Then hostel has a bonfire each night and is close to everything you need here in SC. Jesus on reception was super helpful - thanks! Easy to organise tours which we did to Palenque. Breakfast was great and the blankets were amazing for the colder nights.

This hostel made our trip to San Cristobal - mainly because the staff were amazing, particularly one receptionist who went out of his way to try and get us money back on a trip when one of us fell ill. The campfire offers a unique evening, and encourages people to hang out and toast marshmallows - a real opportunity to bond with fellow travellers. The rooms are spacious, airy and the beds comfortable. Showers are warm and you self-contained so you gain a sense of privacy when washing etc.

Rossco was a great place to stay at while exploring San Cristobal de las Casas. The staff was helpful and the hostel had a great atmosphere, it was easy to find people to hang out and spend a good time with.

The best hostel I've stayed in so far! The have a bonfire every night making it a very social hostel. We came for 2 nights and stayed 5. Equipped with its own 'home cinema' it's the perfect place to go out one night and be hungover the next day. They also offer a tour that has 3 stops with palenque being the last stop so you can fit a tour in while travelling to your next destination. Location was great and staff are super friendly and helpful

Overall enjoyed my stay. They say they have hot water, and they do, and it is amazing. San cristobal can get chilly at night, but they make sure everyone has heavy blankets.

It's kinda out of the way, but staff are very helpful. We had a fantastic bonfire the last night I was there. Thanks, Rossco!

Awesome hostel in the heart of San Cristobal. Staff very helpful providing tips and maps as well as arranging tours. Comfortable beds with warm coverings and clean bathrooms a plus. Really can´t say enough positive things about the hostel. Of course, a heated pool would have been nice. Will return to Rossco Hostel when I visit San Cristobal again. There´s simply too much to do in one trip.

Very good location - only a couple of minutes to the main square and market. Wifi works great. You can book your tours there at good prices as well as your transfer to Guatemala. Breakfast includes tea, coffee, bread, butter, jam, bananas and cereals.

It was a very nice stay until the staff decided not to give us back the deposit for the pooltable because the money 'disappeared' and we apparently didn't pay. All in all recommendable, as it has everything you can ask for in a hostel.

Our room was located on the street side, so it was pretty noisy especially in the morning. Aside from that everything was good. They had hot showers, a nice breakfast, and several nice areas for mingling.

Me and my friend - 21 and 24 - from England and New Zealand stayed here, it was so great! Feels so homely, cute and welcoming. The staff were so nice and always willing to help with good english. We paid for a mixed dorm and got out in our own private room as the dorms were full for the same price! Everything was clean- really good clean showers, decent breakfast. Bonfire at night is good to socialise, but all so plenty of areas to hang out otherwise. Couldn't recommend it more! (:

The hostel had a really nice athmosphere with a central square where you could sit down to rest. We had a private room and it was very clean and quite big. It is also possible to book tours in the hostel, they are very cheap compared to similar tours. I would definately come back here, if I would visit San Cristóbal de las Casas again!

If you can make the shower in venus room work better. And get a stronger wifi signal around the the whole site this Hostel would be perfecto...

Really nice hostel with a great atmosphere! It's easy to meet people and the bonfire is nice. It's super clean, you constantly see a person cleaning something. They offer good tours too and we enjoyed the movie room. But it's quite noisy, we could hear the television as well as the music and people outside.

Great place to stay: Clean and quiet roomes, beautiful garden (with lots of dogs hanging around), very friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Breakfast was a bit below average (toast, cereals and 1 fruit). Good value for money, highly recommendable.
