Excellent staff, location and atmosphere. Communal bathrooms leave a little to be desired at times. But a great place for a good price. I would stay here anytime and encourage anyone considering where to stay to look no further.
Staff need improve a lot their english. Otherwise, it`s a nice confortable place.
Good value hostel with great rooms and breakfast. Because of its size it's a bit gloomy when it's not full in the off season
The hostel was comfortable and clean. The shuttles and tours are good and are priced very well compared to other hostels and agencies. The staff was at best cooperative when asked about tours and information.
Great hostel with lots of friendly dogs and a nice bonfire and pool table. Good location too.
Great hostel. Awsome nightly bonfire. Very clean and staff very helpful. Do the working tour. Great way to explore the city when you arrive.
Bonfire is a great way to meet people, good location and comfortable facilities. Wonderful staff! San Cristobal in general is amazing. I didn't want to leave.
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.
It's exactly what you need for this town. All the positive things you can think of apply here. Will visit again.
Great hostel. Grounds and staff and rooms are amazing. Good location. Nice vibe. Good breakfast.
Very friendly staff.... Great rooms plenty of blankets as it gets cool at night!! Good location
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.
Best hostel in Mexico! The bonfire evenings are great. Not so great when the staff extinguishes the fire early.
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
Great bonfire at night everyday. They have tours and staff are very friendly. Highly recommended!
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.
