    I had a great stay at La Isla. I came here because I had heard about the spiritual residence program here and the magical energy in San Cristobal. The hostel offers free yoga and meditation for guests and you can opt to join the cacao ceremonies for a fair price. Everyone is very warm and welcoming and the family dinners are an extra special touch. Really nice chill vibes. I had such a great time here that I’ve decided to join the spiritual residency program!

If you want yoga and meditation, there are classes everyday 🙌 🤩. The washrooms are cleaned every hour and beds are cleaned daily. I love the family here 😍 everyone is so kind and loving ❤ thank you!

    Es sensacional !! Super cozy, & high vibration. This hostel attracts the nicest, most creative people. Best place to socialize, and also to come a closer to oneself; as the programs offered are specifically designed to target your spiritual growth. From the free yoga classes to the cacao ceremonies, from the cleanliness to the most friendly staff, everything was just super authentic and most refined. Thanks to Chriss, Herb, Alla and the wonderful volunteers whom I’ve have taken into my heart!

    This is a really good hostel, with good yoga and facilities included. A key point I’ve not seen in reviews before is that this hostel has an oven, which is great! The breakfast is not the best but staff are fantastic and welcoming. A very spiritual vibe here though so if that is not your thing I’d look elsewhere. I would definitely stay again.

    La Isla is a special place for those who want a built in community in San Cristobal. The hostel volunteers and staff are beyond friendly and welcoming and the free classes and breakfast are above and beyond what you would expect. These are huge perks! The hostel offers a spiritual residency program that is challenging and fulfilling. The many events hosted here attract and beautiful, diverse community, which contributes to the warmth and ambiance of the place.

    I’ve stayed at La Isla for a week. The atmosphere is very family like due to all the Volunteers staying there. It’s quite a cosy place to chill and have nice conversations, especially if you’re interested in spirituality. The kitchen though is quite small but I think everyone will manage. Overall a good place to stay in San Cris.

    WORST EXPERIENCE We paid for our stay and for 3 keys, when we arrived at the hostel, but later that day the staff said that we needed to pay more, because in ‘their system’ we had only paid for 1 key. They do not have surveillance camera, so the owner told us that we could pay (the hole amount of money again) or they would kick us out at 9pm. We refused to pay one more time, so we left the hostel (without getting a single coin back). SO think twice before booking your stay at this lying hostel!
