Cool hostel, people made it better. Facilities were good. About 15min walk to the centre. Only bad thing there were ants on the wall next to my girlfriends bed in the dorm. If returning to san Cristóbal i would first look elsewhere. Overall a 3rating i feel is fair

This cozy, small hostel is quite possibly the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The lovely inner courtyard is a great place to hang out and meet other travelers. On cold nights, you can ask the staff to light the fire place in the small common area. The kitchen is very well equipped, so this hostel is perfect if...

This is a great hostel! It's small and cosy and has everything you need to feel very comfortable and at home. Dorm rooms are cleaned daily, beds made, and extra blankets provided for those chilly Chiapas nights. Bathrooms are always clean, showers are hot and the hostel provides a towel- a real, thick, water absorbing towel. Breakfast is great: fruit,...

I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend this place. The staff are fluent in many languages, always happy to help with any questions, problems or recommendations. The outdoor courtyards are peaceful and clean, the breakfast supplied is great and the rooms are full of character, whilst being comfortable and safe. It is centrally located, so walking to markets/restaurants etc...

This is the best-run hostel I've stayed at. The rooms are comfortable if a bit cold, and the free breakfast is excellent (they provide nice bread from a local bakery, not sad, bagged wonder bread like other places I've stayed in mexico). Everything is very clean and they provide free drinking water and have coffee available at all hours (for...

Nice hostel and an excellent value for the price. A little far to walk from the bus station with heavy backpacks but definitely walkable to nice shops and restaurants on Real de Guadalupe. Beds were clean and plenty of heavy blankets for the cold nights. We only stayed one night before heading to Palenque, but will surely return to quaint...
