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.
