Property Information:

Puerta Vieja Hostel is your best choice to experience San Cristobal from the very heart of the city centre. We are only one block away from the main square and a five minute walk to the main pedestrian areas where the best bars, restaurants and clubs in the city are. We will be happy to provide you with information on what to do during the day or when going out at night.

The building is a big neo-classic house, though modernly refurbished to meet the traveler’s needs. The fun and friendly atmosphere will make you feel comfortable immediately, along with our accommodation options, which are suitable for all families, individual travelers or groups of different sizes.

    The hostel is in a great location. The free breakfast is very good, and there's a different event on every night, such as free cocktails, dinners, etc. The dorms rooms are very cold even during the day and warmer blankets should be provided. Luckily there's always hot water in the showers to warm you up. The lockers in the dorm rooms are big enough to store a large backpack. The kitchen could have some better utensils available for guests to use. Overall a very pleasant place to stay.
