Possibly one of the best hostels I've stayed in after travelling for close to a year. The place is spotless and they offer a huge breakfast included in the price: big bowl of fruit (3 different kinds), bread, jam and butter, coffee tea and 2 eggs to cook however you like. The rooms are cosy and while it's not a...

Beds are very comfortable, kitchen/bathroom and common areas are always spotless. The place has an awesome laid back feel to it and the staff are of the highest quality & the owners should be very proud. Volunteers working between the 12th and 19th of April are a solid 10/10. We will miss this place and the BREAKFAST!!. Thank you to...

I stayed here for four nights and had zero problems. The staff were there 24 hours a day to help me and answer any questions I had regarding San Cristobal or the tours outside of the city. I was sick for a few days and they even gave me medicine and told me what to get from the pharmacy. These...

Great hostel! Checked in for a day, ended up staying waaay longer for the nice, friendly vibe. Location is perfect, 5 minutes walking distance from the touristic center, 10 from the awesome market(s). Grocery and convenience stores, laundry, eating shacks and restaurants right at the corner. The whole hostel and the bathrooms couldn't be cleaner, the rooms, private or dorm,...

Between the excellent breakfast and the chill vibe of Casa Gaia you're sure to have a peaceful stay in San Cristobal there. The hostel was always clean and theres a well equipped kitchen and a beautiful back garden to enjoy your meals! Definitely would recommend.

We stayed in a private room in this very comfortable and friendly hostel. Although it was run by volunteers it was a small hostel and the manager ran a tight ship. It was always very clean - the bathrooms were cleaned maybe 4 times a day! And we felt very relaxed there - no parties here.There was a garden to...
