I had an absolutely lovely time at this place. The family who run it are lovely people, calm and helpful and genuine. The hostel is pretty, the beds are comfy, the other travellers who stayed there when I was there were friendly and invited me out for beers (great to have company when you're travelling alone), the breakfast is generous. At night it was super peaceful and I probably had the best night's sleep I'd had for the whole of my trip (very important to me as I'm a light sleeper and was starting to think I'd go mad). I'm not big into hippy stuff, but I did get two great massages and tried the yoga in the mornings. When I came back to San Cris, I went back to Posada Ganesha and I met another girl who did the same thing - she said she thought about trying somewhere else but then thought it was so lovely at Ganesha that it could not be beat!
I don't normally write reviews, but what prompted me to leave this was that in addition to being a lovely, chilled, helpful place to stay, I left my iPhone in the hostel and they really went out of their way to get it back to me. They tried taking it to the bus stop to put it on the next bus (I was headed for Cancun and from there to London), but when the buses were on strike they researched the cheapest and most reliable way to send it to me in
London by mail, in exchange for me wiring them the cost of postage. This was really inconvenient to them and involved a lot of Skype calls whilst I was in Cancun trying to work out what to do - and they'd definitely have made a lot of money if they'd sold the phone, which most suspicious folk I told this story to predicted they'd do. No one in
London could believe it when my phone arrived in the post, sent by people I'll never meet again from a hostel I stayed at for a few nights in another continent.
Overall, five stars! Posada Ganesha, you are great people and your hostel is lovely!
