Staff were friendly and helpful, location was excellent, and the breakfast was great. Showers were (thankfully) very hot! BUT IT WAS SO COLD IN THE DORMS!!! I had three blankets and was still chilly. And the common areas were so freezing as they are so vast, it put people off congregating there. To be fair when the weather is better I can imagine it is a really great hostel, but maybe some heaters in the dorm rooms would help as it was colder inside than out during the day!

Loved my stay at puerta vieja. Booked for two nights and ended up staying four, but could have easily stayed longer. The free breakfast is amazing quality and it's a great place to meet people - the staff and other guests were super friendly.

Loved this hostel. Really comfy beds, amazing breakfast, 2 options- hot or cold and freshly cooked for you. Beautiful building and garden. They put on a party for Mexican Independence Day which was awesome. The guy who runs it is so helpful and chirpy. Easy to meet people here as their is a great sense of community. Perfect location too.

The wifi is extremely poor in rooms. Most people were browsing the internet in the "lobby" area, where is was a bit better but still quite bad. The whole place is cold due to the style of the building, and very humid. If you wet your clothes during your stay they will definitely not dry out until you leave this hostel :D The breakfast is served from 8 to 10, and there are cooks to make the breakfast. Check out at 10:30(very early). Beds are very comfortable!

Had everything you could need and were very chilled throughout my stay. Given that its so close to the main squares in San Cristobal, this is one of the best places to stay in!
