It offers a great breakfast of fresh fruit, bread, cereal, and eggs, and beer and wine are available to buy. It's clean, well maintained and represents outstanding... More

This hostel is a little gem: services, people, comfort, environment. My favorite was the breakfast: fresh baked bread, fruits, eggs, granola, home made jam. The kitchen was organized, clean and welcoming. We cooked our own dinner for the first time in a long time and we felt like home. If I have to say that something isn't great I would... More

This is one of the most comfortable & accommodating places I've stayed -- the staff are super friendly & helpful, the "living room" with fireplace is great on a chilly mountain evening, the courtyards are beautiful, bathrooms gorgeous, kitchen welcoming (not to mention clean & well organized), breakfasts delicious, beds comfortable...I am sure I'm forgetting some of the great features!...

I accidently stumbled across this hostel and, man, I lucked out. It's a hostel; I think many people who don't backpack regularly have a hard time understanding that. This was great. The hostel was located in a very convenient place, near the Zocalo, restaurants, laundry etc., it was very clean, rooms were carefully made up with extra blankets and lockers... More

Sparkling clean, all the fixin's. Like an interior design magazine in looks, there's a little room that has a towering stack of books, big fireplace you can use anytime and chess. Modest little garden where the sun hits all day long. Beautifully mosaic bathrooms, well stocked huge kitchen (with stove, toaster, toaster oven, real oven and so on.) Delicious organic... More

We booked a private room with double bed and private bathroom- the room was spacious and clean. Posada del Abuelito is in a good location, walking distance to everything in San Cristobal. The help yourself breakfasts were perfect and we really enjoyed our stay here. Fairly well priced as well.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I met lovely people, the hostel was very quiet and relaxing and there was a gorgeous, well-stocked kitchen. The employees were generally amazing, although the night guard was very grumpy.

Wonderful location, beautiful set-up, and great people. Quite close to Zocolo, everything is within walking distance. Take a bit to look at their binders for a lot of fun activities and trips around the state!
