I've been to over 30 countries and posada del abuelito is without a doubt the best hostel I've stayed in. It's so well organized, it doesn't even make sense! The family and the staff that run it are WONDERFUL, the breakfast is amazing. The fireplace at night, two blankets on the bed, warm showers, the vibe! The people that come... More

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and were extremely happy to find such a beautiful place for the money we paid. This place is absolutely GREAT value! We had a smallish private room but it was lovely and the shared bathrooms (which my girlfriend was a bit worried about) were fine. There is one individual bathroom between the... More

One of the best hostels I have visited. It has a full kitchen, with a beautiful stove/oven, a delicious breakfast, comfortable lounging areas, and beautiful landscaping. The internet is fast and the hostel is always clean. The showers are HOT! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I love that it has been owned by the same Mexican family... More

Best hostel I stayed in in Mexico. Breakfast was above average! Great coffee, delicious jam, and even eggs provided! Felt very home-y and staff very helpful. Marco offers a number of interestig activities / tours. I stayed in both a dorm room and a private room, both very comfortable and good value. Great location. Would highly recommend.

This hostel is well maintained, the kitchen is well stocked and the dorm rooms are spacious. Breakfast is very good as well. Location of the posada is spot on for site seeing in the city but quiet enough you will get very decent rest. The hostel provides a very handy fact sheet which shows they understand travellers. I highly recommend... More

A small cosy hostel with nice bedrooms, clean bathrooms and such a good breakfast. The place is very nice for the young and the less young. Tips for outdoor activities are available. This is the place to be to relax !!

Beautiful hostel, friendly and social staff, with well equipped kitchen and breakfast included - eggs cooked as you like, fruit and toast and homemade guava jam - yum! Loved this place and have been recommending it to San Cristobal bound travellers ever since.
