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.


This place is dirty please clean it up, thank you


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.


Nice hostel, Great breakfast. Fun bonfire. Downside was no power sockets in my dorm.


pretty nice place


Is a good hostel if you want to party and drink. Breakfast is very poor, a couple of slices of bread with tiny portions of butter already on the plate. The rooms do not have plug sockets so you must charge anything outside in the communal areas, which is a worry as people come in and out all day. Biggest problem are all the dogs, (counted 5) one is an aggressive Doberman that tried to bite a girl when I stayed there. Would only recommend if you like drinking with Aussies.


I enjoyed my experience. The only thing is how cold it is at night. Soooo cold. Extra blankets are needed!

Part of the staff was really friendly and helpful, but other staff members were really unfriendly. Also only part of them speaks English in the reception and if you are not good enough in Spanish you may face with some language barriers. Wifi sucks and the computer was out of order when I was there.

Awesome location & clean place to stay. Only downside is that there was wi-fi when we were there due to a recent tornado which is beyond their control but aside from that; it was in a great location! Some staff were a bit strict about noise & whatever so not a wild party hostel but still met cool people & enjoyed myself nonetheless :)
