Rossco Backpackers Hostel in San Cristobal de las Casas Chiapas is world class tip top tier hostel 10/10 = 100%. The Best!
Rossco Backpackers is clean, comfortable and provides good atmosphere, particularly with the bonfire at night. At this time of year it gets quite chilly so it was a nice touch to be provided with extra blankets in our room. We stayed in a 4-bed dorm, one of the beds being up in a loft (such a score if you are allocated that bed). Breakfast was pretty standard; coffee, toast and jam. There are cooking appliances though so you can cook up your own additionals. Hammocks on the rooftop were mint.
This Hostel was the most clean i have ever stayed at. Really good. The bonfire in the eveningevenings are very cool to meet other travelers. The only disadvantage disadvadisadvantageis that It's cold in the night but you can ask for extra blankets.

Great hostel. Excellent atmosphere, really helpful staff, great location. Everything you look for in a hostel! They provide good blankets as it does get very chilly at night (7 degrees Celsius)! Can't sing its praises enough, would recommend to everyone Ps. I accidentally put the same review for yaxkin in Palenque, which did not deserve it.
Very nice hostel and very very clean. The only thing to remark is the small light bulbs in the room, so at night you can barely see. The rest was very good!
Very friendly atmosphere, big kitchen for making own food and chatting to others plus bonfire lit at night to sit around so social place. Only 3 bathrooms, think done rooms had their own, so sometimes a queue but only in the mornings, were pretty clean most of the tim No lock on doors but individual lockers with two charging points inside so could kick up all valuables. Plus staff always in reception, so felt pretty secure. Furtherst hostel from bus station but def recommend.
Unfortunately we only had two nights at Rossco but this hostel is amazing! Beautiful, friendly staff. The dorm rooms are cosy & clean PLUS you get a warm fluffy blanket which was COZY! Breakfast was great - cereal, bread, spreads + tea and coffee. Kitchen facilities made cooking meals easy. There is a movie room upstairs where you can watch movies and chill out. One of the best hostels we've been to in mehico! Enjoy!
Everything was perfect and the staff was extremely nice and funny !

Spacious dorms and good sized lockers. Plenty of chill space, a bonfire at night and showers were great.
Loved the free night for travelling by motorbikemotorbike! Bonfire is great to meet fellow travellers.
I really enjoyed my stay in the hostel. The staff was very helpful and they organise some great tours to sights around San Cristobal. The room was clean and there were lots of blankets on the bed. The hostel is just two minutes walk from the big artisan market and close to lots of bars and restaurants.
Very nice Hostal! I like my staying here, got to met cool people and the prices for the tours were below from other places. I was expecting to met more young people than families but maybe was just the season. I would recommend to stay here. Also the staff was very helpful and nice. The only inconvenient I had is that I was stolen a booze I had onto the bed in the shared room meanwhile I was touring, but lockers are secure. Everything else was good and nice. Also the beds had comfy blankets.
Really great hostel. Spent Xmas there. Comfy bed and hot showers. They also have a great bon fire every night.
Pros: very communal hostel, easy to meet people in the garden and around the bonfire. Very good breakfast and kitchen facilities. Big lockers and separate small lockers with power points for charging. Cons: dorms quite dark and cramped, and not locked.
Overall a good hostel, very clean. Staff helpful. Kitchen is great if you like cooking for yourself. Needs to be more bathrooms. Only 3 for the hostel, and it doesn't really have a common room so a bit more difficult to meet other people.
Excellent place! The staff are super friendly and accomodating, as are the hosts of the hostel. The common areas outdoors are a great place to socialize and overall the place is clean and in order. Nice if you want to just relax or socialize, and very conveniently located a couple of blocks from the main city square. Good value for your money. They also provide discounts for the tours that they offer.

I liked this hostel - it was clean and comfortable, but nothing extraordinary stuck out about this place. The beds were a decent size. Hot showers with good pressure. The kitchen was great and the knives were sharp which is an unusual find in a hostel. There were social activities going on but as it rained I preferred to just chill out. About a 10 minute walk from the centre of things. Would stay here again
The dorm I was in had separate small lockers with plug sockets so you could lock away valuables whilst they were on charge. Not seen this before in a hostel and I thought it was a great idea. The staff are welcoming and helpful. There are a number of cheap tours you can organise through the hostel. The bonfires in the evening were a great way to bring people together. I enjoyed my stay so much I extended it by 4 days.
Cool place. Unfortunate that it was raining whilst we were there because the bonfire wasn't really happening, but got better when the weather cleared. The place is really nice and the staff are cool, but it's pretty basic for showers, breakfast and mattresses. Overall a good stay for what it cost
This is a fantastic hostel. The staff are very approachable and incredibly friendly. The hostel is clean and well maintained and the beds comfortable. I really enjoyed having use of both the kitchen and the fire pit as both became very social areas. Really enjoyed my stay and would defiantly recommend.
