My stay here was amazing. Very relaxed atmosphere and all staff members were great. I stayed in both mixed dorm and private, facilities were clean. Staff clean the rooms everyday, make your bed, and change the sheets after a couple days. Other guests liked to stick to themselves but there were others who would hang out and have a conversation. Not a party atmosphere at all. Close to city center. Hostal can help with tours. However, one thing to keep in mind is the tours are shuttles that take you to Palenqu

Out of the three hostels I stayed at in San Cristobal, this was my favorite. It's small, but that doesn't mean there's a bad atmosphere—really, I met more people here than at the other big hostels I stayed at. The vibe is cozy, the kitchen is good, and the beds are comfortable. My only complaint is that the dorm is on a busy street and with the windows open the noise of the cars can be loud, so be prepared with earplugs if you're sensitive to noise.

Lovely hostel, spotless clean and good cooking facilities! They had free spices and bacteria wash for fruit/vegtables. Great location, about a 10 minute walk to the centre of San Cristobal/the market. We also did the Sumidero tour from the hostel which was good value. The atmosphere is very quiet in the hostel so if you want to party / socialise go outside the hostel or stay somewhere else.
