The hostel enjoys close proximity to the town’s main squares, markets, and popular attractions, along with a more relaxed, quiet atmosphere on a less busy side street.

    Love this hostel! Wish I stayed longer. No need for lockers as everyone has a key to the building and all people are lovely and trustworthy. Very homely free breakfast, and activities like yoga and Meditation I wish I got to try. Really recommend!

    Wow! Planned to stay for a night and ended up staying in San Cris for 5 weeks... and La Isla was such a big part of that! Super chill home-y hostel. The different hang-out areas are all full of ambience and great to meet other travelers. Breakfast is in the kitchen full of natrual light from the glass cealing. They do a lot of great activities and all the staff are super kind and happy to help you out or chat. Best location right in centro, with anything you might need within 10 minute walk.
