I love this hostel. It is an old ranch style home that used to belong to the owner's grandfather. It is has two really nice interior patios, a great kitchen (with a bomber breakfast!) and reading room. The rooms are well equipped and there are nice showers with hot water. Upon arrival you get a big fluffy towel with a mini bar of soap (it's the little things!). Also a good yoga and meditation center down the street, Casa Plena. Staff is awesome. Would definitely recommend.


I always stay here when I come to San Cris. A second home type of place. Great breakfast, tidy, quiet, warm everything is awesome!!


Excellent hostel with great staff and facilities - great value for money and worth the visit for Nili and Marco´s ´mayan medicine´ if you have a bad belly! Would definitely stay there again.!


Didn't end up staying here due to delays getting to San Cristobal but got an email from the hostel checking if I was OK when I didn't show up for my booking. That sort of concern shouldn't go unnoticed :)


This is a wonderful hostel with great facilities and a delicious breakfast that is included. Everything is organised really well and staff are helpful and full of information about San Cristóbal. We definitely recommend it! Bring warm clothes.


What a great place! The hostel is clean, warm, and with great ambiance. Everyone is helpful, specially Simon who helped me to book some tours and gave me good advice about the town. I will definitely stay again in this place. I've left with a great taste of San Cristobal and specially from Posada del Abuelito.


This hostel is great. Cozy dorms, supernice staff and a great breakfast. It feels like you have your own little neighborhood in there, because it is sort of built like every room is facing each other. It is really relaxed and they actually have a little fireplace. Overall great value for the money, and the bike tour is strongly recomended with Marco.


Very Good Place!

Loved this hostel, great atmosphere, friendly staff, good location and amazing common areas and kitchen! I would stay here again if I come back to San Cristobal


This place is compact but beautifully laid out. Very professionally run, these guys know what they are doing and run a tight hostel. Multiple areas to relax with the kitchen/ dining area being the focal point of an evening and a great place to meet other guests, well equipped kitchen, nice breakfast (cook your own eggs), short walk to the main pedestrian area, approachable staff, well priced for what you get.


Great atmosphere, stafff and comfort. Thanks for a great time!


Great staff. Good breakfast. Bathrooms could be cleaner. Homemade jam was super yum. Kitchen gets a bit crowded during breakfast as one gets 2 eggs that they can cook their style.
