.
I am not some paid off traveller, I just looove the posada..... it's like your loving granny (abuelito) ran a hostel..... there's a LOT of hostels in san cristobal, so can't honestly say it's the BEST hostel in san cris, but marco the day manager is the dude, so friendly and helpful, the breakfast is amazing, not the usual wonder bread and nescafe garbage....... bowls of homemade jam, mangoes, bananas, bottomless good coffee, plus they can fix you up with any tour you might want to take.....
Beautiful place, beautiful room! Little bit out of center but totally worth it!
This was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It was beautiful (hammocks, gardens, adorable dog). The breakfast was delicious (homemade bread and jam, eggs, juice, cereal, coffee, tea, fruit). If you stay here, be sure to pet their dog! The staff was helpful in setting up tours. When you arrive they show you around, and even have books of activities and tours (in English and Spanish). Be careful with your booking though! They are always very full and busy so book your full stay ahead!
We were a. Party of four! We really enjoy our stay the only bad point was is far away from downtown, you have to walk at night. Nothing happened to us but we were tired from the trip
You might experienced before a high rated hostel that is really cool but its kind of used and not very cleaned up. This high rated hostel is nothing like that! We rented a private room, bathroom was very clean, bed was comfortable. The place itself it is very well taken care. They offer you a nice and lovely breakfast. Bread, eggs, fruit, coffee, and you cook it all yourself. At night it gets chilly and our bed had comfy blankets. In my opinion this a great hostel for staying few days! ;)
The best hotel we have ever stayed in. It's clean, our bed sheets were changed daily. The breakfast included lovely fresh french bread and home made jam. Coffee and tea was also available throughout the stay. They also welcomed us properly on arrival giving us a map and informing us of good places to visit. The staff are lovely and will help you with anything. The hostel is nice and quiet which was a welcome break from party hostels. The location is also great, about 10 minutes walk from center.
My boyfriend and I stayed here during Semana Santa and it was a lovely hostel. The staff was amazing; everyone was extremely helpful and hospitable. The rooms and showers were super clean. Breakfast was delicious and I will miss the homemade jam. Thank you for giving us some wonderful memories!

It is an amazing hostel. The rooms were nice, the beds comfortable and the breakfast was very good.The staff was very helpful and nice and I enjoyed staying at the Posada del Abuelito because it is a lovely place with a welcoming atmosfere.
Posada Abuelito is little bit out of the center but in a very safe area. It´s a great place with great staff. They are very helpful, always come up with ideas and suggestions. They will take you on bike tours or they will suggest you some. I loved every minute there and would recommend this place to anyone.
Great hostel. Rooms and facilities are comfortable and clean. Nicest hostel I have ever stayed in!
This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at, period. The rooms are spacious and clean, courtyard is lovely, staff helpful, breakfast is amazing, and there's a well equipped kitchen. These guys really know what they're doing.
Great value for money, peaceful, a nice walk into town. We had a small double room with a squeaky bed but loads of blankets. The tours where great and super cheap.
Stayed there for 5 nights and met many long stay travelers, we all chat like old friends, joined the tour to Chamula and the guide Ceser is very good! Very nice homemade jam and kitchen for cooking. Feel like home when I lived there. Just the 4 bed female room next to kitchen near a neighbor with rooster , it weep aloud at 5 am each morning .
Excellent Hostal, great team, cheap and quality together. The Breakfast was EXCELLENT !
