    Amazing hostel! As I write this I have extended my stay here twice. The staff are so friendly, the hostel is very clean, the breakfasts are great and the location is perfect for walking around the streets of San Cristobal. My bed is also really comfortable. It’s quiet here too which suits me right now :)

    We enjoyed staying in the hostel. The family is very nice and the hostel is super clean (including toilets and showers!). It is a quiet place for relaxing and in the evening (10/11pm) it should be quiet - not a party hostel; you stay with a family. Negative: all rooms are accessible only from the atrium (which has a closed roof), all windows only face the inside of the building and cannot be opened - air circulation and privacy for couples was influenced by that.

    I had a wonderful stay at La Marucha for the Dia de Muertos weekend. The staff was super helpful, the area was very quiet at night and only a short 10-15 minute walk from the central park. The breakfast was very good, the facilities were clean, and the showers were hot. My only complaint was that as a solo, 22 year old traveler, I was hoping to find other travelers like myself to befriend and explore with. Instead the hostel mostly catered to families and elderly people during my stay.

    Great location! Really kind staff. Delicious breakfast that changes daily. Small rooms but comfortable. It’s a small hostel and only has two toilets and three showers but this wasn’t too much of an issue. All round would recommend!

    El lugar es pequeño, sencillo, pero está muy limpio y el desayuno es muy completo y rico. No está tan cerca del centro, pero es una distancia aceptable.

    We stayed at La Marucha for four nights and it was the perfect base to enjoy San Cristóbal. It’s a five minute walk to the main tourist area with dozens of restaurants, bars, shops and sight-seeing at its doorstep. The staff were very helpful and provided a choice of hot breakfast every morning. The rooms surround a bright, peaceful common area for eating, reading or just chilling out. Super clean, lots of hot water, amazing value. Highly recommend, would stay again!

    Great value for money and includes breakfast. Staff very sweet. Only one toilet for each women and men, and didn’t feel could use the kitchen but we seemed to manage more than fine. Bird outside your room and general talking of staff wakes you quite early (though many people are getting up for tours anyway). No ventilation for room but wasn’t particularly hot or cold for time of year.

    Really calm, wouldn't recommend if travelling alone off season as you won't meet many people, but really nice for couples. Staff is really friendly! Only downside is that they have a dog that is not yet potty trained, so he will p**s and s**t all over the common area. Be sure not to leave anything on the floor, especially not your backpacks before/after checking in/out, as they will get pissed on! As soon as the dog will be well trained, it'll be a lovely place though.
