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.

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! (:

we arrived early in the morning from Puerto Escondido and they let us in the room and as well gave us breakfast. very, very clean and the showers work perfectly. the cleaning ladies are around all day. Stuff is very friendly and helpful. there are lockers in the room and after check out you can store your backpacks in huge lockers what is great.

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.

The staff were extremely welcoming and so willing to help us from booking day trips, to showing us local spots to go and organising airport transfers. It had a good vibe, open fire every night and our private room was awesome! very clean and tidy place with the bonus of a continental breakfast!

One of the staff members ran after us four blocks from the hotel to warn us that the taxi driver said there was lots of traffic that day and we should schedule our taxi to the airport sooner, so we wouldn't miss our flight. We want to say thank you so much for going above and beyond with that.

Cool hostel - recommend getting a dorm room with an ensuite. The bathrooms are located on another side of the courtyard leaving a very cold waiting line for the shower in the mornings. Don't go upstairs to the cinema room - very scary dogs in cages, the other dogs on the property are fine though.

Really excellent hostel near the zocalo. Facilities and the general setting, gardens and relax areas are perfect. The rooms are fabulous, especially no 12 with a great balcony, very clean and facilities are all tip top. The staff are super friendly and helpful, you can book all the tours here and buses to everywhere. A great place to stay in San Cristobel.
