So clean, so friendly, really good free breakfast. Showers were amazingly hot. Stayed in a private room with shared bathroom, definitely one of the nicest hostels we have stayed in on our travels with a well equipped and clean kitchen. Common areas are great and there's even a room where you can light a fire!

The posada is so charming and authentic. We stayed in a private room around the patio and i just loved that place. The breakfast was so yummy, everything homemade, from the bread to the butter... simple but great. The people working there were also very nice and friendly, but we had some episodes with the cleaning lady who forgot to...

This hostel is obviously a popular place in town and for good reason! Everyone is very friendly, the set-up is quite nice with lots of outdoor garden space to hang out, and the breakfast (which you prepare yourself) is very nice. The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathrooms and showers are awesome and everything is extremely clean with a fresh...

We stayed in a private double room (shared bath) and found this hostel great. Comfy room, delicious breakfast and a good mix of fellow travellers. There tours are cheaper than those found in town. We originally booked 2 nights but extended further as the city and hostel are both very nice. However, after our second night we were told to...

Having stayed in many hostels over the years this has to be the best. The price was a hostel price but it felt like staying in a good hotel with all of the benefits of a hostel. We had a private room with bathroom. Towels and toiletries were provided and a locker in the room. Very comfy bed with good...

We stayed in a double room and had a great time at this hostel. Felt like it was a place that wasn't ran to make money but to ensure that guests enjoy their stay. Rooms were clean with towels etc, price reasonable, location good and we found every one that worked there really friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again...

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
