We had a great time at this hostel. It's really well designed with lovely double private rooms. The staff were super friendly and the whole place had a great atmosphere. It was a great location as well, close to all of the good spots in San Cristobal.

I stayed here for 2 nights and 2 days. First day they were out of gas. I could not cook. I washed rice to start cooking but I learned they are out of gas when I turned on the stove. They informed me that they will get gas tomorrow. Well, that screwed up my mood and dinner. Second day, they... More

We really enjoyed the week we stayed at Posada Ganesha. We stayed in the cabana right on the garden. Everything is decorated very nicely and is very clean and quiet and has a quaint garden space. The staff and owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The other people that were also staying were very friendly and nice. It is located... More

My partner and I stayed at Ganesha in mid January. We didn't really like the place. It did have character...nice decorations etc but wasn't a comfortable experience for us. Firstly...the showers were luke warm and sometimes not even that. And there's only 2 showers all the guests and each of these showers also comprises of a toilet. So 2 toilets... More

Posada Ganesha is a superb hostel wich cares a lot for details and cleaness. The place is very central, just 2 blocks from the city core but in a really quiet street. The hostel itself is beautiful, with garden, plants everywhere and nice, clean and richly maintained rooms. Really good breakfast plenty of fruits, granola and toasts, butter and jam.... More

If you love yoga take a class here on Tuesday or Thursday with Allen. Otherwise avoid this place. There are much better hostels in the area and you won't have to deal with dark rooms, minimal hot water, old beat up mattresses, dirty pillows, and one of the surliest hostel managers I've ever encountered.
