Property Description

Bienvenidos a Qhia!

We are a community of backackers and a loving, adopted dog named Chucho, with a passion for adventure, health, and wellness. Qhia is a place for rest and rejuvenation where you can feel at home in a peaceful setting, surrounded by an abundance of trees and various ornamental and medicinal plants. We also have 2 terraces and a cozy living room with a fire place where you can enjoy the sunrise and sunset, do yoga etc. We are not a party hostel and we do not promote the use of drugs and alcohol.

We have various connections to easily accessible adventure sports such as: rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, canyoneering and hiking.

We are eco-conscious and value sustainability. Our kitchen is vegetarian only. We recycle our grey water, store rain water for future use, and have a compost that goes to the project 'Pies a La Tierra', a team in Parque del Encuentro who has an organic garden and gives workshops in Agroecology.

We are located down the street from the Mercado de Artesanias and Mercado Viejo (the largest market in San Cristobal). We are also just a 10 minute walk from the Catedral de San Cristobal.

Free Wifi is included, however a better quality Wifi catered to digital nomads is also available upon request for an additional fee.

We welcome anyone who resonates with our values, energy and our home.

With love,

The hostel has nice facilities especially given its low cost. Unfortunately, it's very poorly managed. After booking & paying a deposit, I and others I know were told on arrival that there was no room for us. Later on, after giving the place a 2nd chance & staying for some time, I booked & paid for a full week, but I was asked to leave mid-way due to manager's mistake that caused double booking. I and other guests also felt uncomfortable by manager's inappropriate physical & verbal advances.

It’s fine for a night but I wouldn’t stay here again. Our room was not clean. The sheets were clearly not washed and smelled of other people. There was no soap in any bathroom. The owner was a bit off putting and made us feel very uncomfortable. The check-out time says 12 everywhere but it’s actually at 11 and we’re forced to get out in under 10 minutes.
