Staying at Blue Bamboo is more like staying at a friend's house than a hotel. Zofia and Steven were really friendly and helpful. They let us check in at 7.30am after a hell overnight bus ride, Zofia gave me herbal medicine for my sick stomach and even made a special breakfast to suit my food allergy. The house itself is...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bamboo. I'll even go as far as saying that it was our favorite guest house of the 2 week trip in Mexico. The owners resemble the city of San Cristobal : friendly, relaxed, soulful. They were very knowledgeable regarding the various places to eat or visit and we found their advice always... More

I stayed 4 nights at Blue Bamboo. It was the perfect place to land after a rough bus ride from Oaxaca - Zofia and Steven were welcoming and it felt good to be in a home-y atmosphere rather than a hotel. Zofia was helpful with everything from booking tours to ideas of places to visit in town and we had... More

We, swiss-peruvian-italian couple, stayed 6 nights at Blue Bamboo in November 12. It was our first choice and we liked it from the beginning. If you have passed your wild party years and want to feel at home in a quiet environment with great and warm hosts (Steven and Zofia) & staff.... Blue Bamboo is a must! Yummie breakfast, bright...

I really, really liked this guest house. It's all about the hosts. Sophie and Steven are wonderful people. They were friendly (but not overbearing) and generous (lending advice and books). I enjoyed their company - watching movies, getting directions, chatting. The room I had was very nice and very clean. It was cold a couple of days when I was... More

My mother and I arrived in Blue Bamboo after spending a rather cold and damp night in another hostel in San Cristobal. We were so glad to have moved! Like the rest of the house, our room was bright, clean and tastefully decorated (not to mention warm and dry). The breakfast each morning was wholesome and delicious, and Sophia was... More

The Blue Bamboo is a beautifully presented guesthouse run by the wonderful Zofia. Both she and her partner Steven have created place to stay that is peaceful while also being great value. The breakfasts were second to none and Zofia was helpful in recommending resturants and things to do in and around San Cristobal. This was our best stay in... More

This guesthouse is led by a polish-american couple and was only opened one month ago. Therefore everything is brand new. The rooms are absolutly beautiful with large windows towards the small gardens. The interior design is super tasteful with large rooms including a queensized bed, a small table, a towelrack, a large closet including a safe. The bathrooms are clean... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome home to the Blue Bamboo Guesthouse.In San Cristóbal there are many expensive hotels and there are many cheap hotels; we are neither of these. Our prices are on the economical end of the scale but not at the bottom; we pride ourselves on clean comfortable rooms in a relaxing setting with a delicious breakfast and good travel advice.If you want to impress business clients with ornate glass walls and designer furniture, we might not be for you. If you want to sleep as cheap as possible to save money for beer and party all night, we are definitely not for you. But if you want good rest, good food and good advise, then this little gringo-owned guesthouse just might be the perfect little place to call home, away from home. ... more   less
