My friends and I recently stayed here for 5 nights and had a great experience. The staff are the most friendly and helpful we've had on our trip so far! They gave us info on san cristobal itself, as well as other places we were planning to go afterwards. The included breakfast was always delicious and they introduced us to... More

We stayed at the hostel for two weeks while exploring the San Cristobal area and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hostel is not in the centre of town but its only 3 blocks from Real de Guadalupe where you will find bars, restaurants and other shops. Follow that street a further 3 blocks and you will come to the Zocalo.... More

The room where I slept was in the main hallway, close to the kitchen. This part of the hostel is often smelly and very loud because the only window in the room faces the hallway. The Wifi was pretty bad and the hostel is not exactly in the center (15 minutes walking distance). People were very nice though.

As a woman stated in her review, the staff who work at this place are touchy and feely with the women who stay at this place. They probably scout out young women they believe to be good looking at the bus station.The staff also behave as if they are guests in the hotel. There is a room very near to... More

My friend and I stayed in the private room on the roof that had a great view. But other than the nice lounge areas, that's about all that we liked about this place. It looked nice upon arrival because of the bright paint and the interesting decorations, but the rooms were furnished with beds that smell and the sheets were... More

If Carlsberg done hostels, it wouldn't be this. We arrived thinking great value until we saw the room, the freshly painted over mould was lovely added go the dreadful smell from the bathroom it couldn't get any more appealing. The bedroom doors are made from metal meaning every time they're closed it's like thunder.

Despite reading some negative comments for this hostel, I decided to check it out for myself. And am very glad I did....... The guys who run this place go out of their way to make you feel at home, its super clean and they check the shared bathrooms regularly topping up toilet paper and emptying the bins. There are 2...
