My wife and I stayed here in January 2015 for a few nights. The hostel seems to cater to backpackers and anything on 2 wheels, in fact you get a free night (dorm) or discount (on private room) if you're on a bike or motorcycle. The hostel itself is located about a 10 min walk from the main plaza although... More

excellent location, lovely cabin-like private rooms, nice atmosphere, bonfires, nice staff, tour arrangement, beautiful common areas with garden, kitchen and movie room. the only thing would keep me from coming back is that they own a Rottweiler who they say is not aggressive but barks at people and acts like its going to skip the fence keeping him away from...

This was our first hostel experience whilst traveling and it was definitely a positive one. We had a private room with own bathroom booked and on arrival tehy gave us one downstairs near to reception. Unfortunately we asked to be moved as the room was quite dark and felt a bit damp. The staff moved us without issue to a... More

Locked very close to the market, this hostel has private rooms with a skylight, big beds, hot water in the shower and includes breakfast. They have a few dogs at the lobby so beware if it's bothers you. They also offer tours from the hostel

Nice place, very friendly people and environment. The dogs are amazing!! the rooms are clean and the bathrooms as well. It's very close to the center of town where you can enjoy a coffee break do some handcraft shopping and enjoy the city.

We stayed at this hostel only for two nights. Everything was great. The staff was very helpful always willing to help you organize tours around Chiapas. The rooms were very good and clean the best thing about the hostel is the garden. Every night there were bonfires at the garden. I really enjoyed my stay there. Strongly recommended

Rude staff on the reception and dingy rooms. OK so the wifi worked and breakfast was included but overall how this is ranked highly is hard to believe. We only stayed one night and left as soon as we could.

We didn't book in advance but turned up and got lucky with their last available room for 2 nights - a private queen room with bathroom. Roscoes has both private rooms and dorms. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, and the facilities are great for a hostel, more like a hotel! Breakfast is available each morning, a fire pit... More
