Wasn't sure at first but this was a decent hostel. Its a big place and definitely more on the industrial side so don't expect the personal touch. Bar was cool although a little out of the way and could be pretty quiet but did meet some cool people there and had a laugh. Bathrooms were communal but kept clean. It's a couple of blocks from main square so very good location. Breakfast was excellent with 3 different choices each morning. Bunks had privacy curtains which was also a good touch.

The actual hostel is pretty cool - lots of good common areas, really comfy beds and a nice bar. And the breakfast is amazing - it changes each day and you can pick what you would like. But it lacked atmosphere and staff were not very friendly!

10 out of 10! Loved this hostel. It had an awesome bar that offered theme nights like live music, free mojitos and free cocktails along with an option to purchase dinner every night. 24 hour reception so it was secure and help available whenever you needed. Awesome staff that were welcoming and friendly. The staff also prepared a delicious breakfast. Atmosphere was awesome too with quiet areas to nurse your hangover or more social options to make friends. A must for San Cristobal!

Great location near the city centre, very sociable hostel which hosted cheap dinners and free drink nights. Dorm beds were very comfy and had privacy curtains.

Lovely hostel with great vibe and lots happening. Bit of a party hostel and the strict quiet hours rules are not enforced so don't come here for an early night. Also, the wifi is really, really, really bad (worst I've had in Central America). Would cut out completely every 10 mins or so and was agonisingly slow when it did connect.

Sick hostel. One of the most social I have ever stayed in with cool events on every night I was there. Also has super comfy beds with curtains around the bunk which was nice.

this is definitely a party hostel, but the party is for everyone. there are free drinks on tuesdays and fridays and breakfast is delicious! the hostel is in the perfect part of town, super close to the center but just removed from all the noise. the wifi is horrible. if you're a light sleeper consider a private room or ear plugs. the bunks rattle whenever people walk into the rooms. overall a great experience, would stay here again.
