We've booked this place based on a recommendation and the online appearance. You really shouldn't. The place is supposed to be spiritual and relaxing. Maybe it's some kind of Mediation to exist in a room barely bigger than the double bed in it. The room wasn't clean and had not a single window, the bathroom was semi clean and really...

Casa di Gladys is very conveniently located close to the artisan market, restaurants and bars. The hostel has a quiet garden to catch your breath from busy days of shopping. I also enjoyed having the use of the kitchen to keep from eating every meal out. I highly recommend this hostel to both singles and families, as it is not...

What a wonderful place. All the rooms have different vibes and colors, which makes you feel like walking into a new fairytale everytime. You definitely feel the love and effort that has been put in there. The kitchen has everything you need, and the shared terrace and garden are nice places to spend your time reading/relaxing/talking with other guests. The...

After seen the pictures of the hostel we decided to stay there. But the first room we got was super cold and the door left about 20 cm open to the wall. Since its just about 5-6 degrees celsius in the night, that is not very nice. In the end we got a new room, which was a bit warmer,...

I have stayed with Gladys twice now. The first time, I was with a friend and we kept mostly to ourselves. Our privacy and shyness were respected completely, though I did get the chance to meet Gladys and I fell immediately in love. She has a great energy! The second time I went to San Cristobal, I went back to...

So we arrived at night on the 27th of December and found the town was booked solid. We were carrying a tent and chances across this place a few long blocks from the city centre.We unfortunately don't speak Spanish and had a broken conversation with the night manager (who was lovely) and because we arrived late we didn't have any...

My partner tried twice to go to the meditation that was supposed to take place at 5pm. Not today.. tomorrow.. twice in a row.. also we visited rooms but decided to stay elsewhere as we food it too expensive for the quality of the rooms.

We apologise for the inconvenience. At the time, Gladys was experiencing health issues and was unable to host meditation sessions for consecutive days. Once again, apologies for the inconvenience caused.

After a bad experience in another hostel, some nice travelers whom I met in a bar sent me over to Gladys' Hostel. My main thing was price efficiency, cleanliness, friendliness and running hot water (it's cold in the mountains) and Gladys went above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. The place was clean, smelled nice, the beds...

Very quiet and relaxing place. I loved the garden with all the plants and trees. Rooms are nice and clean, beds are comfortable, with many blankets, so it is not cold at nights. The staff is really friendly and smiling. It was a great expirience, thanks a lot!

I stayed here for one week and it was the best hospitality I've experienced in Mexico! Gladys, the woman who owns the hostel, is a colorful, energetic eccentric soul. She was very accommodating, helpful and up for tea and a chat any day. The rooms were cosy, clean and inviting, and the kitchen was fully equipped with a refrigerator, utensils,...

We have a living room with fireplace, a family-sized kitchen and dining room, a large garden and a second story terrace to help you unwind and enjoy a tranquil stay.

Other amenities include free wifi, free coffee, hot showers with towels, local and surrounding area tours and a 24 hour reception desk.
